Minnesota

A Letter From the Association President

Ninety percent – That is the portion of time an average undergraduate spends OUTSIDE the classroom per a Gallup poll as shared in the Fall 2021 PEARLS & RUBIES! Fraternities, especially FarmHouse, play a significant role in making that time outside of the classroom uniquely impactful by providing a support network . . . a home that promotes mental wellness, lifelong connections, and accelerates success.

Alumni participation is critical to the continuity of the Minnesota FarmHouse experience. The passing forward of the benefits of the FarmHouse experience is a 50/50 responsibility: 50% with Alumni to promote the University of Minnesota and FarmHouse to the young men in their lives, and 50% with the Chapter to offer up membership and welcome new brothers.

As we move forward in 2022, remember we are not looking for perfect men to join our brotherhood, but we are looking for boys worthy of building into men who are of “good moral character, high in scholarship, have the capacity for meeting and making friends, and give promise of service to their fellowmen and to the world”.

The University of Minnesota and the Gophers have more than on occasion disappointed us all, but I personally believe in the U’s ability to test and train young people for leadership and the reality life. It is impossible for an institution in a small town to provide all the opportunities and experiences found in a place like the Twin Cities, but FarmHouse provides a home to make our large alma matter approachable.

Who are the imperfect but promising high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors or seniors in your life who need the FarmHouse experience? Do you know any young men heading to the U this fall? Please talk to them about your experience, please pass on their contact information.

Wishing you a prosperous 2022 and hope to see you at the 91st Anniversary of Minnesota FarmHouse the weekend of June 10-12.

Fraternally,

Joel Reiman
