When Gamma Chapter was founded in 1871, there were less than 100 students at the College.  Notable alumni of Gamma Chapter include F. Anderson Morse, past Pike International President, and Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.  Gamma Chapter is the third-oldest social fraternity on campus.

Our Chapter strives to uphold our organization’s purpose of developing men of integrity, intellect, and high moral character.  Our chapter is one of great diversity that includes varsity athletes, foreign exchange students,

Student Alumni Council members, campus tour guides, club sports players, the Club Golf President, and brothers from all over the country- giving our members the unique opportunity to grow and learn from a wide array of experiences.

“We believe in the importance of virtue and commit to living the values of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. We recognize that truth is the foundation of all lasting association, and we will seek wisdom and knowledge while serving others in modesty and dignity.

Recalling that Pi Kappa Alpha is a lifelong commitment, I therefore reaffirm to live my life with honor and courage seeking the inherent worth in each person I meet; to accept all brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha in love and friendship; and to serve my faith, my family, my community, my alma mater, and my Fraternity.

Only then, by living these virtues, will we realize our fullest potential.”
