Bradley Cash has been an vital piece of our Eta Lambda home and we are so happy to announce his new title as 2017-2018 Alpha Phi's Bordeaux Beau! Bradley, or Cash as most know him by, has been a huge support to our chapter for a long time and we are so excited to create new memories as this coming school year approaches. Cash has participated in all of our events and has been more than just a pillar of support but a genuine friend to us all. His kindness and charisma are just two out of many wonderful attributes used to describe him-he is constantly going out of his way to develop friendships with our sisters and support us in any way he can. Get to know our new Bordeaux Beau in the article below!
1. Where would you consider home and what brought you to Mason? What is your major?
I consider Virginia Beach home. I've lived near the oceanfront for most of my life but I decided to come to Mason for the great opportunities that it offers and its proximity to DC.
2. How has Greek Life impacted your collegiate career?
Before I joined Greek Life I was relatively shy and reserved. After I joined a fraternity I kind of came out of my shell and it allowed me to be more social and interact with more people. Without Greek Life I would have never met some of my best friends.
3. What are you most looking forward to being Alpha Phi's 2017-2018 Bordeaux Beau ?
I'm most looking forward to participating in all of the fundraisers and philanthropy events that Alpha Phi puts on during the year such as King of Hearts and Red Dress Gala. The Alpha Phi Foundation is one of my favorite philanthropies on campus to support because it helps fight heart disease which is the #1 killer of women in North America. There are so many strong and important women in my life and supporting the Alpha Phi Foundation is just one way that I can give back to them.
4. Is there any advice or anything you would want to say to future and current Alpha Phi sisters?
Get as involved with Alpha Phi and any other organizations on campus as you can. It'll make your college experience so much more fulfilling!
5. What is the greatest lesson you've learned in college so far?
Don't let mistakes hold you back. Life is all about progressing and growing as a person and in order to do that you have to learn from your experiences and mistakes.
6. Who is your hero and why?
My dad is my hero. He is the most dedicated, hard-working, and intelligent person I know and I strive every day to be more like him.
7. What actor would play you if your life were turned into a movie and why?
I've been told several times that I look like Miles Teller so i guess I would pick him. I think it's the hair.
8. How has Eta Lambda impacted you?
Eta Lambda has given me some great friends, some wonderful memories, and even a big sister (hi Paige). The lovely ladies of Alpha Phi have enhanced my college experience in countless ways and I couldn't be more grateful to have such a wonderful group of women in my life. #AOE
9. What is one thing you wish someone had told you before coming to Mason?
You may think you have the will power to wake up for a MWF 9 am class but you absolutely DO NOT. Stick to those afternoon classes buddy.
10. What fraternity are you a part of?
I am a part of Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity on Campus, I am also the Vice President.
