Alabama Alpha Chapter History

The Alabama Alpha Chapter of Phi Kappa Psi was founded in 1964. Dr. John Frasier Ramsey, an esteemed History professor at the University of Alabama for many years, founded this Chapter with high expectations and lofty goals. Dr. Ramsey's belief in the Brotherhood of Phi Kappa Psi remains in the hearts of all our members throughout their lives.

As a somewhat young Chapter, we are always looking for men who are ready to "jump in with both feet" and prepare to become future Chapter leaders.

In our 41-plus years at the University of Alabama we have initiated over 500 members. Alabama Alpha alumni are located across the United States and abroad
