Limited research exists that considers the decision to pursue student affairs as a career, and there is no known research to examine the decision to specifically pursue fraternity/sorority advising. This qualitative, narrative analysis study centers the career decision-making of seven professionals in fraternity/sorority advising roles. Findings indicate that participants experienced a “light-bulb” moment when student affairs became a potential future career, and advisors and mentors were influential in these decisions. Prioritization of fraternity/sorority advising roles in both graduate programs and professional positions was apparent, and motivation to continue in the field is also addressed.
