Comments (primary residence)

"I lived with a gay roommate last semester and it did not bother me in the slightest. In fact, it was nice to get a different perspective."

"nah not anything in particular. My roommate's boyfriend is a hell of a singer though."

"Though Delts might make the occasional gay joke or seemingly derogatory comment, as a gay brother I've never felt excluded or discriminated against intentionally. Clearly there are guys here who weren't used to being around gay people very often before I joined, and everyday we all learn more about each other, but that can be said about any living group. I didn't want to join a stereotypical 'gay' fraternity and worry that I was only given a bid by default because I was gay. It was important for me to find a fraternity that wanted me for me, without caring about my sexualityThat's exactly what I found at Delts. "
