Kappa Alpha Psi Inc. has played a large part in my life in a short amount of time; this organization has granted me the opportunity to attend college through a scholarship. The scholarship that I was granted was through the alumni chapter in Fayetteville; it required letters of recommendations, a transcript, an application, and an essay on what I believe “Achievement in every field of human endeavor” means. Once I received the call that was telling me to meet the representative to receive a letter stating whether I received the scholarship. When I opened the letter, two tickets fell out for the Kappa Scholarship ball, and when I read the letter, it stated that I have been picked to receive the scholarship from Kappa Alpha Psi Inc. The weekend of the scholarship ball, my mother planned a graduation trip for a couple of friends of mine and I to go Myrtle Beach. So the day of the scholarship ball, I drove from Myrtle Beach to Fayetteville to attend the scholarship ball; once I arrived at the ball, I was greeted by many men of Kappa Alpha Psi Inc. When I sat down at the table that they reserved for me and the three other scholarship awardees, I was approached by many men of the fraternity. That night was very spectacular and eventful; the men who had presented me scholarship seemed down to earth, sociable guys. They treated me with so much respect, and talked to me about how I see my future and told me what I could do to be a successful African-American in today’s society. These men set an example of accomplishment and in the short time that we had together, they instilled in me that I should never be content with where I am and I can always do better as long as I have the mind set of an achiever. Without this scholarship, I ... ... middle of paper ... ...t the top, but to raise the bar higher for those who are reaching for the top. The men of this fraternity set an example of achievement; they show that being the best isn’t enough. That is why I want to be a part of this fraternity, because I want to be set the example, I want to show that being okay isn’t good enough, and I want to show that being an African-American male, I will not be hindered by stereotypes or any other preconceptions. Being able to be a part of this organization that will push me to be the man I can be, rather than pull me down to a lower level; will grant me the opportunity to be able to show that others can make it, just like I did. Kappa Alpha Psi Inc. is the organization I wish to represent, progress, and be a member of because their objectives and goals, represent what I stand for, and I couldn’t see myself joining any other fraternity.

...old student at Georgia Tech, is a promising one. Against the odds, he has faced the segregation issue head on, and joined a traditionally white fraternity known as Pi Kappa Phi, as the only African American. Even more uplifting is the fact that he is the president of the fraternity as well.
The process of becoming a member is much harder than people would think, myself included until I experienced it first hand. Meeting people during rush week is easy, as you are respectfully invited to activities and dinners. Each group tries to persuade you to join their Fraternity by telling how great their organization is. Whether it is done by their involvement in philanthropy events, leadership learning, community service or party life they all have something different to offer. That’s where the process becomes more difficult as you try to find the one that best fits your ideals. Do you want to party all the time or do you want to get something out of it and what is it that you want to ge...

... the fraternity chapter than ourselves. Machiavelli states, “it is far safer to be feared than loved if you cannot be both.”(chap 17). Machiavelli would believe that the pledge process within the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity is being run with a type of government that is cohesive for the greater good of not only the fraternity but the entire community that is surrounding the fraternity. Machiavelli would understand that the end justifies the means of the pledging. Our pledge trainers do not fear being feared more than loved and according to Machiavelli this is one of the characteristics of a good leader.
I am seeking membership in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated to be a part of a sisterhood that leads and serves. I would love to join a sisterhood that serves the community, promotes academic achievement and builds self-esteem in students of all walks of life from primary to adulthood. In addition, I wish to expand my public service through educational development. As an educator, serving children and families through toy drives and youth mentorships would afford me countless opportunities to give back beyond the walls of my classroom, dance stage, and church. With my dedication, compassion, and creativity, I know I will work diligently to produce a strong impact on the sorority’s current programs and aid to create new
Why I desire to be an Alpha man? The answer to that question answered in its entirety would far exceed the three page limit allotted for this essay.

Because of this violation, the organization will be issued a cease and desist that will refrain them from participating in all intake activities. Using Developmental Ecology Theory I will allow John Seidelman to provide educational training to the members of the fraternity. This will allow the members to gain an understanding of their actions and create a dialogue that develops acceptance, respect, and tolerance for all individuals. In addition, I would work with Executive Director for the organization to release a press would mandate that the fraternity issue an apology to Casey Schimmelman and a statement to the
Sororities are not everything they are cracked up to be. As shown in the article, "Evictions at Sorority Raise Issue of Bias." The author is a well-respected writer with a high level of credibility. The reason behind writing this article is to present a situation that happened in a sorority chapter at DePauw University. It is clearly obvious that from Sam Dillon, the author’s point of view, the article is clearly discriminatory. Using argumentative techniques and evidence, the author created a strong persuasive argument.
In many ways, I was not expecting the honor of being asked to join Alpha Beta Kappa. Though I did set goals for my first quarter of school, I did not expect myself to maintain those goals for the quarter let alone to maintain those goals several times throughout my academic career. After doing some research on the honor society, I have learned that to be considered for membership one must demonstrate the qualities of academic achievement, leadership, character, and dedication. To be asked to join it shows that I have achieved my personal goals to work as diligent as I possibly can to stand out among the many students that attend The Art Institute of Phoenix.
When I first came to the US I did not know anyone. I had left my family and my friends back in Sweden, and I needed to create new relationships and meet new people so that I would not be all alone. To become a part of the Club soccer team was not even a question, but to become a part of Pi Beta Phi was not planned. All of my friends were signing up for recruitment, so I decided to do the same. One of them, named Andi Menaul, did not only sign up for sorority recruitment, she was rushing Alpha Kappa Psi too. During these two years she has been talking about Alpha Kappa Psi, and I have been listening to all of the different events and things that she had done and learned.
I didn’t want to join a sorority, they were outdated and time consuming, time I didn’t have time to waste. I wanted to focus on my studies, I needed to focus on my studies. My scholarship depended on it and I refused to lose it. Against, all of my protests I rushed
For 200 years Fraternities have been perceived as a building block for loyalty, friendship, and life time connections, yet to those who are ignorant of the Greek system across campuses remain unaware of the debauchery happening to achieve these goals. Sexual assault and harassment have become pledges ' selling point in proving such loyalty. At least 1 in 4 college women will be the victim of a sexual assault during her academic career (Hirsch), and at least 80% of all sexual assaults are committed by an acquaintance of the victim ( Bureau of Justice Statistics). Fraternity members are usually well known, well rounded and on paper, typically outstanding young men. It’s a mystery as to why these “brothers” find it necessary to think harassment
When people think of fraternities, a few things usually come to mind: wild parties, social status, and insane amounts of alcohol. However, fraternities have recently found themselves associated with something else: misogyny and rape. This is nothing new, considering fraternity chapters have been singing songs about the “joys” of sexual assault for decades. Only recently has the media taken notice of these actions and the results have not been pretty for the Alphas and Betas of college campuses. While some members of society defend frats with “rotten apple” and “boys will be boys” arguments, many are calling for drastic changes in how fraternities deal with and prevent misogyny and sexual crimes within the brotherhoods. They’re right to do so,
