WHAT WE DO
The Omega Phi Chapter at San Jose State University was founded upon our 5 core values of Brotherhood, Unity, Service, Integrity and Knowledge. What we offer students is a once in a lifetime opportunity to join other like-minded individuals from diverse backgrounds to achieve greatness on our campus, in our community, our careers, and our personal lives. Recognized as the “Premier Developer of Principled Business Leaders” Alpha Kappa Psi strives to develop students to their full potential. We produce elite business professionals who become the future leaders of tomorrow. We learn. We develop ideas. And we apply what we gain from Alpha Kappa Psi to succeed in life. Upon graduating, many members pursue careers with top-notch companies such as Cisco, The Big Four, NASA, Hitachi, Oracle, etc.
We provide members with workshops, professional speakers, and a network of successful individuals who serve to guide new members with their academics and career paths. In addition to professionalism, brothers gain valuable, life-long friendships and participate in many social events with our SJSU members, local university chapters, and other SJSU organizations. Whether it is a winter or summer retreat, banquet, or mixers, we believe in the importance of celebrating the successes of the Omega Phi Chapter. Our brotherhood is the glue that bonds our fraternity together; and enables our chapter and our members to grow year after year.
A group of like-minded students at San Jose State University saw the need for an organization that would elevate their business experience and opportunities. Seeing that there was not yet an Alpha Kappa Psi chapter established on campus, these motivated students set out to found a chapter at SJSU. After planning and meeting for over a semester, Alpha Kappa Psi at San Jose State was ready to be inaugurated. On March 24th, 2005, forty-six members became founding fathers to the Omega Phi Chapter.
Rush is the process by which students engage in professional and social settings for the purpose of getting to know chapter members as well as for chapter members to get to know potential new Brothers.
Guided by five core values, Alpha Kappa Psi focuses on providing ethical leadership and professional development. Through educational programs, community service and a hands-on application of formal education, Alpha Kappa Psi students use the business skills they are taught in the classroom to acquire life skills such as the art of compromise, consensus building, project management, interviewing and networking.
