Pi Kappa Phi

Kappa Iota - University of Idaho

Exceptional Leaders. Uncommon Opportunities.

August 10 - Charlotte

Today was crew debrief, which I found is really code for take the decals off the vans, and clean the vans. I have to admit it wasn't the most fun, but spending this last day with my friends that I have made this summer was great! 

Kinda sad seeing the vans all naked

Since we were at headquarters I got to visit the museum of Pi Kappa Phi history and saw some really cool stuff!

The Mug Wall, there is a mug from every university that has a Pi Kapp chapter at it. If the mug is right side up the chapter is open, if it is upside down it is closed. When you visit you can write a note and put it in your mug.

The fraternity TKE opened a special chapter for Durward W. Owen, of which he was the only member. This was because he was their insurance agent, but they were not aloud to have an insurance agent who wasn't a member of TKE. Kinda a unique history there.

The fraternity went through almost 2 decades where no new chapters were founded. This was the saying the Durward W. Owen used to get the organization through the tough time.

This is the seminar room the Bruce Rodgers dedicated to Todd Porterfield who died on the Journey of Hope in 2000 and Jason Tirado who suddenly died shortly before beginning his second Journey of Hope.

Mae did have an actual debrief were we discussed with the staff things that could be improved about the trip. It seemed really productive, and I hope that some of our feedback will be applied next year!

As the day drew to a close at the office we went out for our last dinner as a crew. We went to a local pizza place that was really good! After dinner we hung out on the town for a little bit, but ended up turning in kinda early because we have to wrap up debrief tomorrow morning.
