We want to first congratulate you on looking into Greek Life at UNC Charlotte. There are many great fraternities on this campus that offer a variety of opportunities to students. We are different from any other fraternity, being that we are an "Order." This means that we do not try to mold new members into what we believe they should be. Instead, we look for specific qualities that a rushee already possess', and we work together on making those qualities more apparent.
The brothers of Kappa Alpha Order are known as the "Southern Gentlemen" of the fraternity world. Our Motto, "Dieu Et Les Dames," means "To God and Women." We do our best to live by what our spiritual founder, Robert E. Lee, set forth in the early years of our fraternity. That of having a strong respect for God and Women.
We encourage you to go into rush with an open mind, giving each fraternity we rushed an equal chance. We truly enjoy the southern heritage of our fraternity. Unlike any other fraternities, Kappa Alpha has a 100% voting rule. That is, everyone in the fraternity has to believe that you would be an excellent addition to our chapter to receive a bid. This is why we rarely have bids turned down.
We put a large emphasis on serving our community. We work regularly with Habitat for Humanity, a local soup kitchen, and our national philanthropy the Muscular Dystrophy Association. We strive for academic excellence, and being well above the All-Men's Average GPA is our goal each semester. We are very involved in Intramural Sports. Our fraternity not only works hard, we play hard. Every year, we have mixers with numerous themes. We have our annual Cotton Ball semi-formal in the fall and our annual formal, Old South, in the spring. Old South is usually held in Charleston, SC, Savannah, GA, or Nags Head, NC.
The brothers of Kappa Alpha Order cordially invite you to attend any of our scheduled rush events, and we look forward to meeting you.
