Ben Brian '52: KA Provides Foundation for Successful Life

Thank you to Ben Brian ’52 for participating in this Q&A.

Why did you join KA as an undergraduate? 
 I joined because I was rushed and I liked the people in the fraternity, I liked the facilities, everything about it.  I’m a southerner so the Robert E. Lee legend also appealed to me. My father was a KA too, so it was a perfect fit.

Why did you join Kappa Alpha as an undergraduate?

When I came down from Kentucky to start college at Georgia Tech, I didn’t know many students ahead of time.  Several of my father’s friends were KA’s in our town and had written letters of recommendation for me so I went by the House during Rush Week.  My initial plan was to defer joining a fraternity until after I had been in school for a while (not knowing how difficult the classes would be), but I met a couple of Brothers from Kentucky, Rick Muse and Jeff Cunningham, on the first night and felt very comfortable with everyone.

Q & A with Eric Carlson ’74

1. Why did you join the fraternity?
Fortunately, several high school friends from Tampa had KA connections. During rush, I visited several fraternities, but KA stood out as a great group with strong ideals.

Richard Truly ’59

Richard Truly ’59 has kept his feet on the ground and stayed in touch with many Brothers of Kappa Alpha Order. Before coming to Georgia Tech, Richard just assumed that he would join a fraternity because his father was in a fraternity, although at the time, Kappa Alpha Order was not on his mind. When Richard arrived at Georgia Tech, he met up with a good friend, Tom Gurley ’59, and together they went through the rush process.
