Jim is a member of the Pennsylvania Lambda Chapter and a graduate of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where he studied criminology and sociology. As an undergraduate, he had the opportunity to become a founding father of his chapter, where he served as a recruitment chairman for several semesters.

What Makes Phi Delta Theta Great?
“Phi Delta Theta is a great organization because it is composed of individuals, at all levels or the organization, who continuously challenge the status quo and one another in the pursuit of becoming the greatest version of fraternity. This is reflected through the leadership development opportunities provided by being a member or alumnus of Phi Delt, the philanthropic impacts by ways of the Live Like Lou or Iron Phi Foundations, and professionally by the staff at General Headquarters for being recognized as a nationally Great Place to Work.”Jim Rosencrans
