SYRACUSE, N.Y. – For the second time in the last three years, a New York Epsilon Phi has been elected Student Association President. Junior Boris Gresely garnered roughly 40 percent of the vote after the week-long election from Nov. 11 – 14.
“The support and guidance that I received from my fellow brothers is a testament to the growth and strength of this Fraternity,” said Gresely. “Phi Delt constantly motivated me to keep pushing and fighting for what I believed in. My victory is not only one for me, but also one for the brotherhood.”
Since the Fraternity re-founded in the Fall of 2011, Gresely is the third New York Epsilon Phi to serve a position in the Student Association cabinet. Brother Dylan Lustig was elected as the President of the 56th Session in 2012 while Brother Duane Ford currently serves as Vice President of the 57th session
Gresely, along with running mate and Sigma Delta Tau sister Daniela Lopez, ran on a three-part platform of “reform, reconnect and redirect.” The political science and policy studies major, along with two other candidates, earned 4,411 total votes, equivalent to 31 percent of the student body. The unprecedented total number of votes breaks last year’s record turnout.
Gresely will be the first Student Association President to serve three consecutive semesters due to the recent changes in the organization.
