It is the second oldest Greek-lettered collegiate society in North America as well as a part of the oldest collegiate rivalry in the United States - [the Demosthenian Literary Society vs. the Phi Kappa Literary Society]. Since its beginning, Phi Kappa has served as a training forum for many public leaders and first families of Georgia and throughout the South for public speaking." -- from http://www.phikappa.org/history
