Alpha Rho Chapter of Kappa Alpha Order at West Virginia University

Kappa Alpha Order was founded in 1865, at Washington College, now Washington and Lee University, in Lexington, Virginia. Our chapter, Alpha Rho,  was founded in 1897 on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia. The original chapter house was replaced by the existing modern building but the original traditions of Alpha Rho remain.

When you first wore the badge of KA, you made a powerful statement about who you were and what you believed in. No doubt those memories and experiences have stayed with you and have helped contribute to the man you are today. Whatever it was that first drew you to KA, something spoke to you about the importance of having the Kappa Alpha Order brotherhood, tradition and values in your life -- then, now and forever.
