Greek Life at C-SC gets Phired Up!
Wednesday, October 27, 2010
CANTON, Mo. – After years of fundraising and saving, Culver-Stockton College’s Panhellenic Council brought Phired Up Productions to campus on Sunday, Oct. 17 for an afternoon recruitment workshop.
Phired Up Productions is an education firm providing recruitment services to membership organizations. They teach groups to recruit more high quality members.
C-SC welcomed Phired Up performance consultant Jessica Gendron to facilitate this experience. Gendron’s background includes national sorority headquarters consulting and campus Greek life advising. She is also a national trainer of Dynamic Recruitment as well as a member of Alpha Sigma Tau sorority. Most notably for Culver-Stockton, she is a former student of Bob Dudolski, C-SC interim dean of student life.
“I was very happy to have Jessica provide her expertise in organizational recruitment and social excellence to our sorority community,” stated Dudolski. “Her presentation helped the women who attended learn how to motivate their fellow chapter members, increase their level of networking across campus with fellow students and learn life skills that will help prepare them for their professional careers.”
Women from C-SC’s three national sorority chapters: Chi Omega, Sigma Kappa and Sigma Sigma Sigma, attended the workshop to learn about the dynamic recruitment process.
Not only did the women learn about recruitment and how to get the best members – they also learned basic leadership and communication skills. Gendron addressed common problems that chapters may encounter and gave simple solutions that anyone could follow.
“We have seen a significant increase in the interest by new members to join our fraternity and sorority community this fall, and I believe that Jessica’s ‘Phired Up’ presentation will help our sorority chapters continue their great work of providing a quality experience to their members and the broader campus community,” said Dudolski.
Last year, C-SC’s Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils were presented with the highest Greek awards in the region at the Association for Fraternal Leadership and Values conference in St. Louis.
