The Student Government Association appointed sophomore Zach Anderson to Greek life commissioner Tuesday, filling the first of 14 commissioner positions still open in the organization.
Anderson, a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, was appointed to the position in a unanimous vote.
Anderson became a member of SAE last year and served on the Greek Week Committee as the social media coordinator and as a fundraiser for his fraternity, he said.  
Benjamin Halls, another member of SAE and the class of 2014 senator, spoke on Anderson’s behalf at the meeting.
“I can’t tell you how much Zach values and takes pride in Greek life on campus,” said the sophomore writing, literature, and publishing major. “If he says something he will do it. I cannot recommend him highly enough for this position.”
As this year’s Greek life commissioner, Anderson said he hopes to promote communication between Emerson’s fraternities and sororities and involve more students in Greek life.
“There are a lot of Greek orgs and not a lot of people know about it,” said Anderson, a visual and media arts major, in an interview with the Beacon. “I want to foster a sense of community with Greek orgs. I want to make it feel more like a family within the Emerson community.”
