Life is Too Short to Drink Cheap Beer Durward W. Owen Of course, this statement will only literally apply to you if you drink beer. But even if you do not, it seems to me there is yet a message for all of us. I do not believe this statement is original to me. If so, it might be that some would say it may be my very first and only original thought. Regardless of who said it first, I find that it well expresses my current outlook on life, especially the portion of my life that is Pi Kappa Phi. What has cheap beer to do with Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity? This thought came to mind when I was recently attending a meeting of 43 other fraternity Chief Executive Officers. One of these CEOs indicated that his daughter's boyfriend spoke with him about entering a major university as a freshman and perhaps pledging his fraternity. The young man had a scholarship from a large engineering firm which required him to make straight A's in certain subjects. To reduce one grade in one of these subjects would cause a 25% decrease in the amount of scholarship funds available to him. The CEO confessed that he could not recommend to this young man that he affiliate w ith his fraternity under these circumstances.

Another CEO immediately spoke up and acknowledged that his daughter was about to enter a major university as well. His fraternity has a chapter on that campus. He admitted that he found it necessary for him and his wife to suggest to his daughter that she not socially associate w ith his fraternity chapter, at least through her freshman year.

Why did each of these fraternity executives feel such a dilemma? Would I have been likewise

tested as to my Pi Kappa Phi chapters under a similar circumstance? These fraternity chapters were probably not offering quality fraternity experiences. In effect, they were serving cheap beer. A fraternity chapter offering a cheap fraternity experience faces significant weakness in the areas of trust; values and ethics; personal conduct; caring attitudes about its members and guests; dependability; and provision for the learning environment needed by students. OK, you alumni: You thought you were off the hook. How much do you contribute of your time and effort to ensure that today's undergraduates receive a quality fraternity experience? Over the years, I have seen those alumni who enjoyed a quality chapter are those who continue to support the fraternity through their giving to the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation, their support of a chapter (often in an advisory capacity), their volunteerism in other capacities, or their attendance at Supreme Chapters. Not only did these alumni have a quality chapter, but they continue to have a quality fraternity experience. Those who drank the cheap beer? They claim to have been in a fraternity once. Cheap beer and cheap fraternity life seem to go hand in hand. Neither the young man nor the young lady could afford to be associated with such a cheap fraternity. Time on campus is too short to mess around with a cheap fraternity experience. Is your chapter offering potential members and f emale guests cheap beer? Pi Kappa Phi chapters should be strong enough to care about this issue.

lcHAPTER SPOTLIGHT Seven Spring Charterings will help to make Pi Kappa Phi

• • •

The Fastest Growing Fraternity in America During the spring of 1993, Pi Kappa Phi chartered seven chapters--more than anyone else in the fraternity world. Alpha Gamma-Oklahoma, Beta Lambda-Tampa, and Epsilon Lambda -USC Spartanburg w ere rechartered, while Pi Kappa Phi chartered at Eta Theta-San Francisco, Eta Iota-Christopher New port, Eta Kappa-S.U.N.Y. Plattsburgh, and Eta Lambda-S.U.N.Y.-Brockport. ' · Here, in the words of the newly initiated, are their stories, their histories, and their hopes and dreams for Pi Kappa Phi.

