The LC Life

Alex von Springer

Hello, Im Alex von Springer and I am a Leadership Consultant employed by the Fraternity for the 20142015 school year. Originally a Texas girl from Dallas, I attended Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, La. I graduated in December 2013 with a degree in history and German (and I did it in only three and a half years)! While I am not exactly sure what my professional career will look like, I plan to pursue my masters degree in Business Administration after I complete my work with Kappa. As an undergraduate, I served my chapter as Corresponding Secretary and Risk Management Chairman. I thoroughly enjoyed both of these positions and the growth that the responsibilities of these positions offered me. Kappa inspired me to work toward reaching my potential as a leader among my peers, rather than sitting back and waiting for things to be done.

During the inspiration period of my freshman year, a fabulous young LC, Emily Fetcho, Butler, visited my chapter. Her love for Kappa and insightful advice for me as a chapter officer sparked my interest in applying for the position. Other wonderful LCs visited throughout my undergraduate career and I was motivated by each and every one of them, hoping that one day I could give back to Kappa on an international level like they were. Thankfully, I am now traveling the continent as an LC, striving to inspire members of this Fraternity to lead and to motivate others in their chapters, college campuses, and their communities!

As Im starting to find out, there are some things I didnt know about being an LC before I took this position, and there are some things that a chapter should know about us before we arrive. So here we go with my BuzzFeed-esque list of the things you may not know about being an LC.

Some Things You May Not Know About Being an LC

1. We are recent college graduates, most of us are only three to six months out of school, so we are very familiar with the demands of college life and of chapter members. We know what everyone feels like trying to juggle school, Kappa, and extracurriculars!



2. Being young women very close to members in age, we enjoy the same things chapters doNetflix, mani/pedis, working out, magazines, reality TV and late night frozen yogurt.



3. We dont have a permanent home for eight months out of the year since we are constantly traveling. Because of this, we live out of two suitcases for weeks on end. If chapter members run errands to a pharmacy or store, please ask us to come along for some toiletry refills or just some fresh air you wont believe how happy we will be about the invite.



4. We often work through the weekends for several weeks at a time without seeing our family, friends, or boyfriendswe get lonely! Please feel free to approach us with friendly non-Kappa conversations in your free time. We dont want to butt in on a conversation!



5. As employees of the Fraternity, we love Kappa just as much as you do and are working to help you improve your chapter so please take our instruction to heart. We dont want to see a response like this we want to work WITH you!
