Greek Life would like to recognize Evan VanDenEinde as Greek Man of the Month for November.

VanDenEinde, a nursing major from Willmar, Minnesota, is a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and has served as vice president of recruitment, intramural chair and part of the recruitment committee.

He said Greek Life has allowed him to grow as a leader.

“I have seen past leaders succeed and learned from them how to become a great leader,” VanDenEinde said. “Being in Greek Life has given me opportunities to impact not only our organization, but the campus and the community as well.”

VanDenEinde is involved on campus as the Interfraternity Council president. He also participates in hall government and intramurals. Off campus, he is involved in the American Legion pancake feed, highway cleanup and helping to rake lawns across the community.

Academic success is part of SigEp’s philosophy of diligence, which VanDenEinde works to uphold. His accomplishments include being on the dean’s list for three semesters.

Greek Life would like to recognize Kylee Essen as Greek Woman of the Month for November.

Essen, a nursing major from Rosemount, Minnesota, is a member of Alpha Xi Delta and serves as chapter president.

She is a State A Thon fundraising co-chair, a member of the Honors College Dean’s Student Advisory Council and will serve as the foundation support director and honor board representative for Alpha Xi Delta next semester.

Essen is active in the community through volunteer work at Feeding Brookings and Brookings Backpack Project.

She exemplifies Alpha Xi Delta’s value of education through her accomplishments: earning the College of Nursing and Honors College Dean’s List for three years, being an Alpha Xi Delta Foundation Scholarship recipient and receiving the Honors College Student Organization Award of Excellence.

Greek Life has helped Essen become a well-rounded person.

“I have met my best friends through Alpha Xi Delta, I have been supported through nursing school and I have become more confident in my capabilities as a leader,” Essen said. “Greek Life has helped me grow into a better person and I can’t imagine how different my SDSU experience would have been if I hadn’t joined Alpha Xi Delta.”
