Pigma Sti Home - Wayne Buhrer

*From the pigpens of Manhattan
Where birds from fear don’t fly
Came the mob without direction
Hail oh Pigma Sti

May your glory never dampen
Your deeds, they never die.
And to the frats who can’t explain us
Forever to ask why.

Oh Pigma Sti, oh Pigma Sti
We love you oh so dear
With members such as these,
You have nothing but to fear.

Oh Pigma Sti, oh Pigma Sti
Your teachings will spread far
The only trouble is—
We don’t know what they are.

And when we leave our dear old campus
We’ll raise our banner high
For no other group can claim less honor
Than you oh Pigma Sti

And where we go we’ll teach our brothers
The deeds that we have done
And by the time that we have grandsons
We may have accomplished one.

Oh Pigma Sti, oh Pigma Sti
We love you oh so dear
With members such as these,
You have nothing but to fear.

Oh Pigma Sti, oh Pigma Sti
Your teachings will spread far
The only trouble is—
We don’t know what they are.

room following a hall governing board
meeting, circa 1973.

The men's, independent, social service organization known as Pigma Sti was officially (more or less) founded on September 7, 1972.

 

The purpose of this organization is to promote a special type of brotherhood and fellowship between members and non-members, to achieve personal goals, attains points of satisfaction, live to fullest potential, and never to ignore the needs of our fellow members or those outside the organization who require our services.

 

The charter members lived in the 1st floor, east wing, of Marlatt Hall at Kansas State University. Members were inducted into the organization in a meaningful ceremony conducted at the classy [name redacted]* lounge in downtown Manhattan, KS. Upon induction, certain privileges and responsibilities were bestowed to the member. Each member:

 

  • Shall be proclaimed and accepted in the unorganized and respected organization of Pigma Sti.
  • Shall enjoy all the dubious honor, unpredictable power and disputable status accompanying this hallowed recognition.
  • Shall be able to hold his head high, keep his shoulders back, and have a smile on his face that the world will always admire but probably never understand (or want to).

 

So be it from the beginning to now...and from this day forward!

*Anybody have any idea what the name was?
