Brother William Xu from RIT was quoted in a Wall Street Journal article. Will highlights the work of NAPA, and in consequence, the work of Pi Delta Psi to break stereotypes of “frats” and uphold the values of a “fraternity.” Excerpted from the article:
It’s something that concerns the leadership of organizations like NAPA, whose goal is to encourage Asian American frats to emphasize personal bonding, self-empowerment and community service. “What would our fraternities be like if they detached themselves from the culture of ‘frat boys,’ if they treated their letters as a business suit rather than a party hat?” says Will Xu, NAPA national secretary. “That’s a question all of us ask every day, and we apply policies to our chapters to reflect it. We’re actively working to evolve the mindset of our members to understand that moments of celebration are extracurricular to their responsibilities and oath as a Greek.”
