carnegie mellon university pittsburgh, pa 2011/12


Dear Employer, A

s America’s largest and oldest business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi has long been recognized as the premier developer of principled business leaders. Our rich tradition of success is evidenced by our well-known alumni, including former President Ronald Reagan, Forbes Magazine Editor-in-Chief Malcolm Forbes Jr., and Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton among many other notable names. At Carnegie Mellon University, the Omega Psi chapter has established itself as a leading student organization, consistently attracting the best and brightest minds on campus. When our members graduate, they join a worldwide alumni network boasting over a century of history and 200,000 members. I invite you to see for yourself why supporting Alpha Kappa Psi would be a rewarding experience for you. Due to our extensive influence within many of the university’s most recognized organizations, we offer an unparalleled ability to reach out to the Carnegie Mellon community. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me through email at haydent@andrew.cmu.edu or through my phone number at (609) 933-2312. Sincerely,

Hayden Tang, President of the Omega Psi Chapter


we are especially desirous of having only the very best men in this school of commerce as members of this fraternity.

This Spring, Alpha Kappa Psi hosted the first ever Corporate Networking Dinner on campus. We brought in 10 different tech and business oriented companies for a dinner and mocktail reception. The dinner was a great success and we intend to host a significantly larger dinner this fall.

We recognize the importance of practicing business skills in a variety of settings, and we seek to foster this by hosting Case Competitions. Our latest competition was sponsored by Capital One, and succeeded in attracting 15 student teams to compete for corporate interest.

A business education is not easy to come by, and this year we are volunteering at local high schools to offer professional tutorship. Honoring our values, we hope to teach public speaking, resume building, networking, and other skills to students who cannot otherwise gain them.

Alpha Kappa Psi prides itself on mental fortitude and intellectual rigor. In our campus-wide annual brainteaser competition, 15 teams comprising 75 students competed for glory and gift certificates, and we succeeded in raising $250 for charity.

recruitment Each Fall and Spring, Alpha Kappa Psi hosts two weeks of rush during which students attend events to get to know our members and experience what our fraternity has to offer. In the Fall of 2011, 250 students attended our rush and we received 68 applications for membership. This year, Capital One was the premier sponsor for our rush process and received exclusive placement on all rush materials. With the funds from their sponsorship, we were able to greatly increase quality of our promotional media, receiving 150% more student interest - the highest turnout in the history of our fraternity.
