Provisional Chapter Established at Southern California

On Thursday, September 2, 2021, a group of twenty-five men at the University of Southern California were inducted into Kappa Alpha Order as members awaiting initiation.  Due to extenuating circumstances around COVID-19, the ceremony was held virtually on Zoom.

Neal Province Commander Douglas “Doug” W. Hanisch (Epsilon Tau–Northern Arizona ’98) installed the chapter officers and led the Induction Ceremony with the assistance of Director of Chapter Development Aristeo “Ari” S. Ruiz (Zeta Tau–Austin Peay State ’14), and Associate Director for Chapter Services Gabriel A. “Gabe” Rodriguez (Alpha Iota–Centenary ’16).

Province Commander Hanisch presented the group with their provisional certificate as the University of Southern California Provisional Chapter of Kappa Alpha Order. Once the provisional chapter has completed its chartering requirements, it will be fully restored as the Beta Sigma Chapter.

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