New York Times Best-Selling Author and co-star of MTV’s The Buried Life BEN NEMTIN is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want To Do Before You Die, the star of the MTV show The Buried Life, and an internationally renowned keynote speaker.

From playing basketball with President Obama to streaking a soccer field, from raising over $400,000 for charity to placing a record-breaking $250,000 bet on roulette—Ben’s bucket list quest has inspired millions to chase their dreams.

I do hereby agree to adhere to the following Code of Conduct while I am an attendee of the 83rd John O. Moseley Leadership School and a guest of the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass. My conduct will at all times be a reflection of “The True Gentleman.” I will not violate the laws of the land, the regulations of my university/college, the rules of the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass or the Fraternity Laws and health-and-safety policies of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

I fully understand that it is a felony to tamper with any fire-safety device, and that if caught, I will be prosecuted and subject to fine and arrest.

If I fail in any way to follow this Code of Conduct, I fully understand that the Eminent Supreme Recorder or his designee has the right to remove me from the school immediately and send me home at my own expense, or with my chapter being billed by the Fraternity Service Center. I also understand that if this occurs, my membership in Sigma Alpha Epsilon may be terminated.

I understand that if I am 21 or older that I will not purchase nor provide alcohol for anyone under the age of 21. I acknowledge that having alcohol in my room is forbidden by this code of conduct, and understand that Leadership School Staff may search my suite at any time and confiscate prohibited materials. Quiet hours on the resort will be in effect each day from 1:30am until 7:00am. Violations of these or other provisions of the code of conduct may result in being sent home at my own expense.

I further understand no alcohol is allowed during the day until the last session of Leadership School is finished for that day. Also, since there are many other guests at the resort, I understand that no members will take shots/shooters, chug alcohol or participate in drinking games. I will conduct myself at all times as a true gentleman.

As a gentleman, I understand that some t-shirt slogans or pictures can be vulgar or tasteless. I will refrain from wearing such a shirt while at the program. If I have a question as to my shirt’s acceptability, I will ask a staff or faculty member for guidance. I realize that this type of dress reflects on the image of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

I understand that if my poor attendance at general sessions, seminars, or chapter meetings or my conduct warrants my failing Leadership School, regardless of receiving a diploma, I will be responsible for reimbursing the total tuition cost paid by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Foundation and/or my Chapter Education Fund or other scholarship fund. Additionally, I understand that if my actions cause injury to someone or something, I will indemnify and hold Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and Foundation harmless from any claims arising from my actions.
