A team from Phi Kappa Phi will be converging on campus for five weeks of recruitment and new member development, where they will be looking to assemble a group of men who represent the ideals of CLASS - Character, Leadership, Academics, Sportsmanship and Service.

They will create the constitution and bylaws that govern their organization, determine their social calendar, start their own traditions for the fraternity, leaving a lasting legacy at American University for decades to come," Mark E. Timmes , CEO of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, said in a press release.
The fraternity has already colonized itself in D.C. at the George Washington University in 2002, which recognized their chapter as Chapter of the Year as well as the 2003 Associate Chapter of the Year.
Phi Kappa Phi was founded in Dec.1904 at the College of Charleston in South Carolina and is located on 126 campuses with over 80, 000 initiations since its inception.
