Having pledged Phi Mu in the fall of 1963, I can truly say that making the decision to be Greek was a life-changing one. The College was, of course, still the very small campus and student body with everyone knowing their classmates. However, a need was still present to have a home, a shared bond, friendship on a deeper level, encouragement to succeed academically. So, these were all the things I thought I needed and did receive as a Greek at the College of Charleston. More importantly, however, my undergraduate Greek life began the finishing school of life for me. Throughout my collegiate experience, I began to develop leadership skills while learning how to work with many types of personalities. My professional, volunteer and personal successes are all directly attributable to my Greek experiences at the College of Charleston.
