For over 100 years, Phi Kappa Sigma, also known as the Skull House, has been an active member of the Georgia Tech community. The name Skull House is derived from our initial founding father, Dr. Samuel Wylie Brown Mitchell, who served as a physician for the Union Army in the Civil War. The symbol of physicians was the skull and cross bones, and we uphold that honorable distinction in our traditions. During our years on the Tech campus, we have developed a strong and diverse brotherhood. We have a great deal of social activities during the year, such as our semi-formal during the spring, Brother Retreats, and the Black and Gold Formal each fall. In addition, every spring semester we host Oozeball, where we dig a mud volleyball pit in our yard and host an all-day tournament. It is also our annual fundraising event and all proceeds go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of America. The chapter is also active in many campus activities, playing intramural sports such as flag football, softball, and basketball, and participating in the annual Greek Week and Homecoming events. At Phi Kappa Sigma we teach our members to become “Men of Honor.” With our smaller size we are able to get to know one another as a Brother and are able to build our members into better men and better students. We encourage our members to enjoy the college experience, but it is the Brotherhood that we have built together that separates Phi Kappa Sigma from other organizations on campus. We hope to see you this fall during Rush, and wish you the best of luck at Georgia Tech. If you have any questions about Phi Kappa Sigma, please email our Rush Chair.
