Alpha Kappa Lambda Fraternity
Alpha Kappa Lambda was founded on April 22, 1914 by a group of young men attending the University of California, Berkeley. Its birth, however, dates back to 1906 when a group of friends discussed the “need of Christian men for a place to live and study that was within their (financial) means.” Alpha Kappa Lambda teaches men the commitments outlined in the Fraternity’s Ritual are not merely remote ideals, but areas of discipline for daily life. AKLs support, and in turn have the support of, their brothers in living these principles. Through Alpha Kappa Lambda, men with different backgrounds but similar ideals unite with a common purpose: to foster excellence in scholarship, leadership, individual growth, and involvement in community service. AKL is dedicated to “Men of Character Committed to Making A Difference.
