  • And we're back!

    Welcome back everyone! It is officially school season and time to get back in the groove of things. As a member of a social sorority on campus as well as a business fraternity, the recruitment process has been in full swing! Phi Gamma Nu Professional Business Fraternity has wrapped up interviews and we are very excited to welcome our new pledge class! For those who are not familiar, business fraternities are RSOs on campus associated through the College of Business. Each fraternity as well as Business Council have pillars or ideals that they model their chapter and council by.

                As a member of Phi Gamma Nu, we model our chapter around professionalism, philanthropy and our social pillar. Now that all of us are back on campus and we have new pledges, our exciting events have begun for the semester! We have awesome philanthropy events for this week such as tutoring in the Champaign community on Tuesdays and Adopt-A-Highway on Saturday. Welcoming our new members, we have our first chapter of the semester Wednesday and a Professionalism 101 event for our younger members on Thursday. Next Monday we have a Career Fair Panel offering advice and tips on approaching recruiters at the Career Fair, which is already next week! I know it would not be a complete week without social events! Thursday is Capture the Flag on top of Krannert Art Museum, light-up frisbee on the quad after Chapter, PGN bowling event with our corporate sponsor Deloitte next Tuesday, and the chapter camping trip next weekend! I am definitely back in school mode and looking forward to a great semester with PGN, my sorority….and school work of course…
