Xi-Psi President 2019-2020
A letter from our president
On behalf of the Xi-Psi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi, I would like to formally welcome you to our page. My name is Julia Shepard, and I am the current President of Xi-Psi chapter here at Illinois State University. We strive to develop principled leaders and help each individual reach their potential personally and professionally. We are open to all majors and have brothers all around the world, creating a vast network of driven individuals wanting to help you reach your goals.
Since joining the Xi-Psi chapter, I have developed in so many ways as an individual, as well as a professional. I’ve also made great friends while having fun at service, social and professional events. AKPsi has taught me to communicate, lead, and prepare myself for the future. As President, I have had amazing opportunities to lead our chapter to develop new ideas and focus on continuous learning and growth.
Please feel free to explore our website and please reach out to us with questions!
President, Xi Psi Chapter
What is alpha kappa psi?
Alpha Kappa Psi, also known as "AKPsi", is a professional co-ed business fraternal organization with chapters all around the world. Founded in 1904 at New York University, AKPsi is the Oldest and Largest business fraternity. The Xi-Psi chapter at Illinois State University has been one of the leading business organizations on campus since 2010. With over 270,000 initiated members worldwide, our extensive Alumni Network allows members to land dream jobs and internships at the world's most successful companies.
Alpha Kappa Psi at ISU represent the most driven, hardworking and elite students in the college of business though we do accept people from all majors. We have majors outside of the college of business such as mathematics, information technology, education and construction management because the major does not define a person's core ability of success. We want the best students on campus to join us, are you one of them? Having more than 60 active brothers who share the same focused mindset, forms a community of success. With participation in professional, service and social events, the brothers of AKPsi are well rounded individuals who leave a lasting impact everywhere they go. Many of the men and women of our chapter land multiple internships during their time in college which allows them to ultimately land jobs upon graduation.
Whether it is obtaining a $250,000 deal from Mark Cuban on NBC's Shark Tank, working internships in other countries or landing your dream job at a Fortune 500 company upon graduation, we have brothers that are willing to help.
