Our Ideals

First, we are looking for men with CHARACTER. Men who possess a high level of respect and integrity not only for themselves, but also for those around them. We seek persons who are confident in what they believe and have the courage to stand up for those beliefs.

Every member of Pi Kappa Phi is expected to:

  • Not tolerate hazing in any form.
  • Exhibit ultimate respect for each individual member.
  • Act responsibly in every situation.
  • Be confident in what he believes and has the courage to stand up for his convictions in every situation.


We are looking for men who are LEADERS not only within the chapter but on campus as well. We know that there are many negative stigmas attached to Greek life. We want men who are constantly breaking down those negative stereotypes and bringing a positive light to the Greek community as a whole.

We are looking for men who strive for ACADEMIC success. We believe in this to such a degree that Pi Kappa Phi pays an Academic Coach for our chapters in order to ensure that we are providing every opportunity for Pi Kapps to succeed academically. College is supposed to be the "best years of your life" -- why not stick around to enjoy them?

Lastly, Pi Kappa Phi is seeking men with a heart for SERVICE. As a national social fraternity, we pride ourselves on being the only national fraternal organization to have founded, developed and maintained its own national philanthropy -- Push America. Pi Kappa Phi raises money and awareness for persons with disabilities. We seek men who will take full advantage of these opportunities to better themselves and those around them.

We are looking for men who celebrate the spirit of SPORTSMANSHIP. Pi Kappa Phi feels that the spirit of competition in the athletic environment helps produce the qualities of teamwork, sportsmanship, and selfless contribution. These are skills and traits needed to become a better student, leader, citizen, and fraternity man.
