This is the first edition of the new Pi Kappa Alpha - Lambda Omega newsletter. We are proud to say that we are reaching out to our alumni in order to foster a better relationship. We want to create a system that allows the active chapter to learn from the alumni and for the alumni to continue their life long commitment to Pi Kappa Alpha. This newsletter will consist of Spring 2016 highlights and a brief look forward to Fall 2016.
This a key semester for the active chapter as a crucial rush approaches because rival chapter TKE was suspended and Alpha Sigma is gaining popularity. Not only will we look to have an incredible pledge class but we will continue to build on our active members with the implementation of the True Pike Experience program from the International Fraternity which focuses on personal and professional development.
Our most recent highlight was the International Fraternity Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. There, the brothers claimed another Scholarship and 100+ Man Chapter award. The Alumni Advisory Board was also recognized as one of the top in the nation among Pi Kappa Alpha Chapters!

We will continue to work to carry on the tradition of winning, excellence and service this year and we are looking for your help and participation.
Are you interested in coming to speak to the chapter, talking about your career or doing mock interviews? Can you attend a BBQ, an O's game or a Alumni Mixer? Look forward to invitations to events like these and come looking to help a chapter who needs its alumni base to progress and learn in ways that we can't on our own.
