We would like to announce our next Graduate Assistant Emily Jannaro who will be joining our team in Fall 18. Please help us in welcoming Emily to our Laker family.
"Hi, my name is Emmanuela "Emily" Jannaro and I'm so excited to be the new Graduate Assistant for Fraternity and Sorority Life at Grand Valley! A little bit about me- I'm from Dearborn, Michigan and I did my undergrad at Eastern Michigan University. I studied Entertainment Design and Technology, focusing in costuming and makeup design, with a minor in film studies. I joined the Alpha Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau in Fall of 2014 and immediately fell in love with not only my chapter, but the Greek experience as a whole. I served two terms as the EMU Panhellenic President and held executive committee positions during my time as an Active in AST. I chose to pursue my Master's in Higher Education to help facilitate the kinds of positive experiences I had during my time at EMU for others, and Greek Life was at the center of it all for me. I can't wait to meet you all and work with you! Fun fact; I dye my own hair."

“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr (Brother Of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.)
