If you were to approach me three years ago and tell me I will pledge a fraternity in college, I most likely would have laughed in your face in the politest way possible; however, now I can honestly say that pledging Sigma Nu has been the best decision of my college career. Despite coming to Charleston with a fairly sizable safety net, I roomed with my best friend since 1st grade and my grandparents are twenty minutes away in Summerville, I decided to rush. When I met the brothers of Sigma Nu I came to realize that they had the same ambitions and values that I did and still do, and even though they might seem homogeneous to the outsider, they are actually very diverse. Greek life has since given me opportunities I never could have imagined. For the first time I was a member of a completely member run organization, and I whether I liked it or not, I was thrust in feet first. Being required to lead my peers with minimal adult support is one of the hardest things I’ve had to do, but I have learned more from it than any other outside the classroom experience. As I became a brother of Sigma Nu I was simultaneously welcomed as a member of the Greek community in which I have made countless friends and had irreplaceable experiences. Essentially, my Greek story one of taking a chance and being rewarded exponentially.
