Epsilon Lambda Chapter History
On the date of March 5, 1966, on the highest hill in Athens, Ohio, the Epsilon Lambda Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi was founded. Thanks to the joint efforts of Kappa men from the Zeta chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi and the Delta chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi at Wilberforce University, the brothers of Epsilon Lambda were successful in planting the seeds of this great chapter. On the campus of Ohio University, Kappa Alpha Psi continues in the traditions of a fraternity in which the fundamental purpose is Achievement.Throughout the past 42 years, the Epsilon Lambda Chapter has been striving to uphold the ideals and goals of our college based fraternity.We have been successful in raising the sights of Black collegians and guiding the Black students to levels of Achievement higher than he ever might have imagined. While training for leadership our brothers also have been successful in academics, student organizations, athletics, and social service all the while being a strong force in the Athens community.
We are the Epsilon Lambda Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated.
Our Charter Members played an intricate role in the development of service and toiled and strove for the betterment of student life at Ohio University.
