The Alpha Omega Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha was founded at Kansas State University in 1913 making us one of the oldest Fraternities at K-State. Our members strive to become Scholars, Leaders, Athletes and Gentlemen through many different opportunities inside the chapter. Below is a breakdown of how we work to attain these objects:
- Scholars – We have a system in place called academic reform where younger members receive mentor within the same college to tutor and aid them with scholastic decisions. We also have systems in place to help members struggling with classes that are not involved in academic reform, such as study hours that academically successful members also attend to aid struggling brothers.
- Athletes – Pike is consistently in the top 4 out of 27 fraternities in overall intramurals and placed top 4 in every major team sport during the 2013-2014 academic year. We also have brothers compete in every individual sport from ping pong, to wrestling with multiple campus wide individual intramural champions each year. On top of our success as a house in intramural sports, we also have multiple members of the Kansas State Men’s Soccer and Lacrosse teams.
- Leaders – At Alpha Omega we put a strong emphasis on becoming leaders not only in the house, but on campus and in the Manhattan community. Currently we have Presidents in 3 different on campus organizations, Vice Presidents in over 5, ambassadors for several different majors offered at K-State, as well as members of many different executive boards and leadership teams in all facets of campus life.
- Gentlemen – In our chapter we believe that one of the most important things to learn as a young man is how to truly be a gentlemen. Through many different events and guest speakers we stress from the beginning the importance of being respectful of everyone, especially the women that we are interacting with. Not only do we stress proper manners, but we help our members learn how to dress and act appropriately in the world to aid in the process of finding a job and being successful members of the work force.
