“Joining Gamma-Rho changed me forever and I will never forget the brotherhood I experienced. It was clear when I rushed that Kappa Sigma was different. It was a diverse set of brothers that came together to support each other and push each other to be better. The brothers promised a unique experience and they did not disappoint. The ability to serve in leadership positions gave me confidence and experiences that helped propel me in my career. I still try to live by the Star and Crescent and push our watch words of diligence and commitment on to my team at work. I am better off having joined Gamma-Rho and am forever grateful.”"
