Pi Kappa Phi

Since 1904, the brothers of Pi Kappa Phi have been building better men on college campuses across the nation. Our chapter, Alpha Tau, was installed on June 13, 1931. The brothers reside in a 19th century mansion located in Downtown Troy, which earned the chapter its nickname “Castle”. Since then, the men of the Alpha Tau chapter have held themselves to the highest standards of CLASS – Character, Leadership, Academics, Sportsmanship, and Service. Pi Kappa Phi is the only fraternity to own and operate its own national philanthropy, The Ability Experience, with the purpose of instilling lifelong service in our members and serving people with disabilities. Since its creation, members have raised nearly $8 million dollars as well as donated thousands of man hours to renovate facilities that serve people with disabilities. Our chapter in particular raises money through philanthropy events such as Haunted House and Pedal for Push. Rushing Pi Kappa Phi promises to be a life changing experience. You will build friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime as well as develop leadership and communication skills that will further your academic career.
