Why Rush Alpha Kappa Psi?
As the largest and oldest business fraternity on the University of Illinois campus, we offer you unmatched opportunities. Being the largest means that you can tap a network of hundreds of alumni willing to help you reach your next goal. With over 130 active brothers in the organization, you get the chance to know everybody on a deeper level while establishing a broad base of lasting friendships. Being the oldest business fraternity on campus means you get to be part of a storied tradition.
Alpha Kappa Psi has the resources to allow you to interact one-on-one with business professionals in a variety of different fields and industries. Our sponsors provide us with exclusive company presentations, unique networking opportunities, and the financial support to hold bigger, better events. Many of our members and alumni are currently interning or working for our corporate sponsors.
As the premier business fraternity on campus, Alpha Kappa Psi stresses the development and growth of professionalism for all its members. We start growing our members from their first week as a pledge, with older members acting as mentors to help shape younger pledges into the modern business professionals demanded today. Throughout their semesters in Alpha Kappa Psi, members have many opportunities to grow, such as resume critiques and mock interviews, but they also have the chance to showcase these professional skills with our sponsors. Through exclusive networking sessions such as company presentations and our Commerce Night Out, members are able to have meaningful conversations with company representatives, sometimes leading to internships and full time offers. At the end of their time with Alpha Kappa Psi, every member enters the business world prepared for success.
Being a part of Alpha Kappa Psi means you’re a brother, not a member. We have roughly 130 brothers in our Co-Ed organization. By joining the fraternity, you have a chance to create lasting bonds and friendships that will continue well beyond your college career. Coming into a university as large as the University of Illinois, it is helpful to provide a comfort zone where members can be assured support from their fellow brothers. We hold a variety of brotherhood events, such as barn dance, semi-formal, formal, football tailgates, drive-in movies, intramural sports, impromptu events and more. With a robust social calendar, you’ll always feel involved and have a great network of friends to turn to.
With over 33 committee positions and 6 Executive Board positions, the fraternity places a strong focus on leadership. By joining AKPsi, you’ll be able to take on a leadership role right away within your pledge class. As your college career progresses, more and more opportunities become available to you. These leadership positions teach you intangibles like presiding over a room, commanding a meeting, getting respect from peers, and being an effective and enthusiastic leader. Our brothers have gone on to become leaders across the Illinois campus and within the business world.
Alpha Kappa Psi is constantly seeking opportunities to give back to the Champaign-Urbana community. We mandate that our members achieve a selected amount of community service hours though many members exceed the required amount and view it as a minimum rather than the maximum. We hold a close relationship with the Center for Women in Transition, Times Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Swann Special Care Center and several other community service projects. We hold an array of events throughout each semester including an Corporate Philanthropy event with our sponsors to support several noble causes.
