On Sept. 3, the National Fraternity initiated 30 men at the installation of the Kappa Phi chapter at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, IL.
Kappa Phi colonized April 12, 2014. The colony recorded a cumulative 3.08 GPA and was actively involved on campus.
“I’ve never been more proud of anything I’ve done in my life,” said chapter president Virgil Thomas. “I feel absolutely indescribable,” said Matthew McPherson, Lake Forest ’16. “It’s amazing to see the work that our founding fathers put in over the time that we have been a colony. To finally get that charter is a great feeling.”
Several alumni and BOT chairmen were on hand for the ceremony. The chapter now has its sights set high for the future.
“We’ve got a very diverse group of brothers here,” said Kevin Petschow, BOT Chairman. “It’s full of leaders, athletes, academic minded kids — a very broad group of young men.”
“We are not a super large school, but we will be the largest fraternity on campus,” added Mitchell Bartko, Lake Forest ’16. “We are going to be the biggest, the brightest, we are going to be the guiding light for other fraternities on campus.”
