Letter From the President:
My name is Jim Tronolone, president of the Lambda Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa here at The George Washington University, and I would like to personally welcome you to our official chapter website!
Since our chapter’s founding in 1899, the brothers of Phi Sigma Kappa have made it our mission to live out the core values that have defined our fraternity: to demand excellence, to commit to lifelong learning, to meet challenges with innovation, and to value brotherhood above self. As you explore this website, you will see that our chapter is more than just a fraternity; we are a family.
I rushed in the Spring of 2015, back before GW adopted its deferred recruitment policy. As I went house to house, I felt that the only place that stood out to me was PSK. As a potential new member, I was able to see how important the brotherhood was, and how motivated each member was to leave their own, unique mark on the house and on GW.
For those of you thinking about joining our brotherhood, here are a few facts:
- Our townhouse on the corner of 21st and F is owned by our alumni, with total upkeep resting on the shoulders of its members. Our property is one of the only off-campus Greek houses, despite being in the middle of campus
- Despite having a smaller brotherhood, we have one of the largest houses on campus, with the ability to have nine members live in nine single rooms.
- Each year around Halloween, the brothers transform our townhouse into a haunted house in order to raise money for our national charity, The Special Olympics. In 2016, we raised over $900 for the organization.
- Notable chapter alumni include Eric Cantor, former House Majority Leader, and TJ Miller, star of HBO’s Silicon Valley. TJ is frequently seen at the townhouse hanging out with brothers.
We are constantly on the rise. We always look for ways to improve and are looking forward to growing and prospering in 2017. We always keep our eyes out for potential new members who are interested in leaving a big mark at our big school. I welcome you to the rest of this site, and thank you for your interest in our chapter. If you would like to contact the chapter with any questions, concerns, or improvements, please reach out to email@example.com.
