Meet Our Directors
These wonderful brothers will be working with the members and their respective VPs to help this semester go smoothly. (Alphabetized by title)
Joni Roggenbuck, Apparel
Hi! I'm Joni Roggenbuck, your Director of Apparel this semester. I am a sophomore Biology major working towards PA school. This is my fourth semester in APO and I love it, as you can see by my pride and adoration of my APO pumpkin from the pumpkin patch fellowship this fall. It was thirty pounds, but I carried it all the way to the car, only dropping it once. I promise I plan on doing a better job holding this position. Get ready to be swathed in APO gear.
My name is Cali and I joined APO because Martha didn’t want to go to the first meeting alone so I went with :) I ran for this VP position because I was a director last semester and really enjoyed it but wanted to try a new position. I am a sophomore working towards Med School but not sure on my majors yet.. I’m trying to get it together I swear. Fun fact: I love both ice cream and popcorn with all my heart… except chocolate ice cream — gross!
Hello everyone! I'm Rachel Robole, your fellowship director this semester. Although this is only my second semester in APO, I feel like I've already met so many great people and am look forward to getting to know even more of my brothers. I am currently a junior studying Political Science and Gender & Women's Studies, with a concentrated coursework in international politics. After I complete my undergraduate degree in 2018, it is my goal to get involved with the Peace Corps and focus on empowering women in third world countries. Outside of thoroughly enjoying my studies, I love listening to music, attending concerts and theatre productions, exploring nature, and spending time with my wonderful friends. I am so excited to plan formal this semester in addition to coming up with new ideas for fellowships. If you have any suggestions for fellowships or formal, do not hesitate to shoot me an email!
Hey bros!! My name is Josh Brandt and I am your Fundraising Director and I put the fun in fundraising! I am pursuing a double major in Spanish and Environmental Studies with a certificate in Business. I am from Los Angeles, California and you can often catch me penny boarding around campus. In my free time I like to play classical and jazz piano, snowboard/surf, do crosswords, play chess, and learn languages on my phone. This spring is my third semester in APO and first time serving in a leadership position. I joined APO because it offered me an opportunity to give back to the community through volunteering with my friends. Feel free to come up to me with ideas for fundraisers as I am always open to new ideas! Contact Josh at email@example.com
Amanda Schlimgen, Rush and Retention
Hi, my name is Amanda Schlimgen & I am one of your Rush and Retention Directors for this semester. I am a junior studying Human Development and Family Studies & Nursing, and this is my 5th semester in APO. I really hope to make an impact on the retention part of APO this semester and get brothers to feel like they belong. In my free time I pretty much enjoy binge watching shows on netflix, so i'm always looking for new recommendations (hmu if you have any).
Hi everyone! My name is Benita Mathew and I am one of your Rush and Retention directors this semester! I am really glad that I decided to join APO because it offers so many opportunities to serve the community, and I have met a ton of great people through the organization. I am currently a sophomore from Chicago studying political science and journalism. Outside of school, I would consider myself a professional binge watcher and love trying new foods. I’m super excited to encourage more students to become a part of such an awesome organization during rush! Feel free to talk to me about any rush or retention ideas you have!
Hi all! My name is Bri and I will be one of your pledge relations directors this semester! I am currently a junior studying Kinesiology: Exercise and Movement Science to pursue a career in the medical field someday. I grew up in a small town near Hartford, Wisconsin and am dedicated to all Wisconsin sports with a special love for the Badgers! I like to stay active and busy by enjoying the outdoors especially in the summer. This is only my second semester with APO and I have already learned and gained so much from this amazing organization. My main reason for joining was to have a variety of options for volunteering but through this experience I have grown closer with many of my brothers. I am looking forward to getting to know all of the new pledges this semester and please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or ideas on pledge relations!!
Hello brothers, my name is AJ and I am one of your directors of pledge relations this semester. I am a junior majoring in biology, and I am from Apple Valley, MN (about 25 minutes south of Minneapolis). This is my fourth semester in APO, and I originally joined to try and find more volunteer opportunities and I thought this would be a great resource for that, but have been kept involved by how awesome everyone associated with APO is and some of the great people I've met through volunteering and fellowships. I am very excited to try and help us all get to know the new pledges better and to get more involved with APO!
Hi! I'm the secretary this semester. I'm a junior majoring in Biology with a certificate in French, and I hope to go to medical school after graduation. I love puppies, food, and trying new things! I joined APO because my father was a brother, but I have remained in this organization because of the strong sense of community and amazing leadership, fellowship, and service opportunities. As secretary, I hope to get closer with each of the members and become a more integral part of the fraternity. I'm looking forward to a great semester!
Hi Guys! I'm Niki Patel, your special events director for this semester. I'm a sophomore majoring in Genetics and Psychology, hoping to go to medical school after I graduate. I'm from Buffalo Grove, Illinois and an expert netflix and dark chocolate binger. I joined APO my sophomore year because I love volunteering and wanted to meet people who do too! Since joining APO, I've gained a sense of community and have had the opportunity to volunteer my time with so many great organizations. Email me if you have any questions regarding how APO will be involved with Make-A-Wish!
