Why did you join AXP?

I connected really well with the other brothers joining AXP in my year and thought it was a great way to expand my circle of friends, as I had not really known anyone in the fraternity very well prior to joining.

What has been your best fraternity memory to date?

While this isn't necessarily a memory per se, my favorite memories of AXP so far have been the moments sitting outside of the house, catching up with brothers and talking.

You spent two semesters abroad. Tell us more about your experiences.

I spent the second semester of my sophomore year studying abroad at HEC Paris in France. I then also interned in Paris over the summer and lived in the city there. I then went straight from Paris to Santiago, Chile, where I spent the first semester of my junior year. There, I stayed with a host family, which was an amazing experience.

How did your time in AXP prepare you for your time abroad?

I think when studying abroad, it is very important to be outgoing, as you always need to be ready to meet new people. I think AXP definitely prepared me for that through events where it is important to get to meet brothers very well in a very short period of time.

I understand you speak four languages. What are they, and how/when did you learn them? How have they been helpful to you during your college career?

I grew up bilingual, speaking German and English from a young age. Later, in high school, I started learning both French and Spanish. I continued this throughout college and then studied abroad in France and Chile, working on improving these languages shorter.

Are you involved with any other activities or organizations on campus?

This year, I am on the board of the Penn German Club and the Chair of the Huntsman Student Advisory Board

In your opinion, what makes AXP stand apart from other Penn fraternities?

For me, AXP stands out from other fraternities on campus because of its members. The brothers of AXP are great people, who are a lot of fun to be around.

Why are you proud to be a member of AXP?

I'm proud to be a part of such a long tradition, and I'm proud to know that there are a group of people who will always have my back and I will always have theirs.

How do you plan to stay connected with Phi Phi Chapter as an alum?

To be honest, I'm quite bad at planning that far in advance. I think it will be post important for me to stay in contact with my pledge class, and I would hope to do that through regular events, such as Homecoming.

What are your plans/goals after graduation?

Short term, I believe I would like to go into consulting, but I'm still quite unsure regarding long term professional or personal goals
