Maria Rovira, a Florida International University graduate and current student in the Higher Education Master’s Program, was recently the recipient of the Order of Omega William J. Brennan Graduate Assistant Fellowship.
Applicants must be currently enrolled full-time or part-time in an accredited master’s degree program in higher education, student personnel, or related field, currently employed part-time or a graduate assistant with direct or indirect responsibility for advising Greek Life and/or Order of Omega and enrolled at a college/university with an Order of Omega chapter in good standing with Headquarters. Only eight fellowships were awarded this year at the Association of Fraternity Advisors (AFA) Annual Meeting held in Denver, Colorado.
Maria also took part in the AFA/Order of Omega Case Study Competition held at the annual meeting. This case study was an opportunity for graduate students to test their problem solving skills in the area of fraternity or sorority advising. Maria was paired with another second year graduate student attending the same conference. The pair had the strongest and most resourceful solution and were awarded first place. This is Maria’s second case study completion win. She was awarded first place for the Southeastern Panhellenic Conference/Order of Omega competition in March 2008.
