Pi Kappa Phi receives charter

Pi Kappa Phi will receive its charter this weekend after a year at GW. Members will participate in both written and oral tests and are invited to a Chartering Ball Saturday night. At the ball, the chapter will be presented with its charter from the national fraternity as the Theta Zeta chapter of Pi Kappa Phi.

All Greek-letter organization presidents are invited to the chartering event and the 40 Pi Kappa Phi members said they expect a large turnout. Chartering takes place after a colony like Pi Kappa Phi meets a number of requirements including fundraising and membership goals.

“All the guys are really excited,” said fraternity Vice President Mike DiSabatino. “It’s a really cool experience to create your own fraternity and come full circle in just a year.”

Pi Kappa Phi members said they worked as quickly as possible to become eligible for chartering because many of its members were planning on studying abroad next semester, DiSabatino said. The GW chapter’s chartering is the second fastest chartering in Pi Kappa Phi history. Members said GW has been helpful to their growth on campus.

“It’s great that the University has shown us so much support,” DiSabatino said.

Three members of the national headquarters staff, who spent a month recruiting students, colonized the GW chapter in October 2001.
