“Pi Kappa Phi will redefine fraternity as a lifelong brotherhood of leaders.”
Since 1971, the Delta Alpha chapter has been continually striving towards building better men, achieving academic excellence, and giving back to the Blacksburg community. We are a leading fraternity on campus with over 100 active brothers who are committed to our shared values and beliefs.
"I am incredibly thankful for being a brother of Pi Kappa Phi. I came into college without knowing much about what fraternities actually were outside of the stereotypes. Now that I lead this fraternity's day to day operations I cannot be happier with my decision to rush Pi Kappa Phi."
-Peter Ott, Former Internal Vice Archon
A Lifelong Brotherhood of Leaders
At the heart of fraternity is brotherhood, the lifelong bond that begins during the pledge semester and connects Pi Kapps throughout until old age. This chapter has a thriving brotherhood with numerous events, outings, and alumni events that allow us to come together outside the typical setting. Whether it is celebrating a fraternity holiday, enjoying a cookout in the backyard, or heading out to the mountains for some fresh air, Pi Kapps are always together and always having fun.
"Brotherhood is more than friendship, it means knowing that everyone has each others back and would do anything for you."
-Ryan Boyer, Brotherhood Chairman
"Pi Kapp has given me the chance to become the person I've always wanted to be, and I will always look back on my experience with gratitude and satisfaction"
-Kody Cobb, Delta Alpha Alumni

The History of Pi Kappa Phi and the Delta Alpha Chapter
Pi Kappa Phi's commitment to leadership dates back more than 100 years to our humble roots at the College of Charleston where our founders exemplified leadership in the classroom, on the athletic field, in campus politics and within the community. Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity was foundered to further create leadership opportunities-by men who made the choice to lead. Today, on more than 139 campuses across America, Pi Kappa Phi has broadened its commitment to building men who are leaders by choice.
1904: Charleston, South Carolina
On a quiet December evening in 1904 in Charleston, S.C., three friends—Andrew Kroeg, Simon Fogarty and Harry Mixson—made a choice to lead. Those three men chose to start their own fraternity. The three grew to seven; seven grew to eight; eight grew to 11. From the College of Charleston, they spread to nearby Presbyterian in 1907--and then to California in 1909. In just over four years, Pi Kappa Phi had become a truly national fraternity. Over the course of a century, a fraternity with humble beginnings has grown into a brotherhood of more than 100,000 strong—all because three men made a choice to lead.
May 8, 1971: Blacksburg, Virginia
As fraternities grew to prominence on Virginia Tech's campus in the 1970's, a group of men became the founding fathers of our great chapter. Originally only a handful of members, our chapter has grown into one of the strongest on campus. We now have over 700 alumni! Over the years, the Delta Alpha chapter has experienced numerous changes and transformations, all playing a part in who we are today.
From our humble beginnings, the Delta Alpha chapter has grown into one of the strongest organizations on campus. With over 100 active members, we rank in the top 3 in size out of 28 fraternities on campus. Our brotherhood is made up of students with various academic backgrounds, involvement in other organizations, and plenty of leadership across campus. Joining Pi Kappa Phi is truly the best way to enhance and maximize your college experience.
