What concerns did you have when your son told you he was thinking of joining a fraternity?
I was concerned that he would spend too much time "hanging out" and not do his studies.

How have those concerns changed since that time?
Yes. He has done fine. Now that he has started his 3rd year I noticed how well he manages his time.

In your opinion, what is the most impressive aspect of KDR?
The way the brothers look out for each other. We were invited to the parent dinner last year and it was truly wonderful to hear stories from the members. You are a great group of young men.

How has KDR added to your son’s college experience?
There are many more opportunities to participate that are not "just hanging out". The dance a thon and the many philanthropic events that take place throughout the year show how to have fun, be social, and bring awareness and raise money for a good cause.

Have you seen positive changes in your son since joining KDR? If so, what are they?
Yes. He is better able to manage time. He participates in many activities, has a job, holds an office in his fraternity and still has a good GPA.

What would you say to other parents who were in your shoes?
Young men can get into trouble and may not do what they are supposed to do with our without being part of a fraternity. At least with the brothers at KDR the upper class-men set examples of what needs to be done to be a success in college and how to maintain that after graduation. They have a wonderful support system to help with studies and teach responsibilities. As a parent I know I have done my best to get him to college the rest is up to him. Being part of KDR is part of his college experience.

What concerns did you have when your son told you he was thinking of joining a fraternity?
I was concerned that it would be a 'party' fraternity, mostly focused on drinking and not on school.

How have those concerns changed since that time?
Yes, I now know the guys at KDR try to instill responsibility and growth and encourage good grades and volunteerism/awareness of social issues.

In your opinion, what is the most impressive aspect of KDR?
One of the most impressive is the fact that they are all like brothers and there to help each other when needed.

How has KDR added to your son’s college experience?
I believe it has increased their self-awareness, given them opportunities for leadership and community service, as well as a place to belong on campus and a 'family' outside of their own family.
