Behind the Greek Success

Doug Bennet

Doug Bennet

During the past three years, URI fraternities and sororities members have taken the stage to receive numerous programming excellence awards. But behind the scenes, stand a number of dedicated alumni who quietly give their time and talent to support Greek success.

The Greek Advisory Committee, the Office of Student Life, the Fraternity Managers Association, and the Center for Student Leadership want them to bask in the light. Greek Life annually partnered with Rhody basketball to present an annual Greek Life Alumni Award of Distinction.

This past winter, Doug Bennet ’77 received the award. A member of the Interfraternity Alumni Council and a Chi Phi alumnus, Bennet helped develop Chi Phi’s new $2.2 million home, which now has a flourishing Chi Phi chapter. When a brother was seriously injured last fall, Bennet was by his side.

Bill ’68 and Marian Bowers ’66 received the 2008 award in recognition of their 50-plus years of commitment to Greek Life. Bill is an alumnus of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and Marian is an alumna of Alpha Chi Omega sorority.
