We are proud to announce that a group of students at Columbia University have formed with the intent of restarting the Lambda Chapter of Psi Upsilon as a recognized fraternity on campus. The Executive Council has accepted this group of students as the Lambda Owl Club and we’ll be holding the Founder’s Pledge Ceremony to introduce these students to Psi Upsilon at the Delta Yule Log dinner on Monday, December 4th. This event is open to all members of Psi Upsilon – for more information and to RSVP for this event please go here. Owl Club is the term used to identify a group of uninitiated students who are looking to restart a dormant chapter of Psi Upsilon.
After the Lambda chapter went inactive due to low membership in 2014 an opportunity to return to campus didn’t present itself until recently and we’re excited by this opportunity and have seen good activity and growth in the short amount of time since this interest group formed. While we don’t have recognition from Columbia at this time, we are hoping that occurs soon once the group grows to a larger size.
We are looking for alums, from all chapters, to help support the Owl Club. If you have any interest in being more involved please take a moment to fill out this form. We’ll be hosting a Zoom meeting the last week of November to discuss roles and ways alums can help support the students as they seek to restart the Lambda Chapter and bring Psi Upsilon back to Columbia’s campus.
Also, if you know of any Columbia students who would be good candidates to join Psi Upsilon please pass along their information to us by filling out this form.
