CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR
NEW SPRING 2020 CLASS
WHAT WE DO
Phi Chi Theta strives to increase interest and dedication to professionalism while also increasing interest in the business world. By practicing professionalism both within and outside of the working environment, our brothers become leaders in the professional world.
Being in our family makes a large university feel small. Phi Chi Theta is made up of loyal friendships built upon the foundation of a close-knit brotherhood. Whether it is studying, intramural sports, or having chapter wide competitions, we always thrive together.
Phi Chi Theta believes service is an integral part of growing one’s character and building a stronger community. Rebuilding local homes, assisting with food pantries, and promoting literacy at various institutions are only a few of the charitable acts the organization takes part in. Phi Chi Theta is passionate about continuously giving back to the community and strives to improve the lives of people around us.

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
As a premier professional organization at the University of Illinois, Phi Chi Theta Zeta Gamma chapter is an incredible community of driven students that are looking to make a tangible impact in their prospective fields. Though we are a business fraternity, our members span a wide variety of majors across the university and are united by our passion for business and innovation. Our organization is built around the goal of supporting the diverse interests of our
members. We provide the resources for them to grow in the three main areas represented by our pillars - professionalism, service and brotherhood.
Since joining the first semester of my freshman year, I have been astounded by the ambition of our brothers. We work all over the world for companies in nearly every industry – from The Walt Disney Company to Google. No matter where your college career takes you, there is a member or alumni from PCT who knows how you can take the steps to reach your professional goals.
In terms of service, we focus on giving back to the Champaign-Urbana community with weekly events for a variety of initiatives. Additionally, we hold an annual event that raises thousands of dollars for a charity of our member’s choosing. As a part of Phi Chi Theta, our service pillar gives our brothers a platform to get involved with and give back to the causes that mean the most to us.
Brotherhood is seen in everything we do. From taking classes together to traveling the world side-by-side, our members find friends for life in PCT. The people you meet in this organization will inspire you to try new things and push you to challenge yourself well beyond the four years that we spend on campus.
Joining PCT has allowed me to have a profoundly fulfilling college experience and has given me an incredible group of people to share it with. I encourage you to look around our website and attend our recruitment events for this semester. We would love to meet you and help you discover all that Phi Chi Theta can offer you.
