Director of Greek Life Mary Beth Seiler to retire after 37 years

After 37 years of service to the University of Michigan Greek Community, Director of Greek Life Mary Beth Seiler will retire on June 30th.  Mary Beth was hired in 1979 by Persephone’s Consilium, a group of Panhellenic alumnae who supported Greek Life’s viability throughout the late 60s and early 70s when Greek Life struggled to survive nationally.  She describes the start of her position as “a very exciting time, full of so much potential.” As the community continued to grow, so did the need for Mary Beth’s expertise.
