If you are looking for a new organization to get involved on campus, and have at least a 3.0 GPA with two or more semesters left of college and have completed at least 12 credit hours, come check out the National Coed Honor Fraternity Phi Sigma Pi!

We are a co-ed organization that brings the best elements of an honor society, service club and social fraternity into a fusion of Scholarship, Leadership and Fellowship. Phi Sigma Pi is an active campus organization at West Virginia University and offers a wide variety of experiences for our members. Ranging from academic programs and leadership opportunities to service projects and social gatherings, our activities celebrate the diversity of our members and promote the qualities of involvement and Brotherhood. Most importantly, we are seeking new members who are friendly, well-rounded and interested in making an impact on campus.

Because this message can only begin to explain Phi Sigma Pi, we hope you will attend a Meet PSP Night to learn more! There will be two of these information meetings:

– Monday, August 31st – 7PM – E. Moore Hall (Downtown)
– Tuesday, September 1st – 7PM – Rhododendrom Room (Lair)
– Wednesday, September 2nd – 7PM by PNC in the Mountainlair
– Thursday, September 3rd – 7PM – Lair Green

The Meet Night will be your opportunity to learn more about the organization and meet the Brothers of the Alpha Mu Chapter. You only need to attend one of these informational meetings in addition to interviews on Wednesday and pizza on Thursday! ( but attending both would give you the opportunity to meet even more Brothers). Please feel free to invite any friends who also meet the requirements – we would love to meet them! Eligible students will currently have completed at least 12 credit hours, a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 and 2 remaining semesters at West Virginia University.
