Georgia Alpha (Georgia) Signs 30 Phikeias A Year After Re-Founding


georgia_alpha_2013_recruitmentAfter a year-long re-founding process that started in 2012, the brothers of the Georgia Alpha Chapter at the University of Georgia went into summer recruitment hoping to sign a fall pledge class of 20 men. The competitive nature of the Greek community at Georgia faced the recruitment team head on. Led by Recruitment Chairman Steven Huffman and Vice-Chairmen Grayson Shurett and Christian Walker, the chapter created a full summer schedule with the hopes of reaching their goal.

The result of their efforts was an impressive 30-man pledge class, that is currently in the Phikeia Education program under Phikeia Educator John Kimball. The class stands among the largest on campus and also stands as one of the largest pledge classes at Georgia Alpha in recent history.

The re-founding process can be tumultuous; however, the men of Georgia Alpha found a way to use the situation to their advantage by highlighting how they stood out from other chapters. They hope to use the momentum to keep the chapter steadily growing while also molding men into the greatest versions of themselves.
