Students: Get involved with Greek life

Alpha Kappa Psi is the oldest and largest professional co-ed business fraternity founded in 1904 at New York University. Mu Nu chapter was established here at Oakland University in 1985.

The fraternity provides students with the opportunity outside the classroom to build skills and experience, to become better business leaders in the community.

Globally, the fraternity has over 200 chapters in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Although Alpha Kappa Psi is a business fraternity, it is open to all majors. No matter what type of degree you are pursuing here at Oakland, you will need to be able to present yourself in a professional manner to future employers.

Our members have grown to become a highly recognized pool of potential recruits by many of the nation’s leading organizations.

Being part of Alpha Kappa Psi not only gives you the skills you need to succeed, but opens an extensive alumni network and business leadership training opportunities to you.

In today’s ever-changing environment, it is not enough just to go to college. Companies want an individual who can set themselves apart from the vast pool of candidates.

When it comes to getting the career you want, you will need to differentiate yourself from others.

Benefits of joining Alpha Kappa Psi are unlimited, but some of the opportunities you can expect to receive include networking, leadership experience, life-long friendships, interview skills, resumé building and relationships with affiliated OU professors

Before coming into Oakland, I really didn’t have much management experience.

I’ve been on many interviews, and I know that companies are looking for someone who not only has management experience, but who can be a leader.

They are looking for someone who is not afraid of innovation and change.

Being in the fraternity has given me the opportunity to become a leader, has helped me grow.

Now I am confident that when I find the job I want my leadership skills will transition well into getting that job.

Another important aspect that has made my experience memorable here at Oakland University was meeting a lot of really great people.

That is the greatest benefit I have received from being a part of this organization. I mean without friends, what fun is life.

We are actively involved in socials’ throughout the year and have lots of fun.

Last year we played paintball, went to Chicago, had bonfires and did all kinds of activities.

You can gain all of these skills in Alpha Kappa Psi while also becoming a part of an everlasting Brotherhood!
