Aaron Bachenheimer wants to emphasize a full college experience to the Greek system’s newest members from the very start.
A stronger orientation is one part of the new director of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life’s vision for the system.
Bachenheimer, who was named director of the office at the end of September, said he has two goals he hopes to achieve in his new position.
His first priority is to provide Greek students with advising and tutoring options to keep a strong emphasis on academics.
“The fraternities and sororities have been really receptive to our advising and education,” he said.
The other main idea is a more substantial orientation program, which will make sure new members become well-rounded students.
Bachenheimer has served as interim coordinator for fraternity and sorority life since February.
Dean Blackburn, assistant dean of students, said Bachenheimer earned the promotion.
