Remember that old cliche they would tell you as you were choosing a sorority or fraternity that ultimately would alter your life. It went something like this… “it’s not four years, it’s for life.” Well that cliche may not have been so cliche at all. As many members from our Fraternity and Sorority Life prepare for life post-graduation, we asked some to reflect upon their time with us here at Missouri State.
“Being a part of FSL has had a huge impact not only on developing the person I am today but shaping the person I want to be. Being constantly surrounded by genuine individuals that are truly seeking the best out of each day has kept me not only motivated but given me aspirations that I did not even know that I had. This experience reinforced the values that I already had but most importantly gave me new ones that I didn’t know that I had and gave me the foundation for my college career. This experience constantly drives me to be a better person and help not only the FSL community but the one around me too.”
-Katie Holsapple, Alpha Delta Pi, Speech-Language Pathology Major
“My FSL experience has, without a doubt, changed my college experience for the better. It’s so reassuring to have a group of men who hold me accountable and encourage me to be the best version of myself every single day. By being a member of this community, I’ve gotten better grades and built relationships that will continue to last beyond my time here at Missouri State. I’ve strengthened my leadership capabilities, developed skills, and experienced uncommon opportunities through my involvement in Pi Kapp.”
-Noah Hendel, Pi Kappa Phi, Marketing: Advertising and Promotions Major
“Joining FSL allowed me to believe in myself throughout the past 4 years and give me a support system to make it through some of the tough moments of college. Without FSL, I would not have made as many connections as I have made or joined many of the organizations that I did. I was lucky enough to join FSL and fall even more in love with Missouri State.”
-Brittany Boyer, Delta Zeta, Biology Major
