Greek Life Spotlight: Lambda

My name is Caiden Catcher and I am the President of Lambda Chi Alpha. This fraternity has completely changed the trajectory of my life through its incredible support network and ability to grow members to become the best men they can be. When I first came to TU, I was not very confident in my social skills and had difficulty meeting people and making friends. During freshman orientation, I had a long conversation with my RA who told me that he too had similar difficulties as a freshman, and what helped him was rushing a fraternity.
He was not trying to recruit me and barely mentioned that he was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha. His advice was genuine, and he simply wanted to see me succeed and be more confident. He thought that a fraternity might be the avenue for growth that I was searching for. I was unsure until I went through recruitment and found that his genuine attitude was not an anomaly but was fostered throughout the fraternity. I joined Lambda and have never been happier with my decision.
This fraternity and the great men that make it have given me so many wonderful opportunities to grow as a person, from our community outreach with the local food bank, Night Light Tulsa and Special Olympics, to our registered and brotherhood events. Every moment and event spent with these guys has made me a better friend, student, leader and member of society.
My favorite part about our fraternity is that the house was built by brothers, for brothers. The unofficial motto of our chapter is “The House That Brotherhood Built.” Every year before school starts, we spend a week repairing, remodeling and updating parts of our house. There is something amazing about seeing a group of people coming together to expand, protect and improve the house that brought us all together.
