Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity

Epsilon Beta Chapter


Originally the first chartered fraternity on Grand Valley's campus in 1979, the Epsilon Beta Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi has returned to campus with excellence and will be chartering in the Fall of 2018! Nationally, with over 120,000 living alumni, Pi Kappa Phi has strived to enhance the membership of all men through Uncommon Opportunities and is committed to making each individual man an Exceptional Leader of Pi Kappa Phi and in their communities. 

Through these Uncommon Opportunities, our chapter has strived to give each member the opportunity to elevate their goals through common loyalty and community engagement. The Pi Kappa Phi brotherhood and extensive networking have continued to cultivate leaders for the future.

Founded in 1977, Pi Kappa Phi is the only fraternity to own its philanthropy, that being, The Ability Experience. Striving to instill a passion for lifelong service in our fraternity members while helping to empower people living with disabilities, The Ability Experience has continued to remain an unparalleled success in the Greek world. National Events: Journey of Hope, Gear Up Florida, Build America.
