We’re back at it with Phi of the Week! This week we are recognizing brother #664 Austin Jon Hassebroek! Austin was chosen this week due to his hard work as Secretary. Austin had not held a position before and took on the task of an Executive Board position and has excelled! He has been posting minutes to OrgSync weekly and has been printing out agendas for each member prior to each chapter meeting and has done a great job of being the record keeper for Phi Delta Theta.
Austin is from Shakopee, Minnesota and is in his sophomore year at Minnesota State University, Mankato pursuing a degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Marketing. As stated earlier, he currently holds the position of Secretary. He likes to eat oatmeal with milk, peanut butter, cinnamon, and bananas. His favorite movie and actress are Step Brothers and Jennifer Lawrence respectively. His favorite color is red. He loved his vacation to Ixtapa and Zihuatnejo, Mexico and his favorite song is “Are We Faded” by Keys n Krates. Austin maintains fantastic grades posting 4.0 GPAs on very consistent basis. He’s been on the Deans’s List several times and this can reflected to the fact that he had perfect attendance from the 3rd grade to his Senior year of high school.
Austin decided to join Phi Delta Theta because of his involvement with Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts when he was younger. He said, “Through learning important life lessons and how to build strong character, I look back at Boy Scouts as one of the best choices I could made for my earlier years.” He continued on to relate the Scouts to Greek Life, “Learning of Greek Life through friends, I knew that it would fill the friendship, discipline, and leadership that I once had in Boy Scouts. I was eager to continue to learn important skills into adulthood, as well as establishing long lasting friendships.” Austin truly has a grasp on what it means to be a member of Phi Delta Theta and we know he will continue to be one of our most outstanding members.
