What is SLAG?
SLAG is an acronym that stands for Scholarship, Leadership, Athletics, and Gentlemanly Qualities. Brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha continuously strive to excel in all four of these categories, while pushing others to excel in them as well. Pi Kappa Alpha looks for prospective members who possess all four qualities, but also provides the tools in order to further build upon these qualities in current members.
