Student Organization Spotlight: Kappa Alpha Psi, Fraternity Inc.

Brotherhood is essential to young men who are seeking mentors in life and as well as wanting to build a large bond and network with men who serve similar interest in the community. The fraternity experience has paved the way for many students to become part of Greek life and understand how achievement in every field of human endeavor is possible. It was the vision of our astute Founders that enabled them in the school year 1910 – 11, to sow the seed of this grand fraternity, in which can be enjoyed by college men everywhere.
