Our History/Mission

When Phi Alpha Kappa began in 1929, the house was comprised of graduate students who were mostly alumni of Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Today, Phi Alpha Kappa exists as one of the oldest fraternities on campus, a testament to the enduring blessing of God. Membership currently ranges from freshmen to third year graduate students.

Phi Alpha Kappa is a fraternity of men who are unified in their desire to walk with God. It is the mission of Phi Alpha Kappa to provide for the needs of these men as they attend college. This includes the provision of a safe and clean living environment, which will serve as their home. More importantly, Phi Alpha Kappa aims to promote the growth of its members, as individuals and members of the fraternity, through a central focus on God.

College is a place where diverse people with unique perspectives come together. Phi Alpha Kappa sees this diversity as strength and seeks to foster in it an attitude of Christian acceptance. Phi Alpha Kappa is a place where members have the freedom to make choices under the loving guidance of their fellow brothers. It is this atmosphere which fosters growth in the members while they assist each other in the pursuit of Godly wisdom.
