Christopher Triplett (born 21 January 1987) is an alumnus of Gamma Sigma Chapter (ΓΣ 340) at Missouri State University. He currently is attending graduate school at Northwest Missouri State University, studying higher education leadership.
Early Fraternity Life and Career
Christopher entered into his collegiate life at Missouri State University in the fall of 2005. His roommate introduced him to a group of amazing friends who just happened to be involved in Phi Sigma Pi. He decided to attend a capture the flag rush event in the spring of 2006 and immediately felt at home with a group of people that he connected with on both an intellectual and fellowship level. As a collegiate Brother, Christopher was super involved in campus life from the Disney College Program Alumni Association to Student Government to being a Student Orientation and Registration leader and even being selected for the fall 2008 Missouri State Homecoming Court. In every venture that Christopher pursued, he had Phi Sigma Pi attached to his name, which made him a walking billboard for the organization. He carried this billboard image until he graduated in May 2009 with a degree in Mass Media Operations with minors in Marketing and Advertising/Promotions.
Collegiate Years at Gamma Sigma Chapter
As an undergraduate Brother in the Gamma Sigma Chapter, Chris was highly involved with getting Phi Sigma Pi's name broadcasted throughout the University campus. Chris was very involved with Student Government, Freshmen Orientation (SOAR), Big Brothers Big Sisters, and various other organizations. He held various positions within the Chpater, but none were more important than the life of the party! He was always laughing, making jokes, and exhibiting fellowship to the fullest extent. He helped the Chapter become more reliant on fellowship and involvement in the University rather than all about academics and intra-organizational relationships.
