Madison Cobb, the president of Phi Mu’s Zeta Lambda chapter at Northwest Missouri State University was selected this fall to serve on the sorority’s Collegiate Advisory Committee (CAC).

The CAC is a volunteer committee supporting Phi Mu’s Leadership and Curriculum Development Department and plays an important role in gauging members’ experiences. As an advisor, Cobb will review all Phi Mu sorority activities and implement policies to improve chapters.

“It allowed me meet girls from all over the country, gain perspectives on different people’s lives and how we can bring that to a small town like Maryville,” said Cobb, a senior business management major from Bennington, Nebraska. “This opportunity has helped me build connections with headquarters staff, so I can potentially have a career there.”

Cobb said she joined Phi Mu as a freshman to make long-lasting friendships and get involved with campus life at Northwest. Three years later, she has gained networking and leadership skills.

“I didn’t know anyone at Northwest, so I wanted to make new friendships and feel more involved,” Cobb said. “Also, I am very passionate about leadership, giving back to the community, and I felt like being in a sorority really gave me those opportunities.”

Cobb says Phi Mu has provided personal development and post-graduate opportunities.

“Phi mu allowed me to meet different people from different areas on campus,” she said. “It allowed me to get involved in Student Senate, and I wouldn’t have gotten involved if someone at Phi Mu hadn’t told me about the opportunity.”

After completing her bachelor’s degree, she aspires to work at Phi Mu’s headquarters in Atlanta.    

“I want to work there because I am passionate about women empowerment, and I believe Phi Mu, specifically, provides women with resources to collaborate with each other,” she said. “Being in an organization like (Phi Mu) allows you to find confidence in yourself and find your own passion.”
