Psi Upsilon announces its recolonization efforts at our historic chapter at the University of Michigan!

We are looking to rebuild the chapter with men of excellence. This recolonization is a re-founding of the chapter to achieve the values it was created for. We are looking for men with moral leadership, responsible social conduct, a desire for service to society and intellectual engagement, all while establishing a lifelong friendship.

The University of Michigan is filled with traditions, each unique and special.

The Phi of Psi Upsilon

Founded in 1865, the Phi chapter of Psi Upsilon has over a 150 years of tradition making it one of the most prestigious fraternities at the University of Michigan. The chapter house, located at 1000 Hill Street, is a historic building designed by Albert Kahn - architect of many of the classic buildings at the University of Michigan including the Burton Memorial Tower, Hill Auditorium, the Hatcher Graduate Library, and William L. Clements Library.

Psi Upsilon brothers share similar ideals, hopes and purposes bonded by deep friendship and mutual understanding of lifetime friendships. Fostering high standards, each member embodies timeless ideals, aims, and principles. Each aspires to make a significant contribution to their university, to their fraternity, to their communities and to their country; to adopt and fulfill significant life goals; and to achieve the highest moral, intellectual, and social excellence.
