The bond of brotherhood established within the walls of Kappa Alpha Order is a bond that will last a lifetime. “KA for Life” is what we call it.


You will hear that from active and alumni brothers alike, and you will see it in the way they treat each other – decades after initiation. We share our lives for only a comparatively brief time on campus, but we build friendships that last forever.


Because of this bond, Brothers are always willing to sacrifice for one another and the advancement of the Order. Once a man becomes a member of Kappa Alpha Order, he is always a part of that brotherhood. When alumni return, no matter how long they have been away, they are immediately recognized as part of our brotherhood.


Quoting Thomas Carlyle, the Kappa Alpha Order believes that “the mystic bond of brotherhood makes all men one.”
