How does your Phi Mu Delta experience shape your daily life? 

My experience with Fraternity has helped me grow as a moral person. I have gained confidence in my public speaking abilities. I have learned what it is like to work with a committed team and how to correct a team that is not fully functioning.

My work is relationship building and fraternity taught me the importance of having positive relationships on campus. The Phi Mu Delta experience also illustrated the need to give back to the community in a way that I could never have known.

Current Occupation and Location: Assistant Director, Alumni Relations at the University of Vermont Foundation, Burlington, Vermont

Favorite PMD memories: Of course, there are personal memories that I will cherish–like being recognized nationally or locally at the University. I often think back to what it was like when we first began this journey in 2010. I recall sitting in a room with people who were just trying to figure it all out. Unsure of what a fraternity truly was, we relied on our character and common personal values to guide us. I remember chartering in the dead cold of January 2013, a culmination of many late night planning meetings–which often led to Denny’s. Meeting other chapters at Conclave 2012 in Cleveland OH. Standing next to Rob Chartier at his wedding in August 2014.

Why is PMD important? Why are you volunteering? I do what I do simply to give back. PMD has done so much for me personally that I cannot help but want to be involved. It really is all about the chapter, where they are going and who they are.

How does your Phi Mu Delta experience shape your daily life? 

The ability to work in teams, set goals, attain those goals, and effectively manage time has been invaluable since leaving college and entering the workforce full time. It was my Greek experience that was a key point when I was networking for job interviews, and is a big part of what attracted KPMG’s recruiters to me when I was applying for an internship in Boston. You never know who you’ll meet, and being Greek is a great conversation piece that can be easily leveraged, especially if you can articulate your involvement and why it makes you valuable.

Current Occupation and Location: Audit Associate at KPMG; Atlanta, Georgia

Favorite PMD memories: I have 3 favorite memories. Being chartered in January 2013, being recognized as UVM’s 2013 Chapter of the Year, and being personally recognized as UVM’s 2014 Greek Man of the Year. Being a part of the team that brought Nu Gamma to reach such incredible milestones is one of the most humbling experiences I’ve had to date, and constantly reminds me of the value of hard work. Everything that PMD accomplished while I was at UVM was the product of persistence, campus collaborations, and teamwork both inside and outside of the chapter, and I couldn’t be prouder of what PMD became during those years.

Why is PMD important? Why are you volunteering? Phi Mu Delta has had such a big impact on my life (and continues to do so), and I want to see new generations of students have an opportunity to experience the same success and sense of fulfillment that I did. Fraternity & Sorority Life opens countless doors to the future, and I look forward to seeing PMD’s continued success, and the continued success of the men who make it such an incredible organization.

Gabe Meisenhelder ’12 G’15 | Treasurer

Former positions in the chapter: Vice President (2011) and Recruitment Chair (2011)

How does your Phi Mu Delta experience shape your daily life? 

I use my experience from PMD in a variety of ways. From just being a member I try and conduct myself in a positive manner and as a gentlemen. A lot of that I did before PMD but our values help reinforce this idea. I have also found that holding a leadership position was very valuable. I have been able to draw on that experience in a job interview and within my current job. It was not always easy or smooth, but that is how we learn.

Current Occupation and Location: Tax Associate, CPA with RSM US LLP: Charlestown, MA

Favorite PMD memories: My favorite memories of PMD as an undergrad would be performing our first ritual and becoming chartered. Having hard work payoff is very rewarding. My favorite memories as an alum are to see the chapter doing well and continuing to win awards including chapter of the year.

Why is PMD important? Why are you volunteering? I will be the first to say I was not a big fan of what I thought Greek Life was before I joined PMD. To this day I find a lot within the Greek Life as I originally thought. However I have seen what can happen when like minded people come together and have an outlet to do good things for the campus, community, or improving themselves. It is an outlet to have fun and make memories and to grow and I want others to continue to have that experience.

Current Occupation and Location: Graduate Intern: Programming Case Western Reserve University Office of Student Activities & Leadership Grad Student

Favorite PMD memories: Board game night in fall of 2015 where all the brothers came over to my apartment for food, games, and fun. It was one of the time where I felt like I was fully being myself, and knew I was surrounded by people that I loved and reciprocated that same feeling.

Why is PMD important? Why are you volunteering? It’s connections to other people like nothing else and that have been fortified as lifelong. I volunteer to keep my relationships alive, to continue to grow in them, and to make new ones.

Former positions in the chapter: Vice President

How does your Phi Mu Delta experience shape your daily life? 

Phi Mu Delta taught me a lot about leadership and team work. When the two come together it is the only way to successfully complete what is at hand and achieve goals. As a Project Engineer I am responsible with coordination a lot all at once and have to rely on a skilled team to assist in completing project goals in time and on budget. This is only a brief example of how I am putting to use so many of the awesome things I have gained from my PMD experience.

Current Occupation and Location: Project Engineer / Project Superintendent; New Jersey

Favorite PMD memories: There are way too many awesome PMD memories to pick out just one favorite! My college years & post grad years would not be the same without my PMD family!

Why is PMD important? Why are you volunteering? PMD has made a huge impact on my life and has become a family to me. I want to take all of the great things I gotten from PMD and be able to give back to the chapter even half as much as I have taken out from it.
