4 Welcome! Letter from the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Welcome to the University of Mississippi! I hope you already have noticed that college is a time when you will be asked to make important decisions. Your first choice was your best one yet you made the decision to attend Ole Miss! Now you are faced with another choice; are you interested in joining the Greek-letter community? The University of Mississippi boasts one of the nation s strongest groups of fraternal organizations. Fraternity and sorority members on our campus give their time and talents to local, national, and university sponsored philanthropic events. Greek life at Ole Miss extends beyond service to each member s academic commitment and leadership both inside and outside of the classroom. Each individual organization provides unique opportunities to grow as a student. It may be building your leadership skills, branching out of your comfort zone, or learning how to manage your time as an involved student; any of these examples could be the reason you choose to enhance your collegiate experience by joining a Greek-letter organization. By participating in what Ole Miss has to offer outside of the classroom, whether it is a fraternity, sorority or other student organization, you will enhance your leadership skills, benefit from networking opportunities and open yourself to new experiences. Most importantly, you will be exposed to a more diverse community of individuals and quickly feel a part of the Ole Miss family. Stop and ask yourself where you would like to be after graduation, and then join the student organizations that will help get you there and provide support and encouragement along the way. If there is anything we can do to assist in your time at Ole Miss, please come by our office. Brandi Hephner LaBanc, Ed.D. Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Letter from the Dean of Students Dear Recruit, Welcome to the University of Mississippi! You have made a wise choice to become a part of the Ole Miss family. My hope is that you leave here with your goals accomplished and with the same sense of satisfaction and affection that so many others before you have felt for their alma mater. Your success in college will be based on the choices you make. Each choice has a consequence, and, eventually, these choices will become habits. Good choices spell success. Bad choices foster failure. As you prepare to join the Greek community, you will be presented with choices, whether to join the Greek system and which Greek chapter to join. If you choose to join, you will have to make choices every day about what type of Greek member you will be for your chapter and your university. My hope is that you will make choices influenced by the principles and ideals upon which the Greek system was founded. I encourage you to seek out opportunities to grow and develop academically, spiritually, physically, socially and culturally. Most of all, remember that, at the end of the day when you choose or do not choose, you will be the same person who started the process. Hold on to the values that you bring from home. If you choose not to join, there are numerous opportunities for growth, development and involvement on the Ole Miss campus. Good luck, and please feel free to come by the office of the Dean of Students if we can ever be of assistance to you. Go Rebs! Sparky Reardon Assistant Vice Chancellor/Dean of Students 4

5 Letter from the Assistant Dean of Students for Multicultural Affairs and Volunteer Services Greetings, Welcome to The University of Mississippi (UM) and best wishes to you as you begin your higher education journey. You have joined an amazing community. Your student body is comprised of people from more than 80 countries. Students at UM are consistently reaching amazing academic heights and implementing service projects that make positive impact locally, nationally, and internationally. Enriching academic and extracurricular opportunities are bountiful at your university. You have indeed made an excellent college choice! As you look to pursue membership with a Greek organization at UM, keep in mind that this membership comes with expectations and responsibilities. Should you join the Greek system, your membership will provide you with lifelong friendships and amazing learning opportunities. Make your experiences at UM one s you will always reflect upon fondly. Good luck to you! Valeria Beasley Ross Assistant Dean of Students for Multicultural Affairs and Volunteer Services Letter from the Assistant Dean of Students Welcome to Greek life at The University of Mississippi! For many years Greek Affairs has been a viable part of campus life at the University of Mississippi. Membership in Greek organizations began at Ole Miss in 1850 and it can be one of the most significant experiences for college students. Becoming a member of a Greek letter organization often affords students the opportunity to get involved in many aspects of campus life. Whether it is through academics, friendships, community involvement, athletics, or leadership experiences, joining a Greek organization allows students to become more enriched and better community members. My hope is for your experience here at Ole Miss to be rich and rewarding. Good luck, and best wishes for a wonderful experience. Most sincerely, Scott Wallace Assistant Dean of Students Letter from the Assistant Dean of Students for Student Involvement Dear Ole Miss Student: Welcome to The University of Mississippi. The university holds many opportunities for you to grow both in and out of the classroom. You will learn how to balance your academic and social lives, and gain the skills necessary to be competitive in a global job market. I commend you on taking your first steps toward a great journey to gain those skills: the Greek system. Greek organizations are great ways to develop so many aspects of yourself both professionally and personally. All of our organizations provide different environments and cultures. You may or may not find one that fits you as an individual. Educate yourself on the organizations as much as you can to find the best fit. I encourage you to understand that Greek organizations are just one way on our campus to get involved. I n addition to Greek organizations there are countless ways to plug into the University. Getting involved is different for everyone. It involves being intentional about your time at the University of Mississippi by taking advantage of the opportunities outside the classroom to gain experience, network, build your resume, and develop the skills necessary to be successful when you hit the real world. There are all kinds of ways to get involved like student organizations, Campus Recreation, Student Activities Association, campus jobs, and departmental resources just to name a few. Be intentional about your time here at Ole Miss. Just like with your Greek decision find out what is out there on and off our campus. I am happy to help in any way that I can. Sincerely, J. Coulter Ward Assistant Dean of Students for Student Involvement 5

