What is the most rewarding part of volunteering for Alpha Sigma Phi?
Working with a young dynamic set of young men who have grown a chapter from a provisional chapter to a 140 member chapter in 4 short years.
How does your service benefit the undergraduates of the Fraternity?
This is best answered by the Former Chapter HSPs but I think that Chapter officers typically use me and the other alumni as sounding boards for their ideas on how to best perform their duties to make a large chapter function effectively.
What advice would you give to an alumnus or parent who is interested in volunteering?
The experience is beyond words and is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a younger generation grow and reason through how to make an all voluntary organization work.
