Dozens of prospective members visited the Pi Kappa Phi booth at the Meet the Greeks and Cooperatives event in the Purdue Memorial Union North Ballroom on Jan. 17 during the first week of spring fraternity rush.
This week, chapter members will have new member recruitment events through Thursday night. On Wednesday, you can meet the brothers and get house tours. On Thursday, you can learn about the chapter’s outreach program to people with disabilities – The Ability Experience.
What helps set us apart from other chapters on this campus is our commitment to service.
Our year-round service activities include the following:
- 72-Hour David Feltner 72-Hour Memorial Bike-a-Thon, fall semester
- Arctoberfest Halloween-themed part with the Arc of Tippecanoe, a local chapter of a national agency assisting adults with disabilities, fall semester
- War of Roses, a two-week competition among sororities resulting in their leading member being named the Rose of Pi Kappa Phi, spring semester
- Pi Kapp 100, a 100-kilomter cycling event raising funds and awareness for people with disabilities, spring semester
- Pi Kapp/Best Buddy Prom, co-sponsored with fellow student organization Best Buddies-Purdue hosting adults with disabilities for a prom for those who were unable to participate during their high school years, spring semester
- Special Needs Volunteering, assist teachers and aides with day care and life skills, year-round
The chapter looks for new members who hope to excel in service, leadership and academics.
