“98 Reasons” came about via a goofy conversation in regard to keeping Alumni brothers engaged. It went something like this:
Δ – Ya know what we need to get brothers to be part of the Alumni Association?
Π – No, what?
Δ – We need banter, man. You know, like how brothers talk when they all get together somewhere.
Π – Ya mean, like ripping-on each other and being completely abusive?
Δ – Yeah! That’s what I mean! That’s what’s cool about being a brother; that kind of honest back and forth, that you don’t get anywhere else.
Π – That would be kind of cool.
Δ – “Kind of”? Are you f’ing kidding me? It would be super cool! So how do we do it?
Π – Well, we could do something like list 100 reasons why brotherhood is good.
Δ – 100 is corny man. How about 99?
Π – No, 99 is stupid too. It’s like a pricing strategy. Brothers will see right through that scheme.
Δ – Well then, how about 98? No one uses 98.
Π – Done!
And with that, the most successful awareness program in Delta Pi Alumni Association history was born! To be 100% honest, it’s the ONLY awareness program in Delta Pi history, but let’s not confuse the matter.
