In January 2015, undergraduate brother Clark Jacobs fell from a loft bed in his sleep and fractured his skull. After the fall, it was uncertain whether or not he would survive the head injury he sustained, but this semester, he has returned to classes after a remarkable recovery.

After emergency brain surgery saved his life, Clark underwent months of rehabilitation. He had to learn to walk, talk, and feed himself all over again. But thankfully, he’s made great progress. He's returned to campus this fall and is enrolled in two classes.

He and his mother have also launched a new campaign, called Rail Against the Danger, that will ensure fraternity houses across the state have more safety features on their loft beds to ensure no other accidents like this happen again.

Although Clark realizes that he will never be quite the same, he is focused on becoming the new and improved version of himself and achieving his goal of finishing school no matter what.
