A message from External Vice President Jason Aoki
Austin (left) and Kyle(right) ensure Pike is actively involved in the Madison community. Our chapter reaches out and participates in campus fundraisers, philanthropies and hold positions in other campus groups.
Our brothers participate in fundraisers such as bake sales, cookouts, and 5K races with Greek Week and Homecoming Week being the most popular. Some of the events that take place during these weeks are parades, Greek Olympics, and an Air Band concert. Whatever the event may be, we show up full of enthusiasm and represent our fraternity in a positive manner!
Athletics: Andy Frank (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Being a part of Pike makes one a part of an athletic tradition, which has only gotten stronger in recent years. Pike routinely earns championships in intramural and philanthropy competitions. In addition to campus success, Pike has brothers who have qualified for the Boston Marathon, competed in an IRONMAN and play an essential role on the UW Lacrosse team.
Off the field, we are happy to have a brother serve as the head student manager of the UW Men’s Basketball team, a brother who interns with ESPN Madison, a few brothers who serve as sports broadcasters at the student radio and a brother who writes for the Wisconsin hockey team.
Community Service: Jonah Blocker and Alex McLaughlin (email@example.com)
Jonah (left) and Alex (right) provide our chapter with weekly opportunities to give back to the community. Each brother is expected to complete at minimum 20 hours of community service each semester, with many happily completing more. Some of the organizations we work with include: Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics of Dane County and Wisconsin Public Television.
We are always looking for new ways to give back to the community. If your organization has service opportunities, please don’t hesitate to email Jason or Jeff!
Colin (right) and Keoni (left) are in charge of connecting our chapter with other Pike chapters across the country. We have played host to chapters from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, University of Iowa along with the brothers of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Omaha chapters. We have had brothers travel down to the University of Illinois and the University of Iowa for football games along with Northwestern University.
If your chapter is interested in visiting the University of Wisconsin, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Philanthropy: Aidan Leaser and Matt Blanch (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Aidan (left) and Matt (right) are in charge of putting together Pikes philanthropy event each semester. In the fall semester, we host Pike CYC, where people cycle in remembrance of Taylor Trudeau (Gamma Mu, New Hampshire) who passed away after a yearlong battle with Leukemia in August 2008. 100% of all proceeds go to researching a cure for all blood cancers.
In the spring we hold PIKE Spike, a university wide volleyball tournament. This event brings our love for athletics together with our passion to give back. Each year we decide on a charity to support through our tournament. Through these events, Pi Kappa Alpha is committed to charitable giving.
