Zach Westerbeck Interview on Mental Health

Check out this interview I did today with Zach Westerbeck, one of the Greek University speakers, as he discusses mental health on college campuses. His talk, called “Understanding Mental Health – Breaking the Stigma and Freeing Those Suffering in Silence”, has been helping fraternity and sorority members openly talk about these issues and get help for those in need. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jq_Cb20rEEM

Fraternity Foodie: UC Berkeley

I worked with the new members of the IFC Fraternities at UC Berkeley on Monday. We talked about Hazing Prevention, Sexual Assault Prevention, and Alcohol/Drug Abuse Prevention, as well as their role in creating a safe campus environment.   Before heading over to Berkeley, I had lunch with a chapter brother at The Ramen Bar (101 California St, San Francisco, CA 94111). They serve outstanding Tokyo style ramen noodles (pictured here is the Chicken Ramen). I also tried the Tuna Poke Bowl and it was super fresh and tasty. I stayed in Oakland (close to the airport), so before catching a plane back to Nashville, I decided to stop into the Oakland Grill (301 Franklin St, Oakland, CA 94607). Check out this tasty treat: The Crab Cake Benedict. Fantastic!

Fraternity Foodie: AFLV Central in Indianapolis

AFLV Central this year certainly did not disappoint. The keynote presentation from Vice President Joe Biden was certainly one of the big attractions. Over 3,700 fraternity and sorority leaders were in attendance to hear Joe Biden talk about Sexual Assault Prevention and the #ItsOnUs campaign. As VP Biden said, “The only way we are going to change the culture is if we all take a stand.”
