On July 17-22, members of WSU Applebaum's Mu Omicron Pi chapter of Kappa Psi joined brothers from across the country in Phoenix to celebrate the past and present while planning for the future at the fraternity's 60th Grand Council Convention.

The event included nearly 500 brothers and guests from across the U.S., Canada and the Bahamas. In addition to conducting the business of the fraternity, Wayne State’s Mu Omicron Pi chapter was awarded the new Kappa Psi Chapter Leadership Award, which honors hard work and initiative.

“To be presented with this award is an honor for our Past President Noah Trotter and our entire chapter, and we as an organization will strive to keep working together as a unit to maintain our status,” said incoming Chapter President Evan Johnson, who traveled to Phoenix with brother Daniyal Nasir. “Being able to attend a convention was an honor and provided us an opportunity to witness our fraternity's involvement on a national level. We were able to meet and network with brothers from across the country and in a wide variety of fields within pharmacy. Knowing that Kappa Psi will always support us in our journey through pharmacy is a wonderful feeling.”

WSU Applebaum information meetings for prospective students take place at 6 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. The application process for the Doctor of Pharmacy program begins each July.
