“Having the opportunity to rush and pledge AKPsi has truly taught me the delicate balance between discipline and fun. As a first-semester freshman, I saw college as a chance to push myself, to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. AKPsi exceeded all my expectations because not only did I learn to go out of my comfort zone, but I learned to thrive in it. Attending workshops, expanding networks, and spending every free time with my pledge class helped me experience college to the fullest and I am so excited for all there is to come!”
-Lucia Lin, Freshman
