Purdue Fraternity, Sorority and Cooperative Life Members Receive National Honors

Three individuals associated with Purdue’s Fraternity, Sorority and Cooperative Life community have received national recognition from the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC).

Brandon Cutler, associate dean of students for Fraternity, Sorority and Cooperative Life (FSCL), has been honored with the Advisor Award of Distinction. The award recognizes individuals who have shown exceptional commitment to guiding and mentoring a chapter, council or community. Cutler has provided leadership for all areas with the Purdue FSCL community since April 2013. He also serves on the board of directors for the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors. In its recognition of Cutler, NIC notes his success in prioritizing data tracking and analysis, establishing a system of peer governance, instituting industry-leading health and safety policies, improving financial operations and the successful growth of Purdue’s FSCL community.

Bill Miller, chapter advisor for Phi Gamma Delta, has also been awarded an Advisor Award of Distinction. Miller has served as a chapter advisor for 30 years. His care for the fraternal experience is exemplified in ways that range from driving fraternity members to doctor’s appointments to supporting the chapter with the purchase of a van. Miller has been an advocate for Phi Gamma Delta at the national level, helping found chapters around the country, attending 20 consecutive national conventions and visiting more chapters than any other volunteer.

Nathan Longo has been awarded one of nine Undergraduate Award of Distinction honors. The award recognizes fraternity men who embody the values of their fraternity in their development as both a leader and better man. Longo served as president of the Interfraternity Council and previously served as president of the Purdue chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. He graduated in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering.

The NIC is an association of college men’s fraternities. The organization advocates for the needs of its member fraternities through enrichment of the fraternity experience, advance and growth of the fraternity community, and the enhancement of the educational mission of member institutions. The NIC annually recognizes excellence in the fraternal experience in conferring awards to individuals and groups who exemplify leadership, service and fraternal values.

Purdue boasts one of the nation’s largest FSCL communities, with more than 6,000 students holding membership in more than 90 chapters. Approximately 20 percent of Purdue’s undergraduates are members of a fraternity, sorority or cooperative. The FSCL community focuses on scholarship, service, philanthropy, leadership development and brotherhood/sisterhood/siblinghood.
