Letter from our Vice President of Recruitment:
I grew up in League City, Texas (south of Houston) and I am working to earn a degree in Political Science with a minor in Economics with the intention of attending law school after graduation.
Before attending OU, I was uncertain about joining Greek Life. I was under the impression that fraternities were reminiscent of the ones portrayed in “Animal House”. However, a few of my friends had suggested rushing Pi Kappa Alpha - which ended up being the best decision I made in college.
During pledgeship, I quickly learned that the fraternity experience doesn’t revolve around destroying our livers. Being a PIKE meant holding ourselves and our brothers to higher standards; striving to excel in academics; and being the most involved on and off campus through organizations to serve the students and people in the OU community. Beyond that, our Chapter has initiated over 2200 brothers, and I know full-well that our extensive alumni network will help me and the current actives secure internships or jobs when needed.
Being a pre-law student law myself, I take academics very seriously. I am strongly considering OU's Law School for a variety of reasons - one of which is that Brother Andrew Coats was the Dean of the OU Law School for many years (the Law School is now named after him). For me, our four pillars (scholarship, leadership, athletics, and gentleman-like behavior) define Beta Omicron and our future.
Simply put, rushing PIKE was the best decision of my life. It has allowed me to grow into a responsible, young adult and has given me countless, fun memories that will last a lifetime. If you're considering rushing, I encourage you to go into college with an open mind. If I were you, I would think the following questions to myself: would my friends and family be proud for me joining this place? or is this a place that will make me a better man at the end of my university years? In conclusion, PIKE is for guys that have a desire to achieve more than they ever have, and to be a better man than they were yesterday.
If you're interested in rushing PIKE, let us know through our "contact" page.
