The True Pike

 As a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, I have pledged myself 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 pledge…

…To Myself

  • 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

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