The Beginning

The story of Alpha Kappa Psi begins in 1904 at New York University, New York. Howard M. Jefferson, Frederic R. Leach, Nathan Lane, Jr. and George L. Bergen grew to be close friends while attending night classes and walking back home together over the Brooklyn Bridge. These eager, like-minded students pondered the idea of a fraternity over the bridge, later becoming the founders and the first elected brothers of Alpha Kappa Psi.
