The Germantown (TN) Alumni Chapter Membership Intake
Membership in this Fraternity is a solemn commitment. To this Fraternity, the maker of the commitment becomes synonymous with the commitment itself. Membership in Kappa Alpha Psi is a lifelong dedication to the ideals and lofty purposes of Kappa Alpha Psi, which considers for membership only those aspirants whose personal, social, and academic qualifications are acceptable to both college and Fraternity.
Maturity and dedication are expected both of new members and established members alike. Maturity is more than simply reaching a certain age. Maturity, to us, means acceptance of reality, the ability to sacrifice and set goals, consideration of others, incisive judgment, emotional balance, acceptable social skills, intellectual competence, and moral rectitude.
Dedication means putting those characteristics of maturity into a lifelong program of action to advance the interests, goals, and purposes of Kappa Alpha Psi. We expect our members to be dedicated.But do not let personal goals supersede those of the Fraternity. A person who feels he would do the Fraternity a favor by joining is not worthy of membership. One who holds himself superior to the brotherhood of Kappa Alpha Psi is not worthy of this distinction.
Kappa Alpha Psi is not interested in the simple accumulation of members and chapters. Our emphasis, however, is in the quality and integrity of its membership. Membership quality manifests itself through an intangible element of brotherhood we call “that Good Old Kappa Spirit.”
Acceptable qualities of Kappa Alpha Psi members include:
The disposition to live in close companionship with men of similar values
The wisdom to abide by the will of the majority without sacrificing individuality
The discretion to refrain from destructive criticism while seeking to remove the causes of such criticism
The acceptance of responsibility for any effort that moves the group forward
The desire to strive for and ultimately achieve excellence in everything you do
The commitment to train for leadership
The resolution to give lifelong financial support and commitment to the maintenance and development of the Fraternity’s programs and purposes.
