If you have recently accepted a bid to become a candidate for the Psi chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi, congratulations! Our members have recognized you for your technical musical achievements and strong marching efforts, and for your valuable presence within the marching band. We believe you have great potential as a brother of Psi, and we hope to cultivate your sense of service and leadership through membership in Kappa Kappa Psi.
In order to become a full-fledged member of Kappa Kappa Psi, you must complete our candidate process, which typically starts early in Winter Quarter at UCLA and ends soon after the start of Spring Quarter. During the candidate process, you will learn about the histories of Kappa Kappa Psi, Tau Beta Sigma, and UCLA. You will also take part in weekly meetings and organizing events, both of which are important aspects of membership in Psi. Our schedule lays out event dates and deadlines for requirements.
At our core, we are a band service fraternity. We provide water during our band camp, design biannual season shirts, assemble the director’s tower, and host events for band members to meet each other. We assist our music department and those of nearby high schools. All the money we fundraise helps support marching bands and music.
Yet we are more than just a group of volunteers. We are a brotherhood. That both unites us and is fundamental to not just our Chapter, but the Fraternity. Even when sports brings our marching band to other schools, we find an instant connection with other brothers.
Every winter, we recognize outstanding members of the UCLA Bruin Marching Band by inviting them to join our Chapter. We look for band members who have a positive attitude, a dedication to service, and a passion for music.
