Executive Board

Tanner Sandoval

Hey there, my name is Tanner and I’m a junior studying economics with a minor in business. Originally from Colorado, I managed to escape the bitter cold for Southern California never having been skiing or snowboarding. In my free time, I pretend to be a talented photographer and re-live high school glory days through intramurals. Previously serving as VP of communications and having been involved in my fraternity’s leadership, I’ve dedicated much of my college career to enriching the Greek community at USC. Still to this day, I am humbled at the talent, intelligence and relentless drive for success that I am surrounded by at this University.After graduation, I hope to get involved in management consulting and eventually earn an MBA. I look forward to continuing to represent and improve the Greek community over the next year! Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

Ehren Elder
EVP of Administrative Affairs

Hello! My name is Ehren Elder and I’m a sophomore double majoring in Philosophy Politics & Law and Economics, hailing from Los Altos, California, just down the street from that other private school in the Pac-12. I joined Greek life at USC because of its incredible capacity to bring together great student leaders, athletes, and scholars. And I could not have had a better experience. Last year I served IFC as the Director of Greek Education and in my own chapter as the Housing Manager. On campus, I work in the Dornsife Admission Office and have previously been involved with Spirit Leading, Building Government, and JEP, in addition to having worked cold calling alumni and as an Orientation Advisor. After graduating I plan on attending law school to pursue a career as a lawyer.Both in and out of Greek life, I have been able to accrue the skills and knowledge necessary to serve this year as Executive Vice President of Administrative Affairs. In this role I coordinate with PHC, USG, and administration as well as manage the executive board and directors to move toward our collective vision for the row. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns about USC or the Greek community. Fight on!

James Freymuth
VP of Recruitment

Howdy! My name is James Freymuth and I am the 2014 IFC VP of Recruitment. I am a member of the Gamma Tau Chapter of Beta Theta Pi where I have served as a member of our Kai Committee as well as Philanthropy Chair and am currently serving as Scholarship Chair. I am a junior Philosophy, Politics, & Law major and am also pursuing a progressive Master’s degree in Public Administration through the Price school. Outside of the Greek community, I work as a Peer Leadership Consultant in the Office of Campus Activities and am proud member of Los Angeles Community Impact and Conquest Capital Ventures. I enjoy reading, playing basketball and Super Smash Brothers, and spending time with my family in beautiful Westlake Village, California.

I came into USC with little to no knowledge or even interest about Greek Life but two years later I can say that joining a fraternity was one of the best decisions of my life and one that has had a profoundly beneficial impact on my time here. In an already vibrant USC community, Greeks stand out for their academic, extracurricular, and philanthropic achievements and it is an honor to serve them. As VP of Recruitment, I look forward to meeting with potential rushees and hopefully, helping others to share in an experience that has profoundly affected me.

Hello! My name is Cole Manaster, and I’m a sophomore majoring in Computer Science and Business Administration. Born and raised in a small Bay Area town called Los Altos, I love the opportunities that Los Angeles, USC and Greek life have given me so far. Outside of IFC, I work for a mobile app company based out of San Jose, and in my free time, I enjoy rock climbing, playing guitar, and exploring LA. This summer, I’m looking forward to interning in Dublin, Ireland. When I joined a fraternity, I found exactly what I was hoping for: a brotherhood to support me through the good and bad times, and a community of leaders that has helped me mature both personally and professionally. My goal is to give our new members the best experience possible. Please contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. Fight on!

Austin Horton
VP of Communications

Hello, my name is Austin Horton and I’m a sophomore majoring in Industrial and Systems Engineering. I’m from Long Beach, which is a short drive down the freeway from USC. Serving as my chapter’s secretary right after initiating allowed me to help grow my fraternity in anyway I could. I will continue to bring change to the entire Greek community as VP of Communications. Outside of IFC I’m involved in the Institute for Industrial Engineers as well as my chapter’s commitment to philanthropy and service. When I’m not doing any of those things I enjoy swimming, going to the beach; something every southern California kid does.

Jonathan Tsao
VP of Events

How’s it going? I am Jonathan Tsao, and I’m a sophomore majoring in Communication. As an international student from the vibrant city of Shanghai, I have a deep appreciation for all cultures. As a result, I also wish to make Greek life a more diverse community. During my free time I enjoy listening to music and watching low budget comedies.I joined Greek life with the intention to fully immerse myself in this ongoing American undergraduate tradition. The rewards I got from it were far greater than what I imagined. I found not just friends, but family that will motivate and urge you to become the best person that you can be.

During my undergraduate career thus far, I have written for the Daily Trojan Lifestyle section, played rugby with the historical USC Men’s Rugby team, and served as a rush director for my fraternity. As this year’s Vice President of Events, I wish to use the events the Greek community hosts as a platform for greater understanding and appreciation of Greek life among entire student population. Please let me know if there are any lingering questions regarding Greek life or just USC in general, and I will be happy to assist you. Take care and fight on!