Eta Theta-San Francisco It was the weekend of March 27, 1993--a cold, clear morning. Excitement was high, and anticipation was thick in the air. The executive board of the University of San Francisco Associate Chapter greeted National Representatives, Jason Dodd and Tracy Maddux, with smiles and a sense of relief; the Eta Theta chapter was about to be born. After the Executives had been briefed, the chapter was called to order. Some concern was expressed over the chartering test; questions were posed and answered, then the chapter broke off into study groups. It was very quiet as the initiates filed into the testing room. Nervous smiles were exchanged, handshakes and hearty wishes of good luck were offered by the alumni present. After all were seated, the tests were handed out. There were groans and mumblings of distress, but these were few and far between. An hour later, the test was complete. Jason Dodd addressed the chapter and gave the task for the eveningpresenting three goals for the chapter and actions that will be employed to meet these goals. The following day brought about a small measure of anxiety and a series of questions. The oral board convened, chaired by Chartering Officer Paul Drake and Assistant Chartering Officer Ken Richards. After the oral boards, Drake and Richards decided that USF associate chapter was found fit to become Eta Theta. Initiations went well as the new brothers listened and observed after they had been initiated. Gamma and Zeta Lambda chapters assisted the national representatives during the initiation. Forty-nine proud new members of Pi Kappa Phi went home that evening, a little tired, a little worn, but very happy. Saturday morning greeted us with sunshine that seemed to be for us alone. Eta Theta chapter gathered for the final step of the initiation and chapter installation at USF's Lone Mountain Chapel. Questions, at last, were answered and we were finally given our brother's badges. The chapter concluded business and brothers went home to get some much deserved sleep before the night's chartering banquet. The banquet was held on the USF campus and the charter was presented to Archon Dane Riley. Chapter awards followed , and the National Office was formally thanked. Upon completion of the awards, the new Eta Theta chapter presented roses to all the ladies present and ended the evening by singing "The Rose" on bended knee. The weekend was concluded with the entire chapter attending morning mass at St. Ignatius Church. TheE ta Theta Chapter had come to stay at the University of San Francisco.

The Brothers of Eta Iota Chapter


Eta Iota-Christopher Newport April 2, 1993. Only nine months earlier the thought of a new fraternity at Christopher Newport U n.i versi ty was a twinkle in the eye of the chapter's founders. But on this night all of the hard work had paid off. There was a new chapter of Pi Kappa Phi in Newport News, Virginia. Pi Kappa Phi. For nine months these three words meant everything to us, while at the same time they meant nothing to us. We truly thought as an associate chapter that we knew what brotherhood meant. In reality, we were not far off. To be able to pull all of this together in such a short time took dedication and a sense of brotherhood, although nothing like the brotherhood we experienced during that chartering weekend. The final moment had arrived and we were ready for it. On Thursday evening, April1, Emerson Linney and Matt Hiatt administered the written exams to thirty frightened but excited young men. Afterwards, we all spent the night together involved in subordinate rituals to bring us closer to each other and to Pi Kappa Phi as well. The following evening the oral exams were led by Chartering Officer AI Woody (Area Governor of Area 9) and Assistant Chartering Officer Ed Bennett (Past National Council Member), bringing us one step closer to our goal. Ritual teams from Zeta Tau-Barton College and Delta Tau-James Madison University had been setting up ritual in a local church. After we arrived, some miscommunication between us and the church left us with no place to hold the ritual. Not ready to give up at this point, we quickly found another place

to hold the ritual. One of our alumni initiates, John Karatsikis, put himself on the line and opened up the school where he works as the Vice Principal. After waiting for the teams to set up, Ritual began for 31 men, well after midnight. Short! y before 4:00a.m. we left that school with a new outlook on life and tens of thousands of brothers all over the world. It was probably the only ritual in the history of Pi Kappa Phi which occurred in a chemistry lab. The brothers of Eta Iota Chapter would like to thank everyone involved in making this charter a reality: First of all, thanks to the National Office for their support, to Glenn Dickson for driving up to visit with us in the early days to get us started, and to Matt Hiatt, our Leadership Consultant, who kept us going with his ultimatums to get things done. We would also like to send special thinks to the Ritual teams from Barton College and James Madison University who made this night very special for us. Most importantly, we would like to thank our Chapter Advisor, Bob Sanders, Delta Tau, for all of his help. Without his help, we would have been fifteen guys sitting in a dark room planning our charter for 1995. Each man wearing this fraternity 's letters at Christopher Newport University should be equally proud of what we have achieved. Thanks to every brother who has worn the fraternity 's letters for making the fraternity what it is today. Hopefully, with the help of Eta Iota Chapter at Christopher Newport University we can take it one step further in the years to come.