6 Letter from the Coordinator of Greek Affairs Greetings, and welcome to the University of Mississippi! Participating in the Greek experience during your time at the University of Mississippi provides students with an opportunity to gain valuable life experiences. All councils of Greek Affairs aim to mold leaders and forge transferable skills that will prove instrumental to the future successes of their members. The National Pan-Hellenic Council is one of the councils within the Greek Affairs community. All nine of the recognized NPHC organizations are registered student organizations on this campus. As a member of an NPHC organization, you will have the opportunity to form lifelong friendships. You will work with other students to facilitate an increased awareness and commitment to community needs, and you will strengthen your leadership skills and your identity as a member of the university family. I strongly encourage you to maximize both your classroom and extracurricular experiences, and I hope you will explore how joining a Greek organization can enhance your University of Mississippi undergraduate experience. Best wishes, EJ Edney Coordinator of Greek Affairs Letter from the Coordinator of Greek Affairs Welcome to the University of Mississippi! We are happy you are interested in joining the fraternity and sorority community. Our men and women are committed to high academics, community service, and leadership development, all while maintaining healthy lifestyles, which is expected of their new members as well. Joining a fraternity or sorority is an investment to your future as it s a lifetime commitment. Alumnae/alumni will share they are members of their fraternity or sorority, not I was a member. The lifetime of brotherhood or sisterhood available is a unique advantage in becoming a member of a fraternity or sorority. We encourage you to form your own perspectives, step outside your comfort zone, and experience all that is college. You re about to embark on a transformational journey where in four short years, you ll grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally. We are happy to be a part of your journey!

9 Go Greek! Foundations of Greek Life Lasting Friendships Many students look at college as a time to develop lasting friendships. The fraternity and sorority community offers more than friendship; it offers brotherhood and sisterhood. When you are initiated into a fraternity or sorority, you are exposed to the secret ritual of the organization, a common bond among all members of the chapter. Ritual represents the principles around which the members choose to unite themselves, and it takes friendship to a deeper level. Greek members value their ritual and friendships. Perhaps the only way to fully understand this unique bond is to experience it for yourself! Academic Enrichment Academics are the most important aspect of college, and academic excellence is an ideal of every Greek organization. High academic standards are expected from all fraternity men and sorority women. New members of Greek organizations must achieve at least a 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale to be initiated, however many groups require higher standards. After a student is initiated as a full member, scholarship remains a top priority in fraternity and sorority life, and organizations encourage it through scholarship plans and incentive programs. The numbers speak for themselves! Students involved in fraternities and sororities perform higher academically on average than the students who are not in Greek organizations. Philanthropy and Community Service Greeks at the University of Mississippi regularly go beyond the confines of the university campus to sponsor and participate in philanthropic events. Each organization has a specific service project it supports, and, in total, Greek organization members annually donate more than $300,000 and perform thousands of hours of community service to local and national charities. Commitment to community service is one of the most important qualities all fraternities and sororities expect from their members and alumnae/alumni. Leadership Effective leadership skills are at a premium these days. Through programs sponsored by local chapters, national organizations and the university, Greeks gain valuable leadership experience and have continued on to serve as local, state and national leaders. Although Greeks make up roughly one-third of the University of Mississippi population, they constitute the majority of our student government and organizations. Additionally, Greeks are well-represented in Who s Who, the Hall of Fame and virtually every student honorary on campus. Fraternities or sororities encourage their members to be engaged within their classroom and campus and community organizations so they may develop transferable skills for their future careers. 9

