Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity was founded in May 1879 in New England. The Beta Pi chapter at Washington State University was founded in April 1916. Originally, there were eight pharmacy students, four medical students and one faculty advisor. Currently, only pharmacy students and pre-pharmacy students are eligible for membership.
The WSU Beta Pi chapter has two elected officer seats in our province. Kappa Psi is involved in the community and members perform community service activities. Some of these activities include helping to organize Health and Wellness Week at WSU, holding food drives, making hygiene kits, participating in walks/runs, and being actively involved with Adopt-A-Highway by maintaining a stretch of highway.
Kappa Psi is a co-ed fraternity and members are also involved with social activities. The chapter coordinates movie nights, bowling, laser tag, ski trips, hockey games, and an annual College of Pharmacy Halloween Party. Members promote social activities to meet new members and create lasting bonds with classmates and other pharmacy school Kappa Psi members.
