We are looking for the best and the brightest that are up to the challenge to be apart of Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity, Inc. We work to build leaders both personally and professionally and equip them with skills that will help them succeed in pharmacy school, in residencies, and in the workplace. Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity, Inc. is the oldest and largest fraternity within the profession with over 65,000 Brothers internationally. Take the next step to becoming part of this vast Brotherhood — Your future awaits!
WHAT IS RUSH?
Rush is a commitment-free process where students are invited to attend various events hosted by the Chapter. At these events, prospective members will have the opportunity to personally meet and interact with the Brothers of Kappa Psi. The goal of our rush events is to allow prospective members to get to know the Brothers as well as learn about Kappa Psi as a Fraternity before deciding to pledge.
All of our events are free and are open to all students. There is no obligation to join by attending our rush events.
WHAT IS PLEDGING?
Pledging begins when "rushees" accept a "bid" from the Brothers. During the pledge process, the pledge is not yet a Brother, but will experience what it takes to become one. The pledge process is the journey where pledges learn the meaning behind our four pillars and develop strong bonds between the pledge class and Brothers. Pledges should be prepared to work hard for the betterment of the Fraternity and the profession of pharmacy, rather than expectation of personal gain.
