I vividly remember the overpowering emotions I initially felt as I began my journey in a school of over ninety thousand students. The swarming senses of uncertainty, doubt, and that longing to find my place amidst a colossal environment were the most evident. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was in desperate need of a tight-knit community: one that I would soon find myself enthralled by as a Brother.
If you told me at the beginning of this school year that I would be involved in any form of Greek Life, I probably would have just laughed. Yet little did I know that in two months, I would find myself in professional attire standing at the Business Fraternity Mixer. With barely any knowledge of the function of a Business Fraternity or Alpha Kappa Psi, my curiosity beckoned me to talk to as many people and fraternities to gauge what these organizations were about. But it really was the conversations I had with the AKPSI Brothers that piqued my interest. I found these discussions to be so naturally genuine and personable. From hearing about professional internships and aspirations to philanthropic initiatives such as THON efforts, I began to realize that every single Brother has their own story. And learning more about their stories made me want to craft my own.
You’ll soon discover the meaningfulness of this supportive environment. I can say with utmost confidence that AKPSI will lead you to find some of your best friends: incredible people who will make you feel like you’ve known them your whole life.
As a Finance major, AKPSI has aided me in becoming one step closer to achieving my professional goals, just as it can for you. But whether or not you are a business major should not hinder your desire to rush. There is a plethora of Brothers who aren’t business majors that continue to reap the same professional benefits that many courses don’t even offer.
Choosing to rush can definitely be a tough decision, but it’s one that comes with so many potential benefits. Our fantastic rush chairs have constructed an opportunity for you to make this choice, and we are all very excited to meet each and every one of you. Choose to rush Alpha Kappa Psi, and you too can be in a community of lifelong friendships that augment your college years and far beyond. You won’t regret it.
