The Omicron Psi Chapter was founded in Lexington, Kentucky at the University of Kentucky in 1998. Since then, AKPsi has taken part in a variety of activities such as intramurals, Relay for Life, and Habitat for Humanity. We encourage our brothers to get involved in other organizations on campus to expand their professional network. Some of our brothers are initiated members of social sororities and fraternities as well as being involved in the Student Activities Board, the Honors Program, Gatton Ambassadors, and other academic fraternities.
Our Chapter has also received national recognition with events such as Professionalpalooza, which is a day-long professional event held once a year to improve professional skills needed in the work force.
Alpha Kappa Psi was founded on October 5, 1904 at New York University. Its founders, Fredrick Leach, Howard Jefferson, Nathan Lane, Jr., and George Bergen set forth a plan to perpetuate the business education and sense of brotherhood that had formed during their years at NYU. The nation's first professional business fraternity, AKPsi, developed and expanded rapidly in its early years, becoming an international organization on April 18, 1931. Over its 107-year history, AKPsi has grown to be the largest business fraternity in the world, with 332 chapters and over 225,000 initiated members across three countries. AKPsi alumni include presidents, chief executives, and federal judges.
