Why Did I Go Greek?
I knew right out of high school I wanted to join a fraternity. I loved the close friendship that my friends and I had on the track team, and wanted to replicate that same experience in college. I joined for the close-knit brotherhood, and got so much more out of it than I expected. My grades went up, I got more involved on campus, and I met so many great people.
Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and rush. There is a group of guys out there that you fit in with, you just have to find the right one. I rushed almost a dozen fraternities freshmen year because I wanted to make sure I was making the right decision. Don't get discouraged because you don't like the ones you checked out. Just rush some more fraternities!
