SPRING RUSH 2019
A Note from VP of Membership
Dear Prospective Rushee,
Thank you for taking the first steps in learning about and potentially joining our brotherhood. The entire Rho Chi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi welcomes and looks forward to meeting you during Fall Rush 2018. Recruitment week is an amazing opportunity to learn more about Alpha Kappa Psi and what we can offer you during your years at Chapman University.
Deciding to rush and then pledge Alpha Kappa Psi as a first semester freshman was probably the smartest and most rewarding decision I have made at Chapman. Not just because of the professional skills and leadership opportunities, but because it has introduced me to a group of remarkable individuals who support and inspire me everyday. AKPsi is given the luxury of choosing some of the brightest and most hardworking students at Chapman and these people have become not only my role models and motivation but also my closest friends and people who have stuck with me throughout my college career. We are a group of diverse individuals who come together in every setting from San Francisco leadership trips to snow trips at Big Bear. It does not matter where you come from, what major you are pursuing or what industry you hope to enter in the future, AKPsi will do all it can to prepare you and give you a competitive advantage.
I encourage you to come to our rush events, talk to the brothers, and see if AKPsi is a good fit for you. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have about Alpha Kappa Psi or Rush. If you do decide to rush, I would like to personally welcome and challenge you to work your hardest and get ready for a once in a lifetime experience.
Thank you and see you at Rush,
VP of Membership | Spring 2019
