Alumni Perspective on the Importance of Lambda Chi Membership
Why was Lambda Chi important to me in 1965 and even today in my retirement years? I list the following reasons to answer the question:
First, active brothers continue to emphasize the motto: NAUGHT WITHOUT LABOR. Such a practice will assure a brother's success at Wake and in life.
Second, in 1965, there was an emphasis on good grades. This emphasis continues today. In fact, Theta Tau continues to lead all the on-campus Greeks in grade point average. These high grades spell future job search success for brothers. Also, who can ever forget how fellow brothers are always there to help a brother with a tough subject?
Third, Lambda Chi creates instant friendships that will become life-long brothers and usually future contacts for the job market.
Fourth, the fraternity provides great social opportunities. Brothers develop close personal friendships through the fraternity projects on and off campus. These projects, as well as tailgate parties, create a strong sense of camaraderie.
Fifth, Lambda Chi emphasizes the development of leadership skills. During my time at Wake, my brothers occupied key campus positions of leadership in campus organizations. Today the present brothers continue to hold down significant campus leadership in some of those same organizations.
Fellow brothers, what are some of your more memorable days as a Lambda Chi? Consider writing some of them down and sending them to Theta Tau Alumni Association for future Taukers.
