Committee Chairs

Committees are the muscles of the body of a fraternity. They lead and carry the critical functions of the brotherhood under the direction of the executive board. Our committee chairs ensure that we are able to have our events, we keep our grades up, maintain the house, and build the brotherhood. Without the leadership of our chairs, and participation from every brother in the inner workings of the chapter, we would not be the organization that has proven itself to be a shining star at Bucknell and within the national fraternity. Below are a list of what each committee does and the current committee chair(s):

Academics Committe

An incredibly important and powerful committee in Chi Phi, the Academics Committee rules over the academic well-being of the fraternity with a watchful eye. Duties of the committee include: keeping the fraternity updated on its academic standing; rewarding brothers for academic success; and organizing any tutor/academic help sessions for brothers.

Activities Committee

The Activities Committee organizes intramural sports teams, trips to sporting and other events, as well as brotherhood and alumni events. He works closely alongside the social chairs and the Peer Advisor to ensure a variety of events throughout the semester.

Brian Kerlin (Class of 2018)

Awards Committee

Each year, the Awards Committee submits documents and information to the national office that show the chapter’s activities and our progress towards continual success. These documents are reviewed and awards are given to chapters around the country. The Phi Lambda Theta chapter has won multiple awards for the past few year and it is the job of the Awards Committee to gather and present the information for the awards judging to the national office to keep this streak of success continuing.
