The Purdue Greek and Cooperative system consists of 6,141 members out of Purdue’s 32,671 undergraduate students (49,6369 enrollment including graduate students, fall 2021 statistics). There are 42 fraternities, 21 Panhellenic sororities, 10 Multicultural Greek organizations, 7 National Pan-Hellenic organizations at Purdue (spring 2021 statistics) and 11 cooperatives. You can find the Greek Semester Reports online individual organizations’ membership numbers, grades and philanthropy efforts (service hours and funds raised).
The Omega chapter of Pi Kappa Phi sees itself as one of the strongest and most selective organizations in the Greek community. Our goal is to ensure each member initiated into our brotherhood embodies all of the values of Pi Kappa Phi and becomes the man that you want him to become.
The Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house, 330 N. Grant St., is owned by an alumni, non-profit housing corporation. Officers include a corporate engineering professional, a political consultant, an accountant, a manager of student housing and media professional. The Omega of Pi Kappa Phi Inc. housing corporation works with officers in addressing maintenance, housing costs and related items. Collectively, the officers have more than 100 years experience with the corporation.
The chapter hosts parents for events each semester. In the fall, existing and new members’ fathers are invited to Dad’s Day held during the football season. This event is an informal way of engaging with the various dads while attending a football game and a charity poker tournament each fall. Each spring, we host a large Moms Day event. During a spring Saturday, moms (and their guests) experience the arrival of the Pi Kapp 100 team, socialize during a reception, participate in a charity auction and attend a banquet. Moms do not attend the fall Dads Day, but dads are welcome to accompany moms in the spring. Information about Dads and Moms Days are located elsewhere on this website.
The chapter is highly recognized for its accomplishments over the years as you can read under the “about us” tab on this website.
The fraternity’s reputation is based on the three basic characteristics – academics, leadership and service. We recruit members who have shown promise in those areas and who can help us build upon those areas. For example, we actively recruit high school valedictorians/salutatorians, national merit scholars, sports team captains, student class officers or those who have done church or school service projects.
We seek to continually build upon our accomplishments and build for the future.
