About  Us

Phi Kappa Tau
Beta Xi Chapter
University of Georgia

Our history 

Phi Kappa Tau was nationally founded in 1906 at Miami University in Ohio. We remember our roots to this day and continue to strive to be different from other Greek organizations by staying true to our initial beliefs: the innate worth of members, democracy, and Christian ideals.

In March of 1949, a group of University of Georgia students comprised of World War II veterans returning to college formed the Beta Xi Colony of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity where it would thrive for 65 years.

On October 22, 2011 Beta Xi re-charted and in just over three years, our brotherhood had grown to over 100 men by searching for leaders who desire a fraternity experience different than other UGA chapter. One that provides a loyal brotherhood, an effective medium to improve their campus and community, and a means to progress into adulthood. In 2013 we unveiled our newest fraternity house at 558 West Broad Street, at the gateway to downtown Athens. 

Phi Kappa Tau has consistently ranked highly compared to other Phi Tau chapters nationally, as well as others in UGA’s Greek Community. Our organization has received top marks for academics, campus involvement, and membership size. Our goal is balanced improvement with a focus on recruitment. By growing our chapter with dedicated and enthusiastic young men, we will continue to thrive as a chapter.
