“When I first decided to rush and chose Tau Kappa Epsilon, I truly did not know what I was getting into. The first things to reveal themselves were leadership opportunities such as Executive Board or a Chairman of a Committee in the chapter. Having to manage a group of men and be accountable for the success or failure was truly a much-needed wakeup call and something that was necessary for the snowballing effect of small wins that were to come. Although there is much work ahead, the focus of our chapter is to constantly evaluate how we can be better.”

“I believe that the Collegiate Advisory Committee serves an extremely important role in better connecting the Grand Chapter with the realities of current fraternal life across TKE Nation. After having the privilege to attend the New York Regional Leadership Conference, Leadership Academy XXXV, and the 61st Conclave all in the same year, I have come to gain not only a greater appreciation for the International Fraternity, but an understanding of the fact that I can truly have an impact on the Fraternity as a whole.”
