Since our founding as the Beta chapter in 1911, the men of Phi Kappa Tau have thrived at Ohio University seeking to fulfill our lifelong commitment to brotherhood, learning, ethical leadership, and exemplary character. We attribute our over century-long success on campus to our involvement in the community, philanthropy, and our vision to be a leadership organization which binds men together. As men of Phi Kappa Tau, we enjoy the benefits of our tight brotherhood, cultural and moral excellence, and long established tradition here at Ohio as well as across the nation. As brothers we are continually looking to add new members to our brotherhood that share our enthusiasm for exceeding socially, academically, and as men in leadership roles in all aspects across campus.
