What is Alumni Relations
The Alumni are a strong part of a fraternity. They ensure history is never forgotten and help to teach the foster the active members. We understand that they are such huge assets. So socials are held for them, we invite them to do workshops and presentations for the colony, ask them for their help with networking, and we send the newsletter to the alumni to inform them of our chartering progress.
If you are an alumni and want to somehow get involved with our colony please contact me at email@example.com
First Semester Events
Homecoming Tailgate Party
This year we held a tailgate before and after McMasters Homecoming football game. It was a huge success, with a myriad of people showing up in their maroon garb ready to cheer on our school. What made the event even better was when Red Rain, our sponsor, came and gave everyone energy drinks to get them even more pumped for the football game. The few alumni, that our colony has, came to this event and had a great time. They fit in perfectly with the new members and were helping everyone to get brazened for the game. The party after the game was also impressive. We reached the capacity of the venue very early but got the alumni in just in time to show them another good time that night.
Alumni joined us for our brotherhood events during our Lockdown. This is where we locked all the brothers in a house and gave them brotherhood tasks. One of the tasks was to find out 2 facts about every single brother in the colony. They enjoyed the event very much because they had done it before when they were actives last year and it was really great for the actives to see such strong and successful men come back to our colony and join in our fun. Everyone enjoyed their presence very much.
John Gill, an alumnus from last year came and did a presentation for all of the actives and new members. He talked about the perks of being part of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, what it meant to him, and about being an alumnus for our colony. It made the actives extremely proud to be a Pike and got the new members very excited for their future with the fraternity.
Second Semester Events
For our Chartering Ceremony, we plan to have a big pig roast. We have a set amount of dues set aside to make this an enormous event. The ceremonys post-event will also have veggies and Halal meats so that everyone can be a part of the festivities! We will send out invitations to our own alumni, regional Pikes, and Headquarters, so that the actives and new members can network and meet as many outside Pikes as possible.
We are planning to have an alumnus Golf Trip. We will be going to Chedoke Golf Course, which is right down the street from McMaster. We will invite our alumni and any regional alumni who would like to come down and meet the newest chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha. It will hopefully be our first big event as a chapter.
Founders Day Party
Pi Kappa Alpha McMaster would like to have a tailgate party on Founder’s Day. We want to celebrate the 144th year of Pi Kappa Alpha and the pride we will feel to finally and truly be a part of such an incredible organization. We will invite our alumni and regional Pikes, if they are not already going to a party of their own.
