Academic Success

Enhancing the Intellect Through Word and Deed


“Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.” –John Dewey, American Philosopher and Educator

Since our inception in 1904, our founders charted a clear path as scholars and proclaimed the importance of enhancing the intellect through word and deed. How appropriate that the Chrestomathic Literary Society served as the catalyst for the development of Nu Phi and what would eventually become our great fraternity.

Pi Kappa Phi fraternity is committed to providing our undergraduate members with the tools and resources they require to excel in and out of the classroom.
