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 attributes Pi Kappa Alpha looks for in a potential member.

Pi Kappa Alpha at Missouri S&T 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 all campus 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. We believe that through athletic competition, we build teamwork skills fundamental to success in the business world, bolster unity within the chapter, contribute to the physical and mental health of our members, and improve the quality of the overall college experience.
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. We seek men that respect themselves, their peers, and their communities. Members of the fraternity are taught proper social skills and etiquette through membership development programs, and given the opportunity to practice these skills at all types of events. Members are also strongly encouraged to participate in community service and philanthropy events. We believe that a commitment to service is a crucial part of personal development.
