Within the Rutgers-Camden community, culture and energy rush through the campus daily. This energy is often evident at student events, especially those hosted by members of Greek life. While Greek life makes its mark on campus through various fundraisers and accomplishments, one often doesn’t see the mastermind leading the students who’ve gone Greek. If you were to walk into the Office of Student Involvement, you’ll see a colorful desk at the back, and, if you’re really lucky, you’ll see Lindsay Wolf sitting there with a smile. Despite there being thirteen established organizations within the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs (OFSA), there is only one Lindsay Wolf. As the OFSA’s Program Coordinator, Wolf guides each of these organizations’ leaders through every step of their leadership journey. Throughout the year, over a hundred student-led events happen within the Greek community. With Wolf’s helpful tips and her unquenchable passion for engagement, she is an essential asset for facilitating student growth.
When Wolf completed high school, she was looking to try something new. Though her parents didn’t attend college, she wanted to leave her comfort zone and attend university. Once she arrived at West Chester University, Wolf began studying to become an English teacher. Soon, she joined Phi Mu’s—the second oldest sorority in the U.S.—chapter at West Chester, where she discovered her love for connecting and communicating with others. After talking through her post-graduation options with her chapter’s advisor, Wolf took her passion for Greek life further by working at the Delta Phi Epsilon Headquarters in Philadelphia—an opportunity that enabled her to form multiple connections and even secure her job at Rutgers-Camden. Upon learning of the job opportunity at Rutgers, she was excited about the chance to work with students and help them grow through service, just as she had done.
Since coming to Rutgers-Camden, Wolf has found that the support from her amazing co-workers makes her feel invincible, just like the city of Camden. Moreover, she wholeheartedly believes that her team, which is built on collaboration, and students can help her overcome any obstacle. Then, when it’s time to encourage students to soar, like true Scarlet Raptors, above their expectations, Wolf is always there, striving to help however her students need, be it participating in a fundraiser or just listening. Additionally, Wolf facilitates valuable programming for leaders in the Greek life community, thereby providing continuous education for all active members. For Wolf, every day is a new opportunity to build close relationships with her students while steering them on the path to success.
As Wolf watches every chapter within the Greek life community grow, she is happiest when her students are driven to incite social change on campus through the student body. Furthermore, she enjoys witnessing each chapter, from both social and cultural Greek organizations, express themselves through their unique events and spirit. Nonetheless, her greatest joy lies at the core of her work—interacting with her students. Daily, she learns new things, like that comparison is the thief of joy and that different experiences deliver different feelings.
Outside of school, Wolf is passionate about animal advocacy. She feels that her small steps, such as becoming a vegetarian, help make the world a better place.
