We all have fond memories of our days and years at Penn and at Pi Kappa Alpha. Are your friends, relatives, and acquaintances getting tired of you telling the same stories again and again? Then share them with your fraternity brothers! In anticipation of the upcoming golden (50) anniversary celebration in 2019 of the chapter's move to 3916 Spruce Street, we are seeking anecdotal accounts of your memories and experiences. The best stories may be shared in Slices of Beta Pi and/or at

Do you have loving memories of Hell Weekend (maybe not), rush (there must be someone out there who remembers taking Freshmen to Mc Sorley's Ale House in NYC where the drinking age was still 18), or other Pike activities? Maybe you remember the punch at rush functions made with sherbet and Bubble-Up soda. Think about Initiation, Homecoming, Skimmer (now known as Spring Fling), dinks, life at 3900 Locust Street (Cheesesteak George, anyone?), Dream Girl Formals, chapter meetings, etc.

Share these memories with others who can understand and appreciate them. The Beta Pi Alumni Association has contact information with over 900 Beta Pi alumni who are eager to read your stories and share their own. Send your stories and photos to our alumni relations office at:
