Rankings from the Fall 2017 show that the Purdue chapter of Pi Kappa Phi is perhaps the most achieved fraternity at Purdue.
Consider the following:
- No. 2 in grades among 40 fraternities with a semester average GPA of 3.27 from 145 men. It was second to a chapter that had 26 members (Phi Kappa Theta) when Pi Kappa Phi had 145.
- No. 1 in philanthropy dollars with $112,354 raised since the spring report. The fund-raising includes money raised by chapter members participating in the 2017 Journey of Hope, PUDM (Purdue University Dance Marathon) to go with what chapter members raised for The Ability Experience. Pi Kappa Phi was No. 1 by a factor of nearly 2x. The closest competitor raised $61,639.
- No. 1 in service hours 5,040, by a factor of nearly 2x. The closest competitor was 2,548 service hours.
- No. 6 in fraternity membership with 145 men on the roster in the fall. The largest chapter had 175 members.
- No. 3 in new member GPA with 3.20 from 31 men. The highest new member average of any chapter was 3.23 with 10 new members.
The average IFC membership was 86. IFC chapters averaged 2.95 GPA and the all-male average was 2.99 in the fall.
Of the 31,006 undergraduate students at Purdue in the fall, 20.6 are Greek. The fraternity, sorority and cooperative organizations contributed 29,991 service hours and $810,679, of which $475,357 was part of PUDM fund-raising.
In the fall report, 40 were IFC (Interfraternity Council), 21 were Panhellenic, 12 were cooperatives, 11 were Multcultural Greeks and 9 were National Pan-Hellenic Council members.
