As you all know, I was involved with pledging for two straight years. This was the first semester that I was on the outside looking in. It was a lot of fun to see pledging from a new perspective. After I passed all my information on to Abby and Maria, I sat back and enjoyed the ride. I love pledging, but I have to say that extra two hours on Wednesday nights is really nice.
For the first time ever, I was able to get a little! Shout out to Nicole! She is great and I could not have asked for anyone better to be my one and only little in APO. I have a whole new perspective of the big little process. It is difficult job as the Pledge Guide and honestly caused me the most stress because there is so much pressure to make the perfect match. As a brother the whole experience is a lot of fun. You get to talk to all the pledges and do fun things with them. The big little reveal is so much more fun sitting in the chairs waiting for your little to find you! I could talk about this forever so I will move on…
It has been so much fun to watch all of my pledges grow in the fraternity. You have all done an amazing job and are taking on positions that I know you will excel at! All 59 of you (although some graduated) have taught me lessons that I will keep with me forever. You are all amazing and I cannot imagine my Penn State or APO experience without you. For all of you new pledges, I am confident that Abby and Maria feel the same way!!
