FAQ



    What is Rush?

    Rush is the process by which students engage in professional and social settings for the purpose of getting to know chapter members as well as for chapter members to get to know potential new Brothers.

    How can I make the most out of Rush?

    Attend as many events as possible! The more brothers that can recognize you and remember information about you, the better!

    Try not to spend too much time speaking with a particular Brother. It is best to spend about 5-10 minutes with each Brother so that you may get to know others.

    Dress to impress! Make sure you understand the difference between business casual and business professional attire when attending the Rush events.

    Take the time to think about why you are rushing. Do you think that AKPsi is right for you? Are you ready to grow and develop professionally so that you will be more marketable to businesses? Can you see yourself being a part of our chapter?

    What does Alpha Kappa Psi offer its members for professional development?

    Alpha Kappa Psi prides itself on its professionalism. To ensure all members are prepared for the business world, we provide activities like resume critiques, mock interviews, company presentations, business etiquette lessons, networking events, and much more.

    What does it mean to dress casual, business casual, and business professional?

    Casual dress means attire can be everyday wear; however, be sure to remain presentable. Business casual is neat, crisp, and classic. The basics include khaki or dress pants, neatly pressed, and a pressed long-sleeved, buttoned solid shirt or polo for men and a blouse for women. Business professional dress requires both men and women to wear suits.

    Would I be able to join Alpha Kappa Psi if I am in a social sorority or fraternity?

    Yes! Alpha Kappa Psi currently has a healthy mix of members who belong to other Greek organizations and those who do not; however, it is important to realize that Alpha Kappa Psi is a large time commitment, particularly during the pledge period, that cannot be overlooked.

    If I do not get a bid the first time can I rush again?

    Absolutely! We highly encourage everyone to rush again if they do not receive a bid the first time around and truly want to join Alpha Kappa Psi. There is absolutely no penalty for rushing again.

    What kind of people does Alpha Kappa Psi look for?

    Simply put, we are not looking for one type of person. We expect prospective members to be highly motivated, committed, and passionate. We look for an individual’s potential to grow as much as we look at their present qualities.

    What are the formal requirements for joining Alpha Kappa Psi?

    All members are required to maintain a 3.00 GPA or above, be eligible to be members for at least 2 semesters, and have completed the Rush process.

    What is Pledging?

    When you are accepted to pledge for Alpha Kappa Psi, you will take part in a 9-week long pledge process in which your skills are tested and your weaknesses are refined. During this time, you and your pledge class will take part in projects where you will learn the true meaning of Brotherhood, Professionalism and Teamwork.
