Letter from the President

Dear Potential New Member,

Thank you for your interest in joining Alpha Kappa Psi. We pride ourselves on being the nation’s oldest and largest business fraternity. We strive to educate and inspire our members about common business practices and professionalism. AKPsi also helps our members develop personally and professionally while challenging them to discover their passions inside and outside the classroom. Alpha Kappa Psi offers a hands-on experience as we partner with Deloitte during the pledge process to conduct a practical client-based project.

This organization prepares our brothers for work after graduation. Our junior brothers had a 100% internship placement, and our sophomore brothers had 75% internship placement this past summer. AKPsi works diligently to help our brothers work for their dream company right after school.

AKPsi is more than an organization to me. This fraternity is where I met my housemates, my best friends and found my family here at Miami. On behalf of Gamma Chi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi, I invite you to rush this fall.

If you have any questions, please email me at contact@muakpsi.com. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Sincerely,

Marcus Newell

President
