Jan 27, 2013 Lexington, KY The Omega chapter of The Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity is proud to announce that 17 currently enrolled students at the University of Kentucky have accepted a bid and have therefore become potential new members of our chapter and brotherhood.
The University of Kentucky plays hosts to over 20 different fraternities ranging from 15 to 130 members who all play a part in competing for potential new members every Spring and Fall. A single week is set aside at the beginning of each school semester when incoming freshman and any other student that are interested in joining a fraternity can interact with active members of any fraternity on campus that interests them. These two weeks are known by the college community as Rush Week.
Now that these 17 outstanding men have received and accepted bids from the chapter, they will undergo an eight-week process before getting initiated and becoming active members of the organization. This process is in place to insure that these young men gain adequate knowledge of the chapters history, become familiar with a majority of the current members, and learn how to become True Pikes before getting initiated.
Direct any recruitment questions towards our current Recruitment Chair, Brady Culver at firstname.lastname@example.org, and direct any new member education process questions at our current Pledge Educator, Sean LaManna at email@example.com.
