Greek Leaders Use Retreat to Build Community

About 40 Samford University Greek community leaders convened Jan. 28 for a kickoff retreat just before spring semester classes began. 

Consultants from Rise Consulting guided the group, which included chapter officers and members, through a number of activities. There were small and large group discussions, some lectures, and students were also encouraged to share their experiences throughout the day on Twitter. This allowed different learning styles to be implemented, said Denny Bubrig, Samford’s director of Greek life.

“We felt it was important to have that third party involved. They gave a different perspective and allowed everyone to be honest about where we go from here,” said Bubrig.

The retreat allowed the Greek community to work on team building, leadership skills, strategic planning, community building and more. The leaders also had the opportunity for open dialog and discussed various needs within the chapters and how to move forward as a collected group.
