AVALANCHE TEXAS ALPHA LAUNCHES 20/20 VISION Same Values, New Era If you have been to the new chapter facility at 2501 Nueces Street you will notice there are some changes since the days of 2401 and 2411 Longview. Phi Kappa Psi Texas Alpha has undergone a tremendous overhaul in terms of culture, behavior, recruitment tactics and overall presentation. From walking through the doors of our beautiful new facility to meeting any of the 130 current undergraduate men, it is evident that Texas Alpha is back. Programming, educational initiatives and risk management policy implementation are on the forefront of the work being done at Texas Alpha. We are intentional in our efforts so every undergraduate member experiences a healthy, safe and secure environment and benefits from a collegiate experience allowing growth and development both personally and professionally. Clear Vision Creates Success With the help and guidance of many alumni, Texas Alpha now has a clear vision and is providing an expanded value add experience that many thought was not possible. We surveyed and listened to all of our alumni as to who we need to be and what we need to represent. We have onsite counseling to educate and enforce our creed, values and rich history. We developed and reintroduced the importance of academics and a culture and system that is supportive of several key objectives and qualities. The results have been remarkable and go beyond the intended subjects. Not only did we move from 17th in GPA to 4th (3.3 GPA), we have meaningful and disciplined chapter meetings that would make any parent or alumni business owner proud. TAEF Announces Annual Campaign We are excited to launch the 20/20 Vision, an annual campaign driven by the dedicated efforts of the Texas Alpha Endowment Fund (a 501(c)(3) non- profit charitable organization. The purpose of the campaign is to enhance the undergraduate higher education experience; not underwriting it, but building them as individuals overall. The University of Texas at Austin is a prestigious institution with rigorous admittance criteria. Every student that gains admission is highly qualified and academically intelligent. In order to enable/provide a competitive advantage, it's critical to augment this experience. Texas Alpha aims to provide a personalized plan for each student, impactful campus experiences, and a dedicated, full-time executive director who will guide students through their undergraduate experience and prepare them for life after graduation. Phi Kappa Psi will help create well-rounded young men. Visit for more information about our vision for Texas Alpha's future.
