The Men of Kappa Pi of Sigma Nu

Why join a fraternity?

It is not unusual to hear a fraternity man credit his chapter for contributing more to his education than the classes he attended at college. Why?

As a new student to Cal Poly, you are no doubt being hit with a barrage of information about the wide variety of experiences that college life has to offer. Spend as much time as possible reading and evaluating this information, the things that you will learn are not a fabrication, and if you’re serious about making the most of college and life, you will find them important.

A lot of students attend Cal Poly with backgrounds as far-ranging as you can imagine. You will come into contact with many different students in your classes and some you will develop friendships with. You will also get a first-class education inside of the classroom from quality faculty. However, you will do your greatest learning outside the classroom, and you will develop lifelong friendships with those you meet in organizations.

And guess what? It is these things that the Greek system is best at helping develop. It is these abilities, this learning outside of the classroom that makes the Greek system what it is. By banding together as a group of individuals with common objectives, an atmosphere is fostered where leadership, communication, conflict management, and interpersonal skills are demanded. Out of this need springs learning, adapting, and personal growth. Fraternity life, above all the many other benefits it offers, gives you practice for life in the real world.

So, when you hear a fraternity man credit his success to his fraternity…believe him!
