The beginning of the Gaithersburg/Rockville (MD) Alumni Chapter was very diverse. The diversity has contributed greatly in the making of a small, but one of the Eastern Province’s most powerful chapters.
Kappa Alpha Psi®, a college Fraternity, was born in an environment saturated in racism. The state of Indiana became the 19th state of the Union in 1816 and it founded Indiana University in Bloomington four years later.
The fundamental purpose of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. is achievement in every field of human endeavor.
We participate in community outreach activities to feed the homeless, provide scholarships to young people matriculating to college, serve as mentors to young men, participate in blood drives and serve as hosts of seminars for public health awareness to name a few.
Kappa Alpha Psi was the second historically black fraternity incorporated as a national organization. Elder Watson Diggs and nine other African American students at IU embraced a mutual vision to form a fraternity that today has 125,000 members with 700 undergraduate and alumni chapters in nearly every state of the United States, and international chapters in Nigeria, South Africa, the West Indies, the United Kingdom, Germany, Korea and Japan.
Every college man ought to belong to... such (a Fraternity) as this. It broadens his horizon and brings him into vital touch and fellowship with college men everywhere. It perpetually preserves pleasant memories of his college days and forms firms and abiding friendships.
