Alpha Kappa Psi

akpsi

Alpha Kappa Psi is recognized as the premier developer of principled business leaders. We are a co-ed business fraternity. As members of the Alpha Omega chapter at Kansas State University we build a better future by developing the business students of today into the business leaders of tomorrow.
 
Members of Alpha Omega are continuously building their skills in professional development, networking, and education. We strive to provide the best environment for enhancing the business students of our chapter's professional experience through our newly implemented Business Plan perspective. What this means is that we take what we have learned in the classroom and apply it to real life business situations so that our students are ready to take on the world when they graduate.

Requirements for Membership
 
You must have one semester of college completed, have an interest in Business, and have a GPA of 2.5 or higher. You must attend all required meetings and fulfill community service and fundraising requirements.

To become a member of Alpha Kappa Psi, students must first apply for and be admitted into a six-week pledge process in which information about the organization is learned.  After this six-week process, new members are inducted into the fraternity and can begin to attend chapter meetings.  There is a fee for the pledge process that covers the cost of materials.  Once a student becomes a member, dues are charged each semester.  Those interested in joining Alpha Kappa Psi should contact the faculty advisor or president, whose names and contact information are shown on this page.
Meeting Times
Alpha Beta Psi meetings are for members only. Please contact Blair Kocher (brkocher@ksu.edu) for more information about becoming a member.

What is the Alpha Kappa Psi Creed?

Alpha Kappa Psi recognizes that
We live in deeds, not years;
In thought, not breath;
In service, not in figures on the dial.
We count time by heart throbs,
When they beat for God, for man, for duty.
He lives most who thinks most,
Is noblest, acts the best.
