On March 17, 1974, the dream of our illustrious founders made its presence on the campus of the predominately White University of Alabama. Eta Chi became the first black, Greek-lettered organization at the Capstone. Starting as an extension of Epsilon Epsilon chapter at nearby Stillman College, we received our charter and name on February 8,1975. The chapter strives to meet the expectations of the fraternity's fundamental purpose Achievement. The first and only black SGA president at The University of Alabama was Cleophus Thomas, a member of Eta Chi. Being a member of the Southern Province, we are one of the few chapters in the Province to have two Guy L. Grant award winners, Cleophus Thomas and Keflyn Reed. Spring 2001 inductee Robert Turner is the very first student to hold the position of executive chief of staff; for the first time in UA SGA history, two chiefs of staff were selected. As the executive chief of staff, he works directly under SGA president Katie Boyd. Such outstanding achievements are why we are the "Glowing Diamond" of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. With the emergence of the Eta Chi chapter, our founder's dream has become a reality.
