Fall new member recruitment began on Aug. 20, as dozens and dozens of prospective new members visited with fraternity members on the Memorial Mall during Meet the Greeks in the early afternoon and then again at a
barbeque at the fraternity house, 330 N. Grant St.

Pi Kappa Phi has been name the top fraternity at Purdue in seven of the last 10 years. It has the second largest membership on campus (out of 38 fraternities) and is consistently among the top 25 percent in all categories – grades, philanthropic fund-raising, and service hours.
Pi Kappa Phi is perhaps best known for its national service project, The Ability Experience (www.abilityexperience.org) whereby members serve people with disabilities. The chapter has numerous campus outreach efforts including assisting with special needs classes at a local high school. Furthermore, in the spring semester alone, the chapter raised $15,060 to assist people with disabilities.
