Inside the EO: Emily Coulouras

What is your name? Emily Coulouras

Where are you originally from? Sacramento, CA

Where did you attend college and what chapter were you a part of there? University of Arizona/Beta Epsilon

What was your major in college? Communication and Alpha Phi ;)

What was your plan post-graduation? I was an ELC for two years and an ELS for one year—my post grad plan was Alpha Phi!

Why did you decide to work for Alpha Phi International Fraternity? I met an amazing ELC when I was a senior (shout out to Erica Kwiatkowski) and I had the pleasure to spend endless hours a day with her. After working so closely with her and producing something that would forever change my chapter for the better I knew I wanted to have that impact on other Alpha Phi chapters. That was just the beginning of my career at Alpha Phi. I came back to work at Alpha Phi because there is no place like it. I love the work I am able to accomplish and the people I get to interact with in this organization.

What is your job title? Program Manager, Collegiate Recruitment

How long have you been working for Alpha Phi? I worked for Alpha Phi for 3 years, took a very short 6 month break and returned January 2016 to begin my next venture with the Fraternity!

What is your favorite memory of Alpha Phi—as a collegian, alumna, or staff member? My collegiate experience in Alpha Phi was unforgettable—my favorite memories came from my 3 years living in our house. There was always something going on, someone to hang out with and excursions to go on!

What do you like best about working at the Executive Office? I love that even though our office is based in Evanston, IL we work with chapters and volunteers all over North America! Each day at work provides something new and there is definitely never a dull moment!

What are some of your goals for the next few years? I want to live in one place for more than a year! I’m focusing on one thing at a time!

Do you have any advice for current collegiate members? Don’t skip anything! College is four short years and then sisterhood events and exchanges are no longer planned for you. Take advantage of all of the opportunities Alpha Phi gives you because you will never regret one moment. Be proud to be an Alpha Phi because this organization is spectacular!