10 Frequently Asked Questions What is the IFC? NPHC? Panhellenic? All three are the governing bodies of the fraternities and sororities at the University of Mississippi affiliated with the NIC, NPC and NPHC. IFC and Panhellenic sponsor formal recruitment for their membership intake, while NPHC groups have Intake. What and when is Intake? Intake is the membership selection process used by the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC). NPHC at the University of Mississippi is made up of nine historically and traditionally African- American fraternities and sororities. Aspiring members of NPHC organizations must attend the NPHC Greek Forum during the semester in which they desire to participate in intake. While the process is different for each organization, all groups do require that students have a certain number of academic and community service hours and a certain GPA. Each group must hold an open interest meeting during a semester in which they intend to conduct intake. Attendance at these meetings is mandatory for aspiring members. Watch the NPHC advertisement board on the lower level of the Union or visit the website at edu/greeks for more information about Greek Forum, interest meetings, or other NPHC events. What and when is Formal Recruitment? Formal Recruitment is the official process to join a fraternity or sorority affiliated with the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) or the North-American Interfraternity Council (NIC). You must be registered with the Greek Life Office to participate and must apply online at Formal Recruitment is October 1 6, The cost is $100 (and will increase to $125 on August 1). Registration ends September 9, 2013 at 11:59 pm. How long does becoming a new member take, and what are the requirements? It varies among all groups, but no new-member period lasts longer than 10 weeks. Most groups will require some mandatory study halls and new-member meetings. All groups also have a one-time pledge and initiation fee. For more information, ask actives during Recruitment/Intake. What about letters of recommendation? For women participating in Panhellenic recruitment, recommendation letters are used to introduce a PNM to the sorority. Recommendation letters are not required by the University of Mississippi, but may be required by the individual sororities. PNMs are encouraged to contact each sorority in regards to their recommendation letter process or visit their local and national websites. An alumna of the sorority can write a letter of recommendation for a PNM and the recommendation letter is sent to the local sorority, not the Greek Affairs office If you do not know alumnae, you may contact your local hometown Alumnae Panhellenic Association for referrals. Further resources include the chapter s national website and the Oxford Alumnae Panhellenic Association, which may be contacted at When requesting recommendation letters, you can include a resume and picture. Letters must be sent to the sorority addresses provided in this guide or on the Greek Affairs website. Letters of recommendation for Alpha Delta Pi may be sent to the Greek Life Affairs at: University of Mississippi Greek Affairs Office Student Union 406 University, MS Letters for other sororities should not be sent to the Greek Affairs Office. It is strongly recommended to send your letters to the sororities by Labor Day weekend More information on obtaining recommendation letters can be found on our website at 10

