In 1988, our esteemed alumnus and actor Paul Newman, Ohio ‘43, founded Hole in the Wall Gang Camp on a 300-acre piece of land in Connecticut. Now an international organization known as SeriousFun Children’s Network, this camp was designed as a place where children with terminal or life-threatening illnesses could escape their medical conditions for a little while to just be kids and, in Paul’s own words, “to raise a little hell.” Today, SeriousFun camps have served over 1,000,000 children in 20 different countries - all free of charge. Phi Kappa Tau has been formally partnered with SeriousFun for over 25 years. In that lifetime, we’ve raised $1.6 million dollars.
Phi Kappa Tau (Zeta Alpha) was founded at Belmont University in 2004. Since the colonization of our chapter, we have strived to maintain a high standard among our members both personally and professionally. We challenge our brothers to always be "men of character," and we will continue to support our campus and community through our mission and values.
