Pi Kappa Phi’s legacy program allows alumni members to create a truly unique bond that blends family with fraternity. The National Headquarters refers all information obtained through the Legacy Program directly to the student chapter, which in turn recruits the legacy member. You can recommend a legacy or contact our Chapter Development Team with questions regarding Pi Kappa Phi’s legacy program.
Who qualifies as a legacy? Traditionally, a legacy is considered to be a direct family member of an initiated brother (i.e. brother, son, nephew, grandson, etc.). Pi Kappa Phi’s Supreme Law expands on that definition to also treat any person directly recommended by an alumnus in good standing as a legacy. In short, a legacy is a young man who an alumnus holds in high regard and would recommend for membership in a chapter. Do all legacies receive bids? In Pi Kappa Phi, no chapter is required to extend a bid to a legacy if they feel they are not a good fit for the chapter. However, chapters are required by Supreme Law to actively recruit legacies. In the case where the chapter chooses not to offer a bid to a legacy, the archon or vice archon must contact the alumnus associated with the legacy to provide an explanation for not extending the bid.
Family Member Program
When you enroll your child in the Family Member Program, he or she will receive a gift from Pi Kappa Phi. And as your child grows, he or she will periodically receive cards, notes and letters. Once your child has decided on a university to attend, he or she will receive information about the benefits of “Going Greek.” Boys will also receive information about becoming a Pi Kappa Phi legacy.
