Ike the Pike

As a proud alumni of Pi Kappa Alpha, I was dismayed to find out PIKE nationals is closing down the chapter's charter,after hazing issues suspended the chapter in 2012.

What happened to this once proud fraternity? The first fraternity chartered on EKU's campus in 1968,Pikes enjoyed a robust image on campus for years.While I was a student at EKU in the early 1980's,our proud chapter was one of the top orginizations on campus.One year in 1981,Pikes won the All Sports trophy,won Greek Week and was in the top 3 in GPA.

So what happened? Were the Pikes of 2011-12 good guys? Or were they disrespectful brats? Were the greeks bummed the Pikes got booted or were they happy? Is this goona be a case of a chapter that will resurface on campus and be leaders like some other fraternites have done? Or did the PIKES just become too Animal House and they became too much a joke? Please respond freely,look forward to hearing your comments.

i rolled into eku in 04. they had like 5 dudes in the chapter, all of which were hard drinking tough guys that had a reputation of disrespect. at all sorority events they would show up and make a scene. they picked up a pledge class of 30 guys a few years later. said guys kept up with the tradition. id say that class laid the groundwork for what has become the collapse of the chapter. i remember hearing those idiots scream regularly 'if you aint pike you aint shit." that said is indicative of the quality of the chapter. now if you aint pike you aint shit, then by reason if you are pike then you are shit. therefore pike equals shit. those guys believed in their motto and the chapter fell apart accordingly.

The hundreds or so EKU Pike Alumni probably care.

As a little sister of a pike and me being Greek myself, I think pikes were framed by sigma chi and phi delt. Sigma chi wanted to be the only fraternity on campus so they could get all the sorority letters. But now some sororities can't give out their letters. Phi delt has always had it out for pike ever since my brother came in '07. He said that they were trying to say pikes were throwing water bottles at their pledges which is not true. The pledges were just racing...harmless racing. There was no forcing to run in it all. Pikes were loved by every sorority. I think certain ones got jealous of that.

I was on campus from 01 to 07, wasnt greek myself but was associated with many Pikes. In 01, A+ group of awesome guys. Around 05 and on, bunch of retards. Every member they got was recent Graduates from Madison Central, buddies of the remaining members. It went down hill extremely fast.
