Back in the Fall of 2007, I joined the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity here at RPI. I’ve enjoyed every bit of it, especially because its opened me up to a lot of opportunities that I may not have experienced normally. One of those was the creation of a Portal to make the tasks that any Greek organization has to do much easier.
In the Fall of 2008, for my Creativity and IT class, I created what I called the EHZ Portal. Since then, I’ve been working with my brothers in adding more features and functionality into it, to the point where I believe we get a lot of value out of it.
I’ve now expanded all of that, and brought it to the national level. I’ve just launched ZAXPortal.com, which I hope will become a staple tool used by chapters all across North America. Not only does it include the functionality of managing inter-chapter operations, but it also creates a private space for brothers across the nation to discuss, collaborate and share their ideas/experiences with each other. Something like this does not currently exist, therefore I’m very excited for what this could potentially turn into.
