Our Chapter Advisor
Alpha Kappa is very blessed to have an effective and accredited, model chapter advisor, Dr. Chris Ramsay. Dr. Ramsay has served the Alpha Kappa Chapter as chapter advisor since 1994, being initiated in September 1990. During this time, he has been an extremely invaluable asset not only to the Chapter, but to the other three Alpha Kappa entities as well.
Dr. Ramsay serves many functions in a typical day. He is a volunteer professor at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T); founder, owner, and operator of Ramsay Scientific, Inc; and the chapter advisor to Alpha Kappa. For a typical person, accomplishing any one of these positions would correlate to personal success. However, Chris strives for the greater ideals established by our fraternity and gives extensively to his alma mater and Fraternity as well. Chris is also very involved with the Rolla community, supporting numerous organizations in the Rolla school system, the Ozark Actor’s Theatre, and his local church, just to name a few. Chris is able to do these great things all while supporting and raising a family with his wife and two daughters. It is truly unbelievable how one man manages to do so much.
The growth and prosperity of the Alpha Kappa Chapter has been tremendous in the past ten years, much of which would not have been possible without Dr. Ramsay. Chris has been able to booster such strong alumni support that has propelled Alpha Kappa to the top of Pi Kappa Alpha in terms of alumni relations. Chris has been able to coordinate and develop the alumni base to help Alpha Kappa gain a new Chapter House and a new addition to the Chapter House. His work has also allowed Alpha Kappa to develop the Educational Foundation it has, which has successfully completed a Capital Campaign to raise over 1.5 million dollars as well as give out over $60,000 per year in scholarships to undergraduates of Alpha Kappa. In addition to this, the attendance from alumni at events such as Homecoming and Founders’ Day can be proof that Chris has developed great relationships with all alumni from his advising as well as events such as the Chapter House Dedication and Centennial Celebration, which gives alumni even more of an incentive to return to Alpha Kappa. The added benefits that the Chapter receives from terrific alumni contributions would not be realized if it were not for a great Chapter Advisor such as Chris Ramsay.
