Dr. Seuss was Greek

I just wanted to jump in here and say hello to my friends and brothers at Sigma Phi Epsilon–Wisconsin ThetaSigEp is an outstanding fraternity based on the ideal of a balanced man and promoting the core values of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love.  They seek to undo the negative stereotyping associated with many fraternities, which was the reason I agreed to serve as the Faculty Adviser for the WI-Theta chapter when I worked at UW-Platteville.  The men there made me proud, dedicating themselves to a fully balanced college experience, focusing on scholarship, fitness, service, and genuine brotherhood.  I felt privileged to serve as their adviser, and when I left to move overseas, the men did me the further honor of inducting me as a Renaissance Brother as a sign that I had modeled the values they hold dear.

Why do I mention this here?  Because Theodor Seuss Geisel, our beloved Dr. Seuss, was himself a SigEp, from Dartmouth (class of 1925), and today is the Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
