Here’s our new Member of the Week! Omicron Class', Hannah Hildebrandt.
Q: Rho Class just got initiated into Lambda Kappa Tau, how do you think the outreach process and initiation went this semester?
A: I think it went really smoothly. I mean, it was a lot of work but it was all worth it because it was really fun and so great to meet all of the outreacher’s and be a positive person to help them through outreach week, the interviews, shadow week and all the way up to initiation.
Q: This was your first semester being Greek chair, what drew you to the position and was it harder than what you expected?
A: This was my first semester as Greek chair and it was an amazing experience. I really love planning and organizing events and meeting people, because as a journalism student I have to be charismatic and outgoing and I think those are important qualities for Greek chairs to have. But I felt super annoying posting over and over again about events and RSVPing on every possible page possible. It was hard. But I expected it to be hard. I think it was a lot of planning, which I had been doing all winter break and then I kind of just had to wait for it all to happen and I think the waiting was the hardest part because I was so scared that I was forgetting something or that something would go wrong but I’m really relieved that it all went smoothly.
Q: Did you learn anything new from being Greek chair this semester?
A: I learned that Greek Affairs chair takes a lot of planning so I would definitely say it helped me not only plan my LKT life but also my classwork/homework schedule and my life in general. Thanks Greek!
Q: If you could go back and do it all over again would you change anything?
A: I would probably try to have some new events. This semester I reached out to current brothers and hoped that someone would have some good ideas. And they did! I would love to get more people to events and make sure that everyone gets to know the outreachers because they are all really great people. I would try to be less obnoxious on Facebook with the event posts.
Q: What advice would you give for future Greek chairs?
A: Dear Future Greek Chairs, you should love planning. Being Greek chair is a lot of planning and organizing. If that sounds like you then that’s your first step. You also have to be friendly, outgoing, charismatic and knowledgeable about everything LKT.
