ONE WORD. ONE CHOICE
Our origin is distinctive, and our record distinguished. From leading roles in business and government, to education and the arts, Acacians are unique due to the life-changing experience of Acacia.
A VALUES-BASED EXPERIENCE.
Acacia is a non-hazing, non-discriminatory organization. With a motto of Human Service and mission of Together, Building Exceptional Lives, our members enjoy a positive experience. From regular dry social events, intramural athletics, campus events to alumni outings – there is always something exciting to do with your brothers in Acacia.
GREATER SUCCESS IN & AFTER COLLEGE.
Studies by the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) and Gallup Research indicate that men and women in leadership settings are more likely to excel in all areas of well-being: Purpose, Social, Financial, Community, and Physical. Acacia men enjoy greater workplace engagement and feel more prepared for life after college. From specific programs to the very nature of communal living and organizational management, Acacia truly fulfills its vision.
CORNERSTONES: ACACIA’S MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Acacia’s Cornerstones program provides a foundation upon which our members build habits to succeed on campus and in life after college. With a focus on goal-setting and experiential learning, Cornerstones Personal Development Program provides a framework for individual success and personal growth. Cornerstones promotes a combination of guest speakers and presentations that encourage mental, physical, social and spiritual growth.
The Acacia Fraternity Foundation and local awards thousands of dollars of scholarships every year to deserving undergraduate members. Additionally, gifts made by generous donors help support our members in attending International Acacia events like Conclave and the Acacia Leadership Academy.
At Acacia, we understand the value of academics and try to facilitate a studious environment at all times. Academically, our house’s cumulative GPA has often been in the top quartile since 2001.
Brotherhood and the strong bond between our actives is what makes Acacia different from other organizations. Trust, cooperation and respect between every member creates a very comfortable environment to undertake any project or activity.
The social scene at Acacia is extremely active. We typically have monthly events, including our annual Back to School BBQ in the Fall and Night on the Nile Party in April. Two formals are also on the events calendar each semester.
Acacia’s involvement in campus activities and and community service has earned it numerous honors from both K-State and Acacia. Along with our AcaciaClaus philanthropy event held every December, Acacia’s motto of “Human Service” promotes community involvement.
