The Path to Brotherhood

Broken down into a multiple week program, the Path to Brotherhood is a New Member education program that teaches the values and history of our fraternity and allows each new member to learn at his own pace. The program is organized into natural 18-22 minute chunks, leaving each New Member free to divide each week’s total content into the number and length of sessions that most easily fits his schedule. During regularly scheduled meetings, your New Member Educator will have the opportunity to maximize face-to-face time through discussion on the topics learned that week. Rather than spending time recreating lessons, quizzes, or meeting agendas, the New Member Educator will be free to focus instead on integrating New Members into their University’s Greek Life system while helping them develop relationships with the unique Brothers, traditions, and customs of your chapter.
