Epsilon Chapter "Star of the East"

Kappa Alpha Psi Incorporated, a college Fraternity, now comprised of functioning Undergraduate and Alumni Chapters on major campuses and in cities throughout the world, is the crystallization of a dream. It is the beautiful realization of a vision shared commonly by the late Revered Founders; the most honored and revered being Elder Watson Diggs.

It was the vision of these astute men that enabled them in the school year 1910 - 11, more specifically the night of January 5, 1911, on the campus of Indiana University at Bloomington, Indiana, to sow the seed of a fraternal tree whose fruit is available to, and now enjoyed by, college men everywhere, regardless of their color, religion or national origin. 

 

The Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi was founded on the evening of Dec 4, 1915 on the campus of Lincoln University. It is said in the history books of Lincoln that the chartering of the Epsilon chapter ended an unhealthy feud and level of competition amongst greeks on the yard as well as changed the overall atmosphere of the campus for the better. 

The most honored and revered founder Elder Watson Diggs rode on horse in buggy from Bloomington, Indiana to give this chapter his personal and official installation, recognition and blessing. Thus naming it "The Star of the East." 

 

The Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi is the first chapter on the East Koast as well as the first chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi. (Name changed from Kappa Alpha Nu to Kappa Alpha Psi on April 15, 1915) Thus ended the infancy of KAPPA ALPHA PSI, whereupon the Fraternity embarked upon an era of expansion.

 

After a long hiatus, the Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi has returned to it's home at Lincoln University. With a host of educational initiatives as well as social activities, Kappa Alpha Psi has returned as a premier front runner in the development and growth of the Lincoln University's student body and the surrounding community.

 

We have hit the ground working for Kappa. And we look forward to continuing the legacy of great Kappa men not only at our chapter, but throughout our noble Klan. Thank you for all of your support, and please continue to join us at the "Star of the East!"
