Keystone Speaker Lauren Cook

"Letters that Last A Lifetime"

"There’s a reason that you said “yes” to your organization on Bid Day. But why do you continue saying “yes” and showing up? Chances are, it is because you have found a community in Greek life. Lauren Cook shows how this community can extend beyond college. Saying “yes” to our chapters can be a lifetime experience, not just something that you “were” a part of back in the day.

Lauren shares how our lives can be shaped personally and professionally by the Greek community. Indeed, Lauren shares how her time working at Disney, traveling the country, and the ring on her finger all came from saying “yes” to not only her chapter, but the Greek community as a whole. Lauren invites members to be openly proud to identify as Greek…you never know what or who might change your life when you do.

 

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending this program, students will learn:

  • how to build a lifetime appreciation for being a Fraternity & Sorority member beyond college graduation,

  • how to engage the power of mentorship by inspiring students to seek mentors and be mentors themselves, and

  • to find pride within the Fraternity & Sorority Life community and challenge the negative stigmas held against the Greek system."
