Kappa Pi Alpha is a two-year-old Christian fraternity, located in a big house vacated several years ago by another fraternity. Eighteen students, both men and women, live there in an "intentional community" with one purpose: to be a blessing to the university.Seriously, what do you think Katie's view of this would be if it wasn't a Christian fraternity? In fact, Spot is almost positive that Katie has written a piece before abhorring co-ed dormitories. Katie doesn't appear to be all that wild about co-education, much less living arrangements.
For now, Kappa Pi's efforts are focused on its first big project -- Bordertown Coffee House, open since January. It is on the fraternity's first floor, and residents live upstairs. "We named it Bordertown because we wanted to create a place where people from all backgrounds can meet, where borders are not an issue," says Brian Kurbis, a manager.
Spotty also has to wonder how good the fraternity memebers will be at refraining from conferring blessings on each other, in spite of intentions! Okay, that was a cheap shot. But still. Hormones are hormones, even in youthful Christians.
