On Sunday, May 8, the business fraternity, Pi Sigma Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi was installed at George Mason University. More than thirty students participated in an all day event that was the culmination of a year-long process of developing and recruiting students from across the university. School of Business representatives—including Dean Jorge Haddock, Associate Dean Alison O’Brien, and faculty advisor Shelly Canterbury—attended the installation.
“Joining Alpha Kappa Psi has been a beneficial experience for me,” says Mohit Taneja, vice president of the newly installed chapter. “Not only did it allow me to meet new people, but it provided the opportunity to participate in different philanthropy events, while still focusing on the professional aspect. As a fraternity we had similar goals which we used to support a cause and bond simultaneously. Even though our process of rechartering has come to an end, we have just begun establishing our brotherhood.”
In its first year, the new business fraternity supported philanthropy efforts by coordinating a bake sale and attending a walk for Lupus. The fraternity also held professional panel events.
Sara Moorad, the chapter president said, “We are excited about the installation and are beginning the activities for recruitment in the fall semester.”
