Build your legacy.
Dear Prospective Rushee,
Welcome to the Chi Sigma Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi. As you spend time getting to know our chapter, I encourage you to be curious, ask lots of questions, and truly learn about our brotherhood throughout Rush Week.
This semester, our rush theme is “Building Leaders. Building Legacies.”
As the oldest and largest professional business fraternity in the country, Alpha Kappa Psi is one of the most valuable organizations that bridge the gap between higher education and the workforce. However, with Northeastern University’s unique nature, you might wonder how Alpha Kappa Psi could further develop the skills you might eventually obtain through the co-op curriculum. Simply put: at Chi Sigma, not only do we prepare individuals for the workforce, we prepare them to change it-- help build their legacy.
We are proud to say that our network is one of the most extensive amongst all organizations on campus. Because of our diversity in gender, culture, and majors, we have brothers who are leaders in various industries in numerous countries. Through our vast network and commitment to nurturing leadership, our brothers have accomplished so much.
While any organization can help you realize your professional potential, Alpha Kappa Psi is an organization that builds character. Being a Brother at Alpha Kappa Psi and Chi Sigma means that you show qualities affirming our five core values: brotherhood, knowledge, unity, service, and integrity. But most importantly, it means to establish leadership skills and relationships beyond the professional-- to provide an unwavering support system and help each other grow for the better.
Thus, the rush process is all about exploration and discovery. Don’t be shy. Regardless of the outcome at the end of the rush process, I only hope you are able to leave with new interests, relationships and confidence. On behalf of Chi Sigma, we welcome you to Rush Week; see what our Brotherhood can offer you.
President, Chi Sigma Chapter
What is rush?
Rush is a series of events that provides those interested in joining with the opportunity to learn more about the fraternity and interact with active brothers. Our events are reflective of the values pillared from Alpha Kappa Psi’s foundation and create a snapshot of our brotherhood as a whole.
Why should I join Alpha Kappa Psi?
By joining Alpha Kappa Psi, you will gain valuable professional, leadership, and communication skills alongside lifetime friendships. Alpha Kappa Psi ensures you not only learn how to develop yourself, but also enhance your ability to lead others.
Who is eligible to rush?
We are open to ALL MAJORS of any year. We have been a co-ed fraternity since 1976.
What is Alpha Kappa Psi’s hazing policy?
Alpha Kappa Psi has a zero tolerance hazing policy. Hazing is defined as “Any action taken or situation created, intentionally or unintentionally, whether on or off the fraternity premises, to produce physical or mental discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule or possibly cause physical harm or injury”. Any form of hazing is not tolerated and would be immediately reported.
What is the ideal candidate for Alpha Kappa Psi like?
We do not have a single ideal rush candidate profile. We recognize that the diversity of talents and contributions of individuals vary, and we welcome that! However, we are looking for highly motivated, passionate candidates with an interest in being a leader and making a positive impact. Most importantly, we look for individuals who desire to learn from current brothers and contribute to the brotherhood and society as a whole.
If I do not get a bid, can I rush again?
Yes. We encourage prior rush candidates to apply again if they did not receive a bid the first time. Determination and personal refinement are valued traits within our fraternity.
