Devin is a recent graduate, Summer of 2016, of Southeastern Louisiana University, where he majored in General Studies. His areas of study included Marketing, Music, and Humanities. In the spring of 2013, Devin joined Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, a national men’s music fraternity. During his time as a collegiate brother in Phi Mu Alpha, he held many elected and appointed offices, which contributed greatly to his experiences in marketing and event planning. From these experiences, Devin found a love for all things marketing and changed his major from Music Education to General Studies in order to learn about marketing.
Devin gained “real world” experience in his marketing courses, as he simultaneously used his new found knowledge for his fraternity’s growth. He was appointed to the position of Fundraising Committee head, where he designed fundraisers that saw amazing returns. Devin was appointed to be the head of the Special Events Committee, where he oversaw the planning and execution of two formal balls. He was then elected to the positions of Webmaster/Public Relations Officer and Fraternity Education Officer. As the Webmaster/PRO, he started the chapter’s Instagram and Twitter account, increased the number of followers on the established Facebook Page, designed and implemented a social media campaign that greatly increased campus notoriety and social media followers. While Fraternity Education Officer, Devin was in charge of creating brotherhood within the chapter, recruiting new candidates for initiation, new member education, and planning retreats. Devin designed a new “rush” schedule that allowed the chapter to recruit, educate, and initiate new members once a semester (previously the process was a year long). Devin now holds the office of Alumni Relations Officer. He is an instrumental part in forming an Alumni Association and has implemented the use of Mail Chimp to send out monthly newsletters to keep alumni informed.
