A Lifetime of Success

This experience builds skills and relationships that last long after graduation. We find men who want to be the best at everything they do. In every measurable category for fraternities, PIKE ranks among the best.

We challenge members to be pillars of integrity and beacons of success on their campuses and within their communities. By finding and recruiting the most outstanding men on campus, we create the ideal fraternal experience. All in all, being a PIKE is a lot of fun.

Scholars

Students enroll in college to get a quality education. The Fraternity places a strong emphasis on scholarship and on educating our members both inside and outside of the classroom. Through minimum GPA standards, mentor programs, educational programming, and Pike University events, members are equipped to excel academically.

The best way to predict your future is to create it.

Gentlemen

PIKE is dedicated to developing men of integrity, intellect, and high moral character. We seek men that respect themselves, their peers, and their communities, as stated in our True Pike values.

Character is definitely the most important attribute that a young man possesses.

Members are encouraged to participate in community service and philanthropy opportunities presented by our chapters. PIKE believes that a commitment to service is a crucial part of personal development.

Pikes also learn social skills and etiquette through membership development programs, as well as mixers and formals.

Leaders

PIKE provides an arena for developing leadership skills that will benefit members throughout their lives.

I strongly benefited from the broad range of leadership experiences I received as president of my PIKE chapter.

Chapters are organized similar to a corporation, led by an executive team of undergraduates. The executive team oversees various committee chairs in the areas of finance, operations, recruitment, and continuing education to name a few. There are numerous opportunities to hone your leadership and management skills.

By being a part of one of the largest fraternal organizations in North America, our members enjoy the opportunity to not only gain elite leadership experience while in college, but to network with our highly successful alumni in their post-graduate careers.

Pike U is North America's premier fraternal leadership training conference series with over 10 regional and international events every year. With curriculum rivaling the caliber of any corporate training program, Pike U develops principled leadership, management, and personal development in a way that prepares our members for success in life.

Athletes

PIKE believes athletic competition encourages young men to challenge each other and to perform at their highest levels. We seek men who push themselves to be great at everything they do.

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.

Oregon, Gamma Pi ’70

We believe that through athletic competition, we build teamwork skills fundamental to success in the business world, bolster unity within the chapter, contribute to the physical and mental health of our members, and improve the quality of the overall college experience. Competition breeds excellence—in the classroom, on the playing fields, and in our daily lives.