Eta KappaS.U.N.Y. Plattsburgh On April17, 1993, the State University of New York Plattsburgh (S.U.N.Y. Plattsburgh) Associate chapter was chartered as the Eta Kappa Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi, and the 40 gentlemen celebrated their new beginning into the fraternity. The chartering officer was Kevin Murphy, who was assisted by Greg Brown. Brown originally colonized the group last April and his presence at the chartering was a proud moment for the gentlemen of Eta Kappa. The chartering of Eta Kappa begins a new conquest for the fraternity in the North. With the establishment of Eta Kappa and other chapters in the S.U.N.Y. system, Pi Kappa Phi has firmly established itself in the largest university system in the country. From the beginning of Eta Kappa, the gentlemen have faced hardships from the Greek Council and the administration. To have finally overcome these obstacles was a difficult, yet rewarding task. The gentlemen of Eta Kappa now look to restructure the Greek community of S.U.N.Y. Plattsburgh to improve Greek life for the campus, the community, and the members of fraternities and sororities. Eta Kappa is "committed to change," and the gentlemen now set their drive and ambition to making S.U.N.Y. Plattsburgh a better university. It is fitting that the 40 gentlemen of the Eta Kappa Chapter stand at the base of the Champlain monument overlooking the majestic icy waters of Lake Champlain. Like Champlain, the men of Eta Kappa have struggled through adversity and despair to search for a new beginning. Each man ha s persisted despite self doubt and denial from others. Like Champlain, the men of Eta Kappa have weathered the blows of enemies. Those who chose not to receive us as friends now accept us as equals. And like Champlain, the gentlemen of Eta Kappa have had to navigate difficult paths to achieve brotherhood. Photo by: Lance Flodin, Historian ; Article by: Mark Nolan, Vice Archon.

Eta Lambda-

~:~ ~~s~~路 e~o~?ou~~拢e~~henewest

addition of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. The new Eta Lambda chapter received its charter on Friday, April30. Chartering Officer for the event was Jim Krucher, National Council Member-at-Large. He was assisted by Kevin Corcoran, Area I Councilor. Pi Kappa Phi Administrative Staff members who coordinated the chartering weekend were Jason Dodd, Director of Chapter Services, and Matthew Hiatt, Leadership Consultant. Founding father Jim Hedler looks back at the beginning. "I can't believe it. I have the original minutes from our first meeting, the meeting was probably only 15 minutes long. It's all just pretty amazing." In 1992, the chapter planted its roots as an interest group started by Founding President Ron Magno who wanted to bring the fraternity of his brother, Mike Magno, to his campus. Soon after, this group became 25 members strong and was colonized on February 28, 1992. In its early stages, as with all fraternities, the group ran into some difficulties. Ted Sargent, a Resident Director in a residence hall on campus, was pivotal in solving these problems. He made the chapter a subcommittee of his dorm council and with that they could now take advantage of facilities not available to them before. Since then, the chapter has grown to be 52 members strong. "I knew that someday we'd get this far, but I did not think that we'd get to this point for a while," Dan Mack said. "We are a close group of guys that have a common interest and love for each other." Another founding father, Kevin C. Lang, said," We have a bond of brotherhood now that is stronger than ever before." Since its beginning, Eta Lambda has made a strong commitment to PUSH America, raising over $4,300 since its start. This year's PUSH Chair Shawn Durringan is excited about the progress the chapter is making. "We've tripled our totals from last year. I'm really happy about that." The chapter has set long term goals for themselves. According to Magno, "When I come back in 10 years, I'd like to see that the members have not lost touch with the traditions and ideals that the founders set forth . I want to see the associate members in front of us work hard for wha t we have. What is ahead for the Eta Lambda Chapter? Hedler puts it best. "It's not the end of anything, but the beginning of everything." Congratulations Eta Lambda Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi- SUNY Brockport.

