Constant Brotherhood Events
The brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha are always spending time with each other, weather its at weekly brotherhood events such as volleyball, cookouts, or movie nights. In addition to these things the brothers are always willing to spontaneous activities, that are often funded by the brotherhood budget. Some brothers also regularly plan fun trips during breaks throughout the year, some trips in the past include Hawaii, Aspen Ski Trip, and a Gatlinburg Adventure Trip.
4784 Hours of Community Service
Pi Kappa Alpha is consistently the fraternity with the most community service hours on campus. It is not uncommon for people in the Terre Haute and Rose-Hulman community to reach out for help as their first option for community service opportunities, because they know that the Pike brothers are reliable and consistent. Some of our previous events include planting Trees for the local community, assisting in Blues Fest, building wheelchair ramps, and helping out at the Vigo County Library.
Pi Kappa Alpha consistently organizes philanthropy events that give back to local organizations such as the Terre Haute Special Olympics. Our yearly firetruck pull event is consistently a popular event at both the ISU and RHIT campuses. In addition to this event we also help organize and coordinate other large events throughout the year.
