Alpha Kappa Lambda

Alpha Kappa Lambda is a collegiate social Fraternity that exists nationwide, with 44 active chapters and colonies and over 26,000 initiated members. AKΛ's ideals are centered on its five key cornerstones: Judeo-Christian Principles, Leadership, Scholarship, Loyalty, and Self-Support. AKΛ teaches men the commitments outlined in the Fraternity's Ritual which are not merely ideals, but areas of discipline for daily life. All brothers within the Upsilon Chapter seek to epitomize these five ideals in order to truly become Men of Character.

Our brothers are a diverse group of men coming from many states who seek to develop themselves today while working to become tomorrow's strongest leaders. At AKΛ we get the most out of our college experience and have fun doing it.

AKΛ is more than a Fraternity, it is a way of life, where one is provided with countless opportunities to build themselves into the brother and man they want to be.
