The Chi Phi Fraternity has been around for centuries, established in 1824 as the world's oldest national men's social fraternity. The Lambda Chapter was established in 1875 and is the second oldest fraternity at the University of California, Berkeley.
Our chapter has contributed heavily to the bright histories of the University of California and our great nation. The young men who stole the Stanford Axe were Chi Phi's and it was hidden in the chapter house for a long time. Douglas C North, who won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1993, was a Chi Phi at Berkeley, as was Hiram Johnson, who served as the 23rd Governor of California and Theodore Roosevelt's running mate on the Bull Moose ticket.
Our fraternity has the highest GPA of all fraternities on the UC Berkeley campus and the highest average GPA of any Chi Phi chapter in the country. We have majors ranging from Math, Engineering, Computer Science, Business, Economics, Environmental Science, Literature, and Political Science. Lambda alumni can be found in Fortune 500 companies, top Wall Street investment banks, executive positions at organizations such as Facebook, and at startups all around Silicon Valley.
Chi Phi was founded on the principles of truth, honor, and personal integrity and these values have carried our members on to do great things.
