Kappa Kappa Psi
Kappa Kappa Psi Fraternity was founded on the campus of Oklahoma State University in 1919 to serve the College and University band programs. The Lambda Iota Chapter at Tiffin University was founded in 2004.
Kappa Kappa Psi operates primarily as a student service and leadership recognition society whose chief aim is to assist in developing the leadership and enthusiasm required in music ensembles. Our goals are to provide ensembles not only with organized and concentrated service activities, but to give our membership valid and wholesome experiences in organization, leadership and social contacts. The honorary nature of membership is based on our premise that “it is an honor to be selected to serve” our ensembles, our music department, our university, and the cause of music in all colleges and universities.
The Fraternity is presently located at over 200 colleges and universities with 5,000 active members each year. The Fraternity’s program of continued service to Music has attracted the attention of the best in American band tradition. We number among our ranks John Philip Sousa, Karl King, Frank Simon, Herbert L. Clarke, Harold Bachman, William D. Revelli and many other contemporary composers, conductors and music educators.
On the local level, chapter responsibilities include numerous concentrated service projects as well as providing the intangible items of morale, spirit, enthusiasm, atmosphere and attitude within our ensembles. As noted in the preamble of our Constitution and as charged in much of our Ritual, the cultivation and maintenance of an agreeable and enthusiastic attitude is mandatory for all our members, and this serves to foster the wholesome and cooperative spirit necessary for any successful musical ensemble.
The Lambda Iota Chapter at Tiffin University provides support to activities of the TU Marching Band, Concert Band, Chamber Ensembles, and to the Music Department as a whole.
