Membership in Pi Kappa Alpha gives students the opportunity to make the most of their college experience. Pikes experience what it means to be involved and responsible individuals who promote community service, active campus involvement, and high levels of academic achievement. Below are four qualities Pi Kappa Alpha looks for in a potential member.
The members of Pi Kappa Alpha at Missouri S&T hold academic success in high esteem. Consistently achieving a house average above the All Men’s GPA and All Greek GPA, Pi Kappa Alpha is one of the top academic fraternities on campus. Our alumni consistently donate around $70,000 worth of scholarships to our members every year. We also provide many opportunities to promote academic success including study hours on all week nights, focused study groups, monetary scholarships, and more.
Pi Kappa Alpha encourages all of its members to be involved in the house and on campus. We realize that to succeed in the business world, one needs to have ample leadership skills. With an average of over two organizations per member, and many members holding executive positions across campus, Pi Kappa Alpha is one of the most involved fraternities at Missouri S&T. This involvement helps improve time management skills, build self awareness, and prepare our members for a lucrative career beyond the university.
Pi Kappa Alpha is an athletic powerhouse. We have a very competitive spirit in everything that we do, and it shows most prominently in our intramural games. Pikes are Division 1 intramural champions 16 of the past 17 years. We compete in all intramural sports, from basketball to football to billiards. Pi Kappa Alpha encourages all of its members to push themselves in everything they do. Competition breeds excellence - in the classroom, on the playing field, and in our daily lives.
The members of Pi Kappa Alpha hold themselves to a high standard of gentlemanly conduct. We actively work to promote values of integrity, intellect, and high moral character in all that we do. Members of the fraternity are taught proper social skills and etiquette through membership development programs, and given the opportunities to practice these skills at all types of events. Members are also strongly encouraged to participate in community service and philanthropy events.
