Welcome Brothers

What is the Loyal Order?

Launched in 2003, The Loyal Order is an elite group of alumni and undergraduate KAs committed to the enduring bonds of our brotherhood and to the future success of Kappa Alpha Order.

The Loyal Order helps secure the future of one of the oldest fraternity magazines in the world, The Kappa Alpha Journal, which has been published since 1879. In fact, the Loyal Order’s primary objective is to fully endow The Journal in order to free up more resources for our undergraduate programs.

The motto of the Loyal Order is “Fratres Fideles” or “Brothers Faithful” and expresses the core value of those who’ve made a commitment to the Order’s future. Join The Loyal Order
