Alpha Kappa Psi's Chi Gamma Chapter presents Fall 2023 Rush...
A Message from our Rush Chairs
We're excited to introduce you to Alpha Kappa Psi, the premier co-ed business fraternity at UC Santa Cruz. As members of AKPsi, we've had access to a supportive network of diverse, ambitious, and driven peers who share our passion for success, and we want to extend that same opportunity to you.
AKPsi is built on five core values: brotherhood, unity, integrity, service, and knowledge. These values have allowed us to build lifelong relationships and make a positive impact on our community.
As members of AKPsi, we've had unparalleled opportunities for personal and professional growth. We've attended professional development workshops, networking events, social outings, and community service projects. These experiences have not only helped us develop new skills, but also allowed us to meet some of our closest friends.
Joining AKPsi means joining a family of exceptional leaders and lifelong learners who are dedicated to brotherhood, unity, integrity, service, and knowledge. As rushees, you'll have the chance to get to know us better, ask questions, and see if our fraternity is the right fit for you. We believe that every rushee has the potential to achieve great things, and we're committed to helping you unlock your full potential. Our alumni network is extensive and active, and our members have gone on to successful careers in a variety of industries. We can't wait to meet you and welcome you into our community of driven and ambitious individuals.

What is rush?Rush is a week of activities we have planned for you to get to know more about our fraternity and meet our brothers. Alpha Kappa Psi hosts rush twice every school year, once at the beginning of Fall quarter and once at the beginning of Spring quarter. This is a great opportunity to determine if Alpha Kappa Psi is a good fit for you!
Why join?Alpha Kappa Psi is the only co-ed professional business fraternity open to all majors at UCSC. This distinguishes us from other professional fraternities on campus as it helps us build a diverse network of brothers. Our organization focuses on providing opportunities for professional and social development by surrounding ourselves with like-minded and encouraging individuals. We focus on developing each brother into a principled business leader in order to prepare our brothers for a life of success.
What does Alpha Kappa Psi look for in a potential candidate?Alpha Kappa Psi focuses on recruiting motivated and passionate candidates who are eager to learn and contribute to our organization. Although there is no specific ideal candidate we are searching for, we are looking for individuals who are excited to join and contribute to Alpha Kappa Psi.
Can I rush for Alpha Kappa Psi if I am a part of another fraternity/sorority?Yes, you are welcome to join as long as you are not a part of another professional fraternity/sorority on campus. You are still eligible to join if you are involved in any social or philanthropic fraternities/sororities.
What if I do not have the expected attire?While we look forward to seeing attendees show up expected attire, we do not expect everyone to have the materials on hand and be dressed perfectly. Just try to do the best with whatever you own.
What is a bid?A bid is a formal invitation to learn more about our fraternity in preparation to join.
If I don’t get a bid this quarter, can I try again?Yes, we highly encourage individuals who did not receive a bid to come out and rush again! This shows us determination and interest in our organization which are traits we highly value among rushees!
What if I have more questions?If you have any questions or concerns about our recruitment, please go to the "Contact Us" tab and complete the required information. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
