Mentorship: Effective Networking
Alex Hein, Purdue '15

In life, you are told networking is a key to success. I only partially agree with that statement. With networking, you will make valuable connections. However, expanding on networking and actively seeking mentorship will lead you to valuable bonds. I have had five different mentors since coming to college, some in the professional world and some in the academic world. I will expand on how they have shaped me into a more well-rounded individual and how they have led me to become a successful person.




Education: How to Teach Our Principles
Matt Panzano, Florida '11

Delta Upsilon has a message to spread across the globe: "This is what a fraternity man should be and how they should act." Every brother has been taught the Principles of our Fraternity, but not everyone applies them to everyday life. As DU men, it is our responsibility to constantly teach and practice the Principles as the Founders would have done. But why stop there? In the classroom, I try to instill our Principles into my instruction so that future generations will practice what we consider to be our philosophy of life in the globalized age.





Making the Snooze Button Obsolete
Dale Shanklin, Boise State '15





The Elements of Matter
Mindy Sopher, North Carolina State University

Personal and project significance are things we often question in our daily lives. The worth and value of our fraternity experience is also questioned by others, and even by ourselves. Questioning is good. Evaluation is good. But doing something with that reflection and evaluation is even better! Take a few minutes with Mindy to reflect on significance and value, and then reframe the next steps in your life and in your chapter to make an ever greater impact for the positive.
