  1. The camera-zoom in and out got old after its umpteenth time. I get that it makes things more visually interesting, but it just felt distracting mostly.

  2. Ethan, congratulations on this story and everything you’ve accomplished during your time with DLP and BU. Over the past three years, I’ve watched this great group of young men form strong bonds with each other, with brothers and colonists from around the country, with alumni, and with the BU community. This group is what Delta Lambda Phi is all about, and I’m incredibly proud of them.

  3. Honest concern here: Why is Ethan, and this organization, getting so much free press all of a sudden? If I remember correctly, this counts as the SEVENTH article, video, or advertisement for DLP since the beginning of this academic year!

    No other student group has gotten this much attention, and I’m curious as to what the reasoning is for giving this club so much free advertising. There are countless other organizations doing important things, just like this one.

    Don’t hate, I’m just curious.

    1. After the year the University has seen, I’m not surprised that they want to show that greek life is more than parties, bros/biddies, and hazing. DLP is helping to redefine the “college fraternity” stereotype.

      And believe that or not, that’s news.

      P.s. I’d be interested to see your count with URLs. I think “seventh” is exaggerating.

      P.p.s. I personally know that two of this year’s articles were from the DFP and the Quad, which are not run by BU.

  4. Delta Lambda Phi at BU has come a long way since the interest group started. If you know Ethan, or any of the colonists personally, you know that everyone is incredibly devoted, and has seen a few hard times with the colony, but still hold DLP close to their hearts.

    The colony has gotten its fair share of press coverage over the last three years because it has been so active, in many respects. The chartering process, service events, and fine tuning recruitment have grown the brotherhood, and everyone’s hard work has helped make our presence known. In short, big things are happening with the colony, and they are getting noticed by the BU community; just as is the case with many other student organizations.

  5. So proud of you and all you’ve done for the BU community, Ethan! It’s been wonderful to see how both you and the organization have evolved over the past years. Congratulations on your graduation and all you’ve helped accomplish here!
