Why Phi Psi?

Phi Kappa Psi, California Epsilon (UCLA) was founded in 1930 and is one of the oldest social fraternities at UCLA. With over 200,000 initiated brothers and over 130 chapters nationwide, Phi Psi is one of the most prominent national men's fraternities. Phi Psi had the first house on fraternity row which stood for over 80 years, after which the alumni funded a new house built from the ground up.  Completed in 2014, the new Phi Psi house is a $11 million state of the art, 10,000+ square foot LEED-certified house with amenities far beyond that on campus and is the largest fraternity house in Southern California.

Phi Psi alumni have made tremendous contributions to the school and are constant supporters of the chapter. UCLA Phi Psi also has the largest chapter specific endowment in the nation. Some of our esteemed alumni include visionaries such as:

  • Woodrow Wilson- 28th President of the United States

  • Michael Bloomberg- Former Mayor of NYC, 8th richest person in the US

  • Jerry Yang- Founder and Former CEO of Yahoo

  • Ed Pauley- Namesake and donor for UCLA's Pauley Pavilion Basketball Stadium

  • John Speraw- Current UCLA Men's Volleyball Head Coach

  • Mike Sealy- Current UCLA Women's Volleyball Head Coach

  • Jerry Nelson- Founder of Ticketmaster, the world's largest ticket commerce company

Today the brothers of Phi Kappa Psi continue to set the standard of what it means to be Bruin. Over the past couple years, our chapter has won  Pi Beta Phi’s Arrow Spike Philanthropy twice, Delta Gamma’s Anchor Splash Relay, Alpha Delta Pi's Lion's Cup and made the championship game of Kappa Alpha Theta’s Shootout Philanthropy. One of our brothers is also the reigning 2018 Alpha Phi Sorority Mr. Greek Sweetheart.

As one of the largest chapters on campus with well over 100 brothers, Phi Psi's are leaders in many student organizations including the Interfraternity Council, Bruin Woods, Camp Kesem, and Campus Tours just to name a few.  Currently we have numerous brothers on UCLA NCAA Sports Teams and we are heavily involved in Club Sports in addition to fielding some of the most successful Intramural Sports Teams of any fraternity on campus.   With a packed social calendar throughout the year, come see why becoming a brother of Phi Kappa Psi will make the most of your college experience.

Phi Psi brothers have set the highest standards at UCLA, and will continue to do so.
