Brothers of Pi Kappa Phi are men of C.L.A.S.S.: Character, Leadership, Academics, Sportsmanship, and Service. It is these ideals that brothers of Pi Kappa Phi all share and hold true. Through these ideals, brothers use their time as collegiate members to better themselves as leaders and as men. Pi Kappa Phi is the finest fraternity in the country, with over 170 chapters nationwide, over 100,000 brothers initiated throughout its 106 year history, and many alumni holding powerful positions in the worlds of politics, business, military, journalism, and science.
The Alpha Xi chapter of Pi Kappa Phi was founded at Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute in 1928 and was re-chartered at St. John’s University in 2002, making it the oldest chapter of any fraternity or sorority on campus. With over 820 brothers in our chapter alone, it is one of the largest fraternities ever on the St. John’s campus. As a brother of Pi Kappa Phi, networking opportunities are seemingly endless.
The Alpha Xi chapter here at St. John’s has the highest GPA among all IFC fraternities. We are the biggest active chapter on campus, and are the only IFC fraternity to have not only one, but two brothers in the President’s Society, the highest honor bestowed on any student at St. John’s University. We also have brothers in Order of Omega (a prestigious leadership honors society), ROTC, and the Interfraternity Council. Pi Kappa Phi takes pride in being a Fraternity of leaders.
When you really sit down and think of which fraternity is right for you, you don’t have to look any further than Pi Kappa Phi.
