Setter Spotlight: Greek Life

News Story

College can be a home away from home for many students, and our Setters involved in Greek Life know that better than most. Learn more about their unique experiences as fraternity brothers and sorority sisters at Pace!

Going Greek is a great way to get involved both on campus and within the local community. Membership in a fraternity or sorority enhances the co-curricular experience by providing numerous opportunities for personal growth, networking, relationship building, leadership development, academic success, and more. But don’t take our word for it! Hear from current Pace students who got involved in Greek life:

Kappa Delta Pi President Kealy Costigan ’20 has a passion for advocacy work. She’s pursuing a dual degree in childhood education (undergrad) and special education (master’s), hoping to create a safe space for ALL her future students. “Being president [...] allows me to combine my passions for service and education. I am motivated to give back because I believe in paying it forward.” Costigan has worked diligently to raise awareness about children with learning differences, and in particular, children with Autism. “In high school, I had a teacher whose room I could always be myself in. That is the environment I want to create,” she told us.

First-gen student Nick Louisma ’20 wanted the best of both worlds when he came to Pace: a major in information systems with a minor in business. Now, he’s honing his skills in cybersecurity while hoping to one day earn his MBA. Among his many positions both on- and off-campus, he acted as the president of Delta Sigma Pi, not to mention pitching his own student-run business. “Pace Keeping [was] a business pitch that a couple of students and I were working on during our freshman and sophomore year of college,” he explained. The business would have offered a dorm room cleaning service on the PLV Campus, and while it didn’t end up happening, “We learned a lot throughout the pitch and throughout the process of getting it started.”

Marine Corps veteran Sukh Singh ’21 is passionate about advocacy and service. Through his work with the Student Veterans Association and Alpha Phi Delta, he hopes to one day become an educator just like the ones who inspired him. “I think I am a natural leader and my core ideals of serving people will help me become an educator who stresses advocacy and service,” Singh said. Alpha Phi Delta, for those who don’t know, focus their philanthropic efforts to lending much-needed support for veterans experiencing homelessness through the Operation Home Front.

Kappa Delta sister Alyssa Trimm ’20 specializes in a variety of areas. From film to English writing and literature to extensive experience in design, she’s ready for any challenge—and she’s also a huge Jeopardy fan. She was recruited to Kappa Delta in her first year at Pace, quickly becoming involved in the Panhellenic Council and adding numerous leadership positions including one on their executive board. “I had gone to an all-girls high school and missed that sense of camaraderie when I came to college,” she told us. “Kappa Delta is my home away from home at Pace, and it has given me so many opportunities. I even had the chance to visit Dallas last summer for our national convention.”
