As I entered Penn State during my first year, I was overwhelmed by the hundreds of organizations welcoming new students. Having grown up in State College, I had always known Penn State would be where I spent my college years and during that time, I received many pieces of advice from Penn State students. One piece of advice that I carried with me as I entered was “make Penn State small”. Now, that may seem like an impossible task at a school with nearly 50,000 students at University Park alone. However, I genuinely believe AKPsi gave me the ability to follow that advice.
As I sat in the Business Building Atrium one day in the fall with a friend, who was already a brother, countless brothers walked up over to say hello. They all shared the same passion for AKPsi and were thrilled to discuss the lifelong impact it had made on their lives. In this moment I knew I wanted to join this community filled with motivation, joy, and inspiring leaders.
The following semester, I found myself attending the Business Fraternity Mixer where I again felt that same sense of community during my conversations with the brothers. Every single conversation was unique as brothers shared their professional and philanthropic endeavors although each shared the commonality: an unwavering dedication to AKPsi.
I will be forever grateful for the months that followed where I too experienced this community full of endless support. I found some of my closest friends, all pursuing various paths, but all sharing the same passion for AKPsi.
The professional development that AKPsi offers is unparalleled. As a Supply Chain major, AKPsi more than prepared me to achieve my goals within the business field. However, although the name implies that we’re here for business students, don’t let that impact your decision to rush. AKPsi is filled with students with a diverse range of majors, all benefiting from the professional development opportunities.
Rushing can be an intimidating process, however, always remember: the brothers are there to help. You only have four years at Penn State, so make the most of your time and surround yourself with individuals that are full of compassion, energy, and ambition.
I truly hope you make the decision to rush AKPsi. It changed my life, and I promise it will change yours.
