antelope issue 5


UNK’s Greek Preview Day is a program which provides an opportunity for prospective students to create a connection to the Greek community before attending UNK.

Greek Preview Day was open to all junior and senior high school students on Fri. Feb. 21. Their families were encouraged to attend as well. They learned from student-led sessions about different aspects of Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) at UNK.

With a little over 60 students and parents in attendance, this orientation provided valuable experiences to potential members as they embark upon their educational journey as an undergraduate student this fall.

 “Our Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) community is strong, and has exponential benefits for its members. Greek Preview Day is another way to showcase how special our community is and help future Lopers and their families learn how they can get involved,” said Kelsey Hassenstab, Interim Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life.

In addition to the attendees, there were over 25 FSL students volunteers throughout the day to welcome attendees, share experiences, answer questions, and give them a better idea on what the FSL culture looks like.

The current FSL student leaders presented on their journey to UNK and how FSL has impacted them for the better.

Included in those 25 volunteers were three council presidents; which led councils in the FSL community: Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council, and Multicultural Greek Council. They help govern and support the chapters. 

Presidents spoke about their experiences and their journey to UNK and why they joined FSL.

Lunch was provided and used as time to share experiences and answer questions in a casual setting with FSL alumni members and students at each table.

Shortly after lunch a panel consisting of FSL alumni Pete Kotsiopulos, Tricia Danburg, Courtney Burbach and Mark Van Zee shared how FSL has impacted them and continues to impact their lives not only socially, but educationally, and professionally. 

Overall, UNK’s Greek Preview Day was a great opportunity to learn more details about what it means to be a part of Fraternity and Sorority Life at UNK.
