Delta Speaks Out - From A Man to A Leader
I graduated high school in the spring of 2013, and for the first time I moved out of the house and lived by my own. Most of my friends went to different universities, so I didn’t know that many people at Georgia State University. However, a brother of Delta Epsilon Psi South Asian Fraternity Incorporated approached me during the beginning of fall semester of 2013, and invited me to come to some of the rush events to see whether I would be interested in the Fraternity and fellow brothers. Before going to rush week, I never knew that this this week would bring a major change in rest of my college experience, and possibly, the rest of my life.
Towards the end of fall 13, I became one of the newest member of the Alpha Gamma Colony of Delta Epsilon Psi, and the feeling was priceless! It has been a whole semester since I have become a brother of Delta Epsilon Psi, and it’s difficult to believe how much I have experienced and matured personally. I have become more dedicated towards assisting and helping others and less fortunate through the many opportunities provided by this fraternity.
A few weeks ago, Alpha Gamma Colony at GSU held a bone marrow drive for a 10 year old Json Walker, who was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. By the age of 10, Json Walker went through 8 surgeries, and his only chance to survive was to find someone that can be a match for a bone marrow transplant. The bone marrow drive brought in a huge crowd and it turned out that one of my line brothers became a match. Noticing the influence that Delta Epsilon Psi brought in Json’s life and the hope of his survival was a life changing event for myself. It inspired me to purse a career in the medical field so I could create a similar influence on others for the rest of my life. This is one of the many other wonderful experiences I was able to serve my community.
For instance, Delta Epsilon Psi Alpha-Gamma Colony has adopted a highway near Georgia State University, called ‘The Lion’s Den’. Every member of Alpha Gamma goes there and serve the community by cleaning the highway, picking up trash, and plating small trees and plants. Delta Epsilon Psi has change me in ways that I never thought it would. This fraternal organization has taught me that Greek Life is not just about social events and parties, but great place to learn about life, business, leadership skills, lifelong relationships and bonds, and much more.
Through Delta Epsilon Psi, I have gained a strong sense of brotherhood, and leadership. The events held by the fraternity or the ones we have participated in have helped me break out of my shell and become more social and productive with the people I meet and in my daily life. Also, I have met my closest friends/family through all the time I spend with my brothers during brotherhood events, which allows brothers from a chapter to hang out and do something fun. This organization has affected me by tapping into leadership qualities that I wasn’t aware resides within myself and allowed me to take control of any situation that requires my assistance. Delta Epsilon Psi has made me a better man; it truly has changed me from a man into a strong, genuine, intelligent, and discipline leader.
following articles are written by the Heart of Alpha class, Alpha Gamma colony, Anish "RIGHTEOUS" Patel. The articles are the projections of his feelings towards the idea of fraternity and how well it has worked out for him.
Delta Speaks Out
Being a part of Delta Epsilon Psi Fraternity, Inc. is not about wearing the tags or letters but the distinctiveness that the individual brings to the organization. This fraternity is not a party organization but a service one along with being socially active with other organizations. Every brother in the past and present has contributed their time and effort towards their continuous pursuit of the significant pillars of Brotherhood, Discipline, and Commitment for a prominent reputation. Joining this organization shouldn’t be about showboating oneself but the asset of better improving themselves. Ever since 1998, Delta Epsilon Psi Fraternity, Inc. has perpetuated a prestige reputation and now continues onward with that stature with the newly addition of the Alpha Gamma Colony.
On June 22nd, 2012 few men achieved great prominence into the world of Delta Epsilon Psi, Inc. and Greek Life of the Georgia State University. Alpha Gamma Colony is part of the highly honored Multicultural Greek Council. With many goals in mind, these men accomplished a feat of obstacles to gain what Delta Epsilon Psi Fraternity, Inc. had to offer. Each and every brother of Alpha Gamma is motived not only in education but also in everything they do. Having such enthusiasm, this colony will be built off a strong foundation and having everything else to be built off that. Being the first South Asian Fraternity on campus, it will be pressure less for these men because of the various proven backgrounds they have brought with them to the colony, which will exhibit a determination to make a difference on campus and in the community.
Going an extra step not only helps but also shows a reasonable amount of honor towards your character by others. Giving back to the community is something that is expected for just about everyone in the world, but in this organization brothers want to do that. From feeding homeless to packing books to be shipped off to Africa are just some things that Alpha Gamma does. Helping out at each brother’s temple or church was something that the brothers took time out for. Alpha Gamma is not about just giving back to the community but building relationships when carrying out that deed. Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is an official philanthropy partner of Delta Epsilon Psi Fraternity, Inc. Alpha Gamma has been working very closely with JDRF, by not just understanding of volunteering by what what’s makes a volunteer. Alpha Gamma has supported bone marrow research by setting up drives at the Shree Shakti Mandir Temple of Atlanta.
