OX: Why did you join Theta Chi?
Rick James: Got lost on the way to SAE. Nah seriously it turned out to be a bunch of guys that were down to earth and had a lot of fun. Scooter and I lived in the same dorm and had to find a way out of the dorm life. The guys at the house reminded me of some of the gang back home that I grew up with.
