Ginther was nominated for the “All Mens Sports MVP,” and Felke was nominated for “Best Sports Moment” after defeating ranked rivals Wabash and Wittenberg. The chapter is thrilled to have these two in the house and on the court for the next two years!

Spring 2019 - A Recap

Phi Psi & Greek System at DPU Face Significant Challenges

By Matt Fox ‘91

Indiana Alpha continues to perform well on DePauw’s campus. The House is “full”, has no debt and maintains significant cash for capital projects. More importantly, we just recruited a strong pledge class in January. However, there are significant challenges on the horizon which require us to rethink the Phi Psi experience. The first challenge is the significant decline in the number of men going through rush. This is due to a significantly lower DPU enrollment. Several years ago we had a freshmen class of over 700 students. DePauw is now in the low 500’s. In the fall of 2019 it could possibly be in the high 400’s for both men and women. The percentage of men actually signing up for rush has also declined. The new Greek Community Board (GCB) formed by all the Greek Living units on campus is actively trying to address this issue by hiring a Public Relations firm to help market Greek Life to students. We realized we can’t rely on DePauw to market the Greek system. In the 80’s DePauw was 90% Greek it is now in the 64% and only 54% of Freshmen men went through rush. Finally, the decline in rush can be also be contributed to the poor academic performance of freshmen men. Over 20% of the freshmen men couldn’t go through rush due to having a GPA under 2.5.
