The Ad Astra Society

Pi Kappa Phi strives to create an uncommon and lifelong brotherhood that develops leaders and encourages service to others for the betterment of our communities.
Derived from the Latin phrase meaning “To the Stars,” the Ad Astra Society recognizes the Fraternity’s top student leaders for their achievement and impact within Pi Kappa Phi, on their campus and/or in the local community.

No more than one percent of Pi Kappa Phi’s undergraduate students may be inducted in the Ad Astra Society each year.


Throughout May & June 2019, students, alumni and friends of the fraternity were challenged to nominate student members and recent graduates who exemplify Pi Kappa Phi’s commitment to leadership. The Fraternity received over 300 nominations and applications and we are excited to recognize 124 members—one percent of our student membership—for their achievements.

Applications and nominations for the 2019 class of the Ad Astra Society were accepted from June 1 - July 15 and induction decisions will be released on August 30th. If you are an exceptional leader who deserves recognition, keep an eye out for applications and nominations to open again in Spring 2020.
