Elon University – Pi Kappa Phi – Epsilon Alpha Chapter
The Pi Kappa Phi fraternity was founded at the College of Charleston on December 10th, 1904. Our founders created Pi Kappa Phi with the vision to become leaders by choice in all aspects of our lives. Their vision was to redefine fraternities as a lifelong brotherhood of leaders. What started with 3 men on a winter night in the city of Charleston has become a brotherhood of exemplary leaders of more than 100,000 strong across all parts of the country.
The Epsilon Alpha Chapter was rechartered at Elon University in May of 2001. Our revival brought a new era of Pi Kappa Phi, one that embraces our founders’ ideals of being men of C.L.A.S.S, those of which exemplify character, leadership, achievement, scholarship, and service. Brothers of the Epsilon Alpha chapter work to make a positive impact on Elon’s campus and in the Burlington community every day, whether through our seats held in the Student Government Association, our various philanthropy events through the semester, or through our weekly service trips to public schools in the city of Burlington. Our development as men of C.L.A.S.S. through these activities is what spurred our chapter to become involved with the Frats 4 Family campaign.

It Is Time to Talk About Domestic Violence
Domestic violence is a hushed issue that occurs everywhere around the world. Contrary to popular belief, those who become victims are from all demographics. Currently, it has become a significant issue on college campuses nationwide. It is time that this issue is brought to the forefront of the public’s attention
and becomes an area of focus for alleviating the devastating effects that it causes. We believe that it is time to initiate the discussion of domestic violence.
Through our collaboration with the Frats 4 Family campaign and the Crossroads Sexual Assault Response & Resource Center of Burlington, we hope to initiate a statewide conversation about domestic violence that can lead to the development of resources for those affected in addition to diminishing the occurrence of these malicious acts within our own community. As leaders of our community, we hope to empower others to join the fight against domestic violence.
Crossroads Sexual Assault Response & Resource Center
Our Mission: To reduce sexual violence, child victimization, and their effects through confidential counseling, advocacy, child medical treatment, education, and community awareness for adults and children. Our History: CrossRoads, formerly known as Rape Crisis Alliance of Alamance County, began in 1976 when 15 women gathered with the mission of helping one person. In the 1980’s, the previously all-volunteer group became a United Way agency, and the board of directors hired its first paid staff person to serve as agency director. Additional staff positions including crisis intervention coordinator, community educator, and victim advocate followed over the next few years. In its early years, Rape Crisis Alliance volunteers and staff worked primarily with adult rape victims. With the expansion of services to include children and the increased community education programs, the agency changed its name in 1996 to CrossRoads, reflecting both the expanded services and a solution-oriented approach. During the same year, the agency moved to its current Vaughn Road facility, and these expanded facilities allowed CrossRoads to open a Children’s Advocacy Center, which was nationally certified by the National Children’s Alliance in 1996.
