Pi Kappa Phi

Kappa Iota - University of Idaho

Exceptional Leaders. Uncommon Opportunities.

The Birth of Kappa Iota

Since March of 2013, Pi Kappa Phi at the University of Idaho has been working hard to become a fully recognized chapter nationally. At last on April 22, 2016, 39 Gentlemen got initiated into Pi Kappa Phi to become the founding fathers of the now Kappa Iota chapter at the University of Idaho. Our National president Tracy Maddux, Head of Chapter development Chris Aldarelli, Leadership Consultant Evan Camejo, University of Idaho Dean of Students Blaine Eckles, chapter advisor Steven Peterson, and the men of the Theta Iota chapter at Washington State University gave us the necessary tools and helped us reach this milestone. We currently stand at our goal to be a growing chapter on campus and to reach higher ranks in scholarship, philanthropy, and campus involvement.

Connor Jones Graduates


Connor Jones graduated from the college of Art & Architecture with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture.

Connor said that he will miss all of the new friends he has made at the university especially his brother of Pi Kappa Phi. He will also miss the great campus and university faculty.

His proudest moment at the University of Idaho was receiving a honorable mention in the Idaho Concrete Masonry Association architecture design competition during his junior year.

He is excited to see where Pi Kappa Phi will go in the years to come, ad her feels very fortunate to be a part of such a great group of men.

Connor would like next year's seniors to know that they need to work hard, but also make the most out of their last year. He wants everyone to try to experience everything they have aspired to do in college.

Connor is excited to find an internship or job that he will really enjoy now that he has graduated. He also hopes that he will be able to contribute his own ideas in the field of architecture.

His immediate plans are to are to attain a summer internship, and attend the University of Washingon in the fall to work towards a Master's degree in Architecture.

He hope that within 10 years he will become a licensed architect operating his own design firm specializing in high-end sustainable residences.

Inspiring quote: “You are what you repeatedly do every day. If excellence is something you are striving for, then it’s not an accident, it’s a habit”

We wish Connor the very best in his endeavors! He will be missed in our chapter this coming fall, but we know that he has to move on to do bigger and better things.
