Located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, The Westin Indianapolis places you near the city’s top attractions. A skywalk connects the hotel to Circle Centre Mall for upscale restaurants, shopping and nightlife, while the roar of Lucas Oil Stadium is just steps away. Learn more here.

The total cost for a 1-night hotel stay – inclusive of taxes and fees – is $221.13. The room rate is a single-quad rate, meaning 1-4 people can stay in one room at no additional fees.

Convention Community Service Partner

Alpha Kappa Psi is honored to join forces with Teachers’ Treasures as our Indianapolis Convention community service partner. Teachers’ Treasures is an Indianapolis-based organization whose mission is to obtain and distribute school supplies free to teachers of students in need.

“Every day at public, private, charter, and parochial schools located throughout Marion County, children of all ages attend class without the most basic supplies they need to get a good education. Dedicated teachers are often willing to pay for these much needed supplies out of their own pockets to make sure the kids in their classrooms have the necessary tools to learn.  On average, teachers spend $800-$1200 a year on school supplies for their students.

Teachers’ Treasures, in partnership with local businesses, charitable foundations, neighborhood organizations and individual contributors, helps fill this need by operating a volunteer-based “Store for Teachers.”  Donated educational supplies and other materials are distributed via this unique conduit to teachers for the benefit of their students. We serve teachers from any school (public, private, charter, or parochial) in Marion County and the immediately surrounding school districts with 60% of more of the student population on the free or reduced lunch programs are eligible.” – Teachers’ Treasures
