Benefits of Greek Life
Did you know that more than 60 percent of U.S. Congress members and 80 percent of Supreme Court justices belong to a Greek organization? Or that half of all S&P 500 officers and directors are Greek?
Most Greek organizations emphasis leadership development in some form or another, and fraternities provide numerous opportunities to assume leadership roles. In fact, Pi Kappa Phi was founded to create leadership opportunities for its member.
Virtually all fraternities and sororities include service as a core component of the member experience. Pi Kappa Phi, like most Greek organizations, aims to instill a lifelong commitment to giving back. Each year, our student members collectively raise nearly $1 million and volunteer for 5,000 hours for people with disabilities.
An ‘alumni network’ is one of the great benefits of joining any fraternity.
Pi Kappa Phi has more than 80,000 living alumni—doctors,
lawyers, accountants, military officers, business executives and a host of other
professions across the globe.
But how does one tap in to the alumni
network? Most chapters elect to host various alumni events throughout
the year, but students members also have opportunities to attend
national conferences and events,
interact with volunteers and staff members and connect through social
and professional networks that are exclusive to members of Pi Kappa Phi.
