About Pi Kappa Phi at Michigan State University:

The Alpha Theta chapter of Pi Kappa Phi was established at Michigan State University on May 9, 1925. However, the chapter’s roots extend back to February, 1917, when they were known as the “Orphic Literary Society,” because of a ban on national fraternities at MSU. When Pi Kappa Phi was established at MSU, it was the fifth national fraternity admitted to campus. Nationally, Pi Kappa Phi was established in 1904 at the College of Charleston, and has more than 132,000 brothers (12,500+ active) from 231 chapters (187 active). The mission of Pi Kappa Phi is to create an uncommon and lifelong brotherhood that develops leaders and encourages service to others for the betterment of our communities. The values of Pi Kappa Phi include: common loyalty, personal responsibility, achievement, accountability, campus involvement, responsible citizenship, and lifelong commitment.

Since 1925, Pi Kappa Phi has initiated more than 1,700 men into their brotherhood, and is one of the largest houses at MSU, and has become one of the top houses for intramural sports. The brothers of Pi Kappa Phi are eager to meet new students at Michigan State University, and hope that you are interested in joining one of the nation’s oldest fraternities.
