2016-2017 EoY Report

Megan Fritz, ’17

Meg Fritz is a junior Recreation and Leisure Administration major with a focus in Therapy at YCP. She is from the Phi Eta Chapter of Phi Mu and is the President for the 2017 term. In addition to being in Phi Mu, Megan is also Resident Assistant (RA) on campus and an active member of the Recreation and Leisure Student Association.

Megan was recently awarded the 2016-2017 “President of the Year” award during the Greek Excellence Awards ceremony in April. Sisters who nominated Megan said she is successful at balancing her commitments and always makes time for her sisters. In addition to that, she is always positive and friendly to be around. On top of Megan winning one of the most prestigious awards on campus, Phi Mu was also awarded the first ever “Chapter of the Year” award. The awards committee was impressed with the chapter’s service work, campus involvement, and cultural awareness.

One thing that makes Megan’s experience unique on campus is that the same semester she became a sister of Phi Mu, she also was elected onto the Executive Board.  Megan joined in the Fall of 2015 which is the same semester that elections were being held. Megan says that, “being a new member and being elected on to Executive Board that same semester was scary and overwhelming at first but by far the most rewarding decisions I have ever made. Becoming an Executive Board member made me push myself to be the absolute best I could  be so that I could effectively serve our sisterhood.”

During her year on the Executive Board she says that she learned a lot about what it meant to be a leader. “I strive to be someone that my sisters can count on and look up to. I am beyond honored to have been elected as the next president of our chapter. This is not something that I would have imagined for myself when I first became a sister but so grateful that my time on the Executive Board and many sisters encouragement me lead me to now.”

 

Whe14021528_1224245787607893_8572603990659372495_nn asked about how Greek Life has affected her experience on campus, Megan said, “Greek Life has given me a sense of purpose on campus. It has provided so many opportunities for me to grow as a person and as a leader.” Megan says that she is humbled by everyone’s support and is excited to serve her chapter and the Greek Life Community for the upcoming year. It’s clear that the community is just as excited about the hard work she has put in not only for the community but her sorority as well.

Myles Jackson, ’19

Myles Jackson is a sophomore Mass Communication major with a Music Industry minor at York College of PA. Myles is a member of the Alpha Theta chapter of Kappa Delta Phi and currently serves as recruitment chair for his fraternity. On campus, besides being in Greek Life, Myles is also involved in YCP’s Rock Band and the Explorative Learning Association.

This semester, Myles was able to participate in YorVoice 2017 music competition where he preformed at the Strand Capitol theater downtown. YorVoice showcases artists in the York area and is sponsored by York’s Cultural Alliance. Myles noted that it was one of his goals as an artist to preform at the Strand and that he was very excited that he was able to do so.

When Myles came to campus he was interested in the YCP Rock Band class. He was offered the chance to audition and was accepted to preform with the group. Myles says, “having graduated from Baltimore School for the Arts, I was no stranger to being on stage and working with musicians, and I found that piece of my life missing when I got to YCP, so joining YCRB was really me just bringing that back into my life here at college.”

Last year, Myles was the winner of the Greek God competition for YCP Greek Week. Myles had plenty to say about how Greek Life has impacted his life. He explained that he has made valuable lifelong friendships and that being in Greek Life has allowed him to improve himself. “I’m not a very trusting person, but being a part of my fraternity has taught me that nothing of value can be achieved without help. Learning to depend on others and striving to develop myself constantly is one of the most valuable lessons that being a member of Kappa Delta Phi has taught me.”

Joe Carbone, ’18

Joe Carbone is a Computer Information Systems major with a Music Industry minor at York College of Pennsylvania. Joe is a brother of the Omicron Upsilon Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon and serves as the New Member Educator this spring. In addition to his chapter, Joe is also the Vice President of Programming of the Interfraternity Council. On campus, besides being involved with fraternity life, Joe is a Help Desk Student Worker where he works as the Network Infrastructure Team Intern.

Joe stated that being in Greek Life allowed him to increase his leadership skills, develop a work ethic, and build time management skills that he said would be needed in his future career. “The brothers I have made in Tau Kappa Epsilon at York College are some of my best friends, and I can honestly say that my pledge brothers will be in my wedding some day. Most people don’t believe it unless they see it, but it truly is the fraternity for Life.”

Joe was able to attend the Northeast Greek Leadership Association Annual Conference over winter break with fellow YCP students. Joe had this to say about his time at NGLA, “my experience at NGLA gave me a professional environment in which I could improve my networking skills with members of my national fraternity as well as members of other national and local fraternities and sororities.”

