Today, its student leaders carry on that rich legacy of excellence as one of the top student organizations on campus and one of the most respected chapters in the national Fraternity. In those 15 years, alumni purchased and paid-off a chapter house, earned countless campus and national awards, erected a wrought-iron clock on campus, established a million-dollar endowed scholarship for Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity members, and more importantly, have changed the lives of more than 265 initiates.
