HISTORICAL NOTE:
Alpha Kappa Psi was a co-ed, professional business fraternity. Its mission was to provide members with the resources to become successful in the business world. Gustavus Adolphus College’s Epsilon Xi Chapter was founded in the 1950s and ended in the late 1990s. Their four pillars were service, professional learning, social, and brotherhood. Alpha Kappa Psi consisted of six committees: community service, social, professional learning, campus business, fund raising, and promotions and awards. They rushed each semester and actively attended National Conventions. They also volunteered within the St. Peter community and organized the reopening of the Dive in the 1990s.
