About Pi UpUpcoming Events


The Education program developed from the Fraternity’s traditional emphasis on education academic achievement as an ingredient for success. During the 1945 Conclave in St. Louis, Missouri, the Fraternity engaged in a restructuring of its programming, leading to the birth of Education as an International program…

Bigger & Better Business

Bigger and Better Business became the first national program of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. It was first introduced at the Tenth Anniversary Conclave, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (December 1924). When Bigger and Better Business was adopted as a national program, special emphasis was placed on encouraging and promoting Negro businesses. At its inception, the program sought to encourage Negro businesses to improve their business acumen, efficiency and service to the public, to be competitive with other businesses.

Social Action

Formed in 1934, the Social Action program was conceived by Bro. Elmo M. Anderson to focus on improving the general well-being of disenfranchised people. The mission of the International Social Action Program is to encourage social, political and philanthropic leadership which strengthens our respective communities and our membership.

Sigma Beta Club

Sigma Beta Clubs all across the country have mentored thousands of young men since 1950. Participants learn the importance of servicing others and establish lifelong friendships, as well as the enhancement of meaningful educational and professional opportunities.

Letter From Chapter President - Gary Bryant, Jr.

Intrigued, I see. Well, we are glad something has sparked your interest to know more about Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity’s, Pi Upsilon Sigma chapter. As you browse the pages of this website we hope the intrigue continues.

Since the chapter’s chartering in 2015, Pi Up has continued to live the principle of the fraternity’s motto, “Culture for Service. Service for Humanity”. It is exemplified in the involvement with our three adopted schools (Hemphill Elementary, Maddox Intermediate and Phillips Academy), the support of the local March of Dimes and Sickle Cell Foundation, as well as working alongside our sisters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc and other Black Greek Letter Organizations.

As a servant leader myself, I see it as a blessing and privilege to lead this chapter as president. I understand that a leader is only as strong as the followers and the followers are only as strong as their leader. In other words, we are strongest when we work together. This is how we will continue to bring a positive impact to the communities “we live, work and play in”.

So welcome to our humble abode. If Pi Upsilon Sigma can be of service to you, don’t be afraid to leave us a message. We just may be in a neighborhood near you.
With much gratitude and respect,

President, Gary Bryant, Jr
