About Us

Founded at Yale University in 1895, Pi Lambda Phi (Pilam) was the first non-sectarian fraternity in the United States, accepting men of good character without regard to race or religion. Today, Pilam chapters at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada cultivate a brotherhood that promotes academics, community service, philanthropic engagement, leadership development, financial responsibility, social skills, and lifelong relationships. These values and the skills learned through the process help Pilam men succeed in their post-graduate endeavors. All of this is offered to undergraduate members in an environment free from hazing and drug & alcohol abuse.

The Indiana Epsilon Iota Colony of Pi Lambda Phi was founded in the Spring of 2017. After initially building up a strong foundation, our fraternity was hit hard by the Covid-19 Pandemic, and we are currently entering a re-founding stage. We're looking for men of high character and strong leaders to build up a new fraternity following our international values of eliminating prejudice.

The men of Purdue Pilam work tirelessly to make their communities better places. Academics have always been a priority for the brothers, and the Colony has traditionally been one of the most diverse fraternities on campus, accepting brothers from all over the country and the world. Purdue Pilams are dedicated to making Purdue a place free of prejudice.
