Things All Recent KA Graduates Should Do to Stay Involved

GW Graduates 16You were an undergraduate college student and active member of KA for four (or five) years. You chaired committees, served as an officer, planned parties and mixers, and participated in your favorite sorority’s man pageant philanthropy event, but you just graduated. So, now what?

As you know, Kappa Alpha Order is not a four-year organization; it is a lifetime experience, and your membership does not end with graduation. You may be looking for a job or planning for graduate school. Your priorities and amount of free time will change, but you can still stay involved. Here are some things that all recent grads should do.

1. Stay Connected
Keep in touch by updating your contact information, and there are several easy ways to do it. All KAs initiated after 2009 already have a goKA account (this is how you paid your chapter dues through OmegaFi). Visit KappaAlphaOrder.org and click “Sign In” on the top bar to access your account and update your information in real time. You can also fill out the form on KappaAlphaOrder.org/Connect.

2. Join a Local Alumni Chapter
Baseball 3Meet and get to know alumni in your area by joining an alumni chapter. Most meet on a monthly basis with luncheons, happy hours, and fun activities like skeet shoot, golf outings and sporting events. With dozens of recognized KA alumni chapters, there is sure to be one in your area. Visit the current list of alumni chapters here.

3. Recommend New Members
Chances are you will know of a young man in or headed to college. If he has the potential to be a KA, recommend him for membership. Submit his information through kappaalphaorder.org/connect/recommend. According to Kappa Alpha Order Law, undergraduate chapters are REQUIRED to contact and investigate any man who is recommended for membership by an KA alumnus.

4. Give Back
If you have attended Province Council, Emerging Leaders Academy, or Number I’s Leadership Institute, then the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation has impacted your undergraduate experience. There are many ways to give back to the KAOEF from becoming a member of the Loyal Order or signing up for ForeverKA. The KAOEF also provides thousands of dollars worth of scholarships to undergraduate and graduate KA members and funds the E. Fleming Mason Memorial Internship Program in Washington D.C.

5. Join the KA LinkedIn Group
If you’re looking for a new job or wanting to connect with KA alumni in your field, join the Kappa Alpha Order (Official) LinkedIn Group. You never know what connections or opportunities may unfold.
