What is Beta Alpha Psi?
We are a professional business fraternity endorsed by the Gies College of Business. Founded in 1919 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, we have over 100 years of history embodying scholarship, practicality, and sociability. Today, we continue strive towards professional and personal excellence as a chapter through our three pillars: professionalism, philanthropy, and social.
Letter from the President
Welcome to the official website of the Alpha Chapter of Beta Alpha Psi at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign! I encourage you to explore our website and social media platforms to learn more about our organization and what we do.
The way I see it, Beta Alpha Psi at the University of Illinois is a professional business fraternity focused on developing our members personally and professionally while creating a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive community. Through the different corporate, philanthropic, and social events we provide, we help members reach their full potential, allowing them success in opportunities they pursue both within the University and out in the professional world.
When I joined BAP as a freshman, I remember meeting this huge group of people that were so willing to put in their time and effort to help me grow as a person. From then on, I realized that I hadn’t just joined an organization, I had joined a large family of equally driven peers that only wanted the best for each other. In the coming semesters, I found myself achieving things I didn’t think I would be able to do and landing professional opportunities I couldn’t imagine having at the time, all thanks to the resources and guidance BAP provided me. I can confidently say that I wouldn’t be the same professional that I am today without the help of everyone I met through this organization. As the current President of BAP, I hope to provide an equally amazing experience to new incoming members of our organization.
Please feel free to contact me or anyone on the Executive Board with questions about the recruitment process or about BAP in general. Thank you again for your interest in the Alpha Chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, and we look forward to meeting you!
All the best,
