The Fraternity of St. Anthony Hall was founded in 1847 at Columbia University in New York. As it expanded to many colleges and universities across the East coast, its membership became a group of young men who shared a passion for literature and who supported each other in their undergraduate experience together. Not much has changed since 1847. The fraternity has since gone co-ed (we are proud to be the first formerly all-male fraternity to accept women as sisters), but its membership is still as it was in the early days a group of college students who support each other and learn from each other with a common passion for the literary arts.

In 1983, a group of students at Brown ranging from poets and artists to computer scientists and medical students was granted a charter from the national fraternity because its ideals of mutual support, improvement, and fun appealed to them. The members of the Kappa Chapter have held those beliefs close to their hearts.

Since our founding, we have grown and changed in many different ways. Our events, ranging from open-mic nights and writing workshops to campus-wide parties, have all played an integral part of the literary and social buzz at Brown University. Being a fraternity separate from Greek Council has given us a peculiar reputation on campus, and it might even come as a surprise to some that we're a fraternity at all. Most people just think of us as crazy fun people who throw parties every so often. But behind the parties are the members, a group of dedicated people looking for ways to express ourselves. If you think you want to be a part of that, come to one of our events and get to know us better Our house, King House, is located at 154 Hope Street on the corner of Hope and Benevolent. We hope to see you here!
