The Chapter

Pi Kappa Phi is located at 908 Curtis Avenue. Our house is a quick walk to class and is right in the center of all the excitement and activity of Greek Town.

Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity

Pi Kappa Phi encourages freshmen members to live in the residence halls for at least one year. The residence halls are an excellent way to get involved on campus and make friends outside of the fraternity. It is also the #1 way to meet and recruit new members. However, freshmen are allowed to move into the house.

How many meals do in-house men get per week? 15 meals each week Monday - Thursday = breakfast, lunch, dinner Friday = breakfast & lunch Sunday = dinner

The House

How many men live in the house? 58 men The nine officers of the E-Council are required to live in the house so that they can best fulfill their chapter responsibilities.

The university requires every Greek house on campus to have a house mom or house dad. Our house dad lives in the downstairs apartment. His presence is necessary for insurance reasons, and he also serves as a liasion to the Housing Corporation.

Brothers live in the house anywhere from 2-5 semesters.

Homecoming is an original Mizzou tradition and one of the most memorable parts about being Greek. Each fall the alumni return to campus for a weekend to celebrate Mizzou spirit and pride. The fall semester is dedicated to preparing for this memorable weekend. Greek chapters make house decorations, act in theater skits, complete service events, and donate blood. The Homecoming weekend concludes with the football game where the Homecoming king and queen are announced.

The Traditions

Greek Week is a tradition very similar to Homecoming. However unlike Homecoming, this event is specific to the Greek Community and is far less rigorous. But the competition is still fierce. This competition between Greek chapters takes place in the spring. The categories of competition include a skit, a blood drive, service projects, and games.

Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity

Pi Kappa Phi has an official tailgating spot where brothers, alumni, friends, and parents can hang out and enjoy themselves before home football games.

A marriage party is an easy way to meet girls from the sorority we are paired with for Homecoming or Greek Week.

Social During the year, we grill burgers and hot dogs provided by our house chef on the front porch. This is a great time to hang out with brothers and socialize with sorority girls.

Rose Ball is the name of our spring formal. Last year we went to the Lake of the Ozarks and stayed at the Lodge of Four Seasons. Pi Kappa Phi chartered a private yacht for the night and spent the evening having a good time out on the lake.

How long is pledgeship? Associate membership lasts one semester. What is the Standards Board? Pi Kappa Phi’s internal judiciary system that enforces the chapter rules amongst its members. Is Greek Life going to hurt my grades? The transition to college academics can be difficult. Pi Kappa Phi requires associate members to attend study sessions during the week. Also, there is a quiet study room in the basement. Remember, the all Greek average GPA is higher than the campus average GPA.

Associates must have a semester or cumulative GPA of 2.5 in order to be initiated into the fraternity.
