Meet The Greek Intern

Name: Adam Fleischman

Year: Senior

Major: Business Economics

Organization: Alpha Epsilon Pi

Life Motto: Perseverance Pays Off

Favorite Thing About Greek Life: Greek Life has given me more opportunities than I could ever imagine. So many doors have been opened that I don't think would have been if I didn't join Greek Life. I have a growing network of people who I can contact for help with anything and everything. Being in Greek Life has changed my life for the better!

Favorite Thing about Oneonta: I love the people that I have met and the atmosphere of this school. In life, a lot of people come and go. But thanks to Oneonta, I have made lifelong friends and memories.

Something You Can't Live Without: Laptop and Phone

Meet the Bloggers: Phi Sigma Sigma

Name: Katie Ritchie

Year: Junior

Major: Majoring in English with a minor in Business

Organization: Phi Sigma Sigma

Life Motto: As cliché as it sounds, “everything happens for a reason”

Favorite Thing About Greek Life: Greek life has provided me with life long friends whom have helped to shape me into who I am.  I have such a different bond with the sisters in my sorority that I don’t think could have been formed if I didn’t join Greek Life.  No matter what day or time, there is always someone that I can call to hit the library, grab a bite to eat, or just hang out!  It also forced me to get involved on campus in ways that I probably wouldn’t have on my own.

Favorite Thing about Oneonta:  First of all, I just love the atmosphere of being upstate.  I’m from Long Island and there is nothing like being in Oneonta during the fall to watch the mountains turn from green to gold.  I also love that I can always find a familiar face wherever I go! 

Something you can’t live without: My planner, coffee and my laptop

Anything else you want your readers to know about you?: I also write for the Oneonta chapter of HerCampus.  HerCampus is an online blog, and our chapter focuses on all things Oneonta! You should definitely check it out if you haven’t already!
