Justifying Fraternity

New things to do, new things to see, new things to read, new things to eat, new ways to live. I made a choice 10 years ago, which I have never regretted – the choice to be a fraternity man.

  1. Hey John, this is Graham Taylor, Oregon DU President (we met at UIFI in LA this past summer). I really like what you wrote, and thought it would serve as a good reminder about why we chose to be fraternity men for myself and my brothers. Would you mind if I read it at our next chapter meeting? You can contact me at: gtaylor38@gmail.com

  3. I have been a member of phi Delta Theta since I was a freshman. That means I have been a member for 43 years. I have seen, unfortunately my fraternity go from a brotherhood to a social club. I suppose this is what happens in the over populated liberal country.
