Chapter History


The Gamma Delta Chapter was Chartered at West Georgia College on November 12th, 1995. Since then, this chapter has been actively striving to make Phi Sigma Pi an integral part of the University of West Georgia Campus.

Early Years

In the Spring of 1996, West Georgia College was upgraded to a university, thus changing its name to the State University of West Georgia. The following winter, the Gamma Delta Chapter went inactive for a short period to plan a successful recruitment. This recruitment took place in April 1997 and produced the Alpha Class, 83 new brothers.

Unfortunately, only three of these brothers (Amy Johnston, Jamie Painter, and Jaime Easoz) returned in the fall. These brothers with the help of the National Headquarters planned and implemented successful recruitment process. The end result was the Beta class, which was comprised of 27 enthusiastic brothers. The Beta and remaining brothers of the Alpha Class banded together to reconstruct the fraternity and build up a reputation on the West Georgia Campus.
