Phi Eta Psi Fraternity, Inc. believes that Brotherhood is the cornerstone of our Fraternity’s eternal bond. The Imperial Brotherhood of Phi Eta Psi Fraternity, Inc. is anchored firmly in the belief that “we are our brother’s keeper.” The foundation of our Fraternal Brotherhood is based on mutual love and respect for one another. This love and respect for our individual members and the Fraternity are the inspiration for the often quoted exclamation, “Phi Psi until the day I die!”

Advanced tickets are $15 each. At this event we will recognize Eddie Roe, the first National Officer to pass away while still in office. We will also honor Bro. Grant Thomas and Bro. Leonard Minifee who have also gone on to the ETA chapter. Further, we will visit the brick from our recently purchased “Buy-a-Brick” campaign, which has been forever embedded at our founding place, Mott Community College. Also, The Metro West Alumni chapter will be recognized for three years of existence. Lastly, the Fraternity business portion of this retreat will focus on setting direction for the Expansion Committee. This committee was established at the 2015 Fraternity Convention. The work of the Expansion Committee is critical relative to the longevity of Phi Eta Psi as a fraternity. Because of the short notice of this event brothers are encouraged to support this event and spread the word.
Western Michigan University at Eastern Michigan University homecoming will be on Saturday, October 21, 2017. Game Time at EMU – TBA. This is a tailgate event. Last year it was really rocking and we need to see many more IMPs in attendance.