11 What are the minimum GPAs for the different organizations? IFC Potential New Members who plan to participate in formal fecruitment must have a minimum high school GPA of 2.5 or greater while PNMs with at least 12 hours of college credit must have a minimum college GPA of 2.5 to participate in formal recruitment. NPHC groups require a minimum 2.5 grade-point average at The University of Mississippi to participate in Intake. There is currently no GPA requirement to participate in Panhellenic recruitment set by the University of Mississippi. Even though grade point averages are one characteristic of a PNM, the sorority grade point average to extend a bid is typically a 3.0. Women who have below a 3.0 GPA are advised they have a greater risk of being released by sororities. University of Mississippi Panhellenic has created GPA zones so you may have an idea of the risk you are potentially facing in terms of being released based solely on GPA. Green zone: 3.0+ (low risk) Yellow zone: (significant risk) Red zone: 2.79 and below (high risk) What is an interest meeting? NPHC groups must hold interest meetings where they discuss their national and chapter history, philanthropy and requirements to become a member. For more information on when each group will hold interest meetings, watch the NPHC advertisement boards on the post office level of the Union building or visit the website at NPHC groups must advertise interest meetings at least one week prior to the date of the meetings. What happens if I want to quit after I sign my bid card/ membership agreement? After discussing your decision with the president or advisor of the group, you must come to the Greek Affairs Office to complete a deactivation card. You will need to talk about your financial situation with the organization s treasurer. Anyone joining a fraternity or sorority affiliated with IFC or NPC is prohibited from joining another fraternity for one year. Do I have to attend Convocation, pre-recruitment events, and all the recruitment parties? What if I have to miss?

NPHC promotes interaction through forums, meetings and other media for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions. On May 10, 1930, on the campus of Howard University, in Washington, D.C., the National Pan-Hellenic Council was formed as a permanent organization with the following charter members: Omega Psi Phi and Kappa Alpha Psi fraternities, and Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta and Zeta Phi Beta sororities. In 1931, Alpha Phi Alpha and Phi Beta Sigma fraternities joined the council. Sigma Gamma Rho sorority joined in 1937, and Iota Phi Theta fraternity completed the list of member organizations in The stated purpose and mission of the organization in 1930 was Unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider problems of mutual interest to its member organizations.

15 NPHC ANGELIA 2013 NPHC Council It is my pleasure to welcome each of you to the school year. As the NPHC President and a representative of the new Theta Iota Chapter of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc, I consider it an honor that you have shown interest in our esteemed organizatons. The mission of NPHC is to unify all nine historical African-American Greek Letter Organizations. The purpose of the Greek Forum is to educate you the aspirant on all the active NPHC Organizations at the University of Mississippi. This is a great year for the NPHC. We are celebrating the 51st anniversary of Ole Miss being integrated, 40th Anniversary of the first NPHC Fraternity at the University of Mississippi, and the recent chartering of the last organization making the University of Mississippi the only campus with all nine NPHC organizations fully active. Being a member of Iota Phi Theta and being the President of the NPHC this past year has indeed been a learning experience for me. I will admit being Greek has a lot of responsibilities. It is more to being an Iota man, NUPE, Zeta, or AKA Lady than just strolling outside the Student Union or partying. It is your responsibility to uphold the principles that your respective organization was founded upon once you become a member. Being Greek also means you will be viewed as a leader here at the University of Mississippi. You will have the opportunity to gain a relationship with not just other college peers but with Faculty/Staff members ranging from Chancellor Jones all the way down to custodial members. I once was in your position sitting in the audience listening to representatives speaking on their respective Fraternity/Sorority. My advice to you is to make sure you pay attention and listen to each presentation carefully as that may be a help in a deciding decision. I wish each of you the best on your journey. Kendrick E.

The Greek community here at Ole Miss will offer you opportunities here and beyond. Experience amazing! Paris Crawford, NPHC 2nd Vice President-Standards Chair Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. To encourage honorable achievement in every field of human endeavor is the main objective that our founders left for us to pride ourselves on. Achievement is defined as something done with effort, courage, and skill. As a member of the Lambda Pi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc, it has been instilled in me to achieve. I currently serve as the NPHC Secretary and the Vice Polemarch of my chapter. Through both positions, I have developed leadership qualities that could not have been gained in any other type of organization on this campus. The NPHC is working to build Greek Unity, become more visible at this University, and really make a difference in the local community. The Greek community at the University has so much to offer and is just waiting for more students to take advantage of the opportunity. I encourage you to explore and find what is best for you!

