Early Fraternity Life and Career

Luigi knew since his Senior year at Camden Catholic High School that he wanted to join a fraternity. The tripod of Phi Sigma Pi appealed to him much more than the social Fraternities. He knew he wanted to rush Phi Sigma Pi after going on an immersion trip to El Paso with fellow Brothers Tony Newton and Samantha DiGiuseppe. In the spring of 2014, the Brothers of the Zeta Iota Chapter gave him a bid, which he accepted. As an initiate, Luigi served on the Initiate Social committee and came to truly understand the meaning of brotherhood through his unforgettable interactions with the Brothers and his fellow Initiates. On May 1st 2014, the chapter inducted Luigi as a Brother of Phi Sigma Pi.
