Every year since 1921, the Chi Psi National Fraternity has awarded the Thayer Trophy to the most outstanding chapter of Chi Psi.
The Chi Psi Fraternity chapter at the University of Washington was founded in 1921 and from the very beginning we established a tradition of excellence by winning the Thayer Trophy in 1924. Since 1986, we have been finalists for the Thayer Trophy every year and have won it 11 times.
The first pillar of brotherhood at Chi Psi is respect for each other – you cannot have brotherhood without respect. All individuals in Chi Psi – actives and pledges – are treated equally. Interaction between every member, senior to freshman, is respectful, sincere, and honest with one another.
