Our chapter was established at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville on December 1st, 1883, making us one of the oldest fraternities on campus. Over the course of the past 136 years at UT, Pi chapter has consistently held a strong presence on campus, and has continuously upheld the values that make us gentlemen of the Order.


Today, Pi Chapter is over 150 brothers strong, and is continuing to grow. Brothers of Pi Chapter are involved with many aspects of campus life including IFC, SGA, ROTC, Orientation Leadership, Campus Outreach and many other organizations. For fraternities of our size on campus, we hold one of the highest GPAs out of all fraternities on campus with a 3.27, which shows our chapters commitment to academics. Brothers in our chapter represent a wide range of majors including: supply chain management, biochemistry, architecture, neuroscience, business administration and engineering.

Pi Chapter is also dedicated to being involved in our community. As a chapter, we are constantly volunteering with neighborhood organizations and helping clean up our community that we live in. Kappa Alpha Order’s national philanthropy is the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Our chapter raised over $5,000 for MDA last year, and plan on doubling that this upcoming year.

Whether it is in the classroom, on campus, or in our community, as brothers of Pi Chapter we strive to be the best in everything we do. This ambition has allowed us to win the Ammen Award in 2017 and the Marshall Award in 2010, both of which are given by KA nationals to the top chapters around the country.

There are a lot of fraternities, but there is only one Order.
