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 classes and swimming on his school’s Varsity swim team. Austin is a junior now at SDSU majoring in marketing and pledged for Delta Sigma Pi last semester 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 to be Rose of the Week by his peers in his pledge class. A notable work experience of his was being the marketing assistant this past summer for a prominent real estate company in San Marcos called 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 job opportunities in order to find that job that is the right fit for him. In the meantime, Austin considers himself to be a fun-loving guy with a positive outlook on life drawing inspiration from his various family members including but not limited to his mother, grandmother, and cousins.
