Annual Chapter Reports

MIT Pi Kappa


With the wholehearted cooperation of the Mechanical Engineering Department, outstanding students of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology petitioned the National Council of Pi Tau Sigma for a chapter early in 1947. After approval by the Council, the M.LT. Pi Kappa Chapter was formally installed on May 29, 1947, by National Secretary L. J. Bradford with Edward Mikol (Oregon State Omega) assisting.

In addition to the traditional activities, M.LT. Pi Kappa has been active in establishing and carrying out a system of course evaluations for all courses taught by our department. One term, the chapter joined in a campaign to obtain a Mechanical Engineering Commons Room. Another major activity is the exhibits for Open House and as a committee to allocate projects so that service organizations do not overlap in their activity.
