Matt Larson ’01 Gives Back to the Shelter as Property Manager

Matt Larson ’01 has made many memories at the Shelter. He remembers football games, parties, and spending time in the place that took care of him during his time at Nebraska. Now, Matt gets to give back to the Shelter as property manager. “I felt like I owed the chapter something,” he says. “It helped me so much to get on the right path for life and career.”
 
With more than 10 years of remodeling under his belt, Matt owns his own company, Change House Design & Construction. He is the go-to guy for whenever something goes wrong–taking stress off the House Corporation and the undergraduates. “A good friend of mine on the House Corporation mentioned the position, and I was definitely interested,” Matt says. “As far as I know, we’ve never had something like this before. I’m happy to help and it’s cool to go back and see everything again.”
 
He says one of his favorite parts is finding old composite pictures, and it helps him stay in touch with the brothers. “It’s fun to find the composite pictures. I’ll text the pictures to the guys and it gives us something to talk about,” Matt says.
 
Help is always needed and Matt encourages alumni to lend a hand. “You don’t have to take a gigantic leap,” he says. “Any little bit helps. Plus, no one is going to tell you no if you want to help out.”
 
Matt’s advice to undergraduates or younger alumni is to constantly pursue something that will make them happy. He says if you’re not happy with it, then don’t do it.
 
Matt lives in Lincoln with his wife, Brooke, and daughter, Collins. He jokes that he doesn’t have much free time since he’s always unclogging the Delt toilets. E-mail Matt at matt@changehousedesign.com.

THE FOUR FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF DETLA TAU DELTA ARE TRUTH, COURAGE, FAITH AND POWER.


Truth is vital in the relationship between an organization and the outside world.

If an organization cannot be trusted, it will perish. Truth begins within the organization. In order to truly become brothers, men must be truthful to themselves and to one another. They must hold one another accountable.


Courage takes heart.

Those who are courageous thrive. As you navigate through life, you will be confronted with many difficult decisions. Courage helps a leader understand the best option and take it, regardless of the popularity of that choice. Courage has a distinct relationship with truth. One must know the truth in order to stand for it.


Faith is belief.

Faith grows and develops and changes. It means trusting yourself and believing your actions are appropriate and right. Faith will help you trust decisions made and believe that information told to you is correct. A lack of faith drives a wedge through an organization and through friendships.


Power begins as inner strength.

Power is a combination of talents and inherent abilities and wisdom. It is increased when the power of many individuals is united through an organization or a brotherhood. The power of an organization, when combined with courage, faith, and truth, leads one into the future and ensures success.
