At Campus Live, we want to highlight the Greek community at Texas Tech. In this month’s Greek Spotlight, we conducted a Q&A with Texas Tech’s student body president, Robbie Meyer.
We asked Meyer a few questions about his campaign, his involvement in his fraternity, what he like about LBK, and much more.
Q: What positions have you held within your fraternity?
A: Member-At-Large, Greek Relations Chair, Co-Alumni Relations Chair, Community Involvement Chair.
Q: What else are you involved in at Texas Tech?
A: Mortar Board, Red Raider Camp, Red Raider Orientation
Q: Tell us about your campaign race for Student Body President?
A: It was a wild, crazy ride. I met so many amazing people and had an absolute blast. With that being said, I never want to do it again. It was a time where my life was consumed with campaigning and, as a result, my academic and social life had a rough time.
Q: How has your fraternity experience helped you as Student Body President?
A: Pike has taught me how to be a leader. It is important to understand that you will not always be right, but it is also valuable to know how to react when you aren’t right. Composure is everything when you are a leader. Pike also showed me that you are only as good as your weakest link. You must work to ensure that everyone is being supported or you are destined to fail.
Q: Tell us about your fraternities philanthropy?
A: PIKE has been big proponents in raising money for both St. Jude and Cycle for Life in the past. We are now hoping to revamp an event we did in the past called the PIKE Fireman’s Challenge which will involve the sororities on campus and the Lubbock community. The money raised will be for the UMC Timothy J Harnar Burn Center and help fund a camp for children with severe burns.
