Message frOm the President

"Since 2000, we at the Pi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi have worked to develop a community of forward-thinking leaders at Purdue that are driven by progress and service.

When I first joined Alpha Kappa Psi in Fall 2019, I hoped to find a community that allowed me to further develop my passions for business, entrepreneurship, and innovation, all while being surrounded by people who worked to build better versions of each other. Through our corporate connections, emphasis on brotherhood, and a wide array of social and professional events, I have grown more than I could have ever imagined. I could not be more thankful for what this organization has given me, and I can only hope that you might be able to see why we are known as the premier developer of principled business leaders."
