Pi Kappa Alpha (PIKE) was founded in Room 47 West Range at the University of Virginia in 1868. Since then, it's developed into an international brotherhood and become one of the largest fraternal organizations in the world.
How? It's simple. Pi Kappa Alpha has remained dedicated to developing men of integrity, intellect, success and high moral character, and to fostering a truly lifelong fraternal experience.
Pi Kappa Alpha is composed of more than 275,000 lifetime members, 220 chapters and 150 alumni associations in North America. In the last 10 years, PIKE membership grew by 51% and maintains the largest average chapter size of North American fraternities. Between 2014 and 2015, Pikes raised over $2.125 million and contributed 300,000+ hours in community service.
Our members continue to have a positive impact on their campuses, their communities and throughout their life. We believe the fraternal experience makes better men, better friends, better husbands, better fathers and better citizens.
The Kappa Psi Chapter:
On March 2018, Consultants Connor McDermott and Taylor Wilson from Pi Kappa Alpha Memorial Headquarters, came down to the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona to recruit potential gentlemen to join the PIKE brotherhood. They were able to recruit 30 gentlemen to start off the legacy of this now colony. From March 2018 till now, PIKE at Cal Poly Pomona has grown to be the largest Fraternity on campus growing to 70+ outstanding active brothers that embody the qualities of Scholars, Leaders, Athletes, and Gentlemen. We are looking forward to making our mark on the Cal Poly Pomona Campus and further advancing the morals and characteristics of what it is to be a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.
In the morning of April 13, 2019, International President of Pi Kappa Alpha, Mark Dziatczak, flew to Pomona, California to help reform what's is now called, the Kappa Psi Chapter of Cal Poly Pomona. The Kappa Psi Chapter was one of the fastest colony to charter in a year on the west side of the United States.
