Pi Alpha Phi is an Asian interest fraternity founded on February 1, 1929 at the University of California, Berkeley by six visionary men. This organization is recognized as the oldest and the nation's first Asian-American Interest Fraternity. Their founding fathers established Pi Alpha Phi on the values of Academic Excellence, Asian-American Awareness, Brotherhood, Leadership, and Philanthropy.
The Xi Chapter was established at the University of Washington on March 22, 2004 by 12 founding fathers. The chartering of Pi Alpha Phi at UW began with the common objective of establishing an organization that would make a profound impact on the campus and develop leaders among its peers, overall bringing a "Tradition of Excellence" to UW. Today, their organization continues to uphold unbreakable brotherhood.
