Our members are involved in dozens of organizations across campus and study in a variety of majors. Chartered in 2010, the Psi Rho Chapter has grown with over 75 active brothers both on campus and abroad. The recruitment process is strictly governed by the procedures and policies of its national charter. As members of the UConn community, we are committed to recruiting and retaining the best talent to further shape and mold the future of business.

Alpha Kappa Psi was founded on October 5, 1904 at New York University. Its founders, Fredrick Leach, Howard Jefferson, Nathan Lane, Jr., and George Bergen set forth a plan to perpetuate the business education and sense of brotherhood that had formed during their years at NYU. The nation's first professional business fraternity, AKPsi developed and expanded rapidly in its early years, becoming an international organization on April 18, 1931. Over its 113-year history, AKPsi has grown to be the largest business fraternity in the world, with 332 chapters and over 225,000 initiated members across three countries. AKPsi alumni include presidents, chief executives, and federal judges.
