Moving Day for Nu Rho Psi

The National Office of Nu Rho Psi is in the process of moving from Baldwin Wallace University in Berea, Ohio to Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland.

During the move, delays processing chapter member inductions and orders from our store are likely.

Please work with us in the meantime. We are working as expeditiously as we can to complete the transition and serve our members.

Should you be planning inductions in the fall 2021, it may be best to delay them until 2022.
We anticipate that the transition of the national office will be completed soon. Advisors should contact their regional Vice-President if they have questions.

We will assist those chapter who have scheduled inductions for fall 2021 to the extent that we can. All others should plan to hold inductions of new members in 2022.
