Community Service Hours For Academic Year:
We encourage SERVICE. We have the ability, the opportunity, and the duty to serve our fellow human beings. Our reward is the satisfaction that comes from serving. One of the best things about being a member of Phi Gamma Delta is the number of opportunities you will have over the next several years to make your brotherhood work for the benefit of those around you. Members of Phi Gamma Delta choose to make service an important part of the fraternity experience.
Service and Philanthropy is something Pi Iota's hold close to our hearts. In the past, Pi Iota Brothers have held events to support and aid our community. Some being the 2016 Ice Bucket Challenge raising $78,000 for ALS in memory of Brother Rubin, Graduate Brothers have also continued to give back to the WPI community, noting Brother Foise's 40 Million Dollar donation to WPI. Service has and always be part of our lives. Mighty Proud!
