Dear Drury Greek Life Stakeholders,
We’d like to share our most current initiatives and developments regarding Drury Greek Life:
Department Changes: The Student Activities Office is currently experiencing some bittersweet but exciting changes. We would like to announce that Andrea Battaglia, the Director of Student Activities and Marketing, is in the process of transitioning to a new position. On July 1, Andrea will take over as Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations. Andrea will train the new department head and oversee major Student Activities events, including Greek recruitment, to ease the transition. We’re excited for Andrea and her new opportunities and thank her for her nine years of service. We’re confident that, with the programs and ideas Andrea has put in place, and the new department leader’s fresh perspective, there are great things ahead for Drury’s Student Activities Department.
Spring 2014 Semester Grade Report: We’re proud to present the Spring 2014 Greek Grade Report. The report can be viewed here. Once again, Greek students have demonstrated a passion for academic excellence.
From the Interfraternity/Panhellenic Councils: We’re looking forward to the annual Greek Summer Welcome Dinner on June 26th from 6-8 PM in the Findlay Student Center Ballroom. This event connects incoming students and their families with current Greek students, allowing Greeks to welcome potential new members in a comfortable campus environment. The event will include a complimentary dinner with Greek students and alumni and optional tours of Greek housing and suites for incoming students.
2013-2014 Student Activities Annual Report: The Student Activities Annual Report is a reflection of the work that goes into each branch of the Student Activities Office; additionally, the report reflects the impact of students involved in campus activities throughout the year. The report can be viewed here. Greek Life statistics for the 2013-2014 academic year can be viewed on page 4 of the document, although the entire document is relevant to Greek students and stakeholders.
New Online Alumni Classnotes: The end of the spring semester brought an exciting change to Drury’s alumni classnotes system. Classnotes were previously published twice a year in the Drury Magazine. This past semester saw the development of Panther Tracks, a new online classnote system. The online system gives the alumni department the ability to release classnotes faster and include more photos and relevant media. Panther Tracks also includes a memorial section in remembrance of alumni. We encourage our Greek alumni to connect with Panther Tracks here.
Have a great summer. As always, thank you for your continued support of our Greek programs and initiatives. We’ll see you in the fall!
