Lasting Commitment to Lambda Chi Alpha
Tim Goss ’09 X1922 Reflects on Chi Zeta
Tim Goss ’09 X1922 joined Lambda Chi Alpha as a freshman after being recruited by a fantastic group of underclassmen and seniors his freshman year. “Some of my best college experiences occurred at the chapter house and our various brotherhood events,” Tim said. As an alumnus, he has helped Chi Zeta with updating the website. His biggest advice to undergraduate brothers: “Take advantage of the time you have with Chi Zeta and do what you can to make the most of it. Time flies.”
As an undergraduate, Tim served as an executive board member as well as High Rho. His favorite chapter memories include canoe trip outings, pickup basketball games at the house court, and enjoying the first glimpses of spring weather on the front lawn after the long and bitter winters in Champaign. Pete Kale ’75 X1020, had a great influence on Tim’s Chi Zeta experience, both undergraduate and as an alumnus. “Pete’s leadership and commitment has been a common theme through a long period of transition. From leading emergency maintenance efforts for our home, to kicking off and sustaining the fundraising efforts to make the new chapter house a reality, Pete has been there for all of us.”
Connections Through Brotherhood
Tim graduated with a B.A. in history and minor in business and now leads a business development team at Randstad, the world’s largest staffing, recruitment, and HR consulting company. “I leverage my recruiting experience and the strong content development and research skills I developed at U of I to help make our sales people successful from behind the scenes,” Tim explained. “Liam Weber ’08 X1898 and Tanner Jones ’08 X1848, two brothers who recruited me at Chi Zeta, also recruited me for Randstad after I graduated!”
In his spare time, Tim is an avid cook, and he considers himself fortunate to work from home—mere steps away from the kitchen! “When I’m not working, you’ll probably find me baking bread, cooking for myself and my roommates, or playing basketball.” If you’d like to connect with Tim about Chi Zeta, he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
