INDIANAPOLIS — The 2014-15 fiscal year marked another successful year of expansion for Alpha Kappa Psi. Efforts resulted in the installations of two collegiate chapters and six alumni chapters. Most notably, the fraternity further expanded its global presence. Within exactly 71 days of each other, Alpha Kappa Psi chartered its first two international alumni chapters in fraternal history. Three student colonies and five alumni colonies were also established this past year.
“It’s an exciting time for Alpha Kappa Psi,” said Jeff Hughes, Director of Alumni Development. “We have two new international chapters in areas where Alpha Kappa Psi really hasn’t had an official presence before. Beyond that, the State of Florida now hosts the greatest amount of our alumni chapters, and we re-chartered one of our oldest chapters in Pittsburgh.”
To recap, below are the new chapters and colonies from the 2014-15 year:
ASEAN Alumni (Singapore)
Bluegrass Alumni (Louisville/Lexington)
Dallas/Fort Worth Alumni
First Coast Alumni (Jacksonville, FL)
Golden Triangle Alumni (Pittsburgh)
Beta Omicron (Wayne State)
Alpha Iota (Utah)
University of Tampa
Florida Treasure Coast Alumni (West Palm Beach)
Northeast Ohio Alumni (Cleveland)
Paradise Coast Alumni (Naples, FL)
Founding a chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi is an exciting venture for those who accept the call of starting a new organization. There are many benefits in starting an organization, including leadership opportunities, shaping an organization, and gaining valuable experience that translates well in the workplace.
