• Jacob Bumpus, Pi Kappa Alpha, Noah Carter of Alpha Tau Omega; Gary (BJ) Harris, Alpha Tau Omega; Austin Street, Kappa Alpha Order; and Logan Wallace, Alpha Tau Omega, received scholarships from the Richard Miller Foundation.

Emerging fraternity leaders from across North America were invited to attend one of the two sessions this winter. In addition, Aristeo (Ari) Ruiz, Kappa Alpha Order, was selected to be a facilitator/mentor for the program. Ruiz, who was selected from more than 100 applicants, is the first Austin Peay student to ever be selected for this honor.

“It is an honor to see the excitement that our students have to participate in programs sponsored by the NIC,” said Stephen Dominy, coordinator of APSU Fraternity & Sorority Affairs. Since 2014, Austin Peay has had more than 115 students participate in NIC hosted programs. The University is one of the largest constituent groups in the country using NIC programming to enhance the fraternity and sorority community while influencing the culture and activities on the college campus.
