Brother Spotlight: Daniel Gushin

This is the first installment of the Brother Spotlights for the 2014-2015 school year. Today’s feature is Brother Daniel Gushin, a sophomore initiated in the Lambda class.

Why did you join SAE?

I joined because I wanted a group of friends to last a lifetime, and a group of people who could help me better myself.  I think that it truly makes the campus feel smaller and contributed to creating the college experience I had envisioned for myself.

What’s your major and intended career path?

I am a undecided major in the Kelley School of Business with a minor in psychology.  Even thought I am undecided, I think a career in consulting is something I would find interesting.

Are you involved inside and outside of the fraternity?

I am on the housing and scholarship committees within the house, and outside of the fraternity, I am most involved with the IU Bowling Team.

How has bowling for IU affected you?

Joining the bowling team has been a solely positive experience.  It has created a competitive outlet for me, an enjoyable game to play for the rest of my life, and it keeps me in shape for intramural season.

What areas have SAE improved on since your initiation?

I think that SAE’s presence on campus has grown through the increase in the Gamma chapter’s size, and the chapter member involvement around campus.

I also asked Daniel some fun, supplemental questions.

2014 Fall Initation of Indiana Gamma Mu Class

SAE Group PhotoOn September 21st, 2014, Indiana Gamma initiated its first class since the creation of the True Gentleman Experience.  The class is the third group to be initiated since the chapter took residence in our current home on North Jordan Avenue.

Mu class has 27 new members, including young men from Texas, New York, California, Tennessee, Missouri, Connecticut, Texas, Illinois, and Delaware.  There are two sophomores and one junior in the class, with the rest being freshmen.  The lone junior member of the class, Femi Hollinger-Janzen, is also a starting forward for the Indiana University soccer team.

The new True Gentleman Experience requires SAE chapters to initiate members within 96 hours of their signing.  After a productive Fall Rush that also featured Indiana University’s first-ever formal rush process, Indiana Gamma initiated our first class of the True Gentleman Experience era.  We look forward to moving forward with our new brothers.
