The Founding of Psi Sigma Phi
Among the many important events that happened in the year of 1990, one of them stands out far above the rest for its purpose and ultimate achievement.
On December 12, 1990, eighteen men from diverse backgrounds and cultures reached their final stage in what turned out to be the creation and foundation of Psi Sigma Phi Multicultural Fraternity.
Before 1990, male college students were limited by the availability of fraternities throughout the State of New Jersey. At that time, African-American, Asian-American, Latin-American, and “Traditional”, fraternities were the predominant choice for males wishing to join a fraternity.
Our Founders felt the need to create an organization which not only offered a bond of unity and lasting friendship, but a fraternity which would emphasize the importance of multiculturalism in the lives of today’s college students.
Co-founded at Montclair State University and NJCU (formally Jersey City State College) as a service-oriented, social, multicultural organization, Psi Sigma Phi Multicultural Fraternity Inc. has managed to maintain its own identity among Greek-lettered organizations. By offering an eternal bond of unity and maintaining its multicultural awareness, Psi Sigma Phi has enjoyed the success that our Founders had envisioned.
