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.
