It is a privilege to be in UNT Greek Life, although it took me a while to realize this. During my first semester at UNT the thought of fraternity made me cringe, but with the help of a future brother it changed my outlook on Greek Life forever. Once I entered Greek Life I realized that the word “frat” was more than just a negative stereotype. I realized that four-letter word stands for something greater. It stands for fraternity. It stands for a brotherhood bound together by a common loyalty, which transcends any personal selfishness; a loyalty that dates back to the times of our founders.
During my term I want to attempt to change that word “frat” to fraternity at the University of North Texas. My executive board and I will implement tools designed to bring success to the Interfraternity Council and break the negative stereotype that burdens Greek Life. My goal as President will be to always lead with honor. I will leave a legacy that will never be forgotten. UNT Greek Life has forever changed me, and I will change UNT Greek Life forever.
