From IT to R.I.P: Pi Kappa Alpha
With allegations of hazing after a certain camping trip, PIKE was looked into for hazing
and lost respect from many people. One anonymous person claims These guys went
from top dogs to the bottom of the barrel after their actions towards their pledges.
Peeing on naked pledges in the woods while they were naked is absolutely disgraceful.
