In early July, Mount Union brother Cody Rohaley, Mount Union ’14 (pictured center) traveled to Bloomington, Indiana to intern at Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI).

UIFI is a five day long leadership institute that brings fraternity and sorority leaders from across the country together to discuss what it means to be a leader in the community. Participants are pushed out of their comfort zone to meet new people and learn about their personal commitment to their fraternity or sorority.

Rohaley had previously attended UIFI last summer where he grew as a leader and as a brother. UIFI helped him discover his passion for the fraternity and sorority movement, so he decided to apply for the internship. He wanted to give back and help fraternity and sorority leaders from across North America discover that same passion.Rohaley was one of 24 interns chosen out of a hundred plus applications for the internship. During his internship, Rohaley and his intern partner Kristina Wenner, a sister of Kappa Kappa Gamma and recent alumna of Arizona State University, worked on coordinating travel arrangements for participants, guided communication on the Facebook page, store runs, participant and facilitator airport pickups, testimonials and guided a general session discussion on service.

This is the third time in Epsilon’s recent history to have a UIFI intern. Marcus Zappa Mount Union ’12 and Alex Koelher, Mount Union ’07 were previous interns.

“By far my favorite part was seeing the UIFI magic happen from the other side. UIFI is an experience unlike any other and getting to see those men and women experience tremendous self-growth and make deep, personal connections with total strangers over the course of five days was something I can’t put into words. Kristina and I were the glue to the week and UIFI couldn’t have happened without the interns doing all the behind-the-scenes work.” Rohaley says.