Being part of this organization, a vast amount of guidance from brothers can be gained. Individuals require guidance throughout life to better help them gain understanding and knowledge in order to be more successful or to achieve that success. “Be here to work hard, not to play or otherwise move out the way”, is something that Alpha Gamma lives by because of the seriousness and tenacity they hold. Taking each brother as an asset to better improve myself because that each individual possess a certain skill that they can attribute amongst one other. Passing down the same ideals to future brothers not only will promote and expand the organization but also keep the defects out. Instead of shooting for the stars, shoot for the sun is something that should be conceived to the future comers.
Delta Speaks Out
Delta Epsilon Psi Fraternity, Inc. has added a tremendous amount of change in my life. I have transformed into a man that seeks and strives to be successful at everything that it placed in front me. I basically cracked out of an indestructible shell with the help and support of my line brothers and now every brother in the organization. I was not able to socialize with a new comer until now, where I can easily converse with anyone. Being a freshman while joining this organization really helps out in many ways because of huge amount of uncertainty that comes at an early stage in college. The gratuity of having older brothers in the organization is something I look forward to because of their abundance amounts of guidance and consideration.
I was at a point in life where I was in a careless attitude on things because of my transition from high school to college, thinking about how it was going to be easy and all, but I learned life isn’t easy and you have to work hard for everything and by means anything. I learned that earning things in life adds up; as a result some experience integrity or some just gain better life experience. I felt that no one shouldn’t think that they are better than the person next to them but think of them as an asset to better improve themselves because that one person can attribute certain skills than that other. Learning the acquisitions of trust amongst people is particularly important. During the ups and downs in life, this organization exhibits individuals that you could depend on. Going an extra step not only helps but also shows a reasonable amount of honor towards your character by others in which this organization couldn’t stress it any better in the countless hours of community services.
My thoughts and mindset are set on this fraternity from an internal to an external view. Being a part of Delta Epsilon Psi Fraternity, Inc. is not about wearing the tags or letters but the distinctiveness that the individual brings to the organization. This fraternity is not a party organization but a service one along with being socially active with other organizations. Every brother in the past and present has contributed their time and effort towards their continuous pursuit of the significant pillars of Brotherhood, Discipline, and Commitment for a prominent reputation. Joining this organization shouldn’t be about showboating oneself but the asset of better improving themselves. Going an extra step not only helps but also shows a reasonable amount of honor towards your character by others. Being part of this organization, I have gained a vast amount of guidance from brothers around me. Individuals require guidance throughout life to better help them gain understanding and knowledge in order to be more successful or to achieve that success. Having a Big Brother like Pratik Bhakta was essential to my success in this organization because of the negativity he cut down in my perception towards the organization. Pratik told something to think about on my journey into the organization, “Be here to work hard, not to play or otherwise move out the way.” He told me take each brother as an asset to better improve myself because that each individual possess a certain skill that they can attribute amongst one other.
Passing down the same ideals to future brothers not only will promote and expand the organization but also keep the defects out. Being part of a colony that has a working foundation, and having everything else to be built off that, then there is no room for error in passing down the torches to the future. Instead of shooting for the stars, shoot for the sun is something that should be conceived to the future comers. Instill Brotherhood to show how to respect one another and not to downgrade each other’s characters, and to be supportive at any given time. Discipline should exemplify on what is wrong or right for each other and to control worldly things. Commitment will show how an individual will show provision to the organization and to the brothers. Supporting and communicating amongst one other is vital for everyone to stay out of a feeble position. Something that will continuously show up will be presenting understandings before actions unless actions are required as a secondary option.
"Delta Speaks Out - Frat Boy" , is an article describing the thoughts of a hard working student who questioned fraternities. It is written by the Ace of Gamma Class, Justin "ABSOLUTE" Joy.
Delta Speaks Out - Frat Boy
Is a fraternity right for me? This was the one question that lingered in my mind as I debated whether or not I wanted to join a fraternity. The whole notion and stereotype of being a “frat boy” never appealed to me before I entered college. However as my freshman year passed, I was able to experience college and everything it had to offer. Some of my most respected friends I made throughout my freshman year were brothers of Delta Epsilon Psi. This was one of my primary motives for rushing this prestigious fraternity. During the informational meeting I was able to get a grasp of how great of an organization this was and all the opportunities I could be given by becoming a brother. Today I am proud to say that this fraternity has helped improve my character in many facets of my life.
