I am very proud and happy to be a brother of Psi Upsilon, Phi Nu chapter at Christopher Newport. The organization has given me so many of my greatest friends and memories that will last a lifetime. We had our final chapter meeting of the year. If you’re unfamiliar, chapter is what Greek organizations call their weekly meetings wherein they discuss social, philanthropy, fundraising and other function plans as well as any other kind of update or opportunity that is coming in the near future.
Though, it’s also a time to bond and all be together in the same place for one time a week without fail. This week, we also had committee elections and so we elected new leaders for all of our positions. The new public relations chair, which was my position this semester, was given to one of our newly initiated brothers and I was really excited to see him take on a leadership role. In fact, for the first time ever, the majority of our committee head positions were given to newly initiated members. It’s awesome to see the new guys getting after it and already making a huge impact on our fraternity.
Though, my favorite part of chapter when we do “proud to be a brother.” This is at the end of chapter when every brother tells a story, funny or serious, and ends it with “proud to be a brother.” It’s great to have an open forum to share your thoughts and feelings every week to your closest friends. I’ll miss going to chapter every week, as I’m sure all the brothers and sisters of Greek organizations will, but I know all of my brothers will be waiting for me next semester as soon as we get back!
