I came to the U of A from Calgary knowing only a handful of people. Hesitant to get involved with unfamiliar organizations, I tackled university alone. Luckily though, one night I was invited to hang out with one of my old friends from Calgary and with him was a group of Fijis. Immediately I was talking to these men I had never met before just as if we had been friends for years. I immediately clicked with this group of people and they soon showed me how much more there is to a fraternity than what I’d seen in the movies. After witnessing how involved this group was in the community and how much it had to offer I decided to pledge to Fiji. I didn’t know it at the time, but this came to be the moment that would define my university experience. Within a month I knew more people then I was able to count and was still amazed as I continued to learn about all the benefits that came with joining Fiji.
It amazes me each time I see how fifty or so dedicated men are able to come together to help out each other and their communities. Our chapter offers weekly study nights with the goal of pushing ourselves academically to achieve marks that illustrate our full potential. There are also monthly community service events as well as graduate member events to maintain strong relationships with our graduates from all the years this chapter has been running. There are even sporting events that are fun for players of all abilities.
I have switched my degree several times since I started university, but never once have I questioned my decision to join this fraternity. If you have other questions about our fraternity you can find more information on our website or please feel free to send a message to me personally.
