New Frat Position Formed to Help Brothers Find Dates for Date Nights

Everyone knows real frat boys don’t date. So when date nights and formals come around, it undoubtedly gets a bit nerve-wracking. Obviously, they don't get too nervous though, because they are really cool guys and can totally ask any girl they want. But just in case, it’s nice to have a backup.

“It’s not that the girls don’t want to go with me,” assured Alpha Omega Kappa brother Todd Freeman (C ’20), “it’s just I’m too lazy to ask so I just end up making Jeff or Luis or Sam get me a date.”

After two years of saying that line to anyone who asked, Freeman was admittedly relieved when the Interfraternity Council proposed the addition of a new leadership role for members — the matchmaker, a person who earns the respect and upholds core fraternity values by finding their brothers super hot dates.

“It’s nice knowing a brother’s entire night will depend on me. I live for power and small ways to obtain it in my daily life,” explained Senior Matchmaker Kevin Hake (C ’18) "Plus, I can totally put this on my resume."

Whether it’s for a formaldate nightrush event, or even just a regular day doing nothing at the house, looks like these guys will never have to worry about finding a date ever again.