True brotherhood was something that I have yearned for almost all my life. Besides my immediate family, I never had a true friend that I could call my brother until I became a brother of Delta Epsilon Psi. The bond I gained with my line brothers during the pledging process, and the bond was something that I never thought I would have. Pulling all-nighters doing homework, studying, or even just hanging out were some of the greatest times I’ve had engraved in my memory. Once I crossed I was also able to hang out with the other brothers and became close with them as well. The doors of opportunity for success also opened as I was able to meet all different types of people and improve my networking skills. Speaking with brothers from my own colony, and others around the United States have helped me to make connections and learn about different people.
Delta Epsilon Psi is widely recognized as being a prominent service fraternity in the community and has provided me with opportunities to volunteer at places all round Atlanta. Helping out with JDRF events and volunteering at the Safehouse has opened my eyes to those who are in need around me. Even though it is impossible for me to fully express my gratitude towards this fraternity, I am filled with pride and honor to say I am a brother of Delta Epsilon Psi.
This article is a highlight of Joshua "INCINERATE" Mathew's, the Heart of Gamma Class, feelings not just towards this brotherhood, but also towards the positive motives this fraternity's Founding Fathers had about the Greek Life itself as they initiated this network.
Delta Speaks Out
One of the motives that the Founding Fathers of Delta Epsilon Psi had was to change the negative connotations of Greek life. I am grateful every day that I have had the opportunity to join a great organization that has a primary motive to make a difference in the community. It has always been my aspiration to be part of something bigger than myself.
Joining Delta Epsilon Psi has been a great experience and has made a lasting impact on my life. I have learned to take responsibility for my own actions. I have always been the one to make hasty decisions without thinking much about its consequences, but I have witnessed how my actions affect others, especially the ones I love and care about. I have also learned how to manage my time wisely. I have always been the one to procrastinate and does everything last minute, and it has rarely brought me any success in life.
Another great thing about this fraternity is the brotherhood we all share. We are all individuals with different strengths, weaknesses and flaws. However, at the end of the end of the day, we are all able to put that aside and work towards a common goal which is bettering ourselves. I have also noticed that the brothers got my back. This was apparent to me when the brothers thought I got in trouble and were willing to bail me out. I received numerous calls asking if I was well. At that time I realized that no matter how much we mess up in life, our family will be there to pick us back up.
I have also learned how to network with the brothers from other colonies and work with them to accomplish certain projects. Delta Epsilon Psi has helped to become a better leader in society by enhancing my people skills and being able to work well with others. I finally understand the meaning behind “Brothers today, Leaders tomorrow.”
Delta Speaks Out
"Delta Speaks Out - Becoming a Brother of Delta Epsilon Psi" , is written by Bhavin "ZOSIMOS" Patel, the Ace of Beta Class at Alpha Gamma Colony, who shared his thoughts about how he changed after joining a unique brotherhood of Delta Epsilon Psi.
Delta Speaks Out - Becoming a Brother of Delta Epsilon Psi
The process to becoming a member of the Delta Epsilon Psi fraternity had been a long and hard one. Throughout the process I had lots of doubts and questions of whether it would be worth it at the end. However, after becoming an active member of the organization, I realized that it had changed me in many ways. One of the most important changes that came to me was gaining the skill of time management. Learning to manage time has helped me to prioritize my needs from wants. It feels like I have more than 24 hours in the day, because each minute feels like five minutes. Thanks to time management I am able to complete my important task early and still free time to do what I want.
Another way becoming a brother of Delta Epsilon Psi has changed me is that it has made me more of a team player. Before the process, I used to think being a member of team was getting the job done, not matter if person contributes or not. However after the process, I realized that a team is only available if everyone contributes. If everyone contributes to the task at hand it will be easier on everyone else. Another key factor in team works that I learned was trust. In order for there to be team work you have to trust the people and their ability. Before becoming a member of the organization it was really hard for me to trust the people and their work ethics. However during the process of becoming a brother, I realized that there has to be mutual trust between every group member for the best results to appear. The ability to trust does not only work with teams, but also with the brothers about personal matters. Thanks to the organization I have gained a number of people who I can talk to about my personal matters. If I ever have any type of personal problems, I can trust them with the information and get advice from them. They will always be willing to listen and help me to the best of their ability.
Finally and most importantly this organization has helped me to gain confidence in my abilities. Before the start of this intake process I had very little confidence in my ability to complete a task. However, thanks to the members of this organization I have learned to be more confident in my abilities and not question my abilities. The confidence I gained in this process did not only help me with work, but also with the social aspect of life. After joining the fraternity, I learned to converse with people more. I learned that being social is a skill that can get you a lot of place in life. It will give others a good impression of you and how they perceive you. Before the process I would shy away from people and was very reserved, but thanks to this fraternity I have improved that weakness in me.
