The Ntense Nu Chapter of Alpha Psi Lambda National, Inc. at UT strives for their members' hard work, dedication and enthusiasm. They hope to bring a new flavor to the student body and show the definition of working hand-in-hand with men and women professionally and socially. They also want to introduce their noble organization to UT’s campus and community through community service work. Alpha Psi Lambda has welcomed people from a broad spectrum of cultures including Latin America, Caribbean, European, Asian and American. Alpha Psi Lambda — to its members — is more than just a fraternity; it creates that true family support, brotherhood and sisterhood, at a time in a student’s life when it is most important. This trend has also brought with it a need for cultural awareness, cultural identity and cross-cultural understanding.

The UT Gamma chapter is the youngest of Nu Phi Psi Fraternity, Inc. Nu Phi Psi's members and candidates for membership are socially positive men from all walks of life: from college students and graduates, to blue-collar workers and technical professionals. It is their vision to select goal-orientated men to help carry out the purpose of outreach and service, while inspiring them to reach their individual aspirations. The fraternity selects young men with the ambition and drive to lead. Nu Phi Psi is a historically African American collegiate fraternity. To better serve the locals and cities, most of the chapters are citywide, meaning they pool membership, events, activities and service programming from every college and university within a designated area (usually within the city limits). Nu Phi Psi is in constant pursuit of excellence in academics and outreach to its surrounding community.
