Presbyterian College’s Pi Kappa Phi receives Most Improved GPA Award


Over the College’s winter break, the executive council for the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity chapter on campus traveled to the fraternity’s Pi Kapp College for Chapter Officers hosted in Charlotte, N.C. While there, the men received the award for Most Improved GPA. Over the 2015-2016 year, the brothers were able to improve from a 2.6 to a 3.14 GPA for the chapter.

“One of the things our chapter stands for is our commitment to each other and lifelong brotherhood that we all share,” said Zach Crumlich, archon for the chapter. “I would like to see us receive more recognition here on campus and on the national level. We have the ability to be one of the best chapters in the country, and I can see us next year being one of the best chapters.”

The Pi Kappa Phi chapter at the College is the fraternity’s beta chapter, meaning it is the second chapter ever founded. It is also the longest standing chapter.

“When we received the award, I was shocked,” Crumlich added. “This is one of the first awards we have won on a national level, and I think it tells a lot about how far we have come as a chapter. I hope that we will be able to win more awards and ultimately receive the title of Grand Supreme Chapter.”