Choosing to become a member of a Greek letter organization can open up numerous chances to execute responsibility, commitment, and form an everlasting bond like none other. Furthermore, it can create networking opportunities and enhance one s overall experience here at the University of Mississippi. Delantric L. Hunt, NPHC 1st Vice President Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc The founders of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., believed in working to make their school, community, country and world better for future generations.

16 NPHC Despite popular belief, it is the innate vision of brotherhood, scholarship, and service that lead true scholars into their academic and social destinies. Being an active member of The Eta Beta Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., it has been affirmed that my mission is to help the college community of Ole Miss progressively move forward into success. As I collaborate with the NPHC as the representative for Phi Beta Sigma here at Ole Miss, our vision as a university will soon be the pillars of a strong healthy society. Ashton L. Boone, NPHC Parliamentarian/Social ChairIota Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.

Jasmine Williams, NPHC Community Service Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.. What to Expect during Intake NPHC organizations recruit new members through a process known as Intake. The groups represented on campus individually will announce and publicize when their Intake will begin. Typically, but not always, Intake takes place in the spring semester. Each group will explain its membership process at the initial interest meeting. The following list is used as a guideline by some NPHC groups for their Intake process: Intake Requirements Forum on August 26 ($20 fee) I was born into Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. My mother is also my soror. I have always admired the variety of personalities and women in the organization.

31 Interfraternity Executive Council Letter from the President of the Interfraternity Executive Council IFC ANGELIA 2013 Welcome to IFC Recruitment, We are excited that you are interested in the IFC recruitment process, and we hope to provide you with a meaningful experience should you choose to participate this fall. The IFC fraternities at the University of Mississippi represent men of strong character. We are dedicated to the principles that define both the university and the chapters of which we are a part. We invite you to get to know us, and we believe that if you get to know us, then you will be intrigued by what you learn. Fraternity men are in positions of leadership. We are in Associated Student Body government, the Student Programming Board and lead various Gabe LaBonia student organizations. Fraternity men are involved. From intramural sports to student alumni groups to language clubs, we represent our chapters in a diverse group of organizations. Fraternity men achieve academically. We are part of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College and find ourselves on the Chancellor s Honor Roll and the Dean s Honor Roll. We are involved in nationally esteemed accounting and pharmacy schools, as well as the Croft Institute for International Studies and Lott Leadership Institute. Fraternity men serve. We all participate in philanthropy events specific to our individual chapters, but we don t stop there. We are participants in community service events all over Oxford, and when it comes time for the university s Big Event, we show up in a big way. Again, we are men of strong character. We strive to achieve in all areas of university and Greek life. We seek to embody all principles of both our university and our chapters.

32 IFC Interfraternity Council Recruitment Letter from the Vice President of Recruitment and the Vice President of Recruitment Advisors Greetings, Sonny Beneke Greek life has long been an integral part of the Ole Miss community. The Greek system at Ole Miss is one of the most respected in the country, and we hope that you decide to become a part of it. The success of our Greek system can be attributed, in large part, to the high number of people who invest countless hours of time and effort into the overall well-being of our community as active members. It is my hope that you will consider Greek life with respect and an open mind. What truly makes fraternities unique is that they have withstood the test of time. Many fraternities have been around since before the Civil War. Those same organizations still share the same ideals, rituals and visions today as their founding fathers did 150 years ago. Currently at Ole Miss, there are 15 active fraternities and two colonies. These chapters all possess different strengths that make them unique. Chapter sizes range from 25 members to more than 200 members. Diversity is something we encourage for our chapters, and we feel that is our greatest strength. One fraternity s strength may be another s weakness, and that Tripp McKemey is why we stress there truly is a home for everyone. It is important that you, as a Potential New Member, approach recruitment with no preconceived notions toward one group or another. When ranking your fraternities during Formal Recruitment, it is vital that you use your experiences and yours alone. As a Potential New Member, the Greek system can be intimidating. I d like to remind you that fraternities are very competitive with one another. Part of this competitiveness carries over into the number of bids each fraternity extends to Potential New Members; as a result, many fraternities limit the bids they give out to those who show interest in their organization. Word to the wise: Even if you know which fraternity you prefer, keep it to yourself. Many Potential New Members approach recruitment with their sights set on one house, only to come up disappointed when a bid isn t extended to them. They then find themselves with no other bids because they vocalized their intentions to only join one organization. So, in short, keep those options open, and you won t be disappointed! The week of Formal Recruitment will be an experience you will never forget. This one week is the best opportunity of the year to meet people and potentially build friendships that last a lifetime. Recruitment counselors are there to guide you and to answer any questions you may have. They can be a valuable resource when used. In closing, relax, be yourself, keep an open mind, and enjoy your week. We are here if you ever need anything, so don t hesitate to contact us! Sincerely, Sonny Beneke Vice President of Recruitment Tripp McKemey Vice President of Recruitment Advisors 32 Interfraternity Council

