Students get “Phired Up” About Social Excellence
On Sunday, Feb. 24, Phired Up Productions hosted an event in Old Main Chapel promoting social excellence to undergraduate students.
“Phired Up Productions” is an education firm, whose passion is to change the world. The program’s main goal is to educate students on their potential to impact the world through meaningful connections with others.
Emilee Danielson-Burke, Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life said, “‘Phired Up’ really has a pulse for what’s going on with undergraduate students, what’s important and how to better your organizations.”
The open session began at 2 p.m., and was open to all students and focused on general concepts about the importance of communication. The second session at 4:30 p.m. was directed toward students in Greek Organizations and focused on applying the general concepts from the first session to their organizations.
Presenter Matt Mattson, Co-Founder and President of Phired Up Productions created a lively atmosphere for his audience as he not only spoke about the concepts of social excellence, but he forced students out of their comfort zones to interact with strangers in the room.
The event was sponsored by the Shippensburg Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Woman’s PanHellenic Council, Inter-fraternity Council, Phi Sigma Kappa Headquarters and the Student Senate.“There are a number of companies and conferences out there that people can be sent to, but I think it’s always more important to bring something to campus,” said Danielson-Burke. “Instead of four students being able to get the experience, 140 students were able to.”