He mentioned that he was able to learn how to deal with conflict that might happen within an organization and how to see it from a bigger picture. “I learned a lot about how to deal with conflict within an organization, how to step back, see the conflict from all points of view and to not let emotion or fear interfere with a decision that could affect the greater good of the organization. Meeting members of Greek Life from all around the Northeast allowed me to compare my chapter’s operations to other organization’s, learn new ideas that I could bring to my chapter, as well as give other organizations ideas to bring back to their chapter.”

Joe’s chapter, recently held their 40th anniversary on campus this March. The chapter held an alumni BBQ event and invited back all their alumni.

Joe said, “This event was a lot of fun and a great experience for all active and alumni members, many great memories were shared and many more were made. The experience was one I will never forget, can’t wait to come back for the 50th!”

Zoe Rehman, ’18

This week, York College of Pennsylvania is celebrating our commuter students! Zoe Rehman, a sister of Phi Sigma Sigma, is a commuter student and an active member in Greek Life.

Members of the Panhellenic Eboard during Spring Recruitment ’17

Zoe Rehman is a Finance major and is a junior at YCP.  She currently serves as the Bursar for her sorority in addition to serving as the Vice President for the Panhellenic Council.

When Zoe was asked if Greek Life changed her life she noted that it not only helped her become more acquainted with the student body and meeting new friends, but it gave her multiple opportunities, including the leadership positions she currently holds. “When joining Phi Sigma Sigma I never thought that I would have wanted to hold a leadership position. I always thought it would be too much pressure and I wasn’t interested in that. But since then holding a leadership position has helped me grow more as an individual. It has helped me become more professional and enhance my skills.”

IMG_0721.JPG
Members of the Panhellenic Eboard, Fall ’16

Because she holds such unique position, holding a leadership position in her sorority as well as being on the Panhellenic Executive Board, she has definitely shown how capable she is and how well she manages her time.  “Being both the Bursar and Vice President have given me more insight into what I want to do with my future as well given that I am a finance major. It opens your eyes to so many other opportunities you have.” Being on the executive board for her own sorority also gave Zoe the opportunity to go to her sorority’s national conference, where she got to meet many different sisters from around the country.

As a commuter at YCP, Zoe explained she was hesitant at first to go out for recruitment. She said that it helped to keep her engaged on campus even after her classes were over. “Before Greek Life I never was really on campus I would just go to class and then go home. I didn’t like going to class or going to school in general, but once I joined Phi Sig I now always have a place to go and have people to be with. I am honestly on campus most of the day, being in Greek Life really has given me a home away from home. Also, I am on the Panhellenic eboard so I have meetings and different obligations and I enjoy being here so much more. I enjoy being more involved and doing different things on campus, makes it feel like I have more of a purpose to be here, rather than just going to class.”

She did note that as a commuter it was harder to adjust to the change in time commitment, but it was worth it. “Being a commuter at first was hard to manage my time and activities here on campus and having a part time job. It was hard getting used to having the commitment of being at school more, but after awhile it became so much more manageable and I now enjoy coming to school everyday because I have the opportunity to see everyone.”

Claire Alexander, ’18

Claire Alexander is a junior Mass Communication Major at York College of PA with a Theatre minor. She is from the Alpha Lambda chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon. Claire is a part of the YCP Theatre division and serves as an Orientation Coordinator (OC), having been promoted to OC after being a Orientation Leader for two years. She has also been involved with intramurals and the WVYC radio show.

Claire preforming as Abigail in Abigail/1702

In the past she has played many lead roles in different plays.  Her first semester as a freshman she was cast as Sister Aloysius Beauvier in Doubt: A Parable which in her words, “was a huge honor because Maryl Streep played the same role”. She also played the role of Abigail Williams in Abigail/1702. And most recently, she played a variety of different characters in Story Theatre, a collection of folk tale plays.

When it came to Greek Life, Claire noted that it had definitely impacted her years here at YCP. “I originally joined because I love being active on campus, but I gained so much more. DPhiE is my biggest support system- whether I’m taking a test or the lead in a play, I know my sisters are cheering for me whatever I do. Being a member of my sorority has also given me so many great role models that I constantly look up to who make me want to become the best person I can.”

She also noted that one of the more important aspects of being in a sorority for her was the ability to serve her community more. “It has also made an easy outlet for me to participate in more community service, I spent many hours last semester delivering Meals On Wheels with sisters. I also love the Greek unity we have here; having friends in other organizations is awesome because we all share the same interests and it makes the York College community feel closer.”14611044_1094465330638821_8491142288066165542_n

As a new Orientation Coordinator, Claire explained that is has brought  more opportunities for her to exercise her responsibility.