Founded on the values of lasting brotherhood and personal, academic and professional development, Chi Psi seeks to establish among its Brothers a sense of purpose larger than one s self, cultivated through simple act, conciliation of dispute, and thoughtful awareness of the total needs of others. We began our recolonization efforts in January of Since that time we have recruited a good number of men and have been able to participate in a multitude of activities. We value being true gentlemen and one of our main goals is to become better men. We hope to be able to build a good foundation for Chi Psi in the years to come. Ole Miss St. Anthony Hall, Phi chapter of the fraternity of Delta Psi, is a unique organization established at the University of Mississippi in Delta Psi has undergraduate chapters located at a select group of prestigious campuses such as Yale, UNC-Chapel Hill, Virginia, Princeton and Penn. Because of the strong bonds and dedication of our alumni, the Hall has just reopened after extensive renovation and structural improvements. Delta Psi seeks to enhance the intellectual life of its members through literary endeavors, to foster in its members a spirit of responsibility and service to the community, and to give its members an extended circle of lifelong friends and mentors who will enrich their lives. 36 Interfraternity Council

Alpha Upsilon chapter of KA has maintained a high standard of excellence since its establishment at Ole Miss in The men of Kappa Alpha peruse their fullest potential in scholarship, leadership and friendship with an emphasis on developing a diverse, well-rounded member. Our strong heritage is an inspiration for our bright future, and our gentlemanly ideals of Southern hospitality continue to inspire us to greatness. On Dec. 10, 1869, five friends and brothers met by firelight on a cold, windswept night in Charlottesville, Va., to establish a bond of brotherhood that was dedicated to the goal of learning. This institution of fraternal brotherhood became Kappa Sigma. Years later, this fraternal organization is perpetuating the national tradition of producing great men. Brothers around the nation have become presidential cabinet members, U.S. senators and Heisman Trophy winners. Blending together all aspects of Ole Miss, the Delta Xi chapter of Kappa Sigma has maintained its position of campus leadership as well as its commitment to brotherhood not for a day, an hour or a college term, but for life.

Mississippi Alpha s success can be attributed to the achievement of each member and to the hard work of the fraternity as a whole. This has resulted in the feeling of pride that can be found throughout the chapter. Phi Delta Theta is more than a social group or place where men associate; it is a fraternity that strives to better the individual by encouraging its members to work hard in the spirit of brotherhood toward a common goal. Phi Delta Theta is a fraternity that prepares college men for future success by helping them develop to their full potential. Phi Delta Theta is the fraternity from which its members benefit not only during their college years but also for the rest of their lives. The Mississippi Alpha chapter of Phi Kappa Psi was founded at the University of Mississippi in Phi Kappa Psi was the third fraternity established on the UM campus and has enjoyed a 144-year history at the university. Nationally, Phi Kappa Psi has always been strong. Founded in 1852, it was the first fraternity founded with the intention of becoming a nationwide fraternal organization.

