Why Epsilon Gamma?

You already know the impact Greek life has—because you lived it. The term ‘social fraternity’ might give the impression that the Greek experience is superficial. But research shows that personal connections and friendships are the key to happiness.  

These lifelong relationships are only part of what makes the fraternity experience so transformational. From our career trajectories to our family’s values, our Epsilon Gamma experience played a key role. Our experiences helped make us into the people we are today.  

Here is an eBook of some of the best responses to recent a survey of Greek communities across the country. These quotes illustrate why Greek life is and will remain a key part of the higher education experience. Click HERE to read the eBook and keep reading to see what Epsilon Gamma members had to say. 


“For me, I would say thank you for the bond of brothers that created a family like atmosphere. During that time at Epsilon Gamma, you really did become brothers to one another. We lived like brothers. There was competition at the drop of hat, we had arguments that proved to be sillier than substantial, a concern for each other and what was going on in each of our lives, and food. All of this combined to make my time at WSU feel like a family of brothers that I never had.” - Roy Barskey ‘80 

Epsilon Gamma is where I got to know four brothers very well who even today, 56 years later, are among my best friends. In addition, my wife and I were married during our senior year and are still married after 53 years. - Rich Axlund ‘63 

“My Delt experience was awesome and really brought me out of my shell. One of my favorite memories always happened about this time of the year. DTD impacted my life with lifelong friendships. “Friends for life” is an understatement when it comes to these guys and their families. As we go through life many things change, but one thing you can always count on is your Brothers—they will always be there for you.” - Jeff Shreves ’78 

“I loved my Delt experience. I made many friendships I wouldn't otherwise have made. I developed leadership and organizational skills, and most importantly, I had the time of my life. Also, there are great networking prospects when you're always part of the organization, even after college. I grew substantially in terms of my leadership, organizational skills, time management, and my drive to succeed and push myself. I'm proud of and thankful for the great times I had as a current member.” - Joe Wyatt ’07
