To JT Oldham, fellowship is, “Friendly association with all, especially those with common interests” He came across this definition at the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI), where he was 1 out of 36 FIJI leaders of thousands across the nation selected to attend. Though he was a friend to all before going Greek, JT explains how he really came to understand fellowship in his leadership roles sophomore year. JT shares that every student on campus has a different voice, and different skills. He says to serve a community to your greatest potential one must draw on lessons learned from all life experiences, and practice them in all aspects, so the diversity of opinion and skill in our community is truly a benefit. It is our common interests as Greeks that unite us in fellowship. JT is no stranger to the interest of the Greek community; he has served his chapter as Historian and New Member Educator, served IFC as parliamentarian and now president, and has attended NGLA twice and is a member of Order of Omega. He makes a point that the community in which he shares interests is not just his chapter, but the whole of Greek life. “Everyday I come to campus I try to be a friend to all in Greek life.” This is why JT truly embodies our Greek core value of fellowship.
