Living at Pennsylvania Kappa

The chapter’s first chapter house was one of the dorms in the Lower Centennial area at Lehigh University. Currently, that dorm is a freshmen dorm. The chapter moved in during the 1998–1999 school year. However, once Beta Theta Pi left campus, Pi Beta Phi moved into their chapter house. This chapter house has 26 bedrooms and between 50 and 60 women live in the house. 

Panhellenic Groups on Campus

Philanthropic Service

The chapter’s main philanthropy event is Pie a Pi Phi, which is held in the spring semester. For this event the women hangout on front lawn and sell whipped cream pies to peers, faculty and students on tours to pie the chapter members on Pi Day.
