Kappa Alpha Order

2013 Conviviums

Below is an incomplete list of 2013 Conviviums. The tradition is alive and well in the Order. For information on creating your own Convivium (chapter level, regional, chapter alumni, whatever!) click here for the Convivium guide. Conviviums are traditionally held on or around January 19th, but they most certainly can be held throughout the year!

If you have other Conviviums to report, please submit them through this form. Also, please submit any photos from your Conviviums via this form as well. We’ll use in future social media and maybe even The Kappa Alpha Journal.
