Re-founding Class Initiated — Pi Lam is Back!

Refounding brothers
Fall 2009 Alpha Class

A bone-chilling day in December 2009 saw the initiation of 14 brothers into Pi Lambda Phi, officially signifying the return of the PA Alpha Delta chapter to Temple. For the fall 2009 class, freezing their orbs off in a barn* in Montgomery County was a small price to pay to be known as a “refounding father” of one of the most prominent Pi Lam chapters in the fraternity.

While this is a new era for Pi Lam, many things remain the same. Like the classes before them, the newest brothers are a diverse bunch. But unlike their “lunkhead” predecessors, these guys are pretty smart, boasting a 3.06 GPA.

In the past, staying off of double secret probation was the sign of a successful semester. These guys are setting their sites just a tad higher. Among their spring 2010 goals:

  • Raise $1,500 through Philanthropy
  • Rush 20 new quality members
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.3
  • Acquire housing for the chapter

Join us at the Kovner Banquet on March 26 to congratulate the refounding fathers face to face, and celebrate the resurgence of the PA Alpha Delta chapter.
