The fall new member recruitment process starts Sunday, Aug. 20 at Pi Kappa Phi, 330 N. Grant St.
Pi Kappa Phi is seeking new members who excel in academics, leadership and/or service. So, if you were a high academic achiever in high school, held leadership positions (athletic team captains, class officer or club president) or did service projects in school or in your community, you are the type of person we seek.
Pi Kappa Phi is one of 40 Interfraternity Council chapters at Purdue and they are not all the same. Some seek members in specific majors (engineering or agriculture, for example) or have a specific religious background. Others are known for their athletic prowess or social standing.
Pi Kappa Phi is a well rounded chapter in many ways, but is perhaps the most sought out fraternity at Purdue. Our reputation for excellence and achievement helps set us apart. For example, the chapter was the only fraternity to be the Top 10 in each of Purdue’s rankings. We were No. 2 in philanthropic fund raising ($24,322 in the spring semester), No. 5 in membership (141 members), No. 5 in community service hours (1,123) and No. 9 in average GPA at 3.29 (the highest average GPA among fraternities with 135+ members).
To break down the academic success even further, in the spring
A total of 11 members earned a 4.0 GPA in the spring, 8.1% while 93 had a 3.0 or higher, 68.4%. Furthermore, 62 members were on the dean’s list and/or semester honors, 45.6%.
Pi Kappa Phi is the most honored chapter in Purdue history being named the top fraternity at Purdue in 10 of the last 16 years – including six consecutive times in one period, the most ever at the university.
Our new member recruitment calendar as well as contact information is listed in our recruitment tab on the website. Thank you for your consideration.
