On Monday, the 21st of June, I had the pleasure of interviewing SigEp undergrad and current chapter president, Anthony Mesi. This newsletter will be a continuation of our brother spotlights, bringing us closer together as SigEps regardless of age, helping us give thanks and garnering the interest of those SigEps that have come before us and those who will come after.
Anthony Mesi, class of 2022, was born and raised right outside of downtown Chicago in Park Ridge, Illinois. Mesi now lives in downtown Chicago, splitting his time between work and play in the Windy City. Mesi came to Miami because he wanted to get away from home and challenge himself in a new city before beginning his career in the finance field as he is majoring in finance and minoring in accounting. Mesi is currently interning at UBS in their private wealth management division and hopes to continue such work after college. He feels that his strong work ethic and persistence are the core reasons why he decided to run for chapter president. Believing that he could expand upon the work that previous chapter president, the late great Brett O’Connell, made and continue to improve the chapter across a variety of facets. Mesi also aimed to improve the brotherhood experience through new events and activities, maximizing what our current brothers could get out of their time at SigEp. As president, Mesi is a firm believer that the most rewarding and consequential part of anyone’s time in SigEp is the people you get introduced to. He continues to cite SigEp as the reason for meeting some of his best friends that he is certain he will have for life. His friendships are also one of the reasons main reasons he decided to rush Florida Gamma in the Fall of his sophomore year. Interestingly enough, Mesi is the first Florida Gamma chapter president to have rushed as a 365 bid, a testament to his work ethic and his standing among his peers. It is certainly not an understatement to say that Mesi’s time in SigEp has been nothing short of impressive. He’s served as a brotherhood mentor and career mentor to many new members and, of course, was elected as president in the Fall of 2021 due to the respect he commands throughout the chapter. Along with his accomplishments in SigEp, Anthony maintains a presence in intramural sports, all the while maintaining a 4.0 GPA across the last three semesters. When asked about the new alumni series, Mesi exclaimed that he was looking forward to the interconnected network it brings us as SigEps, both socially and career-wise. Citing it as a great opportunity for SigEps past, present, and eventually future to help each other out and foster everlasting bonds. Mesi will return for his final year at the U this Fall, which hopes to be a memorable send-off back to normal times.