The gentlemen of Alpha Gamma

Alpha Gamma-Oklahoma Nine months after Alpha Gamma received word that the chapter would be re-organized, The University of Oklahoma was introduced to the 40 new Brothers of Pi Kappa Phi--five initiated brothers and 35 new associa tes. During those nine months, the 18 original men recruited by former Senior Leadership Consultant Dave Simas started ou t on their quest bound together by the dream that they wanted to be the best chapter on campus. The Greek System at the university, both powerful and rich in tradition, became the hunting ground for men that wanted something more than the traditional fraternity experience. Led by initiated brother and Archon Matt Pena, the Alpha Gamma Associa te Chapter set out to change all of the the negative stereotypes about fraternities and began to build a fraternity from the ground up. Alpha Gamma quickly gained the reputation of gentlemanly behavior as it showed the campus that it was something new and different. They paired up with the women of Delta Delta Delta sorority and placed second in Homecoming. They raised over seven hundred dollars during a three day scaffold si t for PUSH America. They placed second wi th the women of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority during Greek Week and they branched out into campus organizations and honor societies, making their presence known on campus while effecting change. Other chapters realized that Pi Kappa Phi was here to stay and was changing the way students looked at fra ternities. On the evening of April 23, 1993, the Ritual of Initiation was performed by the Brothers of Gamma Upsilon Chapter at Oklahoma State University, and Alpha Psi Chapter at Indiana University. The dreams the brothers had once talked about were beginning to come true. The following evening in Oklahoma City, Chartering Officer Harry Caldwell (National Secretary), along with Assistant Chartering Officers Billy Jacobs (Area VII Governor) and David Simas, presented the chapter wi th their original ch arter from 1923. Also in attendance were Jason Dodd, Director of Chapter Services, Mark Perrin, Newly appointed Assistant Executive Director, along with university officials, family and friends as Alpha Gamma received its charter signifying the end of a rough road for the chapter and a future filled with dreams and success. The chapter would like to especially thank their Graduate Advisor, Brook Bollinger, and all of the area alu mni and staff at the Administrative Office who helped make their dreams a reality. The future holds many great things for Alpha Gamma, and the men have agreed to accept the challenge to become the best they can be. Going back to the quote from the White Diamond, "A house, a grip, a badge, a song, an emblem- these things do not make a fraterni ty. It is the unseen things-friendship, brotherhood, character, honor, courage, ideals-these make the fraternity and the man.


Beta Lambda-Tampa Pi Kappa Phi's Beta Lambda chapter at Florida's University of Tampa was reissued its charter on March 20, 1993. Beta Lambda, the oldest fraternity on the UT campus, lost its charter in the fall of 1991; the re-chartering process was started the following spring. In the spring of 1991, David Simas was sent to Tampa to commence the re-chartering process. With the help of Beta Lambda's then most recent Archon Perry Monastero and brothers AI Francesco, Eric Stapfer and Chuck Cordero, Simas hand-picked new members from the UT student body. These new members continued on to make up Beta Lambda's executive board in the fall of 1992 and included fall Archon San dip Sahota, Matt Gerdes, Joe Wessel, Jason Dominic, Chris Mack, Doug Tower, and Mike Pavone. During the fall of 1992, the Beta Lambda Associate Chapter succeeded in doubling its numbers with the largest associate member class of any fraternity or sorority on campus. The group dedicated the fall semester to orienting themselves as a group, taking priority in molding their brotherhood so they would be prepared to enter Pi Kappa Phi as a strong chapter. Having established a great sense of brotherhood, the sole efforts of the associate chapter under Archon Joe Wessel were to re-earn the chapter's charter. Through a strong group effort and the help and support of National Chaplain J. Patrick Figley, the task was accomplished. On the weekend of March 20, 1993, Dr. Figley served as the Chartering Officer in the re-installation ceremony of Beta Lambda. Mark Timmes served as the Assistant Chartering Officer. Emerson Linney, Director of Business Affairs, also assisted in the weekend's endeavors. The new chapter was initiated by an initiation team from the University of North Florida's Zeta Zeta chapter. Beta Lambda has accomplished its goal of chartering, but has not become complacent in their success. Instead, the chapter is gearing themselves towards becoming an ideal chapter. They have put time and effort into assisting the associate chapter at the University of South Florida, including the planning of a major PUSH America event for the fall of 1993 in conjunction with USF. At UT's annual leadership awards, the chapter received the "Most Improved Fraternity" award, and its past Archon Sandip Sahota received the "Outstanding Senior" award. Beta Lambda intends to continue and maintain its already bright and promising path of excellence.

