Ashish Joseph – Brother Rejuvenate
I have had the pleasure of working with Ashish for about a year and a half, and he is a living example of the values of the entire Drexel Greek community and the University: academics, leadership, brotherhood, and service to the community.
Academically, Ashish has dedicated himself to being successful. As a Business Administration major in one of the top undergraduate business programs in the country at an extremely academically rigorous university, he has maintained an incredible cumulative GPA, despite his involvement in outside activities and his plan to complete his five-year academic program ahead of schedule. He has received Dean’s List honors for seven consecutive quarters and was selected for membership in Order of Omega this spring.
‘Leader’ is definitely a word I would use to describe him. While he has held a number of leadership roles in his chapter as well as serving as the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) Vice President, it is not those positions alone that define him as a leader. For me, leadership is about stepping up, doing the right thing, and inspiring others to work together toward a common goal; Ashish has exhibited all of these while I have known him. Outside of Greek Life, Ashish is involved in other student organizations such as the Drexel Finance Association and the Drexel Variety of Indian Cultural Expressions organization where he currently holds the role of president. Because of the positive interactions he has had with University staff in these roles, Ashish has been asked to represent the University as a ‘model’ student leader at orientation and other campus-wide programs.
He promotes not only brotherhood within his chapter, but with the Greek community as a whole. As a member of the MGC, Ashish has worked to bring together the organizations within the council and also raise its visibility by working collaboratively with the Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils. On quite a few occasions Ashish has been asked to serve as the representative for the council in community-wide program planning and speak on behalf of the council at formal events and meetings.
He shows his dedication to service and citizenship specifically through involvement in the SAALT Be the Change event and hands on service and philanthropic activities throughout the year.
He truly exemplifies the values of Sigma Beta Rho – Society, Brotherhood, and Remembrance – in all that he does, and I am proud to have him as a member of the Drexel Fraternity & Sorority Community. Simply put, Ashish is a great student, an involved student leader, and most importantly a genuinely good person. He is one of those students that make the long hours and stressful days worth it. He is extremely humble in his daily life but I believe he really deserves to be recognized for all of the amazing things that he does and how well he represents Sigma Beta Rho and Drexel fraternity and sorority life.
