American Leadership Academy in Cabo San Lucas


Every Spring break, undergraduate brothers have the ability to attend the American Leadership Academy in Cabo, San Lucas. These brothers spend a week on the beach in Phi Psi alumnus and Ticketmaster founder Jerry Nelson’s hotel. The week long program consists of classroom presentations and outside break-out sessions designed to aide Phi Psi’s with confidence, knowledge, and improved attitudes. Previous guest speakers include entrepreneur and philanthropist Scott Noble, professional negotiator Paul Wineman, Rose Bowl winning player and coach Rick Neuheisel, and etiquette expert Mom Nonnie.

After the daily morning sessions, the attendees are free to explore downtown Cabo in a safe environment, experience the Mexican nightlife, and practice the negotiation and etiquette skills learned during the program. This life changing event is subsidized by the Phi Kappa Psi National Foundation, and participants are required to pay for their individual airfare as well as a minimal registration fee for the week.
