The True Pike

As members of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, we commit ourselves to uphold the values taught in our Ritual and restated in our Vision, Mission, and Creed. The True Pike is committed to a life of caring for others as he cares for himself. In pursuit of that ideal, I reaffirm my commitment...

To Myself

  • to practice academic integrity and strive for academic achievement
  • to meet all of my financial obligations on time
  • to preserve a sound mind and body, rejecting abuse of alcohol or drugs
  • to pursue my career goals zealously, but with integrity
  • to promote brotherly love and kind feeling, nurturing my friendships
  • to dedicate myself to my family, my faith, and pursuit of the truth.

To My Brothers

  • to challenge all brothers to uphold this code and hold accountable those who do not
  • to respect the dignity of all; not to tolerate physical or mental abuse of any human being
  • to seek and fulfill leadership roles and participate energetically in Fraternity activities
  • to encourage my chapter to establish and enforce rigorous academic standards
  • to urge my chapter not to tolerate abuse of alcohol or drugs
  • to actively recruit new members who I believe will uphold the Fraternity's values
  • to participate enthusiastically in an education program to inculcate our values

To My Fraternity

  • to ensure that my conduct at all events and activities reflects Pi Kappa Alpha in a positive light
  • to reach out to brothers beyond my own chapter; and welcome those who reach out to me
  • to participate actively in Fraternity sponsored educational and leadership conferences
  • to volunteer my time as an alumnus to an area chapter or alumni association or to the Fraternity
  • to provide financial support for the Pi Kappa Alpha Foundation
  • to respect the Fraternity’s property and symbols
  • to leave the Fraternity and my chapter better than they were when I arrived

To My Community

  • to protect the health and safety of others
  • to participate in campus activities, and stay involved with my alma mater beyond my graduation
  • to foster good relationships with the University faculty and administration
  • to serve my community through participation in civic organizations and events

Only by so doing, can I fulfill my commitment to Pi Kappa Alpha and be worthy to count myself a True Pike.
