A Message for parents,
My name is Reilly Connell and I am the new member educator for the Alpha Kappa chapter of Phi Kappa Sigma at the University of Alabama. Rush is usually a very busy and chaotic time and the decision to join Phi Kappa Sigma was made in a short amount of time compared to his lifetime commitment to Phi Kappa Sigma. Therefore, I would like to give you a little bit more information about what I and the rest of the fraternity stand for.
The Alpha Kappa Chapter is one of thirty-two IFC chapters on-campus but we stand apart in our commitment to one another. Starting with our executive board, we hold each other to a high standard and that starts in the new member education process. The goal of our new member education process is to help acclimate our new members to our ever changing campus by becoming both an upstanding student and member of our Chapter. We introduce our new members to all of our values and objectives, which gravitate around central ideas of trust, honor, respect, knowledge, wisdom, and integrity.
We understand how hard of a transition coming from all around the country to college can be, and we feel that it is our duty to help your sons every step of the way. This begins with connecting with peers through social events and philanthropy, and this is solidified by our commitment to excelling academically.
As executive members of our Fraternity, we promise to help your sons become the best men that they can be in every possible way. We want to point them in the right direction so they can have a fulfilling experience in college and so they can reach their full potentials after they graduate in four short years.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, our President, Spencer Silveus, at email@example.com, or our Vice President, AJ Ellis, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"The fraternity was the best decision my son could have made. The way he has grown throughout his time in college and in the fraternity could not make more proud of him…"
"I was a fraternity man during my time at school. Seeing the way my son has grown from being a Man of Honor with Phi Kappa Sigma and excel as a student really speaks volumes for the brotherhood they have."

"It makes sense to worry about sending your son off to school at what 18 sometimes 17 years old potentially the first breathe of freedom they've really experienced. Parents need to realize that a fraternity isn't a bad idea for new students...”
