Your IFC Role and Responsibilities: I am working on expansion and SMART goals that our council set in the beginning of our terms.

Hometown: Huxley, Iowa

Major: Criminology and Psychology

Chapter: Sigma Phi Epsilon

Your IFC Role and Responsibilities: Know, interpret, and enforce bylaws for Greek community, run social roundtables, and step in for president it he is absent.

What Being a Member of a Greek Organization Has Done for Me: Being a member of a Greek organization has allowed me to grow professionally and individually. Greek life has pushed me to join other organizations and go beyond my comfort zone. Being around other leaders and great men and women really makes you push your self and become a better person because of it. It has also allowed me to network and meet a large number of great people. I was told when I joined that the men in my fraternity will be the groomsman at my wedding and pallbearers at my funeral. Each day that I am in Greek life the truer that becomes.

Vice President of Scholarship: Gabe Gravert

Hometown: Albia, Iowa

Major: Secondary Mathematics Education

Chapter: Sigma Alpha Epsion

Your IFC Role and Responsibilities: I love my role on IFC because it lets me focus on what I love and what to do for the rest of my life. It lets me help students achieve in the classroom to their best of their ability. What I do specifically is host New Member Orientation, help chapters on Academic Guidance or Probation, and I find ways to help the community achieve academically. 

What Being a Member of a Greek Organization Has Done for Me: It has given me opportunities that I couldn't receive at any other organization on campus. It gives me the opportunity to become more involved on campus and gives me experience in leadership that is so hard to find anywhere else. The order and structure of Greek life is very similar to what college students will see once they graduate. There are problems all the time and it is our job to find solutions.

What Being a Member of a Greek Organization Has Done for Me: Greek Life has allowed me to seize both social and leadership opportunities.  I have been able to meet many people from all walks of life and make connections that I wouldn't have been able to elsewhere.  The brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon have also become lifetime friends and I am thankful to have them as a great support system.
