  • A note from the President

    "Welcome to the official website for the Omicron Upsilon chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi at Cornell University. We hope that you will take time to learn about the history of Alpha Kappa Psi, the individual members of our brotherhood, and the goals and vision of our organization.

     

    A business fraternity, and specifically Alpha Kappa Psi, offers you the opportunity to expand your learning outside of the classroom and challenge yourself to make the most of your time at Cornell University. The professional development and network gained from membership in Alpha Kappa Psi opens countless doors for its members, both easing the navigation of professional exploration and recruitment while also promoting on-campus involvement and enabling members to learn from, and ultimately become, campus leaders. As I look back at my experience as a freshman, then allured but intimidated by the concept of a business fraternity, I knew that there were many things I hoped to accomplish in my subsequent three years of school and that Alpha Kappa Psi could help me realize my potential to lead and contribute to the Cornell University community. This organization has been the defining contributor to my drive to take steps out of my comfort zone and explore opportunities and experiences that would not have otherwise been accessible. While the decision to rush a business fraternity is, and should be, a personal one, what sets Alpha Kappa Psi apart is its culture defined by unwavering support and encouragement for each other. The relationships that are developed through Alpha Kappa Psi are formed from a mutual respect and appreciation for the reciprocal nature of the organization, and these relationships extend much further than our time on campus to create powerful bonds that connect different generations of the brotherhood.

     

    I believe that I speak for every member of our organization when I say that membership in Alpha Kappa Psi has afforded me the opportunity to surround myself with some of the most driven, passionate, and intellectually curious students I have come across during my time at Cornell University. The diverse composition of our brotherhood is brought together by a shared desire to hold ourselves to the highest standard of personal and professional success possible, and the supportive nature of this brotherhood has allowed each of us to develop the professional skills and confidence required to pursue our individual and collective goals.

     

    We hope that throughout the process of rushing Alpha Kappa Psi you will learn why we feel so strongly that this organization has the potential to actuate your Cornell University experience and personal success. I look forward to the prospect of meeting you throughout our upcoming rush events and working to further illustrate the transformative nature of Alpha Kappa Psi."
