How did you become friends with your friends?
It's kind of tough to remember exactly how, right?
The thing about high school is that a lot of the friendships you make are based on the fact that you're stuck in the same building for eight hours a day for years on end taking the same classes.
In college, you'll be in control of your time and the people you choose to spend time with will stay close for the rest of your life. If you want to get sappy, you can describe it as a journey you embark on together—not because of necessity, but because you all chose to go on it together.
It's a bond you can't get anywhere else and it's the experiences you share along this journey that will make this bond strong. The more experiences, the stronger the bond.
Alejandro Diaz found this out when he joined his fraternity, Sigma Lambda Beta. He's involved with a ton of organizations on campus, from New Student Enrollment to Define American, but his fraternity brothers are the ones he's closest with. And it's because of the experiences they've shared, from the initiation process to volunteering to just hanging out on a Friday night.
Whether it's through the Greek system, through another organization, or through a ragtag group of misfits, you'll forge the same type of close bonds Alejandro has.
Here's Alejandro's story.
