Graduating Brother 6
Concerning the 25th
We have continued to staunchly push for... well... PUSH. It’s
hard work, but a labor of love for us all. Plus, many hands
makes for light work and we’re now sharing the burden of
living up to the lofty ideals of Pi Kappa Phi with a 27 man
chapter. On top of all that, girls actually talk to us... well...
some of use... sometimes. C’est la vie...
Confidence is high and achievement is even higher. Read
ahead to find out more about how good it is to be the Archons
amongst men in the UND Greek Community!

Brothers of Pi Kappa Phi, this is your Fall 2011 issue of the

quite a time) and years have found you as well as they have us

A time of great celebration is fast approaching! In only a couple of months, on December 3rd 2011,
the Zeta Gamma Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi will be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of its founding at the
University of North Dakota. Through the tireless eﬀorts of the men that have made up this Chapter, both
now and in the past, we have reached a lofty height that would have been thought impossible not all that
long ago. Where people once feared the chapter might not see a 300th initiate, we have fought back, and we
now stand prepared to initiate our 400th Brother from this associate class.
I am extremely proud of the accomplishments of the Chapter over the past year. From the construc9on
of two more accessABILITY projects, bringing our total to 9, to the involvement and leadership of several broth‐
ers in Students Today Leaders Forever and the enormous hours of volunteer work it entails…from the Planning of
the 25th Anniversary (possibly the largest social and brotherhood gathering that this Chapter has ever seen!) to
the constant homework sessions of one Brother helping another, and the countless other amazing things that
our Brothers are doing everyday to bePer themselves, their chapter, and their community.
As you can see, a great deal has happened
during my term as the Archon of Zeta Gamma, and
with the con9nued support of you, our
dis9nguished Alumni, the ac9ve Brothers and our
soon to be ini9ated associates, there is no goal we
can’t achieve and no height we can’t reach.
Thank you and I hope to see each and every one of
you at the 25th in December!
In Pi Kappa Phi,
