Dan Faill: How can blackouts, sexual assault, and consent impact college students?
We have with us Dan Faill, who was born and raised in Wilmington, North Carolina, where he attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. There he became a founding father of Theta Chi Fraternity. After college, he traveled for Theta Chi as a consultant and ended up attending grad school at the University of the Pacific. He worked at Loyola Marymount in LA and then served as Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Elon University. Dan moved back to the sun and shore of LA to work for the UCLA Alumni Association before following his passions of becoming a full time speaker. So, imagine Brene Brown and George Carlin had a child – that’s his style and approach on stage and I’m here for it.
In episode #149 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Dan was a lock for UNC Wilmington, his journey to becoming a Founding Father at his Theta Chi Fraternity chapter, what it was like working for Theta Chi HQ as a consultant, what it was like working as the Director of Fraternity & Sorority Life at Elon University, how blackouts, sexual assault, and consent can impact college students, how we can learn from our mistakes and “Faill Forward”, what imposter syndrome is and what we can do about it, how chapters can break free of the stereotypes in Greek Life, and the best foodie spots in Los Angeles. Enjoy!
