Summer Fun

As summer nears its completion we look back on what has been going on with the lamb chops of Mizzou these past couple of months.  

Junior Ryan Prsha and the rest of the chapter has been hard at work trying to recruit a great fall class of guys.  We have approximately 15 guys signed for the fall and are looking to close the class once we reach around 30 individuals.  A big thanks to Prsha and his work not only at formal recruitment but also at planning and overseeing some fantastic informal rush events.

Many of our brothers have spent there summer busy working for internships not only across the country but across the world.  Junior Andrew Krokstrom has been working on capitol hill working all summer interning for a Missouri rep.  Senior Nick Smith spent the majority of his summer doing an internship in Germany.  These are just a couple of the many interesting and exciting internships that our brothers are taking part in.  Hopefully these experiences serve as great life lessons and tools for everyone moving forward.

Along with the recruitment efforts, the chapter has been busy finding sponsorship for our annual philanthropy Watermelon Fest.  Already the chapter has several corporate sponsorship for the event and we look forward to working with these business along with our community to raise money and food to benefit the North American Food Drive.  If you or your business would be interested in sponsoring this years event contact Danny Forman at

Sophomore Danny Forman and Senior Nick Smith have also spent parts of their summer laying out the blueprints to restarting an outreach student organization known as Greek Advocates.  Greek Advocates is a student outreach program through the RSVP Center that hopes to educate the Greek Community on the issues of Power-Based Personal Violence cases.  Along with educating individuals on the issue, the group plans on informing the greek community on what steps they can take to proactively help diminish and reduce these cases from occurring in our community.  Hopefully these efforts will help our community change for the better in this specific issue.

It's been a great couple of months away from full time classes but I think it is safe to assume that the Gamma Kappa chapter is ready to get back to their studies and involvement at Mizzou.
