Lodge Reconstruction Offers Epsilon Gammas Opportunity to Build Pike Memories
Why I Gave: Scott Campbell ’74
Memories made at college often stay with an individual their entire life and help shape them into the person they become. The diverse people you meet and wide variety of experiences give students the knowledge to form successful careers of their own. For Epsilon Gamma alumnus Scott Campbell ’74, his Pike membership added to vast opportunities already available to Texas Tech students and paved the way for a successful career down the road.
“I knew a couple of Pikes. They asked me to attend the rush parties where I met a number of great guys,” Scott says of his decision to first visit Pike. “They encouraged me to pledge stating how well I would fit in-and they were right. I met so many good people with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences that I was able to learn from. Being a member of Pike also helped me realize I could achieve long- term goals.” Beyond that, Pike gave him the opportunity to develop important leadership skills. As an undergraduate, Scott held multiple Chapter officer positions such as Lodge Chairman, Sergeant at Arms, and Pledge Trainer.
“Some of my favorite Pike memories are from sporting events-both intramurals and Texas Tech basketball and football, not to forget the social events at the old Lodge on 19th Street.”These cherished memories serve as a big motivator for Scott stay involved with the Fraternity today. “You get out of Pike what you put into it. The Fraternity has given more to me than I can ever give back to it; but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try.”
The desire to support the next generation of brothers, along with the opportunity to honor his own parents, Gladys and John C. Campbell, serves as Scott’s inspiration to support the Pride in Our Past, Foun- dation of Our Future. “The fraternity needs a base of operations where brothers can interact with one another. I’d like to be a part of making this happen for the new Pike’s at Texas Tech.”
Today, Scott resides in Midland, Texas, where he is an oil and gas consultant providing well site supervision of drilling/ completion/ work over/production operations. In his free time, Scott enjoys traveling around the country with Pike brothers to watch college football games and professional baseball, as well as visiting his niece and nephews.
