Lisa McCoy, the new Assistant Director of Student Involvement and Greek Life, is from Bonita Springs, Florida. She attended Rollins College for undergraduate school and the University of South Carolina for graduate school. As a member of Delta Zeta, she is also Greek affiliated.

McCoy’s interest in Greek life began while she was an undergraduate. “I joined Delta Zeta when I was a sophomore at Rollins College, and I got really involved right from the beginning. I was a new member, and right after I was initiated I went on the Executive Board and then I became president.”

Her plans were to go into child psychology after college, but McCoy couldn’t leave her time working with students behind. “I was an elementary education major, but I loved working with the Delta Zeta women, and I loved going to college campuses and meeting with the fraternity and sorority advisors, and I loved leadership development, so I figured ‘how could I keep doing this?’ because I can’t keep working with Delta Zeta forever,” McCoy said.

McCoy ended up getting her masters in Student Affairs. While working towards her degree, she did her assistantship in the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs at USC. “I learned a lot, but I missed Greek life,” McCoy said.

McCoy found Presbyterian College through her connections in student affairs. They reached out to her while she was at USC because they knew she would be interested. She saw PC was right down the road, was a small school, which she could relate to, and she could still be involved with Greek life.

“I love the community that PC has. Since I work with fraternities and sororities, I also work with student government, so that’s another big part of my job, and I think it’s really cool to see the overlap with that,” McCoy said. “I work with somebody who is on an executive board for a fraternity and is also really involved with student government, who also comes into my office and works with Beatrix because they are doing something with student volunteer services or with Brittney and I’ll go over to athletics and I see my students there too. I think it’s really neat that we’re all interconnected, doing great things.”
