The men of Pi Kappa Alpha have had a great semester. Since last summer, there has been ongoing construction on the chapter house. In the last year our Housing Corporation has remodeled the exterior of the house, the kitchen, parts of the front room, bathrooms, and the chapter room.
The exterior structure of the house has been repainted and the backyard entirely redone. The back deck was restrained, the basketball court was resurfaced, the fence was replaced, and new sod was planted. We also poured new front steps. In the kitchen, the floor was replaced and the brick was painted to increase sanitation. In addition, we installed a milk machine and pot rack. The front room walls were retextured and a built-ins were constructed to enclose our new 55 inch flat screen TV. In the bathrooms, new counter tops, light fixtures, mirrors, flooring and urinals have been installed. The chapter room was completed remodeled, made larger and furnished with tables and chairs for studying. Insulation has also been blown in the walls to make the chapter room a quitter environment for studying.
On November 10 we initiated 11 new exemplary men into our bonds. We also have seven new members going into the start of next semester. This semester we have made it a goal to focus on our scholarship. Raising our GPA is a number one priority for Pi Kappa Alpha. We have done this by enforcing stricter rules for studying on the existing membership and have focused on recruiting men who are self-motivated. Additionally, we are well on track to winning an Orians Chapter Excellence Award this summer from the International Fraternity. The award is bestowed upon chapters who are believed to be in the top 20% of Pi Kappa Alpha chapters in the US and Canada.
