Vernon Social Center
Alpha Chi Rho Plaque
Backstory and Context
Vernon Social was renovated to its current state in 2017, but historically the space has looked very different. In the space where Vernon Social currently stands was the chapter house of the Phi Psi chapter of Alpha Chi Rho, more commonly know on campus as Crow. By the building's entrance is a plaque commemorating the former fraternity house. The plaque reads, "Here stood, from 1940-1955, the fraternity house of the Phi Psi chapter of Alpha Chi Rho, a brotherhood of athletes and scholars, all of whom were men who loved Trinity." The fraternity is now located nearby at 106 Allen Place.
