Pi Kappa Alpha was founded in Room 47 West Range at the University of Virginia in 1868. Since then, it’s developed into an international brotherhood and become one of the largest fraternal organizations in the world.

How? It’s simple. Pi Kappa Alpha has remained dedicated to developing men of integrity, intellect, success and high moral character, and to fostering a truly lifelong fraternal experience.

In the last 10 years, PIKE membership grew by 51% and maintains the largest average chapter size of North American fraternities.
