Kappa Kappa Psi

Kappa Kappa Psi Logo

Kappa Kappa Psi is the co-ed National Honorary College Band Fraternity. Following in the tradition of the Band Clubs sponsored by Preston Mayhew in the 1930s, the Lambda Tau Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi was installed at Central Michigan University in the Spring of 2006. The fraternity assists the Chippewa Marching Band in several ways. During band camp, the group is responsible for bringing and refilling water coolers so band members will never go thirsty. They sell band camp starter kits, mentor new members, and assist the managers and equipment staff with the issue and collection of instruments and uniforms. The can also be found delivering apples after halftime and tending to the water coolers on Game Days. Kappa Kappa Psi, however, not only assists the Marching Band. The Brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi are dedicated to the existence and welfare of each of the bands here at CMU. We invite anyone who wishes to better the band program to visit us at Open Rush for the music service groups, which occurs early in the fall and spring semesters.
