Chi Psi alumnus launches podcast dedicated to sharing positive Greek Life stories

 

The rude gaze of public scrutiny has been harsh on fraternities and sororities lately after a series of regrettable events across the country. But a new podcast started by a Chi Psi alumnus looks to shed light on the good things happening in Greek Life.
Greek Life Today was started by Jon Moore, PΔ ’09, with the mission of elevating the fraternity and sorority community by sharing inspiring stories from chapters across North America. The first two episodes have featured a Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter that raised $579,000 for ALS research and a Pi Beta Phi chapter that orchestrates a nationally-recognized alcohol awareness program.
Br. Moore says the reaction from undergraduates, alumni, student affairs professionals, and headquarters staff has been positive, with a frequent comment being that a project like this is long overdue. He aims to release a new episode every week featuring a variety of topics from a wide range of organizations.
Br. Moore says that Br. Doug Buglewicz, Γ ’96, was influential in the decision to launch this podcast. “I was going through a hard time earlier this summer, so I called Doug to see what he thought about this idea. By the end of our conversation, he had encouraged me to pursue it and we ended up making a pilot episode about the recolonization of Alpha Gamma. After Doug’s passing, I was able to use our recorded conversation to make an audio file to play at his memorial. Even though he was gone, being able to hear his voice was a powerful thing and it helped with the grieving process. It was then that I knew I had to preserve more Greek Life stories in audio format and move forward with this project.”
You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes through this link and follow Greek Life Today on your favorite social network @GreekLifeToday.
