Greek Life gains new Assistant Director

August 26, 2011

“I like the big picture of Greek Life,” says Billy Bernard, in talking about his goals for student involvement at Monmouth, “I like the idea of building a community on campus”. Bernard, who recently finished acquiring his Master’s Degree from Kent state, was hired to replace Daniel Reck as the new Assistant Director of Greek Life, Leadership, and Involvement at Monmouth College earlier this year.

Bernard is excited to start working with the Greek Life and student organizations that are a part of Monmouth College, having experienced Greek Life first hand as a member of the Pi Lambda Phi fraternity at Baldwin-Wallace College. “I know the impact being involved on campus can have, especially from my own experiences” says Bernard, who sites joining his fraternity and moving on-campus his junior year as two things that greatly impacted his college career – and his career after college.

As the new Director of Greek Life, Leadership, and Involvement, Bernard is ready to start getting to know the organizations on campus. He plans to start helping IFC (Interfraternity Counsel) move forward, raise the academic goals for the student organizations on campus, and begin to put a new emphasis on service at Monmouth.

One of the ways Bernard hopes to encourage service in Monmouth students is by starting “Saturdays of Service” where students would meet to complete projects, like raking leaves for senior citizens, and then reflecting on their tasks at the end of the day. “I want to create a culture of service on campus,” says Bernard, “and one of the ways we can do that is by having programs more often.”

Students can look forward to seeing Bernard on campus or in his office in downstairs Stockdale if they have any questions or, Bernard says happily, “if they just want to come say hi to me!”
