Phi Kappa Tau was founded in 1906 at Miami University by a group of men who believed that greatness wasn’t exclusively bestowed upon the fraternities already established. In this spirit of collective potential, they formed what would later become known as Phi Kappa Tau. Emerging into its second century of existence, Phi Kappa Tau, also referred to as “Phi Tau,” has chartered more than 140 chapters in almost every state of the union, and has initiated more than 90,000 members. The Beta Xi chapter has been recognized throughout the years as being one of the most distinguished among them all.
Our chapter at the University of Georgia has historically been around since 1949. After a brief re-organization in 2010, we officially rechartered on Oct. 22, 2011 (article). Currently, we have 100 undergraduate brothers and are preparing for a big fall rush. If you're interested in checking us out please reach out to our recruitment chairman. Our men participate in a variety of clubs and activities, including the Georgia Club Baseball Team, Georgia Club Tennis, Terry Student Consulting, Student Managed Investment Fund, Institute for Leadership Advancement, Student Alumni Council, Arch Society, Atlas Society, Student Government Association, Collegiate 4-H, Interfraternity Council, Corsair Society, and University Judiciary. Also as a fraternity, we rank among the top ten fraternities for G.P.A. and have been recognized in high regard in the fraternity intramural leagues for frisbee, soccer, and basketball.
During the semester our executive board plans an energized semester filled with: socials, date nights, community service, rush, and philanthropic events. Whether its planning epic formals in Charleston, SC or getting together for an intramural frisbee team, you can bet that our bonds of brotherhood remain as the main element.
