Austin graduated in May of 2018 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry from California State University, Fresno. His ultimate goal is to begin a career path in the medical field as a physician. Throughout his time in college, he had many great experiences that included being a D1 student athlete on the track and field team as a pole vaulter, being a member of the Archery Club sports team, working three and a half years in the emergency department at the local hospital as a medical scribe, and best of all, being a brother of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity.
Austin’s journey with Phi Delta Theta started in Fall of 2016, the beginning of his senior year in college. He took on roles as fundraiser chairman, chorister, brotherhood chairman, and recruitment chairman. The only college regret Austin has is that he didn’t join Phi Delta Theta sooner!
When he’s not working, studying, or at the gym, Austin enjoys spending his free time with his friends and brothers, going on spontaneous adventures, deep conversations, and long walks on the beach.
Austin will be working with:
- Kansas Iota – Fort Hays State University
- Ohio Alpha – Miami University
Advice For Young Phis:
Through my experience in Phi Delta Theta, I’ve learned many things. Examples include that you get out what you put into the Fraternity, and if you want change, you have to be up for the challenge to make it happen. My chapter defiantly wasn’t the most successful and my time as an active member wasn’t easy, but I put a lot of hard work that helped me grow intellectually as an individual and helped change my chapter in a positive direction. If your chapter is struggling, don’t complain about it, do something about it!
