Headquartered in Indianapolis, Phi Kappa Psi was founded in 1852 when William Henry Letterman and Charles Page Thomas Moore were students at Jefferson College in the foothills of Western Pennsylvania. The two were nursing and watching over their stricken friends during an epidemic of typhoid fever at the college. Through the long night vigils, the two established a group that was founded upon the great joy they received from selflessly helping others. Today, Phi Kappa Psi is a national fraternity of more than 80,000 living brothers who promote integrity by further developing their intellect and serving as strong community stewards. With a legacy built on acceptance and trust, each brother realizes his highest potential.
