As a member of a national fraternity, Adam found lifelong friends, mentors, and created countless memories. Adamâs brotherhood experience positively impacted the course of his life. In Adamâs keynote, The Last Man Out, Adam shares his story about losing his brotherhood and living alone in his fraternity house after a hazing incident resulted in the closure of their chapter. Adam addresses the value of brotherhood/sisterhood and defines the real costs associated with hazing.

Project Semicolon is a movement to support those who are struggling with mental illness or suicide. Our goal is to create a community that listens, takes action, and provides hope, love and inspiration.
A semicolon is used when an author could have ended a sentence but chose not to. You are the author and the sentence is your life.
Drop in for temporary tattoos, coloring, conversation, and other activities that support mental health!
