Early Fraternity Life and Career

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.
