My name is Ryan Beard, and I am the current President of Phi Kappa Tau, Gamma chapter at The Ohio State University. I would like to welcome you to our website and I hope you’re able to find everything you’re looking for.

The Gamma chapter of Phi Kappa Tau re-chartered in 2012 and has been growing ever since. We are comprised of hard working and determined men, all geared towards working to improve themselves, their peers, and the surrounding community. We are all focused and place great importance on service, philanthropy, academics, and brotherhood. In 2018, Phi Kappa Tau experienced great success. This past March, we were awarded Ohio State IFC 2018 Chapter of the Year at the Greek Awards Ceremony, and this past summer we were recognized as a Founders Four chapter at our National Convention, annually given to the top four Phi Kappa Tau chapters in the country. Along with that, we’ve contributed a record $11,500 to our philanthropy, SeriousFun Children’s Network. We are also partnered with Boys and Girls Club of Columbus to have brothers serve as male role models to the children of the Columbus area.

Phi Kappa Tau is an organization committed to developing men of character into men of distinction. We pride ourselves in being involved on campus and expect members to get involved to gain greater connections and make our community a better place. We have members heavily involved in IFC, Buckeyethon, USG, among other organizations.

Whether you’re a perspective new member, parent, or just trying to gain and greater understanding of our organization, I hope our website gives you the insight you are looking for. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or any of my Executive Board members. Our information is listed under the Contact tab.
