Chapter Advisor Christian Pearson ’13 Encourages Alumni to Reconnect

Why did you decide to join Delta Tau Delta can be a difficult question, but for Christian Pearson ’13, the answer comes easily. “I was sold on Delta Alpha from the moment I connected with members in the chapter,” he says. “These men exemplified everything I hoped to become and more. They gave me some of my most cherished memories and friendships in the fraternity, and I couldn’t be more proud to call them my brothers.”

The profound experiences Christian had in Delta Alpha inspired him to stay connected to the fraternity by serving as the chapter advisor. “As chapter advisor, I’ve come to realize how big of a deal it is to maintain my involvement with Delta Alpha and give back to the place that gave me so much,” he says. “Former chapter advisors, such as Fred Gist ’73 and Justin Manning, Delta Omicron ’04, set the example for true brotherhood and leadership through their dedication to the future of Delta Alpha, and this encouraged me to follow in their footsteps.” Christian has high hopes for the chapter and is eager to put plans in motion for Delta Alpha’s long-term success at OU. “It is my goal to help prepare undergraduate brothers for the real world and inspire them to make a difference on campus and in the community. Being a member of Delta Alpha is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I want future generations to be provided the same opportunities I had.”

As an alumnus, Christian’s Delta Alpha roots remain intact and he maintains connections with Matt Akins ’13Patrick Henning ’13Jared Paris ’12, and Jeff Robertson ’12. Christian encourages alumni to contribute their time and efforts to Delta Alpha and says, “For many of us, our years in Delta Alpha were some of the best years of our life and, as alumni, it is our responsibility to be a driving force in the continued success of our chapter. Alumni involvement serves as the backbone for Delta Alpha, and to ensure our chapter’s prominent standing on campus, your involvement is critical.”

Aside from his role as chapter advisor, Christian enjoys working in the financial industry and being a professional musician in Oklahoma City. He began his music career during his freshman year of college and takes pleasure in attending musicals, orchestra concerts, and jazz concerts. When he is not hard at work, you will likely find Christian playing sports, reading, or engaging in outdoor activities. You can contact Christian at [email protected].
