Phi Kappa Tau: Nathan Winter
Nathan Winter is a member of Phi Kappa Tau who graduated in 2020. He is currently a Wildland Firefighter for Grayback Forestry based out of Oregon. He wanted to pursue fire to be more physically active in the outdoors and travel the country while making an impact. We see wildfires as very destructive (and they are), but in a controlled situation like a prescribed burn we can mimic pre-settlement ecology where fire used to occur every few years. So he is planning on doing a few fire seasons to step into a career dealing with controlled burns and habitat rehabilitation.
“Something I miss a lot from college is living with the guys and the 24/7 shenanigans that would occur. Just the little things like coming home to a nerf war or showing up to a slip n slide on the front lawn. Made life interesting turned bad days into good ones!”
Alpha Gamma Delta: Becca Landwehr
Becca Landwehr, a Fall 2005 member of AGD held many positions while in Greek Life including AGD’s social chair and risk manager. Additionally, she was the activities coordinator for homecoming and Greek Week. For her, Greek Week was by far the most engaging week of the year. While at Truman, she recommends that all Greek members diversify their world view and organization. She recommends students to look outside of their personal Greek bubble and use it for inspiration to improve and better their organization.
Landwehr’s favorite part of Truman Greek Life is that it allowed her to network socially and make a variety of connections. She learned how to navigate relationships, which is one the most important parts of her role as an interior designer. Learning about people and relationships has helped her be able to empathize and relate to her clients. She likes to compare her work community to the Truman Greek Community because everyone has their own organizations and groups but they also all work together as a whole to drive and deliver.

“My favorite memory from Alpha was living in a house with my 7 best friends.”

Shawn Glispie, a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. went through recruitment in the spring of 2010. While in Greek Life, Glispie held a position as NPHC Greek Life Intern.
