Kappa Kappa Psi has been a huge part of my college experience since I have been here at the University of Northern Iowa. I’ll never forget seeing all the members talking and having so much fun together and I just thought to myself, I want to be a part of that group. My chapter, Eta Pi, really helps out with our marching band. We help out by filling up water coolers for the band and providing everyone pizza and pop on game days. We also help out high school bands in our area. One service event we did this year was going to one of our past graduate assistant’s school and help sort out her music library. She truly appreciated it and it felt nice that we were able to help her out. A huge event we help out with is the Northern Festival of Bands. We help out by providing a meal for all the directors, an ice cream social for the high school students, and help with setting up and tearing down the chairs and stands. Every year all the directors of the high school bands and our college professors are truly thankful for all that we do and again we feel like we live up to our creed and motto. I have enjoyed every minute of being in Kappa Kappa Psi and I honestly believe if I didn’t join I wouldn’t be where I am today. Kappa Kappa Psi is a second family to me and I can’t wait to see more of what we will do in the future.
