OUR

HISTORY

ALPHA KAPPA PSI

Alpha Kappa Psi was founded in 1905 by four New York University students who were driven by a desire for higher education for business students. Since then, the nation’s oldest and largest professional business fraternity is widely recognized as the premier developer of principled business leaders, molding the lives of a network of over 250,000 living members from over 250 chapters across the world.

Through the ideals of the fraternity, members have grown into dynamic roles, including CEOs and chairpersons of some of the world’s most successful organizations, university presidents and chancellors of leading educational institutions, and public servants in the highest offices of the United States federal and state governments.

EPSILON CHAPTER

As the fifth chapter of the Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity, the Epsilon Chapter of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has transformed generations of Illini. Established on April 16, 1913, the Epsilon Chapter has engrained strong values of brotherhood, professionalism and philanthropy to the community in all its 125 active members and 1,500+ alumni.

Founded with an aim to foster professional skill development in tandem with the cultivation of lifelong relationships, the Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi is one of the largest chapters in the world, encompassing leaders from the Gies College of Business, Grainger College of Engineering, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, and more.

PROFESSIONALISM

Alpha Kappa Psi seeks development and professional growth for all its members through exclusive networking sessions, company presentations, and our Commerce Night Out.

From the start of pledgeship, older members serve as mentors to the incoming pledge class and help provide resources on their path of professional development such as workshops, resume critiques and mock interviews. 

 

At the end of their time with Alpha Kappa Psi, every member enters the business world prepared for success.

BROTHERHOOD

Alpha Kappa Psi creates a sense of brotherhood that gives you a home away from home.

With over 120 members ranging from all different majors and backgrounds, each unique member of Alpha Kappa Psi helps foster the strong brotherhood of our chapter.

There are endless opportunities for our members to build lifelong friendships that include pledge families, barn dances, football tailgates, intramural sports, movie nights, and so much more!

Alpha Kappa Psi creates a community of passionate and driven individuals that quickly becomes one family.

 
 

PHILANTHROPY

Alpha Kappa Psi recognizes the importance of philanthropy and has created long lasting traditions within the Champaign-Urbana community, whether it's tutoring elementary students at Stratton Elementary School, helping a retirement center called Heritage Center, arranging food and clothing donations at Salt & Light, or assisting a recreation center called Champaign Urbana Special Recreation Center.

Alongside these weekly opportunities for members to give back, we also go beyond our local reach and support other organizations through service events, striving to make a difference in our community and beyond.
