Campus Cutie – Eric Eichelberger

This week’s cutie is the president of Marquette Inter-Fraturnity Counsil and a member of Kappa Sigma. Eric, who goes by Ike, is a junior from Brookfield. Ike is studying Criminology and LA, with minors in Spanish for the Business Professions and Business Administration. Here’s what our cutie has to say about Greek life and his life!
  • What does being Greek mean to you? 
    It means joining a brotherhood that you will always be able to rely on throughout life due to your common
    experiences and fellowship.
  • What has Greek life taught you about yourself? About leadership? 
    I have learned that I am capable of rallying others around me.  I consider myself a quiet person, but joining
    Kappa Sigma has shown me that I should always speak to my convictions.  If I’m right, I’ll get support.  If I’m
    wrong, people will call me out.  Either way, I can learn and gain new perspective.
    Leadership is not always being at the forefront managing everything.  The best leaders are those that lead by a
    positive example that inspires others to match their standard and trusting others with tasks in areas they may
    specialize in.  Whether you’re a president or the bro or sister that will work hard at any and every event, let
    what you do be what you want to see in others who will come after you.
  • What advice would you give to someone who is unsure if Greek Life is right for them? 
    If you never check it out, you will never know what it is really like.  Get to know the members of this Greek
    community.  Stop by a house during rush week.  Talk to someone in letters in a class.  That will be how you find
    out if Greek life is right for you.  Our doors and insights are open anytime.
