The Pi Kappa Phi fraternity announced Thursday that it will expand with a Houston chapter, making it the newest addition to UH Greek life.
Pi Kappa Phi, a national social fraternity founded at the College of Charleston, N.C., in 1904, now counts more than 130 undergraduate chapters and has initiated more than 75,000 members.
In Texas, the fraternity has chapters at Texas A&M, the University of Texas at Arlington, Texas Tech University, Southwest Texas State University and Texas Christian University.
"We are looking for men who want to begin a fresh, new tradition here at Houston and set the standard for fraternal excellence," said Expansion Coordinator Larry Keller.
Keller and Fraternity Leadership Consultant Ben Roman will hold several informational meetings at UH in February. The first is scheduled for Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Caspian Room, UC Underground, followed by another Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. in the same room.
Anyone interested in learning about the new UH chapter is welcome to attend.