Epsilon Lambda Brothers celebrate their chartering.

Epsilon LambdaUSC-Spartanburg The Epsilon Lambda Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi, after the chapter was disbanded in 1988, reacquired its charter on the campus of the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg on AprillS, 1993. The chapter was fortunate in its efforts, as the Administrative Office gave the men of the campus a chance for a new start just a mere two years after the charter was revoked . The process began in the summer of 1990 when John Harris, the first Archon of the new chapter, contacted the Administrative Office. As a result, Todd Fields, former Director of Expansion, was sent to spend some time with a small number of men to help with their rush coordination. This commenced the long and arduous road that the loyal men would follow until the criteria were all fulfilled and the chapter was granted its charter. Through all the pitfalls that were before the associate chapter, 33 faithful were initiated after taking their written exams on the night of the 15th of April and the oral exams on Aprill6. The written exams were administered by Frank Wrenn, Director of Communications, and Emerson Linney, Director of Business Affairs. Oral examinations were given by Jerry T. Brewer, National Vice President and Arthur J. Quicken ton, Area Governor. Brewer served as the Chartering Officer, while Quickenton served as the Assistant Chartering Officer. "The brothers of Delta Chapter-Furman University and Gamma Rho Chapter-Lander College along with Mike Hinds and the Chartering Officers and staff made the initiation all we had hoped it to be, " said Todd Nelms, Vice Archon. Immediately following the initiation was the chapter installation ceremony as the Chartering Officer and his Assistant made everything official. In attendance at the Initiation Banquet the following day were two of the original founding fathers of the chapter, William Weathers (the first Archon of Epsilon Lambda) and Alan Wood. "This chapter has some great members and together we will make sure that 'post chartering blues' does not become an issue," said Scott Tripp, the chapter's newest Archon, whose duties officially began once chartering was completed. The chapter has a good start on its campus, being the number one fraternity in grades, membership, and intramurals. The chapter is planning for a good fall rush by ha ving the total number of active initiates to 45 by Christmas break.

Oregon State Alumni Prove Bonds of Brotherhood

Alpha Zeta Alumni

from

1940's gather.

While everyone knows that Pi Kappa Phis are bound to one another by an oath that cannot be broken, some Alpha Zeta-Oregon State Alumni have proven it. . Ten Pi Kapps who were at Oregon State in the early 1940's recently gathered at the home of George W. Blinco. The occasion was the awarding of Golden Legion shingles to three members of the group, Leon Ramsey, Jeremiah Cotter, and Jack Steward. "I think it is remarkable that we have had the pleasure of numerous meetings and functions together over the last fifty years," said Blinco. Pictured are (left to right, front row): Ken Hosler, Jerry Cotter, Ken Hawke, and Dick Luse. Standing are Jack Steward, Leon Ramsey, Jack Schenck, George Blinco, Robert Norlander, and Pat Howland.

