Alumni Helping to Revive Greek Organization

With the leadership of several alumni and current students, the Phi-O's, a Greek fraternity, have been reinstated on campus at the University of Dubuque.

A small group of dedicated alums expressed interest to the Advancement Office about reinstating.  Phi-O Sean Kessel (C'09) volunteered to lead the reinstating process and has been successful in his efforts.  Kessel worked closely with the Student Activities Office to get the organization recognized on campus again.  

Any group of students seeking recognition as a social Greek organization must follow guidelines and meet the requirements of the Office of Student Activities, Greek Council, the Student Government Association, and the University of Dubuque. 

The requirements included getting student signatures to start a student organization with four founding members.  Current Zeta students played an important role in the recruitment of the new founding Phi-O members.  Once the student organization was approved, the next step was to submit an application to be reviewed by the Greek Executive Board, Greek Advisory Board, and Greek Council Advisors.  Once the application was reviewed by the organizations, Kessel participated in a Greek Council meeting in which approval was granted for the Phi-Os to reinstate. 

Now that these steps have taken place and they are officially recognized on campus, the Phi-Os will be able to have a pledge class this spring semester.  Kessel will play a major role in passing on documents, history, and traditions to the new student leaders.  

Thank you to all the alumni and students who have been involved in the reinstating process! As a campus community, we look forward to welcoming the next generation of Phi-Os back on campus!
