Two fraternities to return to UK campus

LEXINGTON, Ky. (UK Public Affairs)  The University of Kentucky is set to welcome back two Interfraternity Council (IFC) chapters to campus.

Zeta Beta Tau, of which UK President Eli Capilouto is an alumnus, will come to campus in Fall 2021. The Alpha Iota chapter was previously on campus from 1942-1973.

The Kentucky Beta chapter of Phi Kappa Psi will mark its return to campus in Fall 2022. The chapter was formerly active from 1988-2016.

“The Interfraternity Council is excited to welcome new chapters to our campus that will better our sense of community,” said Parker Tussey, incoming IFC president and former vice president of recruitment. “Zeta Beta Tau and Phi Kappa Psi are organizations that have put forth impressive plans to easily integrate into our existing strategic goals for the coming years. Welcoming new opportunities and chapters that bring unique experiences is the goal of IFC expansion and we are accomplishing that with these groups.”

Zeta Beta Tau and Phi Kappa Psi will join UK IFC’s current roster of 22 chapters.

The mission of the Interfraternity Council is to unite in the pursuit of scholarship, community service, character and the continued growth of the Greek system. The IFC of the University of Kentucky was established in order to advocate for the interests of its member fraternities, aid in the development of their members, and improve the community through collective effort.
