North Dakota State’s chapter of Kappa Psi hosted its own charity fundraising event Monday.
Fries with Kappa Psi took place in the University Lutheran Center and was hosted to raise money for Kamp Kace, a camp for children with cancer and their siblings. The camp is a free week-long camp and its mission is to give children with cancer a chance to really be kids.
On Monday this week, Kappa Psi hosted an event called “Fries with the Kappa Psis.”
Admission to the event was five dollars.
Hannah Schroden, a third year pharmacy student and president of Kappa Psi, said that Kappa Psi is the pharmaceutical fraternity on campus as well as the largest professional fraternity across the nation.
The fraternity primarily consists of pharmaceutical students, however if a student switches their major once they have joined the fraternity they are still welcome.
Schroden said the event idea was sparked by trying to rhyme words with “Psis,” and that once fries were involved the event sounded fun.
Macey Llewellyn, a senior and vice regent of service for Kappa Psis, also talked a little bit about the event and what else Kappa Psi does around the community.
Llewellyn said the fraternity regularly visits the West Fargo high rises to provide meals and blood pressure checks to the low income people who live there.
Michael Joldersma, a Kappa Psi alumnus who graduated in 1986, said he remembered the fraternity before there were “girl-brothers,” before the fraternity was co-ed.
He said he remembers doing community events in support of local groups, a specific event he remembered was a Telethon.
