As another Spring Break passes the members of this fraternity did not want to leave each others side. A big group of brothers and students of the university headed down to Daytona Beach. We found ourselves soaking up the sun and making life long memories. Whether it was being on the beach, participating in contests, or even cheering on the Cards in the tournament; we found ways to enjoy our 2015 spring break. Cause we all know Once a Pike, Always a Pike!

 

Raise Red #FTK

As we take a stand for something bigger than ourselves we find a way to enjoy it. Many brothers took their time to participate and make a difference this month. We as a fraternity were able to raise money and donate it to an amazing cause that helps fight for a cure against Pediatric Cancer. I can’t imagine another group of men that are devoted to making a difference in this world then this group of men I get to call my brothers. These moments are the ones you will remember for a lifetime.

 

Cycle for Life

This year’s Cycle for Life was a huge success! We we’re able to raise a good amount of money towards a cure for blood cancers. The Cycle for Life is a stationary cycling event that was founded by the brothers of the Gamma Mu Chapter at the University of New Hampshire. The chapter’s goal is to have all PIKE chapters across the nation support this great cause. This year we had great participation for campus including sororities and fraternities. We hope to have the event even larger for next spring! - See more at: http://www.taylorcycleforlife.org/#sthash.S8YJQgdR.dpuf

Founders Day

March 1, 1868. This was the day that Pi Kappa Alpha was founded at the University of Virginia. We we’re able to get together as brothers and celebrate our founding at Mellwood Art Center here in Louisville. It was awesome to see all the alumni who came out and supported us! This year we had a silent auction along with also giving out some awards. PIKE stands by the acronym S.L.A.G. which stands for Scholars, Leaders, Athletes, and Gentleman. An award was given to the Scholar of the year, the Leader of the year, the Athlete of the year, and the Gentleman of the year. Then the other two awards that were also given out were PIKE of the year and also Alumni of the year.

Once a PIKE, Always a PIKE

This month we wanted to take the time and honor our alumni brother Steven Vanover. We unfortunately had to say our goodbyes to him this past month. He was a very outstanding man who was very hardworking and fun to be around. He passed away this month from a battle with cancer. We ask that you please have his family and friends on your mind, Thank You.
