Chapter Report: PiKA in Top 10 of Penn FraternitiesA Strong Commitment to Charity and Social Awareness Inspires Beta Pi Brothers

We are pleased to announce that PiKA was designated a "Silver" chapter in the university's annual accreditation process, meaning that the chapter scored above 70% on measures of chapter well being. This puts PiKA in the top 10 chapters out of 27 on campus.

Beta Pi brothers continue to have a strong commitment to charity, contributing 267 total hours and raising $1,200 for philanthropy projects--including the Mackler 5K and Pie-a-Pike, last year. The ALS Association, Salvation Army, and American Cancer Society benefited from these efforts, and brothers were involved in many other philanthropic events hosted by other Greek chapters.

This year, the chapter has created a Diversity Chair position to encourage internal discussions between and acceptance of individuals who may have different backgrounds, opinions, and values. Our commitment to a diverse and welcoming brotherhood sets us apart from other chapters on campus. We are happy to welcome new members from across the globe, including Burkina Faso, Canada, Argentina, and Greece.

The chapter is also proud to be one of only five on-campus fraternities to complete a required educational program focusing on sexual assault prevention and sexual health. All brothers should be proud of the dedication displayed by Beta Pi's undergraduate members in recognizing the sexual assault and sexual health problems that exist on college campuses, and that they are taking the lead in addressing these problems.

At the house, new flooring was installed in all rooms, and the stair carpeting was refurbished in front of the house.
