Kappa Alpha Order- Gamma Alpha Chapter
A Moral Compass for the Modern Gentleman. REVERENCE- God and Women. Our motto is “Dieu et Les Dames” and reminds each of us that there is a Higher Being in our lives. Just as our founders were in 1865, we are called together to demonstrate our Reverence for God and to cultivate our moral faculties. GENTILITY- Chivalry and Respect for All. The second part of our motto reminds us that the Age of Chivalry idealized woman and honored her. The modern gentleman continues this practice of Gentility, showing respect and humility to all that he encounters on his campus, in his family, in his community, and in his career. KNOWLEDGE- Continuous Lifelong Learning. The mind is immortal, and we are called upon to seek Knowledge and develop our character throughout our lives. Our quest for this lifelong learning is manifested in our academic success, our career achievements, and the positive impact we have on our communities. LEADERSHIP- Development of Character. We are leaders among men. We demonstrate this Leadership by setting the proper example of the modern gentleman and by serving mankind in whatever manner we are called. We demonstrate courage and perseverance as we both lead and follow. BROTHERHOOD- Faithful Until Death. We are bound to each other—for life. We befriend and assist our brothers, especially in times of need. Fratres Usque Ad Aram Fideles. EXCELLENCE- Always Aiming Higher. Our aim is Onward and Upward, and it is in this direction that we continually strive. Through hard work and dedication, we endeavor to achieve this Excellence in all that undertake, with a vision of making the world a better place.
