Akash’s involvement also includes Delta Sigma Pi, which he joined to further his network and engagement activities. The fraternity volunteers with several organizations including Ronald McDonald House and Gleaners Food Bank. This spring, he was able to go on the London study abroad trip as well, which helped him connect with Kelley peers, and learn about the UK business culture.
Reflecting on how his school work has impacted his civic activity Akash shared, “The best thing about Kelley Indy is that we are able to learn a theory, practice or principle and apply it right away.”
For Akash, that mentality started with marketing and has included other leadership skills, time and task management, and software programs that are useful both in and outside of the classroom.
In the future, Akash plans on serving the community by donating his time and effort to organizations that move him and by giving back to the programs at IUPUI that have helped build his future.
When it comes to choosing his career, Akash said, “I will be looking at how the company gives back.”
As for himself, Akash plans to give back to IUPUI by supporting Jagathon as an alumni and also stay connected in the community as an alumnus for Delta Sigma Pi.
