Kappa Alpha Psi



On May 10, 1969 The Epsilon Rho Chapter was founded on the campus of Western Kentucky University. The Alpha Line of EP's history was the "Nasty Nineteen." The "Nasty Nineteen" paved the way for the brothers today and for brothers to come to achieve in this illustrious organization. This was just the beginning of a beautiful and everlasting tradition to be started on the Hill.   Since the chapter's beginning, The Epsilon Rho Chapter has become a pillar of strength and resiliency at WKU. The chapter has always been the forerunner in civic activities, social functions, and in academics. Our chapter has produced several college graduates who have gone on to become, lawyers, doctors, college administrators, pro athletes, businessmen, journalist, and educators, and various other fields. Our goal is to continue striving for the fraternity's Moto: "Achievement in Every Field of Human Endeavor."