I1K<I> Alumnus Spotlight on . .. Dwight Holder Initiated into Beta Chapter at Presbyterian College in 1941, Dwight A. Holder has led a life that makes his Pi Kapp Brothers proud. A native South Carolinian, born and reared in Pickens, South Carolina, Brother Holder has done much for the state that he loves so dearly. At the age of 22, Holder was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives and served two terms. He was instrumental in the creation of the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Commission, and served as its chairman for ten years. He is also a former chairman of the South Carolina Jobs Economic Development Authority and the South Carolina Public Service Authority. As a result of his dedication to the state, Holder has been awarded The Order of the Palmetto, the highest civilian award in the state of South Carolina. After attending Presbyterian College and the University of South Carolina, Holder attended the Harvard School of Business. During World War II, he served as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. Besides his governmental activities in South Carolina, Holder has also owned and operated several businesses in the state, as well as in adjoining states. He currently serves on the Board of Directors ofNationsBank of South Carolina. Along with his various business enterprises, Brother Holder has given his time and talent to various fraternal,

and educational organizations. In addition to the support he has given Pi Kappa Phi over the years, he is also involved with the Shriners, having served as President of the Southeastern Shrine Association encompassing nine Southeastern states and 375,000 members. He is a former trustee of Furman University, North Greenville College, and Limestone College. Brother Holder is an active member of the First Baptist Church. Married to Jessie Mauldin Holder, he has two daughters.


Pi Kappa Phi at Work In the last issue of Star & Lamp, there appeared an article on Parker H. Petit and the Healthdyne Pi Kapps. Since that time, we have discovered that there are also other Pi Kapp Professionals that work together. Pictured below are Lou Messer of Alpha Delta-Washington, Gunnar Schalin of Upsilon-Illinois, and Eric Park of Psi-Cornell. Prior to Park's recent return to Cornell for his Ph.D. in physics with emphasis in fiber optics, all three worked at Teledyne Ryan Electronics in San Diego, a small company of about 200 employees. Messer has been with Teledyne for over thirty years. He is a senior group engineer in the systems engineering department. Schalin, a program administrator, has been with Teledyne for almost 14 years. Ask around in your office and neighborhood. You may be surprised to learn who else is a proud member of Pi Kappa Phi.

Dr. A.J. Strickland, Chairman of the Foundation Trustees, announces the receipt of a bequest from the estate of J. Rodney Harris. Mr Harris, an initiate of Lambda Chapter at the University of Georgia, died earlier this year at age 71. Mr. Harris was a landscape architect in the greater Atlanta area. A great fan of the Georgia Bulldogs, he regularly attended their games. His will also made generous provisions for the University of Georgia, his church, and the Salvation Army. In the words of a close friend, "Rodney Harris was a true Southern gentleman in every sense of the word. He cared deeply about his fellow man and lived his life in an exemplary manner. He will be missed."

1993 Fund Raising

Update The preliminary fund raising results for 1993 are very positive. The Foundation operates on a calendar year basis and through the end of June (six months) students, alumni, and friends have donated $116,347 which is 85% ahead of the $62,867 contribution during the same period in 1992. The reason for the strong showing are new contributors and previous donors increasing the amounts of their gifts. The only reason the Foundation exists is to support the educational programs of the fraternity. This strong showing allows deeper support of these quality programs.

Bennett Scholarships Awarded

LANCE SWEDMARK

These ten members of Alpha Alpha Chapter at Mercer University have been awarded a Robert L. Bennett Scholarship for 1993. Bob Bennett, a former National Chancellor and Mr. PiKappaPhi 1978, was one of the fraternity's most dedicated alumni. Before his death in 1985, Bennett established a scholarship fund which has grown to over $120,000. Income from the corpus is directed to deserving students at his alma mater.

