“I work for Pi Kappa Phi Properties because as an undergraduate student, I experienced first-hand the value of growth that occurs in the fraternity house. My passion for the housed fraternity experience stems from the lifelong friendships I gained and the skills I learned outside of the classroom and inside the walls of 110 South Campus Avenue. Each brother of Pi Kappa Phi who has the opportunity to live in their chapter house should. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity!”

“While working with college students for 20 years, I have learned that the college years for young men are the most formative years of their life.  I also believe Fraternity housing offers the most meaningful experiences for co-curricular learning and engagement; a student living in a chapter house, for any period of time, places himself at the center of a dynamic learning laboratory of life that compliments his academic pursuits. Fraternity housing advances the Greater Fraternity’s goal of bettering the individual and it is my sincerest hope that supporting this goal will start members down the path of bettering themselves and, hopefully the aspects of all of our futures, through their positive impact after graduation, thus changing the world! “

I chose to return to work at Pi Kappa Phi because of the great admiration I have for this organization.  Pi Kappa Phi Properties has been an intricate part of my life for 38 years, and I have seen the impact that fraternity housing has had on the growth and maturity of young men across this country.
