On February 14, 1916, Phi Sigma Pi was founded at State Teachers College at Warrensburg, Missouri. The three founders, Dr. Eldo L. Hendricks, Dr. Claude A. Phillips, and Dr. Clarence H. McClure, decided that Phi Sigma Pi would stress not only scholarship, leadership, and fellowship, but also do so in a concept of a tripod dedicated equally to these three ideals. In 1966, Phi Sigma Pi became Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity, open to all academic majors. In 1977, the National Constitution was amended to admit eligible women, making Phi Sigma Pi a co-educational fraternity.
In the spring of 2010, Phi Sigma Pi joined the Greek system at Franklin and Marshall College, admitting enthusiastic students who want to be involved on campus. In the past semester, they've sponsored numerous scholarly events, such as the biweekly Knowledge Hours, where members learned about topics ranging from making Onigiri to promoting sustainability. They have supported Teach for America with a School Supply Drive, and once a month, the members enjoyed coffee and deserts at the Other Room Theater while getting to know one another. This chapter of Phi Sigma Pi encourages academic excellence and curiosity while strengthening the bonds of fellowship that tie members together