A Great Fraternity Experience Many Pi Kapps know that I am President of ences. (Believe it or not, I played the piano for singing at Vincennes University. V.U. holds Orientation during the first Pi Kapp College.) Today, Pi Kapp College is one of the best leadership the summer months for new Freshman students and has 100-150 students report per day with their parents. In development experiences for an undergraduate college our five-week orientation period, we will have over student. Our fraternity brothers have the opportunity to 3,000 new students come for orientation, advising, and hear experts, experience skill-building activities, and registration. As part of the orientation program, I make share a few days with some of the best brothers of a 25 minute speech which reflects our campus theme for Pi Kappa Phi. If Pi Kapp College were like most educathe coming year and discusses how students can achieve tional conferences, students would be asked to pay a their academic goal. Vincennes University's theme this significant amount of tuition for the instruction they receive. year is "The Miracle About a month Begins With You," ago, I attended an which is appropriate AT&T Executive for all college students Education Center and for fraternities, sororities, and camConference in Palm Springs, California . pus organizations. That conference feaOne of the most tured topics about frequently asked "leadership" and the questions from par"future" which are ents at orientation is "Will joining a fratersimilar to what Pi nity hurt my son's Kapp College offers. AT&T had paid grades?" That type thousands of dollars of question gives me for the speakers and the opportunity to enfor the educational dorse Greek life. I tell parents that joining a fraternity will help their son with activities in which we participated. I thought of Pi Kapp scholarship, leadership development, and provide him College and how our brothers share a high quality with the opportunity for service. I know that is true educational experience at a very reasonable cost. Probably more importantly, Pi Kapp College provides our because I have personally experienced it. At Pi Kapp College, held at the College of Charleston undergraduate brothers with new ideas, the opportuin South Carolina every other August, the officers and nity to share successes with our brothers, and to experirepresentatives of our undergraduate chapters come ence brotherhood in the true sense of the word. I hope Pi Kapps participating in the 1993 Pi Kapp together with strong Pi Kapp spirit to learn about leadership, and are recognized for their achievements. I, too, College experience the same type of excellence which I have experienced the enthusiasm that comes from at- experienced 34 years ago at the first Pi Kapp College. I tending Pi Kapp College. I am proud of the fact that I always look forward to greeting my brothers at Pi Kapp attended the first Pi Kapp College in Sumter, South College where we might sing a little and learn a lot. Also, Carolina, in the Summer of 1959 as a representative of I have a special gift for everyone who attends. My Pi Kapp College brothers will receive the gift of brotherthe Alpha Psi Chapter at Indiana University. As I reflect on my undergraduate experience at Pi hood and a gift from me which they might keep as a Kapp College in 1959, I have to be honest that what Pi memento of a great fraternity experience. Maybe today's Pi Kapp College brothers will look Kapp College is today is certainly different from what I experienced 34 years ago. We stayed in cabins in a state back in 30 years as I have and remember their Pi Kapp park with no air-conditioning. Our group meetings College experience with gratitude. It is because of my were in the screened-in dining room, and there was little enthusiastic support of Greek life that I tell parents of recreational opportunity because water moccasins had students at Vincennes University that the best thing for been sighted in the lake. What was most important is their son is to join a fraternity and to grow in scholarship, that we had the opportunity to meet our brothers from leadership, and service, and if their son is fortunate, he across America and to learn more what Pi Kappa Phi will have a unique fraternity leadership experience like was meant to be. I also remember enthusiastic speakers, Pi Kapp College. Summer 1993 discussion groups, and inspiring brotherhood experi-

The Road to a Charter -Gamma Iota Associate Chapter at LSU

OnAprill9, 1993, thirty-two men took on the challenge of re-colonizing the Gamma Iota Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. Screened by former Director of Expansion Lome LaPorte, the men had to live up to three requirements: each man had to be involved in campus activities, receive a written sorority or faculty recommendation, and have a minimum grade point average of 2.5. The new associate chapter has experienced instant success. Since their April colonization, they have won the Fraternity Hockey Championship and Greek Week. They have a full alumni advisory board, and they co-sponsored Disability Week. They also have the number one grades on campus. Their associate

chapter had the most attendees at last spring's GiveA-PUSH weekend in Texas. With their sights on the chartering record of 67 members, the Gamma Iota Associate Chapter is also beginning new traditions, such as serenades, sorority dinner exchanges in coat and tie, and having nonalcoholic socials with sororities. Furthermore, the associate chapter has decided not to allow its members to wear white diamonds or letters while drinking. To what does this brand new associate chapter owe its success? According to Archon Shawn Haliday, "Our success is due mainly to the fact that we'd rather be different and lead than try to compete with the established chapters and follow."
