2022 is gonna be big.
This will be an historic year for the Pike chapter at ISU, 2112 and Alpha Phi Alumns!

Ben Boden '01 is the new Alumni Association President, bring years of Pike experience.

Preparing 2112 for the future. Sharing community bathrooms and showers, and sleeping with 20 other guys in a cold-air dorm brings back some funny memories for us Alumns. What it doesn't do is help us recruit new, top-tier Pike candidates.
It's 2022. Student housing expectations at ISU have changed. Together, theAlumni Association and House Corporation have developed a plan to address the long-term housing goals for our chapter. A strategy is being developed with Des Moines-based Simonson & Associates Architects and NeumannBros general contractors that we believe is critical to the future of Alpha Phi. The proposed project will include historic preservation of the existing Pike House while updating floor plans and facilities designed for the times, site improvements and more. Many, many details are still being considered and finalized. We are excited to share much more detailed plans to preserve and improve 2112 by late summer.
