New Student Life Leadership, Programming

“Plymouth After Dark” evening programs, new field trip experiences, and an enhanced Greek life program are among the highlights of PSU’s renewed Student Life Office. Director of Student Life Tevis Bryant and Assistant Director Kadie Dickson have instituted many new ideas since taking the reins this summer.

Greek life has become more visible on campus, with new office space in the HUB and coordination by a new Inter Greek Council, and Bryant is leading PSU’s locally based organizations through national affiliation. “I founded Psi Sigma Phi, Rowan University’s first multicultural fraternity, and I’ve been through the process and know the benefits,” he says. “Our Greek community is changing, and we’re providing current students with additional support, and by aligning with national organizations, PSU students are networked to a bigger world.”

Increased late-night and weekend events have earned strong followings, and off-campus trips to Boston and New Hampshire destinations are popular. Collaborations with Residential Life, the Educational Theatre Cooperative, the Counseling Center, and Academic Affairs have resulted in a great diversity of programs, and students are kept informed through increased outreach, including social media posts, which have increased by 100 percent.

Student Life is also forging a new connection with the National Society of Leadership and Success, the nation’s largest leadership honor society. Students with exceptional academic standing or leadership potential will be nominated for membership.
