Greek LifeCurrent trends shaping the future of Greek life at Penn State

Penn State has been at the center of the debate over the future of Greek life in higher education. With the creation of the Timothy J. Piazza Center for Fraternity and Sorority Research and Reform, the university has made a commitment to leading a national conversation on meaningful reform.

Trends at the chapter level and among alumni associations show a system in flux, working hard to maintain strong connections to Greek life’s founding principles, while finding ways to adapt to new challenges.

THON 2019

Fellow Brothers,

Through the Brotherhood of Phi Kappa Theta, we spend the whole year fundraising and providing support for the Four Diamonds and our THON family through Penn State THON. As you all know THON is the world’s largest run student philanthropy which is taking place on February 15th - 17th this year. THON is the largest impact that the Penn State Greek System has in the community and in the world and it is our honor to be involved representing Phi Kappa Theta.

We’re sending out this email since we are less than one month until the whole fraternity and I celebrate the fight these kids, including our sponsored THON child Ryan Arevalo, put forth in their battle against pediatric cancer. We are in our final fundraising push and would like to ask, as fellow Brothers of Phi Kappa Theta, for any donation that you could spare. Any amount helps to make an impact on families that are supported by the Four Diamonds Foundation. The Four Diamonds ensures that families, like the Arevalo’s, never see a hospital bill during treatment and recovery.

Provided below is the link to our fraternity’s page on our online donation platform, DonorDrive. Donations do qualify for tax credits so feel free to email me back with any questions regarding that. Lastly, thanks for taking your time out of your day to read this, and if you have any further questions regarding what we do/how we do it/or why we do it don’t hesitate to reach out!
