Dante Gleason (born 9 December 1993) is a Collegiate Member of the Zeta Iota Chapter (Chapter roll 91) at Saint Joseph's University.
Early Fraternity Life and Career
Dante never thought of joining any type of fraternity once he arrived at Saint Joe's University. However, after talking with some members of the Alpha class of the Zeta Iota Chapter, he figured he'd apply and see what Phi Sigma Pi has to offer. Nicole Kelbon, Alexia Sparrow, and Michelle Nowak talked him into giving Phi Sigma Pi at least a glance. Nicole sent him the link over Facebook to the Zeta Iota website, and it seemed very different compared to his typical idea of a fraternity. This was enough to get him to send in an application.
After attending the first rush event in Spring 2013, he instantly fell in love with the brothers. The event was Speed Dating, and he noticed something different about the brothers. Not only did they genuinely care to get to know him, but he noticed that they weren't afraid to be themselves. Dante loved that no one was afraid of making a fool of themselves, but they were just interested in making it known to potential new brothers that this organization is a safe space for people to be who they want to be. During the rush process, actually, he vividly remembers meeting his Big, Joe Lacitignola, and remembering that he was such a nice guy, and that he wanted to be good friends with him. Discovering that he was in the Psi Kappa Family was probably one of the best moment in Dante's freshman year at Saint Joseph's University.
