Pi Kappa Phi
On a quiet December evening in 1904 in Charleston, S.C., three friends—Andrew Kroeg, Simon Fogarty and Harry Mixson—made a choice to lead. Those three men chose to start their own fraternity. The three grew to seven; seven grew to eight; eight grew to 11. From the College of Charleston, they spread to nearby Presbyterian in 1907—and then to California in 1909. In just over four years, Pi Kappa Phi had become a truly national fraternity. Over the course of a century, a fraternity with humble beginnings has grown into a brotherhood of more than 120,000 strong. Our mission is to create an uncommon and lifelong brotherhood that develops leaders and encourages service to others for the betterment of our communities. Our vision is to a future where every Pi Kappa Phi embraces his role as a leader, puts service before self and improves the world around him. Our student creed values are common loyalty, personal responsibility, achievement, accountability, campus involvement, responsible citizenship, and lifelong commitment.
