Welcome Brothers

What is the Loyal Order?

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.

Launched in 2003, the Loyal Order now has over 3,000 members who have made this commitment. You may have heard the phrase, “Once a KA, always a KA.” The principle purpose of the Loyal Order is to provide you with a way to recommit to a lifetime of brotherhood. Joining the Loyal Order is the best way to stay connected to KA. It also provides you a wonderful opportunity to help shape the future of KA.

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. We believe that the greater the loyalty of a group, the greater the probability the group will achieve its goals, and this is another primary reason the Loyal Order was established.

Who are the Loyal Order?

The Loyal Order is made up of alumni and undergraduates, of all ages, who’ve decided to take advantage of their Kappa Alpha Order membership long after their college years. They include scores of successful men from every walk of life who have added distinction to themselves and Kappa Alpha Order. Among the 3,600+ plus members of the Loyal Order are men like:

  • NFL Super Bowl coach/quarterback Sam Wyche (Iota–Furman ’66),
  • US Army four-star General Jack N. Merritt (Beta Eta–Oklahoma ’49),
