Phi Kappa Psi - Iowa Beta

316 Lynn Ave.
Ames, IA 50014

The Iowa Beta Chapter of Phi Kappa Psi chartered in 1913. Nine years later, in 1922, the chapter house was built. It remains today in its original location, but the interior was completely remodeled in 2008, and is now in top condition. Throughout the decades, Phi Kappa Psi had a strong presence on the Iowa State campus. However, in 1999, our strength waned, and our charter was revoked. For a period of time, Phi Psi did not exist at Iowa State, but after six years, it was time to come back. After much hard work, we recolonized our chapter, and on October 27, 2007 we gained our national charter once again. Since then, we have striven to make a lasting impression at Iowa State, heavily involving ourselves within the Greek Community. We have claimed the titles of Homecoming Champions of 2019 and Greek Week Champion of 2018, Phi Kappa Psi Grand Chapter 2018 and 2019, and are involved in Homecoming and other campus events. In the coming years, we will continue to strengthen our presence and build upon the legacy that our founders set forth.
