Meet Pfeiffer Greeks
Director of Academic Operations
Charter member of Delta Gamma, North Carolina State University
“I had always wanted to join a sorority but did not rush my freshman year. When I found out that NC State was bringing a new sorority to campus my junior year, I decided to rush. I loved the idea of being a “founding” sister of an organization. That we, the Eta Kappa Chapter of Delta Gamma would lay the foundation for the successes and journey our fellow sisters would enjoy today and for many years to come.
I learned many things from my sisters but the most important was no matter what, they were always going to be there for me. That has proven to rein true, many years later. While we are all cities, states and countries a part, we still continue to share in each other’s achievements, milestones. It’s like always having a group of personal cheerleaders cheering you on!”

“My best memory is my initiation. It was extremely special to begin building a bond with new friends and even more so since my brother was able to take part in the event.
But the truth is that every experience was special. My best friends are my fraternity brothers. We grew into adulthood with one another – we celebrated marriages and births of children together. We’ve been through our share of tragedies together. It’s hard to explain how even as I’m further away from my undergraduate days, the nature of the friendships through fraternity hasn’t weakened.
I think an addition of Greek organizations at Pfeiffer would infuse a new element of community on our campus. We talk a lot about the Pfeiffer Pfamily here – and it is truly a part of the DNA of this university. Greek life can provide another home for students to come together and tap into the resources of a national network of community-minded leaders. It no doubt will offer a way for the mission of the institution to be lived out in tangible ways.”

“This plaque was given to me by my grandfather, my namesake. He went to college for one semester during the depression but pledged Sig Ep. I didn't know that until I told him I pledged my junior year in 1978.”

“I think more than anything, I learned about what a support system is. Joining a sorority is lifelong friendships and a family. I have always been taught to be so independent on every aspect of life, but you simply can’t be. You have to have someone to lean on in your tough times!
Being in a sorority has opened so many door for me not just in college but since I have graduated. I was able to become a chapter advisor at my previous job and mentor those girls.”

“My Greek-life experience became a pivotal point in my college career. It presented me the opportunity to grow myself, make an impact on my community, and realize my potential. When I entered my collegiate years, I would consider myself a follower, and at the time I was content with that. People within my organization saw potential in me, and encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone. During my undergraduate years I held three positions within my organization, two of which, were on the executive board. I became the Vice President of New Member Education and was charged with the task of mentoring and educating sixty new members within my organization. I was also selected to represent my chapter at the Norma Minch Andrisek Leadership conference to further cultivate my leadership skills. My organization taught me to never underestimate my abilities and that I am a leader.”
