Phi Challenge

To Understand the Benefits of Fraternalism
12 Weeks - 1 Year

The Phi Challenge seeks to develop balanced leaders that are active and productive within the Fraternity. Utilizing knowledge and skills gained from the Sigma Challenge, Phi focuses on group and individual leadership skills. Through hands on experience, members of the Phi Challenge are truly exposed to the values of Sound Mind & Sound Body, and seek to become better gentlemen, leaders, scholars, and athletes. Additionally, members of the Phi challenge learn the deepest meanings of our Fraternity's cardinal principles: Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. At the conclusion of the Phi Challenge, members will have gained personal, social, and spiritual knowledge about the Fraternity, its members, and themselves.

The Phi Challenge, like the Sigma Challenge, involves written goals and community service, but adds much more.
