THE OPPORTUNITY TO ESTABLISH A FRATERNITY
Are you that man – or group of men – on your campus who is ready to create a path that will leave a legacy?
Not everyone has the courage or vision to start a chapter of Alpha Kappa Lambda. It requires true leadership, time, and follow-through. Over 100 years ago, 11 men at the University of California- Berkeley had an idea to form the first fraternity on the west coast. Since that time, more than 26,000 members have joined the ranks as “Men of Character Committed to Making a Difference.” The flag of Alpha Kappa Lambda flies high on many campuses. We have laid a path of growth to new campuses through men of high values, high aspirations, and vision. If you have the passion, skills, and desire to start a chapter of Alpha Kappa Lambda on your campus, you have come to the right place.
Starting a new fraternity requires members to put in the work. It is important that as a founding member you choose men that will go through this with you. This section identifies some easy ways to begin this process.
You will want the campus and community to know that Alpha Kappa Lambda is forming on campus. Many times if the message is not planned, it does not start out well. Use this page for ideas on how to positively present your arrival.
To some it may seem easier to just start a local fraternity and not have to pay for a national affiliation. This section identifies why it is so important that you do choose to be part of a national fraternity.
Like membership in almost every organization it costs money to be in a fraternity. This section identifies the national fees associated with the experience. It is important that every new recruit know these numbers before joining.
The most critical support mechanism is the alumni that get involved with your group and the volunteers like faculty that provide support. This page discusses those opportunities.
