Jack Kreman

“I think that at UNK everyone leaves with a high quality education. It's really underrated in the academic aspect, but I think the part that Greek life adds to it, is that you have to work together with other people.” Kreman also says “get involved with everything, do everything. There is never anything bad that comes from saying yes when someone asks you to get involved, so take advantage of it, because no matter how much you put in, you're getting six times, seven times back. I think the other thing is don't forget about UNK. When you graduate, come back, visit your chapter, mentor, and advise, because we need good people to come back and advise.”
