Office of Student Life Hires New Greek Advisor
Please join us in welcoming Melissa Lang to UC Berkeley as an Advisor and Program Coordinator for Greek Life. We are very excited to have Melissa join our team and we believe her perspective and skills will help the Greek community to both surpass current challenges and continue to realize excellence in the years to come.

Melissa is currently finishing her Masters degree in Education with an emphasis in Higher Education Leadership at the University of Arkansas, where she has served as a Greek Advisor for the past two years. In addition to her academic career, Melissa has worked as a Legislative Assistant in DC and served as a consultant for Alpha Omicron Pi. Through her experiences with Greek Affairs she has advised Panhellenic and co-advised NPHC. She has coordinated the expansion process for Panhellenic, advised to the Greek programming board and Up 'Til Dawn and facilitated multiple leadership programs such as Greek 101 and a new member retreat. Melissa also initiated new programs such as the first annual Greek Week and Hot Pink Ribbon, an organization where sorority women educate other sorority women about violence against women. She completed her internships with Judicial Affairs at the University of Arkansas and in Orientations at George Mason University.

I am sure you will all have an opportunity to get to know Melissa personally over the coming months and the next few years. I know she is looking forward to working with the entire Greek community and our colleagues for quite some time. She hopes to make it to Cal by the beginning of July!
