On Sunday, October 1, 2023, a group of twenty-two men at The Ohio State University was inducted into Kappa Alpha Order as members awaiting initiation. The ceremony was held on campus in the Great Hall Meeting Room of The Ohio Union.

Collin B. Taylor (Delta Mu–Eastern Kentucky ’96), Commander of Traylor Province, installed the chapter officers and led the Induction Ceremony.

In addition to family, friends, and alumni, Director of College and University Relations Cooper W. Carroll (Delta Kappa–Stephen F. Austin State ’17) was also present.

The group was presented with their provisional certificate issued by Executive Director Larry Stanton Wiese. They are now The Ohio State Provisional Chapter. Once they have completed their chartering requirements, they will petition the Knight Commander to regain their charter and be an active chapter in good standing.

More photos are available on the Order’s Facebook page.

Congratulations to the men who were inducted and those installed as officers of the new chapter.
