Welcome to the new home of Alpha Iota!
We're extremely proud to present a brand new website, meant to facilitate Graduate involvement and knowledge about the current chapter, increase communication with active members, and last but not least act as an invaluable recruiting tool. In this day and age there is nothing more important for an organization than to have an up to date, functional website, outlining exactly what that organization is about and how to get involved. This is exactly what the Alpha Iota chapter of Phi Gams requires. This website will be a sustainable, long-lasting vehicle for further chapter continuity and unity.
This is a place for graduates to connect with brothers who they may have lost touch with, or haven't seen in years. The connections that form while living at 325 Ash ave. are most certainly not for college days alone, and we'd like to help facilitate this epithet. Attached to this website is a database with over 1,000 Alpha Iota graduates, and an extensive <link> search utility <link> that allows for any graduate to search by graduation year, current listed location, or even just last name.
After finding the contact information of the members in your pledge class that you haven't spoken to in a while, make sure to contact them! It's always a great time to rehash old memories and re-live the glory days with your old college buddies. The reminiscing doesn't have to end there though! Every year we hold Pig Dinner during the spring semester, and there's no better way to renew friendships and reconnect with the house than to register for the event, come out, and celebrate the lifelong impact that Fiji had on life!
