Pledge Class: Gamma Xi
Austin King was born and raised in San Diego, California, specifically in the town of Rancho Penasquitos where he attended Mount Carmel High School. Up until then, he was involved in student council and Associated Student Body. However, he traded in these involvements to focus on his AP courses and swimming on the school’s Varsity swim team. Austin is a senior now at SDSU majoring in marketing and pledged for Delta Sigma Pi in Fall 2018 as part of the Gamma Xi Pledge Class. While he did not hold any positions, he was involved in multiple committees and was even voted Rose of the Week by his peers in his pledge class. A notable work experience of his was being a marketing assistant for a prominent real estate company in San Marcos, the Bottrell Team. While Austin is not entirely sure what his dream job is, he still remains passionate about marketing and wishes to continue trying his hand at different jobs, internships, and things in order to find the occupation that is the right fit for him. All in all, Austin is quite the enthusiastic individual with a positive outlook on life and draws inspiration from his family.
