On Wednesday, May 11, 2011, Northwestern President Morton O. Schapiro visited 30 of the brothers at the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house for dinner and a fireside chat. During the fireside, President Schapiro encouraged the brothers to ask questions on any topic they desired. A wide range of topics were discussed, including Evanston housing laws, class offerings, the New England Patriots, new on-campus housing options, contract extensions, and the potential fix of an elevator.
Towards the end of the chat, Schapiro was asked about how the Greek community could improve. He responded with praise of the fraternity’s commitment to service and community building and said, “I only wish there were more of you.”
