chartered In 1947 with 15 men.
Right This 1996 photo shows the chapter showing-off their newly con-
structed sign. Today, Alpha Psi Is over
120 brothers strong and one of the premiere fraternities at Indiana. As a testament to their com-
mitment, Alpha Psi ranks among the Fraternity's best in a number of areas. The chapter was one of the first groups to commit to the Journey Project; in the last three years has raised over $16,000 for Push America; has had 12 Journey of Hope cyclists; and has initiated 116 men in three years. The chapter, however, was not without its problems. "We really struggled for many years," remembers Summers. Nevertheless, Alpha Psi's rechartering in 1987 allowed for many oftoday's accomplishments. "We were a small chapter prior to Ken Kaiser's arrival from the Headquarters," says Tony Cochren (Indiana- Alpha Psi) . "But even now,
11 years later, the undergrads try to stick to the values of the re-founding fathers." The chapter's most recent accomplishment was winning the prestigious Kroeg Award at the 46th Supreme Chapter in Chicago. "We were very thrilled," remarks Archon Patrick Sly. "It was awesome! When Nathan Hightower began to describe the winning chapter, we thought it sounded a lot like Alpha Psi, but we weren't sure." When asked about Alpha Psi's continued success, Patrick Sly simply says, 'There's a spirit about the house which leads people above expectation." FALL 1998
