Alpha Kappa Lambda

Alpha Kappa Lambda Greek letters

The purpose of Alpha Kappa Lambda at the University of Connecticut can be simply stated as an organization founded to facilitate the opportunity to develop the individual; successful in his career, family and community. In the modern atmosphere of collegiate life, the adherence to familial and righteous values is a challenge that few can accomplish alone. Alpha Kappa Lambda at the University of Connecticut provides an environment conducive to those values, deeply rooted in the Five Ideals that all members come to know: leadership, loyalty, scholarship, self-support, and Judeo-Christian principles.

Message from the Chapter President

Default Profile The Gamma Pi chapter of Alpha Kappa Lambda works hard to encompass a well-rounded collegiate experience and provide lifelong connections between brothers. We pride ourselves on initiating members of whom we believe are of high character and can follow our principles of leadership, scholarship, loyalty, and self-support. Having been a member of AKL since fall of my freshman year, I have been able to see the immense growth of our chapter while attaining friendships for life. As President, I feel fortunate in the ability to lead this group of men and give others the opportunity to become Men of Character.

President: Nick Candow
