Quote on Greek Life "I wasn't really interested in Greek Life until I met some of our guys at a recruitment event the summer before my freshman year. Like me, many of our members started out skeptical of Greek Life because of the bad stigma given to it by society. At UNK (and in SigEp especially) the Greek culture is very different, it is more academically focused, involvement based, and supportive. Choosing to go Greek is undoubtedly the best decision I have made in college."Cell:402-984-8604 Grant Benson Vice President of Programming The vice president of programming is responsible for the planning and execution of the chapter’s events and functions.

Quote on Greek Life "I joined Greek life because when I first came toUNK, I only knew two other people going here. I saw it as a reason to get involved right away and find a group of people who had the same aspirations and goals as me.

To this day I believe joining Greek life is the best decision I’ve made since coming to UNK."

I knew of the stereotypes and knew I wanted nothing to do with that lifestyle and just wanted to stay far away from all of that. I ended up going to a couple recruitment events just to see what fraternities were about and realized SigEp was far from what I thought it was. Fast forward to now and I’m currently the VP of Recruitment, life comes at you fast. I often think about where I’d be if I hadn’t joined SigEp, and I’m thankful every day that I decided to give it a shot.”Cell:308-233-7456 Henrique Adabo Vice President of Communication The vice president of communications is the chapter’s information officer, lead storyteller, and the primary protector of the chapter’s brand as well as the Grand Chapter’s brand.

Quote on Greek Life “When deciding on joining a Greek Organization I was a little weary on actually going through with it.

Greek Life has given me so many opportunities that I would not have had otherwise. One of the best decisions I have made so far."
