Phi Sigma Pi National History Phi Sigma Pi was founded at State Teacher’s College at Warrensburg, Missouri (currently named University of Central Missouri), on February 14 th , 1916. The founding Brothers, C.H. McClure, Eldo L. Hendricks, and Claude A. Phillips, built the fraternity on three ideals: Scholarship, Leadership, and Fellowship. These three ideal were to be thought of as a tripod, each carrying the same strength and importance. Phi Sigma Pi did not become a “national” fraternity until 1921. In 1966, Phi Sigma Pi officially became Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity. It started as a men’s only program, but with the passage of Title IX, women were legally required to be allowed membership. Within the fraternity, an amendment to the National Constitution had to be made by the Grand Chapter to allow this coeducational membership. A national publication for Phi Sigma Pi began in the early 1900s. It was, and still is, referred to as The Lampadion , which means “little torch”. In 1940, the Purple & Gold newsletter was published by Phi Sigma Pi. Its purpose was to keep contact strong between the collegiate chapters and the National Headquarters.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
