August 2015 Alumni Newsletter

The Fall semester is quickly approaching with classes starting on Tuesday, August 25th. Formal Rush begins today August 18th where PIKE will host over 1,000 potential new members throughout the week. Please help us win the first fraternity competition of the year by submitting information of men who you believe to have true PIKE character here.

Q&A: Allan Tomlinson ’53

First TECH PIKE President

Allan J. Tomlinson, a Houston native, received his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from Texas Tech in 1954. After graduation he spent four years in the US. Air Force and then entered the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration where he received an M.B.A. in 1960.

Allan, known for a great sense of humor and a very sharp wit which can impale the unwary in a verbal joust, sat down with one of our young alumni to share stories and give perspective on TTU & Pi Kappa Alpha.

Allan will also be in attendance October 9th and 10th for the Lodge Opening Ceremonies.
