Why join Alpha Kappa Psi?
As a freshman, motivated but without professional direction, I was lucky enough to tag along with a friend of mine to an AKPsi rush event. Three years later, I have learned that professionalism can mean many things, but for me, the term refers to the unrelenting effort that one puts towards his or her goals. When you are surrounded by so many individuals who embody professionalism in this form, you inevitably grow and succeed alongside them. Ultimately, this is why AKPsi has proven to be so invaluable in my life; my own peers have been just as important of a factor in my successes as the alumni network and diverse professional materials that this organization provides. Whether you are pursuing finance, consulting, or software, I am confident that AKPsi will provide you the universal skills, work ethic, and drive to achieve your own personal success.
However, at the end of the day, it is the people that we meet that shape our college experiences. This organization which was initially intimidating has turned into a family of mine – one that I have shared with my most crushing blows, my greatest triumphs, and my most memorable laughs. Through the pledge process, recruiting throughout college, and travel to Colombia, Japan, Vietnam, and Thailand, I have been inextricably tied to brothers of this organization, and I am proud to say that AKPsi has been the guiding factor in my college experience.
