Initial Supporters Contribute $6.8 Million toward $8 Million Fundraising Goal
Since its founding in 1904, the Texas Alpha Chapter of Phi Kappa Psi has positively shaped the lives of thousands of young men at the University of Texas.
For the past three years, a group of alumni has been working diligently to develop a comprehensive plan for a future chapter house. Providing the active Phi Psi members with a home that is modern and safe is imperative, and will position the chapter as a leader amongst other fraternities at U.T. Creating spaces that provide a living learning community will help hundreds of undergraduates become better students, brothers, and men. The design also takes into account that the chapter house is the gathering point during the football season, and creates spaces and facilities to accommodate alumni, active members, parents and friends at such events.
Texas Alpha to the Top is a campaign set to define the next 100 years for Texas Alpha, and the goal is to raise $8 million. Texas Alpha recently secured the land and townhomes at 2501 Nueces Street (only one block from Guadalupe and 24th). With alumni support, the currently occupied Honors Townhomes will be renovated and a 26,600-square-foot Main Chapter House West Building will be constructed. This construction project is ambitious, including a subterranean parking garage, a state-of-the-art kitchen and dining room, a welcoming room for speakers and guests, an ample courtyard, a sports court and much more. The new facility is designed to be the flagship of fraternity houses on the U.T. campus. With already more than $6.8 million in commitments from dedicated alumni, construction on the project recently began.
