PIKE Receives Official Charter


From the 4/13/10 issue of the Brown & White...

Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, known as PIKE, was a fixture at Lehigh for decades until 2001. Now, after a year as a non-residential fraternity, it is returning to the university with an official charter, thanks to the efforts of alumni and current brothers who have worked hard to bring it back.

On April 9, the Lehigh Colony of Pi Kappa Alpha was re-chartered as Pi Kappa Alpha's Gamma Lambda chapter.

PIKE's history dates back to the 1920s. For decades, it was a part of the Greek life structure for which Lehigh is well-known.
