Our Story

 

The UBC Chapter of Psi Upsilon began in 1928 as a local fraternity called the Alpha Kappa Alpha Society. Its aims were the development of leadership, academic and athletic abilities. In the 30's it was decided that affiliation with an international fraternity was to be the next step in AKA’s development. Psi Upsilon was chosen because of its similar ideals and outstanding reputation among North American fraternities. In 1935, after 4 years of petitioning, AKA was accepted and given a charter. It was installed on October 19th of that year at the Hotel Vancouver, and named as the Zeta Zeta chapter of Psi Upsilon. Since that date, Zeta Zeta has maintained proud standing within UBC’s greek community. Some of the most prominent men in Vancouver were undergraduate members of Psi U here at UBC.

Academics


Academics


Our academics have been a priority from the very beginning. Since 1935, seven Rhode Scholars have emerged through our chapter, and we hold ourselves to the highest academic standards as we support each brother in his path to scholastic excellence.

At Psi Upsilon, we uphold the highest standards of academic achievement. Our Scholastic Officer is responsible for providing a number of academic support services, including organizing bi-weekly study hall periods and academic tutoring. Senior members are always willing to assist their juniors to reach their scholastic goals. Brothers of Psi Upsilon also enjoy eligibility for exclusive scholarships available to diligent members of our chapter.

"Our fraternity is a select group sharing similar ideals, hopes, and purposes, bonded together by deep friendship and mutual understanding. Such a bond provides the foundation which enables the college student to become a poised and self-confident adult equipped with a keener mind, a greater appreciation, and broader sympathies.

This bond is further fortified by a group of true and understanding friends who will stand by him throughout life. The outward manifestation of the philosophical underpinnings of Psi Upsilon are the ways in which we treat ourselves, each other, and those around us."
