Kappa Pi Beta
On the turn of the new millennium, six dedicated men brought forth a new Asian Interest Fraternity. In the Spring of March 16, 2000, Kappa Pi Beta was formed on the campus of Northern Illinois University. The Founders: Renmar Salceda, Phillip Gozun, Christopher Flores, Alfred Gozun, Sean Orquiola, and Soulysak Trichanh decided that a new breed of gentlemen was to be formed. Incorporating all of our Asian traditions, KPiB instill respect and discipline. Their venture in this fraternity is to bring about Midwest Values differing from that of the West and East coasts. Asian Americans are one of the largest minority groups in the Midwest yet have the smallest voice in representation. As brothers of Kappa Pi Beta, they felt it was time that their voice be heard. In 2018, thirteen gentlemen founded the Illinois Colony of Kappa Pi Beta Fraternity, Inc. at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.
