Student Spotlight – November 2014 – Ian Mellul

Ian Mellul, Theta Zeta (George Washington)

Mellul, who went through the associate member process while interning in the U.S. Senate, took an interest in leadership in the fraternity as soon as he was initiated. In his first semester as a brother, he assumed the role of philanthropy chair, raising over $6,000 for The Ability Experience in a single semester. After his tenure in that position, Mellul took over the positions of risk manager and formal chair, which he continues to hold.

Mellul’s interest in public service extends beyond his time working on Capitol Hill. During the spring of 2014, while serving as philanthropy chair, Mellul became a part time student in order to complete the prestigious White House internship in the Office of Presidential Personnel. Being offered a position as a White House intern as a sophomore is an incredible achievement for any student. Yet, despite his hectic schedule working full time for the President, Mellul’s devotion to The Ability Experience never faltered.

He is also extremely involved in other GW organizations, fostering his chapter’s campus relations with George Washington’s non-Greek organizations. He has held positions on the Student Association (GW’s student government) and currently serves as the co-president of the Colonial Army – GW’s official student fan organization. As president, Mellul coordinates with the GW Athletic Department to set-up official student tailgates, alumni events, and student fan road trips to follow various varsity sports teams. He is known all over campus as someone who is able to get things done and whose love for the George Washington community is unmatched.

Mellul has been an irreplaceable brother of the Theta Zeta Chapter and continues to faithfully serve the brotherhood. He is tirelessly working to lead both the chapter and the GW community onto bigger and better things.

His achievements have not been limited to his time in D.C., however. Mellul has been honored in his home state of Florida. He is the recipient of the Delray Beach Dare to Be Great Foundation Scholarship and was featured as the Atlantic Avenue Magazine’s Person of the Month in July of 2014.
