Nationally, Pi Kappa Phi was founded on December 10th, 1904 at the College of Charleston when seven bold men dared to be different - to be leaders. Over the next one hundred years, Pi Kappa Phi has grown from those seven men and one chapter to over 113,000 members and over 175 active chapters nationwide.
Pi Kappa Phi came to Kansas State University on November 21, 1976 when Jerry Matthews - then-National Director of Development for Pi Kappa Phi - held a leadership lab. Over the following two years, Pi Kappa Phi grew as it worked to earn a charter from the national fraternity. On April 15, 1978, all of the hard work paid off and the Kansas State chapter of Pi Kappa Phi was chartered, becoming the Delta Chi chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. Over the course of the next 20 years, the members were involved in philanthropic efforts in the community as well as leaders in campus organizations and student government. Unfortunately, during the early 2000's, Pi Kappa Phi's membership dwindled and in 2007, the fraternity voluntarily left campus.
Cue the fall of 2013 - the re-colonization of the Delta Chi associate chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. Expansion Consultants Nick Prichodko and C-Brad Middleton recruited 50 men to help bring the Delta Chi chapter back to Kansas State. Although the chapter membership shrunk to 25 men over the course of the winter break, the remaining men were a core group of leaders dedicated to the cause of Pi Kappa Phi. One year after colonizing, on November 8, 2014, the Delta Chi chapter of Pi Kappa Phi was rechartered at 30 members. Since that point, our Fall 2014 homecoming pairing took home first place and we won Alpha Chi Omega's "Dodge Domestic Violence" Dodgeball Tournament.
Over the course of the next three years, we hope to become a chapter of 100 exceptional leaders and provide uncommon opportunities unique to Kansas State through service projects and philanthropic events. Help us reach our goals by referring members and filling out our interest form!
