Pi Kappa Alpha, Greek Park Circle
The University of Georgia

Pi Kappa Alpha (New House)
145 Greek Park Circle, Athens, Georgia

PI KAPPA ALPHA was founded at the University of Virginia in 1868 and has grown to become the largest national fraternity with 203 active chapters and over 200,000 initiates. The Alpha Mu Chapter at the University of Georgia was founded in 1908, making Pike one of the oldest fraternities on campus.

In 1962 the Pike House was located on Hull Street. At that time, some Pi Kappa Alpha brothers were residing at Mrs. "Mama" Dean's Boarding House at Five Points (formerly the Kappa Sigma house). The Pike House was sold to Mrs. Dean and the Pikes swapped locations with her. Pike brothers remained in the house at Five Points through Spring Quarter 1965. Without a house during the Fall Quarter 1965, brothers held rush in Memorial Hall and showed an artist's rendering of the new house to rushees.

The Pikes moved to 360 South Lumpkin in Winter Quarter 1966. After housing the Chapter for 43 years, the beloved house was demolished in August of 2009. The Pikes relocated to their beautiful new Chapter House in Greek Park Circle off River Road.
