Hi Brothers! My name is Eva Galka and I’ll be serving as your Chaplain this year! After being introduced to the fraternity as a disoriented P1, I was inspired by my family line’s active engagement within the fraternity at the chapter and regional level. Most importantly, they impressed upon me the importance of our fraternity’s tenants, rich history, traditions, and rituals. Little did I know, the decision to pledge Kappa Psi would end up becoming one of my greatest odysseys, allowing me to improve my interpersonal and professional skills, fostering bonds and granting me some of the best times of my life with Brothers both inside and outside of my home chapter. I’ve traveled alongside my Brothers to Wisconsin, Kansas, Tennessee, Georgia, New Mexico, and soon, Florida!
This year, I’ll be a P3 at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) College of Pharmacy. I work as an Inpatient Pharmacy Technician at the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center and as an Intern at Walgreens Pharmacy. I serve as Chi Chapter’s Corresponding Secretary and resident cat lady (yes I will happily catsit for you) and President of UIC’s Polish American Pharmacists Association Student Chapter. When I’m not being awarded “Brother with the Most Kappa Psi Spirit” back home, I’m playing online videogames, overindulging in ice cream, or biking along the lakefront. My greatest (and only) talent is reciting every Taylor Swift lyric ever written.
My favorite part of being a Kappa Psi Brother is having the opportunity to meet and learn lessons from Brothers from all over the country, like my fellow Leadership Ambassadors; and Ritual of course! See you at Province!
