10 years ago today, I accomplished one of my great goals in college. I became president of the Bowling Green State University Interfraternity Council (IFC). When I was elected, there were 16 fraternities and a few hundred fraternity men.
When I was in college, I loved being in a fraternity. They’re still the memories of college I most cherish (let’s face it, I certainly didn’t love college for the classes and homework.) It was being part of something, having a group of brothers – many of whom, I’m still close to.
I still remember the first time I ever talked to Johnnie. He was helping plan a philanthropy for his fraternity, and he called me after I had volunteered to do stand up comedy at the event. He was so enthusiastic, that I had a hard time understanding him. Johnnie had never heard my routine before, but he was so excited and complimentary that he made me feel like I was Jerry Seinfeld, or some other famous comedian.
