ABOUT US

Crest

The Tau Epsilon chapter of Psi Upsilon was officially founded in 2018. Our chapter values consist of friendship, respect, integrity, passion, and sincerity; each and every brother in the fraternity strives to maintain these values. Our chapter consists of a diverse group of 92 men from all over the United States, including South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Illinois, Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, New Jersey, New York, New Hampshire, Connecticut, California, and Texas, as well as a brother from Germany. The chapter house, nicknamed “The Cabin”, is located approximately a 10-minute drive from campus, across Lake Hartwell.

Psi Upsilon was founded on November 24, 1833 at Union College. It has grown to over 50 chapters nationally. 

Psi Upsilon’s mission statement is as follows:

“United in friendship, Psi Upsilon members aspire to moral, intellectual and social excellence in themselves as they seek to inspire these values in society.”

"Psi Upsilon means so much more than those letters. The men that came before and after me changed my life for the better and render me forever grateful for the organization. It's an honor and a privilege to call myself a brother to over 90 incredibly smart, talented, and passionate people. Wish I had rushed sooner!"
