Beta Omicron alumnus named Northwestern State Director of Greek Life

Written by Beta Omicron Chapter

Shayne Creppel, an alumnus of the Beta Omicron Chapter (Northwestern State), has been named Director of Greek Life at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana.

Creppel advises 15 fraternity and sorority chapters, in addition to coordinating the activities of the NSU Interfraternity Council, College Panhellenic Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, and Order of Omega. In this role, he also develops and implements educational programming on risk management, sexual assault prevention, anti-hazing, and alcohol safety, in addition to overseeing all recruitment and intake activities for the Office of Greek Life.

A key figure in the Department of Student Life, Creppel also advises the Student Government Association (SGA), aids in the successful execution of all student body elections, and serves as Budget Unit Head for the organization, the SGA Speaker Fee, Organizational Relief Fund, and Student Trust Fund. You’ll also find him in the classroom as an instructor of University Studies 1000.

Shayne has been able to live his dream of working at his alma mater, having earned a Master of Arts degree in Student Personnel Service in 2013 and a Bachelor or Science degree in Hospitality Management & Tourism in 2010. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in higher education administration. Creppel previously worked as NSU’s assistant director of Student Life and as an academic advisor & instructor for the NSU Academic & Career Engagement Center.

For Creppel, every day presents a new challenge and a new reward. “I get to work with the most involved students on campus. It is very fulfilling being able to see a student develop into a leader through membership in the Greek community. Advising these 15 very different groups as we all work toward a common goal is just about the best job I could ever imagine doing.”

He holds professional affiliations with the Association of Fraternity/ Sorority Advisors, NASPA- Student Affairs Professionals in High Education, Association of College Unions International, and the Louisiana Association of College and University Student Personnel Administrators.

As an undergraduate, Creppel served as NSU Student Body President for the 2007-2008 school year and held leadership positions in Pi Kappa Phi. As chaplain and historian, he was able to develop several programs that are still in use by the chapter. Creppel helped revive the annual Founders’ Day Banquet and established the Beta Omicron Chapter Archives in the university’s research center.
