Once a Pike, always a Pike.
When you became a Pike, you joined a lifetime network of 275,000 brothers. You can continue that association almost anywhere in North America by joining an alumni association or volunteering at the local level.
Pike Shaped You. Now You Can Shape Pike.
Local volunteer support is vital to the success and relevance of our Chapter and our Fraternity. Alumni mentors serve at all levels of the Fraternity. Alumni Advisory Boards, House Corporations, and Alumni Association volunteers play critical roles in making better men and adding to the lifelong experience of being a Pike.
Three Ways to Serve at the Local Level
Alumni Advisory Board
The creation and maintenance of an alumni advisory board is beneficial for the chapter and alumnus volunteers. For the chapter, it offers more perspectives and expertise than one alumnus could possibly provide. For alumni, it makes advising a much more manageable and enjoyable experience. An alumni advisory board consists of alumnus members who can offer the following:
- Their professional expertise and support to the undergraduate chapter
- Counsel and advice to chapter leadership
- Assistance in the areas of academics, leadership, undergraduate recruitment, and financial management
- A commitment to helping the chapter improve
If housing is a competitive factor on campus, the purpose of the house corporation and its volunteers is to achieve and retain competitive housing for the benefit of the chapter. This is best achieved through effective management and long-term planning.
House corporation volunteers come from all walks of life. However, it is ideal to have board members with corporate management and/or real estate related backgrounds. Above all, having a passion for providing premier housing for their chapter is a must.
The easiest way for an alumnus member to stay involved with the Fraternity is to actively participate in a local alumni association. The creation and maintenance of a chapter-based association allows alumni to maintain contact with their brothers, their chapter, and their university.
Area based associations provide both social and professional networking opportunities in major metropolitan areas.
Our alumni associations stay connected with other brothers through a variety of events hosted by the association (i.e. golf tournaments, Founders Day banquets, homecoming festivities, etc.).

Currently the Columbus State University does not have ‘official’ Alumni in the sense that no one has graduated from Columbus State University as an active member of Pi Kappa Alpha since we are still currently a colony. However our colony has already witnessed the graduations of some of our colony members which we will always hold close to us for “official” brother or not, we have all forged deep and meaningful relationships with each other that will stand the test of time.
We recognize our graduating members that will be inducted into Alumni status upon receiving our charter and we hope that they will never forget their time here with us at Columbus State University.
