Message frOm the President

"As the world continues to change, the lines that divide different types of jobs, e.g. STEM jobs and business jobs, continues to blur. Therefore, it's important for everyone entering the workforce to have a good understanding of other majors and professions, have strong professional and interpersonal skills, and have an overall good understanding of how to operate within the modern economy.

AKPsi at Purdue prides itself in the fact that we are open to all majors; and that by joining, you will be surrounded by some of the smartest and most ambitious people at Purdue. Additionally, our goal is to continuously provide professional development for all of our brothers so that they are prepared to be future business leaders.

I'm very excited to have the opportunity to lead the Pi Omega chapter through the rest of the semester, and I can't wait to see everything that our chapter will accomplish!"
