Gamma Psi Traditions


Every semester the Gamma Psi chapter welcomes new members into its brotherhood. Interested parties are referred to as Potential New Members or PNMs for short. Recruitment is a week starting off with two info sessions and then a series of fun events to help PNMs and brothers get acquainted and to see if the brotherhood is a good fit!

During the week brothers and PNMs are also able to sign up for Brother Lunches, Wawa Runs, CW Walks, and Stargazing outside of the normal recruitment events. These activities each count for 1/2 of a recruitment credit.

Each PNM is required to achieve a minimum of 3 recruitment credits. During the week PNMs are also required to ask two brothers to speak for them at voting.

Philia Phriends

Every week after pinning potential bigs are given a list of littles to go on 'Philia Phriends' with. These get to know you dates usually consist of potential pairs getting together and doing something they both enjoy, or if the week is particularly busy potential pairs will find themselves chatting over a meal or in Swem. The bigs traditionally reach out to their batch of littles for the week with an in-depth email of their interests and availability to which the littles will respond and set up a date.

Pref Week and Clue Week

With the Big/Little system being one of the most integral parts the Gamma Psi brotherood, Pref Week and Clue Week are understandably the most anticipated weeks each semester.

Pref Week kicks off exactly one week before clue week starts. One event each day brings all the potential Bigs and Littles together for some PSP fun. The events tend to change each semester except one: Iron Chef. The Bigs and Littles are divided into teams and then sent off with a small budget to create the most tasty dish they can with the given secret ingredient. The Bigs and Littles get quality time to decide who they are going to pref and E-board gets some yummy food during the judging portion of the event! Many Big and Little pairs have been decided at this event. Pref Week ends with the Bigs sending in their "pref" of Littles and the Littles doing the same for the Bigs.

Clue week begins once the Initiate Advisor matches the Bigs and Littles based on their prefs. A week of pampering, mysterious notes, clues, and instructions begins for the Littles. The Bigs try their hardest to remain unknown to their Littles and the Littles rack their brains to determine the identity of their Big while they munch on the large amount of candy they have received. As much as the Littles may not want the pampering to end, it does that Sunday at Initiation. The newly initiated Brothers learn the identity of their Big and the identity of their new family for the rest of their stay at Willam and Mary.

Gamma Psi Families


Battledog (n.) - a small but ferocious canine. The largest family in the Gamma Psi Chapter.


A mythical creature typically depicted as a large powerful serpent or other reptile with magical or spiritual qualities.


Fox — a carnivorous mammal of the dog family with a pointed muzzle and bushy tail, proverbial for its cunning. Alternatively, someone who is very attractive. New foxes will be known as foxlets.


A mix of the large bear-like mammal with characteristic black and white markings, native to certain mountain forests of central and western China and the species is distinguished by an upright gait, a matriarchal and egalitarian culture, and the prominent role of sexual activity in their society. It feeds almost entirely on bamboo and has become increasingly rare.


Phoenix — in classical mythology, a unique bird that lived for five or six centuries in the Arabian desert, after this time burning itself on a funeral pyre and rising from the ashes with renewed youth to live through another cycle


Polar bears have big hearts and take care of their own. Our fur is clear, not white. ~Also known as the Ice Family~


1. Person transformed into a wolf or capable of assuming wolf form. 2. The state of being "go thick." Family Goal: The Blood Moon
