Theta Gamma chapter officially re-charters at the University at Buffalo

On the 13th of November, 2015, the Theta Gamma chapter of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity officially became a fully functioning chapter at the University at Buffalo. This was a re-charter of the chapter, after it was initially closed in 2001.

Members of Pi Kappa Phi’s national organization, including Timothy S. Hebson, the secretary of Pi Kappa Phi’s national council and Tony Noce, a member of Pi Kappa Phi’s housing board, made the trip up to Buffalo to oversee the chartering process, and to judge if the chapter was qualified to take the final step in becoming a full fledged fraternity.

The chartering process included  written and oral examinations in which the men of Pi Kappa Phi passed with flying colors. All men prepared themselves diligently, and every brother was able to pass the exam with the lowest score being an 85%, a truly impressive accomplishment.

On November 14th, the men celebrated their charter and commitment to the fraternity at the chartering banquet held at Samuel’s Grande Manor in Williamsville, NY. Each brother was accompanied by a date and were able to enjoy a meal with their newly initiated brothers. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their time, as it was a rewarding experience for all of their hard work.

The feat was accomplished by 54 men in all, and took just over a year. Pi Kappa Phi is already one of the biggest fraternities on campus, and is expected to make a big impact on greek life at the University at Buffalo.
