At the College of Charleston in 1904, three men founded the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity that was to be built upon the principles of CLASS: Character, Leadership, Academics, Service and Sportsmanship. In 1998, Pi Kappa Phi brought these qualities to West Georgia. Since our founding on the West Georgia campus three years ago, Pi Kappa Phi has raised the standard to which all other fraternities are held. Our Fraternity is constantly looking for men who want to take part in continuing that tradition of excellence.
Pi Kappa Phi plays an active role on campus, with brothers participating in a number of campus organizations including the Student Government Vice President, SGA senators, University Ambassadors, Summer Orientation Leaders, and Student Activities Council Chairmen. We also boast the highest GPA on campus for the past 2 years. However, our leadership is not confined to the classroom. Pi Kappa phi also prides itself on our intramural programs. We believe in not only playing to win, but competing with class and maintaining good sportsmanship. For these reasons, Pi Kappa Phi was selected as the Outstanding Male Athletic Team for 2001.
In addition, Pi Kappa Phi plays an active role in the community. By participating in community service projects, such as building playgrounds, a 56 Hour Bike-A-Thon, and a number of other community fundraisers, brothers of Pi Kappa Phi get a chance to give back to the community and build stronger brotherhood at the same time. Our national outreach project, PUSH America gives brothers the chance to participate in events that raise both money and awareness for people with disabilities. In turn, Pi Kapps get the opportunity to see first hand the money they raise go to work by participating in weekend long projects held in various locations throughout the country.
In joining Pi Kappa Phi, you are not only becoming part of a growing legacy of excellence, you are becoming part of a lifelong Brotherhood. Our Fraternity is made up of men that are "Strong Enough to Care" about improving themselves on an academic, athletic, and social basis. One look at Pi Kappa Phi and you will see that we are definitely a Fraternity with CLASS.
