As the Zeta Psi Associate Chapter at the University of Colorado Boulder looks forward to chartering next fall, they have one word on their minds – momentum. “We’ve got so much to look forward to,” explained Zeta Psi Associate Chapter President Josh O’Leary, Colorado.
“We just recruited our largest class ever, despite the pandemic. We can’t wait to get out there and meet people and show our personalities in ways you can’t online. We’re not going anywhere but up – get ready for big things from us in the future.”
The brothers of the Zeta Psi Chapter all share a similar excitement and drive. You can see their leadership exemplified in their role in helping establish a university-affiliated Interfraternity Council (IFC). Zeta Psi Associate Chapter Vice President, Conner Freiboth, Colorado elaborated, “Our chapter was instrumental in creating an IFC on campus. While I was chapter president, I was very involved and helped shape something beneficial for the campus that let us set a good example as leaders.”
Freiboth collaborated with presidents from other organizations to create an official IFC at Boulder. The first two IFC presidents on campus were Sig Tau brothers (including Freiboth) and members continue to be involved. This kind of engagement and initiative is what helps set Sigma Tau Gamma apart.
When it comes to chartering, O’Leary and Freiboth were both thrilled about what it meant to their young alumni brothers who can come back and share in that experience.
“I’ll be so happy to see our alumni come back to celebrate and see their hard work paid off. They put in the effort and deserve to be recognized for that and celebrate this huge milestone,” O’Leary said.
Freiboth excitedly thought further into the future – “I look forward to coming back in 20-30 years for an alumni event. I want to see this massively successful chapter that is thriving and know we were a part of starting that. That’s what I look forward to most; knowing we were part of building something for so many brothers to come. I can’t wait for that.”
Brothers like Josh and Conner and the rest of the Zeta Psi Associate Chapter are part of a bright young future for Sigma Tau Gamma. Their momentum and motivation push others to succeed and demonstrates that together we endeavor forward. Support the Founders Day Challenge today to ensure chapters, just like the brothers of Colroado Boulder, can continue to build noble generations of men.
