News, News, and More News – What’s Up Nationally

The newsfeed coming out of Chi Phi’s National Office is never-ending – here’s just a small portion of what’s going on with Chi Phi:

Since 2010, Chi Phi has pledged almost 1,700 New Members. This is the largest growth in Membership years.  And based on fall accreditation, 31 of our Chapters are larger than the average chapter size on their campus. Ten additional Chapters are within 10 men of exceeding the average chapter size. The average Chi Phi Chapter size for this past semester is 42 men.


In addition, based off the fall 2013 accreditation submission, the average Chapter GPA of Initiated Brothers is 2.95 and a 2.72 for New Members. Thirty-two Chapters have a combined GPA that is higher than the all-male average on their campus.

And if that weren’t enough, this past semester, Chi Phi Men donated 16,900 hours of service. That’s the equivalent of 704 days or 1.93 years! That brings the total for the past two semesters to 38,900 hours or 4.44 years. Phenomenal work by the men of Chi Phi!


Recently, a friend of Chi Phi has made a $100,000 investment in the men of the Eta Chapter through the Eta Chapter Excellence Fund. Click to learn more and how you can add your name to Chi Phi’s history books!

Finally, 2014 will definitely be a year of growth, as Chi Phi will be re-establishing Chapters at Nu (University of Texas at Austin), Iota Delta (Indiana University), Mu Delta (Auburn University), and Alpha Theta Chi (University of Nebraska).

Chi Phi is on the move – be a part of it in 2014!
