About Nu Alpha Kappa

We were established on February 16, 1989 at San José State University. We were the second chapter established within Nu Alpha Kappa and are therefore known as the Alpha Chapter. Since our establishment, we have recruited 176 members and have 21 current actives. We have expanded as an organization all over California, Nevada, and Colorado. At San Jose State University, campus we are continuously growing and improving in every aspect as an organization and as a family.

Nu Alpha Kappa has 3 pillars. They are academics, brotherhood and culture. We have to remember why we came to a university and that is to get our education. As an organization, we strive for academic excellence and we serve as a support system for one another. Brotherhood, we establish a family away from home especially for the members who are not from San Jose. We help one another in every aspect whether it is school related or not. Lastly, we are a Latino based organization that helps our community. We sponsor schools during the holidays and provide food and gifts for the less fortunate. We also do a variety of other community services in and around the campus which include our annual local high school scholarship and multiple college tours throughout the year.
