With Bryant University’s annual Greek Week behind us, Her Campus wanted to give the readers a peek into Greek life’s Presidents of 2023. We have interviewed the eight Presidents of Greek life so that you can get to know a little more about them and their organizations. They discuss their chapter and experiences, along with their goals for this upcoming term. This is the interview of Brendan Pelkey, the President of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. 

Brendan is a junior from Westminster, Massachusetts. He is majoring in marketing with a minor in communications. A fun fact about himself is that he is ambidextrous when it comes to ping pong. 

Her Campus: Why did you run for president of DKE?

Brendan: I ran for President because it was a great opportunity to apply the leadership skills that I have. I’ve always been a guy that you can come to in a time of need and I will be there for anyone in my fraternity. I want the best for the fraternity and I’m here to achieve that. It’s a meaningful position because it allows you to create change and that’s what I want to be for Delta Kappa Epsilon, I want to create change. 

Her Campus: What are some goals you want to accomplish throughout your term? 

Brendan: As president, I do have a set of goals I want to accomplish before my time comes to an end. One is to increase the number of philanthropy events, it’s a great way to raise money for those in need and also brings the brothers together. This semester we hope to accomplish several things, the first being we currently have a team down in Florida rebuilding houses from the past hurricane season. We are very focused on the upcoming rush to meet the new freshmen and are excited for some to join the brotherhood. We are also planning our annual golf tournament which proceeds go to a scholarship fund we started in honor of two of our alumni who have passed away. Another huge goal of mine is to win Greek Week and become back-to-back champions.
