Pledge Process

Pledgeship is a trial period during which one can determine whether his mode of living is adaptable to that of the Phi Alpha Kappa members. Pledgeship is not membership, but it entails the development of an active interest in the fraternity and its mode of organization and operation.

Pledgeship lasts two semesters, after which a pledge may be voted into full membership. Pledgeship at Phi Alpha Kappa is focused on true brotherhood and integrating the pledges into the house. Though many have impressions of fraternities that involve hazing and humiliation, we accept members based on who they are and what they stand for, not on what they put up with.
