We are a co-ed professional pharmacy fraternity located at Drake University in the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Des Moines, Iowa.
Our local chapter is the Beta Chi chapter, and we are part of the Northern Plains Province.
Kappa Psi is the largest pharmacy fraternity in the world with 155 chapters and over 93,000 collegiate and graduate members.
Kappa Psi is also the largest of the three pharmacy fraternities on Drake's campus. Beta Chi, Drake's chapter, was installed at the Des Moines College of Pharmacy in 1930 and transferred to Drake in 1939.
While many things have changed since then, the brotherhood and ideals of Kappa Psi have remained strong.
