About Psi Upsilon

Psi Upsilon was founded in 1833 at Union College. Our fraternity is a select group sharing similar ideals, hopes, and purposes, bonded together by deep friendship and mutual understanding. Such a bond helps enable an RPI student to become a poised and self-confident adult equipped with a keener mind, a greater appreciation, and broader sympathies.
