I rushed Triangle the first opportunity that I got, so fall semester of my freshman year. To put it simply I joined because I figured it was practical and I liked the guys that I had met to that point.

Several of them would come to hold the same title as I do now and one of them is my fraternal big brother. I knew next to nothing about Greek Life and what is had to offer or entailed; but if I was going to spending my time with these guys and turn out to be like them when I reached upperclassmen status I knew it would be worth it because they had their shit together.
