Pi Kappa Phi recognizes that in order to be a leading fraternity on campus we must have a tight nit brotherhood. We nurture the growth of friendships between members by having many brotherhood activities that only members are permitted to attend. These activities can range from a BBQ to a game of soccer or even a fraternal ritual.
Scholarship is a top priority for every member in Pi Kappa Phi, and it shows. Pi Kappa Phi was the number 4 fraternity in grades, ranking above the all men average on campus. Our scholarship chairman supports academics by creating a detailed list of the classes that members are taking and identifying members with similar classes, and by identifying more senior members who would be effective mentors.
Philanthropic/Community Service Projects:
Pi Kappa Phi and our philanthropy Push America are intertwined in such a way that makes it so easy to not only give back to the community, but to grow yourself as well. We are the only fraternity in the country to own and operate our own non-profit organization, Push America. This allows for a much higher level of collaboration than any other greek organization is capable of having with their philanthropy. Push America’s mission statement is: “Building leaders of tomorrow by serving people with disabilities today.” There are many national Push America events that are open to members of Pi Kappa Phi that can be found at pushamerica.org. On the Palouse we are partnering with Families Together to serve people with disabilities locally. Additionally we participate in many of the fundraisers that other Greek organizations put on as well as University sponsored service projects.
Pi Kappa Phi is a very social group, we realize that college is a time for personal and academic growth, and we provide a great atmosphere to achieve that growth. We participate in as many greek and campus events as possible. Here are a few of the things we do:
• Serenade Sororities on their founders day
• Fall Cruise
• Greek Week
• Rose Ball
• Intramural Sports
We encourage our members to be involved in campus outside of Pi Kappa Phi as well. Some of the things our members are involved in are:
• Vandal REPS
• Idea Club
• Digital Media Club
• Bass Fishing Club
• Resident Assistant
• and many more
