A message from our Rush Chairs

Hi, my name is Isabel Grant-Funck and I am one of the rush chairs for Fall 2019! I am a sophomore majoring in Public Health and minoring in Spanish and Marketing. AKPsi is one of the most valuable organizations that I have been apart of at Hopkins. I almost didn’t rush because I feared that I was unqualified for such an impressive organization, but I am so grateful that I did. My advice for rush is to put yourself out there, don’t be nervous, and be yourself—it is so much fun. Can’t wait to meet you all!
Hi everyone! My name’s Alexis and I’m one of the Rush Chairs this semester! I’m a sophomore majoring in AMS and Econ, hailing all the way from Singapore! Other than AKPsi, I’m a volunteer with the SPCA and I love trying new food and discovering new music! I’m so glad I joined AKPsi because I’ve made so many amazing friends and gotten so much professional help and become much more confident! AKPsi has become such a supportive community on campus for me, and I can’t imagine my life without it. Rush AKPsi to find out what makes us so special!
Feel free to reach out to us at any point at jhuakpsirush@gmail.com
