On March 9, 1916, , the Alpha chapter at Miami University adopted “Phi Kappa Tau” to become a Greek letter organization.
The Beta Kappa chapter was chartered at Oklahoma State Greek Community on May 16, 1949.
There are more than 81 active chapters and 10 colonies throughout country.
The mission of Phi Kappa Tau is to champion a lifelong commitment to brotherhood, learning, ethical leadership and exemplary character.
Phi Kappa Tau, by admitting me to membership, has conferred upon me a mark of distinction in which I take just pride. I believe in the spirit of brotherhood for which it stands. I shall strive to attain its ideals, and by so doing to bring to it honor and credit. I shall be loyal to my college and my chapter and shall keep strong my ties to them that I may ever retain the spirit of youth. I shall be a good and loyal citizen. I shall try always to discharge the obligation to others which arises from the fact that I am a fraternity man.
