The newly installed Florida Xi Chapter at Florida Gulf Coast University won seven awards at the Fraternity and Sorority Life Awards Banquet on Monday, the most of any chapter on campus. The chapter received awards for Volunteer Organization of the Year, Community Service and Volunteer Relationships, Advisor of the Year and The Chapter of the Year Award. The Chapter of the Year recipient is recognized for excelling in all areas of Fraternity life, including service, scholarship and brotherhood.
There were also three chapter members who were recognized with individual awards. Joey Fasanelli was awarded the New Member of the Year award after joining in Fall 2015. Two chapter members, Ricky Ysidron and Paul Olivera, were also recognized with SOAR Awards, that celebrates their individual achievements and leadership within the community.
The FGCU Greek Community takes pride in leadership, scholarship, and service, and the members of Florida Xi have been very active on campus and within the Greek Community, going above and beyond in demonstrating these values. Since being colonized in September 2014, the men of Florida Xi have worked tirelessly to become greater versions of themselves, not only as individuals, but together as a chapter, and will only continue to do great things.
