Why Pi Alpha Phi?
Pi Alpha Phi is a place where members develop character and live by time-honored traditions of honor, integrity, and brotherhood. Since our founding in 1929, we have stood for excellence and set high expectations for our members. We push ourselves to strive for higher goals and to hold each other accountable to those goals. Fraternal life is an opportunity to find peers to challenge you to reach your fullest potential. Our members expect to change the world and for over 90 years have delivered on those expectations.
How do I join Pi Alpha Phi?
Membership with Pi Alpha Phi begins at an active chapter at your university. Existing members (actives) extend a bid to join. If the prospective member accepts the bid, he goes through a pledge process at the respective chapter. Pledgeship assimilates new members into the fraternity and prepares them to make contributions to the house and to advance the ideals of the organization. If you are interested in joining a chapter of Pi Alpha Phi at your campus, contact any of the brothers (you can find contact information at your school or on the chapter directory page at this website). Additionally, chapters typically post rush information on their website or social media pages at the beginning of each academic term.
If there is no current chapter at your university, feel free to contact our Expansion Chair at if you are interested in starting a chapter of Pi Alpha Phi at your school.
When you join Pi Alpha Phi, you are entering a lifelong brotherhood that will continually grow and evolve. Many campuses throughout the nation now have a chapter. This is your chance to join the greatest Asian-American fraternity.
When you first donned the letters of Pi Alpha Phi, you made a powerful statement of who you were and what you believed in. Those memories and experiences have stayed with you and contributed to who you are today.
The strength of our fraternity is fueled by the support of individuals like you who unite to promote and better our institution and its members.
If you would like to contribute monetarily, please make a tax-deductible donation to the Pi Alpha Phi Alumni Scholarship Fund. Your donations fund scholarship opportunities for our undergraduate brothers to help them achieve goals both academic and beyond.
Although there are many other reasons why alumni become involved after graduation, the reality is that brotherhood is forever. This extends from members who have just graduated to the oldest alumni. We all share the common experience of being a part of Pi Alpha Phi. As such, one can never be too old or too young to actively participate as an alumnus.
Sooner or later we all complete our schooling and become alumni. Why should being active in the fraternity stop there? There are many reasons why alumni, both old and young alike, should still be involved with the fraternity on a national level, as well as with the individual chapters.
