Georgia Southern Homecoming King
Tyler Robledo (Delta Theta–Georgia Southern ’16) was crowned Homecoming King during Homecoming ceremonies at Georgia Southern on Saturday, October 6. Robledo, a senior construction engineering major, is Delta Theta’s Number III, as well as the chapter’s chaplain for the second year.
Robledo explained how he got to be king. “The fraternity puts up a candidate, and it goes by points – you get up to 40 points for your GPA and I had a 3.8, so I got 38 points. You go through an interview and you get points for how well you interview, and they look at things like if you have a job and if you work on campus. Then there’s voting from the student body, which maxes out at 500 votes, and you get one point for every vote, for a max of 50 points. So there was my GPA and the other things and I maxed out on votes.”
Robledo is also known on campus for his charity work, which has taken him and some of his brothers to other countries. He said he couldn’t believe he was elected Homecoming King. “Man, I was absolutely shocked. Absolutely shocked. I didn’t expect it at all.”