Since its founding in 1969, the Delta Gamma chapter of Phi Kappa Tau has worked hard to uphold these goals. Throughout members years as students at the university, Phi Tau instills in them a sense of pride and provides a strong base for leadership and academic and social accomplishments through examples set by active and alumni members throughout the community. Phi Kappa Theta was established by the merger of two fraternities on April 29, 1959: Phi Kappa and Theta Kappa Phi. It occurred at The Ohio State University with the first chartered chapter of Phi Kappa Theta located at Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina. Phi Kappa Theta is currently the only fraternity in the American Fraternal system that is considered a true merger of two separate Greek letter organizations. Phi Kappa Theta actively develops men to effectively lead and passionately serve their society, Fraternity and God. Phi Kappa Theta celebrates over 120 years of continuous Brotherhood with over 33,000 living alumni and 1,500 collegiate Brothers living our Mission throughout the world.

Box 8227 University, MS National Website: National Founding: 1904 Local Founding: 1927 Recolonization: 2013 Colors: gold and white (blue is auxiliary) Since its founding on March 1, 1868, at the University of Virginia, the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity has enjoyed the honor of being one of the largest fraternities nationwide. Undoubtedly, this popularity must be attributed to the fraternity s highest goals: scholarship, friendship and leadership. Founded at the University of Mississippi in 1927, Gamma Iota chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha has enjoyed a long tradition of fraternal excellence on campus and can boast such local alumni as U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran. We are a close-knit group of friends striving to further each other s goals and ambitions. We help our members reach their full potential, and the bonds established in these years at Ole Miss greatly benefit our brothers for the rest of their lives. This philosophy is evident in our national motto: Once a Pike, always a Pike! In 1927, James Reagan Simms, Jr. from Emory University in Atlanta, GA transferred to the University of Mississippi where he organized the 35th chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. However, in 1949 following the end of World War II and the eminent start of the Korean War, the Pi Kappa Phi chapter at Ole Miss was forced to close. Today, Pi Kappa Phi is reviving the founder s mission of redefining fraternity in the minds of the university, the community, and their families by re-colonizing its Alpha Lambda chapter. Anyone can join a social fraternity, but building your own is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. From budgets to brotherhood, you make the decisions; you set the rules; you start the traditions. And along the way, you ll also build lifelong friendships. Few people leave a lasting impression on their college or university, and even fewer have the chance to truly impact people. However, as a founding father of Pi Kappa Phi at Ole Miss, you ll indelibly leave your mark on campus and influence the lives of men who will follow in your footsteps. 40 Interfraternity Council

Box 936 University, MS National Website: Local Website: National Founding: 1855 Local Founding: 1857 Colors: blue and old gold The Eta chapter of Sigma Chi received its charter in 1857, only nine years after the founding of the University of Mississippi. Eta is one of the oldest and most prestigious chapters of Sigma Chi in the nation. We received the fourth charter granted to a Sigma Chi chapter. We have long been revered as the standard-bearer not only for the South but also for the nation.

Sigma Nu strives to uphold its principles of love, truth and honor through its participation in student government, athletics and numerous honoraries. We place strong emphasis on creating a balance between academics and the athletic, social and spiritual aspects of college life. A close look at Sigma Nu reveals at once that it is a unique organization of young men dedicated to continuing its tradition of strong leadership, high accomplishments and purity in purpose. Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded in 1901 at the University of Richmond. Shortly thereafter, Sig Ep received its national fraternity status and has since grown to become the nation s largest fraternity. With this position comes an extremely rich and diverse network of alumni and members, providing both invaluable professional and social contacts. In maintaining its lofty standards of achievement, Sigma Phi Epsilon continually pursues its doctrine of the balanced man, a concept founded on the ideals of a healthy mind, body and spirit. 42

Since its colonization in October 2009, Sigma Pi has quickly become a leader on campus in community service, philanthropy, academics and campus involvement. With the chartering of the Beta-Mu chapter in April 2011, Sigma Pi is clearly an organization on the rise and well-positioned to develop a rich tradition and history on the Ole Miss campus. Internationally, Sigma Pi was founded in 1897 and boasts more than 130 chapters and colonies across the U.S. and Canada. 43
