I never thought that the experience of being an ELC would benefit me in so many ways in my career. The challenge of walking into a new place every three days gave me so much confidence in handling changes and challenges, something my job as a Wall Street lawyer requires me to do every day. That job gave a shy and introverted boy from the sticks of South Georgia the skills that have helped me be successful in the big city. I postponed law school to be an ELC and have never regretted doing that.”

“I never thought my time on staff would have offered me so many opportunities that I never would have had.  I’ve explored cool cities like Charleston, Portland, Houston, and Nashville.  I’ve made countless lifelong friends and professional connections.  But even better than those things, I’ve discovered my passion for higher education and completely changed my intended career path.  Being a consultant has been such an exciting experience that I will be forever thankful for.”

ELC 2016-2017

I never thought I would connect with the other consultants so quickly with living and working with them, along with all of the other staff here at headquarters. It is outstanding that I am able to build a network and make those relationships now so that when I am on the road I know I can go to anyone in any department whether it is harm reduction or alumni engagement and know that they will help me out even when I am 500 miles away from headquarters. I also never thought I would get the chance to visit not only chapters but also actually visit in the new locations I will be visiting. Whether it is historical sites or trying out new food places that I have seen on the food network. I never thought I would have opportunities to meet and help undergraduate members but also meet local alumni. Whether it is High Pi’s or AAB/ACB members whenever I wear my letters outside I can immediately connect with a whole new group of brothers that I have never met before.
