Thanks to their alumni chapter, Pi Kappa Phi fraternity is expected to break ground on a new house on campus within the next month.
Wes Breeden, alumni chapter president, said the house will start being built around homecoming this year, and active brothers should be able to begin moving into the house in the fall 2020 semester. The house will be located between the Phi Mu and Tri Sigma houses on Org Row.
Pi Kappa Phi is the oldest fraternity at NSU. Wes Breeden, alumni chapter president, said that ever since the chapter’s re-founding in the spring of 2000, Pi Kappa Phi has had one of the strongest and most active alumni chapters in the country.
“One of the blessings that comes from our history is having many of the greatest alumni of NSU initiate into our chapter,” Breeden said.
Breeden said because of the great experience the alumni brothers had at both NSU and Pi Kappa Phi, the alumni association works diligently to give back to the active brothers.
“The new house is being funded by generous donations from our alumni chapter as well as an on-going capital campaign,” Breeden said.
Paul Bryant, member of Pi Kappa Phi, said he thinks the new house will help future members because they will no longer have to go off campus to get to the house.
Nicholas Olivares, president of Pi Kappa Phi, said the opening of the new house marks a new chapter in which many more opportunities, experiences and memories will be made for generations of Pi Kappa Phis to come.
“Our alumni have worked very hard in order to make this dream a reality for us, and on the behalf of the Beta Omicron chapter we can’t thank them enough,” Olivares said.
