• What is your greatest hope for your son?

    He graduates —
    He graduates with honors —
    He grows up happy —
    He is respected by his peers —
    He continues the legacy which you've prepared him for —

    What is your biggest fear for your son?

    He skips class —
    He gets hurt or in trouble with the law —
    He's disrespectful to others —
    He abuses the opportunities that you've given him —

    Let's face it; college can be the fork in the road where hopes and fears meet; short-term pleasure and temptations often compete with the path of opportunities and success.

    Your list of hopes for your son probably didn't include being a "frat guy." Well it isn't on the top of our list either. Being a "frat guy" is easy — but being a "Fraternity Man" is the road less-traveled.

    We realize that 18- to 22-year-old males usually don't need much guidance how to have fun — it comes naturally. But we do realize that leadership, morals, dealing with people, defining achievement all take a little more planning, thought, and guidance.

    Please take the time to research our values, history and mission. See if it aligns with your family's values and hopes for your son.
