Alpha Kappa Rho
Fraternities?.. Its a nerve cracking... That was my perception when I was in high school.. But when I went to college I start realizing that I am wrong in my perception because the way I observe and look at around most of my classmates, friends and school mates were happy and enjoyed sharing their momentous happenings..
Most often they mentioned their fraternity, but since I am not interested in joining it they don't take efforts to invite me..
Until one day a bundles of young looking men and ladies sitting under a big acacia tree besides our university stage sharing their vision to each other and I'm so glad one of them is my old long lost friend.. And he called me up to joint their rank... I joined them, although I am new in the group but they treat me as their old buddy.. And I found comfortable with them so I started sharing also my own perception.. With out knowing that they are a frat members.. So I feel unease upon knowing that they are members of fraternity but my friend explained to me the real vision and objective of fraternity.. And finally it absorbed to my mind.. So as days goes on with this group I feel happy and protected and if I find difficulties in my studies I can easily reach them and ask some helps and the are very helpful..
Until I decided to join their ranks and undergone initiation.. I thought that since most of them were my close buddies they will not give me the hardest thing to do, but I am wrong the more the closes buddy to me the more they inflict me more hardship.. I am a pledge for more than one month. Doing school janitorial services such as picking pieces of papers in the school ground and so on.
After 45 days finally they give me the final acceptance and this time I shed tears not because of the hardship not because of pain but because I feel that really we are all brothers and sisters.. I feel their love their protection..
That is why until now I have no doubt that I am still in love with this fraternity because this is the only fraternity in the Philippines that shows no distinction to all members regardless of status, sex preference and dialect..
I will always be keep the burning fire alive..
The only fraternity that I've referring to is the ALPHA KAPPA RHO INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN SERVICE FRATERNITY & SORORITY founded august 08, 1973 @ university of santo tomas the oldest university in the Philippines..
I born I live and I die as a great skeptron.. No matter what it takes..
This is where I belong... And so much proud as skeptron.. If one day my children ask what fraternity they must join I am proud to recommend them to join AKRHO...

Being a Skeptron defines various meanings. We are often the most misused, abuse and misunderstood of other fraternities. Yet, we're always under attack from many quarters of the Greek-lettered fraternities. From the extreme right, comes the scathing charge that Skeptrons are visionary, utopia, impractical,
dreamers, and without good common sense. From the extreme left, comes
the accusation that Sk... Eptrons are vacillating, incapable of action, weak, full of doubts, compromisers, and insincere. Skeptrons are proud of their enemies.
Despite all the bitter accusations made against our beloved fraternity; for hurling the bitterest epithest against us, have slandered and denounced us, have ridiculed and lied about us, still Skeptrons exist and flourish throughout the globe.
The Skeptron identity is a fusion of two extremes. We can much on fishballs along a filthty side street while on the way to a five-star hotel to attend a black-a-tie affair. We can easily relate with intellectual elite on the most complex problems of society and at the same time enjoy conversing with a street vendor regarding the same economic problems from the eyes of the poor. We are amused by the plush lifestyle of the elite and at the same time engrossed in the plight of the destitute. We see things not only from one side of the fence. We see both sides of the fence.
This is what makes a Skeptron unique. This is what sets us apart from other
greek-lettered fraternities. This is what gives rise to the Skeptron identity. The only thing matters for a Skeptron is neither cheers nor admiration. It is neither cheers nor humiliation. What matters for a Skeptron is the formation of his own identity as an individual who thinks, acts, and lives according to Alpha Kappa Rho beliefs and doctrines.
This is the Skeptron identity. This is what matters to him; and this is what makes him matter.

What's the big deal if we're number 58 on this list? This is not an official website for the surveys of the fraternities, and how did they come up with this? Did they ask people from luzon, visayas and mindanao about the fraternities? Hell No! The one who made this list is just an insecure member of one of the fraternities listed here, wanting that their fraternity will become superior and that's 100 percent impossible, because the Philippines itself knows that ALPHA KAPPA RHO is NUMBER 1. LONG LIVE SKEPTRONS! - AKP-CEBU.
