Student Organizations


Kappa Kappa Psi Logo

Kappa Kappa Psi National Honor Band Society is a fraternity in which band students can grow, learn, and develop themselves and their band programs. We operate primarily as a student service and leadership recognition society whose goal is in assisting the Director of Bands in developing the leadership and enthusiasm that is required of the bands. The fraternity holds multiple activities through the year that are directly aimed towards the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Winds, Concert Band, and the Bronco Pep Band. These activities range from service events, social activities, and leadership. Membership in Kappa Kappa Psi enriches the band student's life by providing educational and service activities as well as a social ones. This unique opportunity sharpens an appreciation for both the best in Music and what it takes to achieve it.
