Can you imagine what your life would be like if you hadn’t decided to join Phi Mu Delta? What life lessons, friendships, and memories would you have missed out on? Many brothers showed their love for the fraternity by sharing all the reasons they cherish their membership. These are the stories that remind us just how important the fraternity is and prove

In addition, Kappa Lambda was instructed to order four MIP manuals and four protocol books.
It is my desire to become a member of Kappa Lambda Chi Military Fraternity, Inc., to once again have the brotherhood and comradery that I was able to experience while in the Army. Promoting the values, lesson and knowledge I attained during my military service as wells as those set forth in Kappa Lambda Chi’s mission, is something I encourage when mentoring children on daily basis in my job as a school resource officer. My current position allows me to interact with people from all walks of life, providing me with an avenue to inspire those around me. Becoming a member of Kappa Lambda Chi enables me to further my personal knowledge, while being another avenue for me to impart wisdom, promote fidelity and encourage high ambition to today’s youth
At Western Michigan University, there are many micro-cultures. One particular micro-culture I want to belong to is a sorority by the name of Delta Sigma Theta, incorporated. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded on January 13, 1913, 103 years ago, by 22 collegiate women at Howard University to promote academic excellence and provide assistance to those in need. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is the largest African-American Greek-lettered organization. To become a part of this sorority you need to meet the membership requirements. Women may join as undergraduate chapters at a college or university, or through an alumnae chapter after receiving a college degree. There are over 940 chapters over the world, and I’m interested in the Delta
My knowledge of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. is that it was founded January 5th, 1911. The Fraternity was originally chartered under the name Kappa Alpha Nu, which is believed to be in honor the Alpha Kappa Nu club that began in 1903 but was short lived due to few registrants. Kappa Alpha Psi was founded by: Elder Watson Diggs, Ezra Dee Alexander, Byron Kenneth Armstrong, Henry Tourner Asher, Marcus Peter Blakemore, Paul Waymond Caine, George Wesley Edmonds, Guy Levis Grant, Edward Giles Irvin and John Milton Lee. The fraternity was founded on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. has 721 chapters in every state of the United States and has international chapter in various countries such
I am writing this letter to express my interest in your illustrious organization, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I am currently a senior majoring in Criminal Justice, minoring in African American Studies with aspirations of becoming a Social Justice Attorney. Born in the inner city of New York and being raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, I am not your typical Southern Belle or City girl. I like to think of myself as being a fine mix of the two. At a young age my mother groomed me into what she believed a well-rounded lady should be. A woman of substance carries herself eloquently, seeks knowledge in all aspects of life, and understands the importance of philanthropy. All of which characteristics, are thoroughly exemplified in the
I genuinely care about my sorority. I care about our reputation, as well as the safety and well-being of my sisters. Going through rush as a sophomore gave me a unique perspective about joining a sorority. I wasn’t there solely to make friends or go to socials and date nights. I was there to take advantage of everything a sorority had to provide for me at UGA. In Sigma Kappa, I found a sisterhood full of girls who truly are examples of excellence. I remember looking up to Taylor Haynes and even Kat Gillanders for their leadership around campus, and the level with which they carried themselves. I am proud that the girls of Sigma Kappa can walk around UGA without people thinking “look at that trashy sorority girl”. A big role in this is what the Standards Council does. It is important to have a program to steer college students in the right way when they start to go down a negative path. I would like to play a role in holding this standard for all the PC’s to come, so that the Epsilon Epsilon chapter can always be proud of its
“The chief significance of Alpha Phi Alpha lies in its purpose to stimulate, develop, and cement an intelligent, trained leadership in the unending fight for freedom, equality, and fraternity. Our task is endless.” Jewel Henry Arthur Callis. Since its founding Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity has remained loyal to its ideal of providing advocacy for its community. Becoming an Alpha is a life time goal of mine. I would like to become an Alpha because of encounters with other Alpha men, the correlation of Alpha Phi Alpha’s Nationals Projects and My lifetime goals and its Fraternal Brotherhood.
My profile essay is going to be over Delta Sigma Theta Mu Sorority Inc. I will be talking about the history, benefits, and interesting facts. I will be interviewing a sister from the sorority to get personal facts and experiences they have encountered. I will be writing my essay in first person because this is a rather important essay to me. I chose to write about the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. because I am very interested in the history. I have heard many things about the African American Greek life and I want to learn more. I feel that being on campus here at Oklahoma State University, I need to take advantage of the African American organizations offered here in Stillwater. Not just yet, as a freshman, am I going to pledge for anything
I want to join Phi Delta Epsilon because it would provide me the chance to build lifelong connections and gain networking opportunities. Most importantly, I see myself forming a bond with other members, studying and sharing memories of what it’s like to be a premedical student at UMass Boston. The ability to connect, strive for success and learning from others with the same goal to attend medical school is what I’m truly seeking as a hopeful applicant of PhiDE. Joining the fraternity is the beginning phase of my strenuous road to become a successful physician.
My increased desire to become an Alpha Man has been driven by my lifelong history and encounters with many of my past educators that are Alphas. I grew up in a typical underrepresented environment that had a big impact on my everyday life, from drugs, gangs, and a lack of ambition. Somehow that changed when I went to school, there where men in my schools that looked the same as the ones in my community, but the way they dressed and carried themselves was different. I later learned they were men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. These men didn’t come from where I came from, the men I saw in my community didn’t have the drive and determination that these men had. I realized at a young age that I had to be different from my peers and the older males, and that I refused to be a statistic and apart of the cultural norm of drugs and gangs.
The first notable member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated that really sticks out to me is Umzae George Washington Carver. He was initiated in the Gamma Chapter in the year of 1918. To begin I selected him, because he was a very familiar name. I remember learning about Umzae George Washington Carver in the elementary and middle school. With creating over 100 different uses for the peanut, soybean, and sweat potato he was a very prominent African American man in the 1920s. Umzae George Washington Carver was a very intelligent man paving the way for many other great inventors. Also, in regards to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated he was a charter member of the Tuskegee Institute Alumni Chapter. During my research I learned that
I've always taken joy in being a leader. Having the ability to help guide someone in the right direction intrigues me. That's why I would love to have a leadership position in National Junior Honors Society. I'm specifically interested in being the president, but if I don't get it, I would love to fill another position. I promise that if given the opportunity, I will be a responsible, honest, creative, committed, positive, and productive leader. I will also do my best to show good character, leadership, citizenship, service, and scholarship because I know that these qualities are very important for the National Junior Honors Society and that they are also very important to me.
Since being a freshman year here at JMU, I wanted to become a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated for both professional and personal growth reasons. I have always shied away from Greek life because of the stigmas associated with it, however, Zeta has debunked those many of those stigmas by not conforming to the majority. I appreciate that this organization embodies virtues, genuine sisterly love and self-confidence. There is beauty in a group of women using their knowledge to uplift each other, rather than tearing each other down. Membership into Zeta Phi Beta will grant me additional opportunities to educate, love and provide guidance to others; as well as continue my growth in intellect, leadership abilities, confidence and maturity.
