On behalf of one of the nation’s strongest and most vibrant Greek communities, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the University of Southern California’s Interfraternity Council.
Coming to USC, I really had no idea what to expect from the experience. I decided to rush my first semester just to see if Greek life was right for me, not knowing if I was going to continue with the process. I ended up meeting a ton of great guys during rush week and decided to join after I was offered a bid. A few weeks after that, I was elected Pledge Class President and between then and now, I have held numerous other leadership positions in my house. Two years have gone by and I now write this to you as President of the Interfraternity Council, the result of a process that was set in motion by a simple decision to rush.
During my three years in Greek life I have had the opportunity to surround myself with brilliant innovators, talented students, and future business and political leaders. While this may sound a little cheesy, it is nothing short of the truth. Leaders all over campus are members of the Greek community; people that value education, engage in philanthropy, and are the go-getters that bring USC to the next level.
By now, you have most certainly heard of the Trojan family: the network of Trojans who will be there for you and support you unconditionally. Greek life is the epitome of this family, being itself a closely knit community thriving within the Trojan family. I feel exceptionally privileged to have had the opportunity to be a part of and give back to this family and I’m excited to see what my last year and a half at this incredible institution has in store for me. The Greek community truly has so much to offer to anyone willing to find it, so I encourage you to come out and rush!