 

“We have already begun planning Orientation for the fall and we also have the duty of training Orientation Leaders but it is a lot of fun. After being an Orientation Leader for two years I was excited to take the next step and see what more I could do for the program and I am happy that I have already been able to do a lot just this year. Being an Orientation Leader has been one of my favorite experiences at York College, there is nothing more rewarding than helping new students find their home.”

Since there are many members of Greek Life in the Orientation team, Claire has the unique job of working with them. She said, “It is great to work with other Greek OCs, like I mentioned earlier, its cool because we are already friends through Greek life so we get along really well. We are also great at bouncing ideas off one another and I think its going to make orientation awesome this coming year.” We cannot wait for Orientation to come around and to meet our new Spartans!

Erin Murray, ’19 & Sydney Gawronski, ’19

One of the best things that Greek Life can bring you is friendship and a close bond with the members of this community. Sydney and Erin found their friendship much earlier in life and watched as it grew stronger by becoming sorority sisters. Read more about how these women are giving a new meaning to the term “best friends for life.”

Sydney Gawronski and Erin Murray are both members of the Epsilon Rho Chapter of Phi Sigma Sigma and both Human Service majors at York College of Pennsylvania. Sydney serves as the Membership Recruitment Chair and Erin as a Standards Board member for the chapter.

These two friends met when Sydney moved to Limerick, PA from Philadelphia. Sydney and Erin met in 3rd grade at Limerick Elementary school and became fast friends since they lived very close to each other. Throughout the years they started to separate because of taking other classes in middle school and becoming a part of different friend groups. It was their senior year in high school when they saw each other at an Open House event at York and were able to reconnect:

“One day at an open house event at YCP we saw each other in the dining hall and I had no idea she was even interested in YCP…” Sydney said. They then became roommafrenztes their freshman year and again this year along with another sister of Phi Sigma Sigma.

Sydney says that being in Greek Life has made her much more organized and helped with her leadership and time management skills. “Being a member of Phi Sigma Sigma’s executive board has taught me how to present in front of groups more confidently and taught me how to deal with interacting with other companies and organizations.”

As a new member to Greek Life, Erin had much to say about how it has already affected her life,  “Greek Life has improved my life in so many ways already. I have met some of the most amazing people I will ever know through this organization. My pledge sisters became three of my best friends in just a few short weeks, not to mention my incredible big sister, and everyone else I have come to love as my own sisters. Its really great to get to know so many people from other organizations on campus as well.”

When asked how they felt about becoming sisters through

their sorority, they both were elated about it. Sydney said, “Erin has always been like a sister to me even before she joined Phi Sig. She was someone who I could always turn to for the best advice and she was willing to help me with anything I needed. I am glad now that she is a part of Phi Sig because I can show her all the great things this sorority has given to me and will hopefully give to her.”

Erin stated that her friendship with Sydney was also like they were sisters. “…and now that we are officially sorority sisters [it] only makes us closer. I am able to understand her love for this organization now, and experience all of the great things that Greek Life has to offer.”

Darryl has stated that Greek Life has already made a huge impact on him when it comes to being at York College. “Having a family away from home is the best part, as I can trust my brothers with anything I would trust my family with, and my brothers have helped me grow as a person and a leader. Not having any siblings, being able to call my fraternity my brothers is one of the best things I could ever ask for.”

 

 

As a newly elected member of the Executive Board for Kappa Delta Rho, Darryl explained that it has already been a rewarding and exciting experience. “Being able to work with everyone and being able to help out the chapter as a whole is an awesome feeling… It has been an awesome experience and I hope to grow even more with it!”

Beyond his experience in Kappa Delta Rho, Darryl has spent his time at YCP on Student Senate. The YCP Student Senate has a large amount of Greek members involved from general senators, to chair/committee holders like Darryl, to executive officers. Having the chance to serve his College through Student Senate, with fellow Greek members, has been a great opportunity to better both the YCP community and the Greek Life community!

When it comes to being in Greek Life, Juli says that, “…Greek life has made me an extremely confident female leader. It has made me more involved and given me opportunities to grow and find new interests. It has also allowed me to network with alumni and form close bonds with students that I would not have been able to if I had not joined Greek life. My sisters empower me everyday to strive to be the best I can be and are the best support system a girl going through nursing school can ask for.”

Juli says “we got to wake up a 5am and go to the today show where I ended up somehow being right in between the hosts so I got on TV!” After The Today Show they visited with an alumni at Viacom which is the company that owns many TV stations, most notably being Nick, MTV,  and Paramount. Later on they were able to go to the alumni reception where they connected with alumni as well as perspective students  to explain what they had in store for them when they would be incoming students in the fall. Juli was fortunate enough to experience this trip with her big sister in the sorority, Ashley.
