Kappa Kappa Psi

Kappa Kappa Psi is the national band fraternity which has chapters at various colleges and universities throughout the country. At WVU, our chapter is titled the Omicron chapter; it is a coed organization consisting of approximately 25-30 members. The organization, which celebrates it’s 82nd Anniversary in June of 2008, has a rich history of service to the bands and is steeped in tradition. Over the past years, Omicron has developed into one of the leading chapters in the entire country. Several times, our chapter has been selected as the top KKΨ; chapter in the Northeast District!

The primary purpose of KKΨ; is to provide service to the band program. Here at WVU, the Omicron chapter assists with many of the logistical matters concerning the bands, including helping with various tasks at band camp, assisting with uniform distribution, preparing the “Pride Press”, helping to organize and run hosted band festivals, organizing the year-end Band Banquet, and providing “Band Warehouse” – the only place to buy official WVU Band paraphernalia. The fraternity also sponsors three scholarships presented annually at the Band Banquet. Throughout the year, KKΨ; also organizes various social activities for all band members and assists the other bands at WVU (Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, Concert Band, and Basketball Pep Band) in many ways each year.

Membership in the fraternity is open to all interested members of any of the WVU Bands. Information concerning joining the brotherhood of KKΨ; can be obtained by contacting any active Brother of the Omicron Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi or by contacting the WVU Band Office.
