About Kappa Kappa Psi

Kappa Kappa Psi, the co-ed National Honorary Band Fraternity, was founded in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1919 at the then Oklahoma Agricultural and Technological College; now Oklahoma State.

It is Kappa Kappa Psi's purpose to aid the Director of Bands in developing the best band program possible.

Brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi are looked to as role models and leaders by other members in the band and on campus. Being a Brother is not a part time commitment. As such, the example we set should shine constantly to inspire others. The following qualities define Brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi. These qualities described Bohumil Makovsky, our Guiding Spirit. By following Boh's example, we will teach and inspire others, as he taught and inspired our Founding Fathers.

  • Honor: Brothers should conduct themselves with honor at all times. Our service to college and university bands serves as an example to others. We should take pride in these accomplishments and not let anything tarnish our honorable reputation.
  • Integrity: The character of our brotherhood is based upon the principles of decency and sincerity. Our impeccable integrity lets others know we can always be trusted to keep our word.
  • Respect: Respect for others is a cornerstone of Kappa Kappa Psi. Our diverse membership is an asset that cannot be taken for granted. Using this strength to our advantage requires respect for others and their points of view. In return, we earn the respect from others by treating them as equals.
  • Loyalty: Service to band programs and the Fraternity require people who are devoted to those organizations. Working together is the key to achieving our goals. Being loyal and dependable is therefore essential to our success.
