Our Pillars

Nu Alpha Kappa (ΝΑΚ) is a Latino-based fraternity that encompasses and values all cultures.

Often referred to as “NAK”, Nu Alpha Kappa was founded on February 26, 1988 on the campus of California Polytechnic State University, with 26 established chapters across California, Colorado, and Nevada. Nu Alpha Kappa was a founding member of the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO). NAK is currently a member of the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC).

“Xinaco” is a Nahuatl word describing an educated, amiable individual whose personality and charisma transcends and enlightens all cultures and social classes.

Fifteen good friends at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, California established the foundation of NAK as a fraternity; eleven of the friends would become the Founding Fathers.

The founders chose the Greek letters NAK to enunciate the sound of nac in “Xinaco.” This marked the beginning of Nu Alpha Kappa Fraternity, an organization formed on a commitment to “Carnalismo” or Brotherhood, the search for knowledge, and the retention and promotion of culture.


Nu Alpha Kappa Fraternity, Inc is a non profit organization that requires a great amount of funds in order to host events such as: NAKLand (an all children’s carnival), Bone Marrow drives, and other children events. Help us, help others. Thank you!
