ISU’s Kappa Psi Epsilon Pi chapter awarded 8th Best Chapter
The ISU Kappa Psi chapter, Epsilon Pi, was recently recognized as the 8th best chapter in the whole fraternity. The Kappa Psi “Best Chapter” award is a recognition awarded on an annual basis. Considerations for the award include; maintaining membership over time, operations of the chapter, participation within the fraternity on a regional and national level, scholarship and awards earned by members, participation in other pharmacy organizations and leadership positions held in those organizations, participation in professional pharmacy activities and philanthropic activities, social activities and relationships with the graduate members of the fraternity. There are 115 chapters in the fraternity that are up for consideration. Our chapter is one the smaller-medium sized chapters and is only about 7 years old. Winning this award shows that our students are leaders and are dedicated to their profession and to their community.
