Greek adviser recognized by the National Panhellenic Council

David Hotz, New Mexico State University's Greek adviser and interim director of campus activities, will receive the outstanding Panhellenic adviser award for his nine years of service on Oct. 11 at the National Panhellenic Conference in Palm Springs, Calif.


s named outstanding Panhellenic adviser out of more than 600 campuses in the United States and Canada.

"I was very surprised and very honored," Hotz said. "However, the reward reflects the hard work of the sororities -- on campus and in the community."

The Panhellenic Council at NMSU serves as the governing body for five sororities on campus.

Hotz is responsible for the "umbrella operations" of the Greek community at NMSU. The Greek community includes organizations and programs such as the Inter-Fraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, three Greek honor societies, Greek Week, ANGLE (Advocating NMSU Greek Life and Education), GAMMA (Greeks Advocating Mature Management of Alcohol), Move-In Day, College Bowl and teaching the Greek Leadership class on campus.

Hotz said the major accomplishment during the last nine years is that the sororities are working together with spirit, cooperation and determination.

"The Panhellenic Council has a strong identity on campus and it continues to grow as a major student voice at NMSU," he said.

Nine council officers will attend the ceremony with Hotz to claim three of the 16 national awards, honoring the NMSU Panhellenic Council with more awards than any university in the nation. Along with outstanding Panhellenic adviser, the council will receive national awards for leadership and overall excellence.
