A group of Southern Gentlemen perpetuating the excellence of Phi Kappa Tau
Building Men of Character
We look for the best and brightest young men to join in our brotherhood and as an organization we champion the ideals of honor, integrity, and commitment. We are always looking for men who exhibit these ideals in their pursuit of excellence in Leadership, Education, and Community Service.
We offer numerous opportunities for our men to develop their leadership abilities. Our Executive Committee offers great opportunities, as well as our many committees that can fit any interest. In addition we participate in a leadership academy sponsored by nationals.
Leadership Academy is the Fraternity’s premier, individualized leadership-development program for rising Phi Kappa Tau leaders. The four-day program is offered in three sessions of 40-60 students at camps across the country. Participants will create connections with rising Phi Kappa Tau leaders while identifying their own leadership style and learning how to effectively use their core values as leaders.
If you strive to be a leader in your chapter, on campus and in your community then Leadership Academy is for you.
Take a Look At How We Have Fun
Football Tailgates: The University of Georgia host 7-8 home football games per year. The Fraternity hosts a tailgate before each game offering its guest food and light refreshments. Parents and Alumni are more than welcome to come and highly encouraged to attend.
Parents Weekends: Each Fall and Spring Semester the Fraternity hosts a Parents Weekend inviting all parents to spend a nice weekend with us in Athens. The Fall Parents Weekend is a low key event hosted during one of the tailgates during football season. The Spring Parents weekend is a more formal event hosted in a ballroom at a local Athens venues. These events present an opportunity for parents to get to meet the Brotherhood and get to know the people their sons are hanging out with.
Red Carnation Formal: The Red Carnation Formal is a weekend where the Brothers travel to local city, usually in the Southeast in the Spring Semester. Throughout the weekend the brothers are able to explore the city and depending on the location they can go to the beach or take a hike in the mountains. The formal event is held on Saturday evening in the ballroom of the hotel the Brotherhood is staying at.
Socials: Socials are a great way for Brothers to meet new people and make new friends. The Fraternity pairs with a Sorority on campus and host a themed mixer at the Fraternity house, for the two organizations to enjoy a fun evening together.
Date Nights: Each semester the Fraternity host multiple Date Nights. Date Nights are a night where each brother invites a girl to be their date for the evening. Each Date Night has a theme like Kentucky Derby or Mardi Gras.
