The Chi Phi Fraternity is an American College Social Fraternity that was established as the result of the merger of three separate organizations that were each known as Chi Phi. The oldest active organization that took part in the union was originally founded in 1824 at Princeton. Today, Chi Phi has over 43,500 living alumni members from over 100 active and inactive Chapters. On Christmas Eve in 1824, an association was formed to promote the circulation of correct opinions upon Religion, Morals, Education & excluding Sectarian Theology and party Politics. It was the duty of each member to publish at least once a month in any convenient way some article designed to answer the above object. When at length it disbanded, its religious feature was absorbed and perpetuated by what is known now as the Philadelphian Society organized in February, 1825, and said to be an offspring of the Nassau Hall Tract Society.
