A standout pharmaceutical fraternity for 141 years.
Kappa Psi is the oldest and largest pharmaceutical fraternity in the world. Mu Omicron Pi is built from the ground up with Kappa Psi's values of fellowship, industry, sobriety, and high ideals.
We are so proud of our new graduates David Bermudez and Pierce Shaw!
We are excited for the Kappa Psi anniversary on May 30th and the Mu Omicron Pi anniversary on May 12th!
Congratulations to our newest brothers Johnie Bailey, Evan Johnson, and Jad Kawas!
Mu Omicron Pi Fraternity was founded by 14 members on May 12th 1926. The 14 members of the General Assembly comprised of executive members: President John H. Conlin, Honorary President Dean Esten P. Stout, Secretary & Treasurer Kenneth C. Owens, and Faculty Advisor Dr. Walter J. Wilson. The Fraternity was born from a group of men who joined together 2 years prior to the founding of Mu Omicron Pi. These men were gathered because they possessed similar tendencies and wanted to excel in the College of Pharmacy as well as in a Drug Store. The goal of Mu Omicron Pi was to be able to uplift the College of Pharmacy with school spirit as well as to excel socially within the Detroit College of Pharmacy.

Brothers of Kappa Psi are held together by a bond like no other. Many of our graduates stay close with their fellow brothers many years after graduation, whether though work or play.

As brothers of Kappa Psi - Mu Omicron Pi we have the pleasure of living in our beautiful house at 719 Virginia Park St. We use this space not only for ourselves but also for all members of the college as we hold yearly barbecues, Halloween parties, and other fun things!
Chapter retreats and meetings are opportunities for Brothers to make their visions become reality. Each Brother hones their leadership by creating goals, effectively organizing plans, and helping build their Brothers, which allows the Chapter as a whole to create an impact on the community.
Each year we initiate one or more pledge classes into our chapter. Each class is unique and builds upon the traditions set by previous classes. Our fine brothers of Kappa Psi strive to leave their mark on the fraternity.
Philanthropy is held in the highest regard by all brothers of Kappa Psi. We know that we can only be as great as the community that surrounds us.
In 2019, we had the great opportunity to provide Christmas gifts to a family in need. Thanks to a success fundraiser at our Great Lakes Province Fundraiser, we were able to donate nearly $1,000 in gifts to the family in need.
Our chapter takes advantage of every volunteering opportunity we come across in the local Detroit area. No job is too big or too small for the brothers of Kappa Psi. Past experiences include the Night Nation Run, Forgotten Harevest, and Focus Hope.
Brothers of Mu Omicron Pi find time in their busy schedules to help with blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar screening events. There are often times dozens of patients waiting to be served at these wonderful clinics.
Kappa Psi - Mu Omicron Pi knows the importance of keeping stress low. That's why we hold annual events such as our PharmPhest BBQ and our Halloween party, as well as other exciting activities throughout the year!
Annual Halloween Party
We held the latest edition of our annual Halloween Party after the conclusion of midterm exams!
We hosted our annual BBQ for incoming P1s to give them the opportunity to mingle with current pharmacy students and student organizations. Thank you to all those who attended and as well as contributed to the success of the BBQ.
