4 Reasons KA at UGA Is Not Your Stereotypical FraternityGamma Chapter Is Thriving at a Time When Many Fraternities Are Not.

In a day and age where the headlines are riddled with the accounts of negative happenings in the Greek community, Gamma Chapter is thriving. Comprised of a strong group of undergraduate leaders and backed by an award-winning alumni network, KA at UGA has been working hard embrace “the moral compass for the modern gentleman” and to combat the negative stereotype that surrounds the Greek world today.

Thanks to strong alumni support, Gamma Chapter continues to provide young men with an environment that nurtures leadership, personal development, and other skills necessary for a successful and meaningful college career and life beyond UGA.

1. We have a strong legacy on campus.

Kappa Alpha Order was founded on the UGA campus in 1868 and is recognized as the third-oldest fraternity at the university. The legacy extends into many generations of families who have passed through out Gamma Chapter hallways.

2. We are creating leaders, not distractions.

Thanks to brothers like Sutton Trulock ’13, we are making headlines. It is not because of social media, hazing or suspensions. We are in the headlines because we are leading the way on the UGA campus, across KA and nationwide in our efforts to hold to our core values of reverence, gentility, service, leadership, knowledge, perseverance and excellence. Sutton has been elected to serve on the UGA IFC Executive Board as the vice president of finance. He is one of our undergraduates stepping forward in important leadership positions across campus. Our new president, Grant Harrell, is a finance major and a member of the UGA Finance Society.

Additionally, our undergraduates are excelling academically. Their spring 2015 GPA was 3.30, which was above the all-fraternity, all-men’s and all-undergraduate averages. Of our 138 spring 2015 members, 12 brothers were on the Dean’s List with GPAs of 3.50 or above, and 4 brothers were on the President’s List with perfect 4.0 GPAs.

3. We have one of the best houses at UGA.

755 West Hancock Avenue at Cobb Hill — The KA mansion shines in comparison to other neighboring fraternities, is an attractive living option for our undergraduate brothers and serves as a central gathering place for our alumni during major KA and UGA events. Completed in August 2008, the 20,000 square foot facility boasts a detached recreational and development center and more than an acre of land and parking facilities.

4. We’re making a difference and raising awareness for critical causes.

We maintain our focus on service and philanthropy. This fall, our undergraduates have been involved with Habitat for Humanity in the local Athens area. They will turn their focus to the Dance Marathon in the spring.
