Dear Prospective Rushee,
You have officially taken the next step to your future by coming to this page. We, the Upsilon Psi chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi, encourage you to join us for our Spring 2017 Rush. During Rush, you will learn more about our fraternity and how we can help you invest in your future and enhance your college experience. Alpha Kappa Psi emphasizes brotherhood, knowledge, integrity, service, and unity. While adhering to these core values, we build bonds between our brothers and develop principled business leaders. We will share the knowledge and resources that you seek and set you up for success.
In addition, Alpha Kappa Psi is inclusive to all 100+ majors at UC Davis. We understand that business is vital in all sectors, which is why we are open to everyone for recruitment. We believe that a strong business foundation is an absolute necessity in today's dynamic economy. Our esteemed network of alumni have delved into various industries after graduation, from biomedical engineering to investment banking to information technology. The Upsilon Psi chapter is dedicated to helping its brothers succeed and follow their dreams.
So, all I ask is that you take a chance and come out to Spring Rush – we will take care of the rest.
Brother Rohit Karthikeyan
