The True PIKE Experience

Development does not stop after initiation.
True PIKE Experience Overview

Since its inception in 2003, PIKE University serves as the combined banner for all the Fraternity’s educational and leadership programs and maintains itself as the premiere leadership development program in the fraternity world.

PIKE University events are professionally facilitated events that occur through eight regional Leadership Summits, a Chapter Executives Conference, and The Academy/International Convention.

Building on the success of PIKE University, Pi Kappa Alpha now provides the True PIKE Experience, our peer-to-peer focused, chapter-based, four-year membership development program.

What is the True PIKE Experience?

The True PIKE Experience is an individualistic, comprehensive member-development program that is branded around the Fraternity’s True Pike values statement. This program incorporates all involvement aspects of Pi Kappa Alpha (including scholastic performance, personal development, leadership, PIKE University, community engagement, campus involvement and participation) through in-person and peer-to-peer engagement, coupled with peer-to-peer facilitated educational curriculum to both complement individual involvement and provide members with a greater appreciation for what it means to be a True Pike, ultimately preparing them for success in life. The TPE operationalizes the commitments of the True Pike that members make to themselves, their brothers, their fraternity, and their community.
