Alpha Chi Rho is a national fraternity that was founded in 1895. The Phi Zeta Chi chapter of Alpha Chi Rho formed in SUNY Geneseo in 1980. The basic principles of this fraternity are found within the Landmarks that culminate the traditions of Alpha Chi Rho and represent what our brothers and founders believe is the ideal brotherhood.
- Membership from among those who are prepared to realize in word and deed, the Brotherhood of all men.
- The insistence on a high and clean moral standard.
- The paramount duty of Brotherly love among members.
- Judgment not by externals, but by intrinsic worth: no one is denied membership into Alpha Chi Rho because of race, creed, or nationality.
