History, Facts, and Information
The Delta Kappa Chapter
During mid-2014, a group of mutual friends wanted to start a new fraternity chapter at San Diego State University. They contacted Pi Kappa Alpha Nationals to inquire upon their vision. Soon enough, National Consultants, Pat Hamel and Chris Ehiogu, flew to San Diego to start the process of establishing a Pi Kappa Alpha colony on campus.
Pat and Chris spent several days interviewing the young men that had expressed interest in their pursuit of a new fraternity. Shortly thereafter, they had chosen the individuals they wanted to form the colony. Soon enough, they had their first goal-oriented meeting. The young men honored their values and vowed to be better and different than all other fraternal organizations on campus.
The colony grew and grew each semester. The success rate proved that something special was going on. It became stronger as they built upon the foundation that had been laid and kept working towards their ultimate goal.
On April 22nd, 2016, the Delta Kappa Chapter was chartered at San Diego State University with 113 new Pikes. The brothers to be were initiated by fellow Pikes from chapters around and across the nation. Many of these young men experienced the greatest day they had ever lived.
In August of 2016, Pi Kappa Alpha finally had a place to call home. 40 brothers moved into the new Chapter House located at Greek Circle across from campus. Blood, sweat, and tears had been put into getting the fraternity to where it was. The Founding Father's work had paid off.
