Sean Vo Family Programming
My name is Sean Vo and I am the Family Programming Director for the 2017 VIA-1! I am a 2016 graduate of The Ohio State University and majored psychology/pre-physical therapy. Some leadership positions I’ve held in the past include being a VIA-1 Family Leader and Family Programming Committee Member, Recruitment Chair for my school’s VSA, VIA-1 workshop presenter, former President of Pi Delta Psi Fraternity, Inc.
What VIA-1 means to me: VIA-1 gives me an opportunity to reflect and give back to individuals who are seeking to find or increase their cultural, social, and leadership potentials. Whether it’s their first or fourth conference, I aspire to make sure every attendee has an amazing weekend. VIA 1 has influenced my ethics and life ever since I attended my first conference in 2014. The conference has allowed me to develop not only as a leader but as an individual as well.
Fun facts about me:
I enjoy working out, playing lacrosse, I collect funko pop figures, and I hope to compete in a men’s physique competition soon
I hope to start physical therapy graduate school in 2017
I love comic book movies and my outfit is straight out of a Vineyard Vines catalog

Name/Year/ Position. Is this your first-time being a VIA-1 director and/or attending the conference?
Sean Vo, Graduate, Family Programming Director. First time as director, 3rd time as staff, 4th VIA-1 attendance.
Why did you choose to take part in the planning process? Why this committee versus the other committees?
I chose to take part as director because I saw so many things that could be improved and innovated for family programming. I wanted to bring in a whole new perspective and set new standards so that future family programming directors will have to work really hard to surpass the standards I’ve set, thus improving the conference each year.
I’m a people person and “socialholic”. Period. I felt that FPC was the best committee for my leadership skills and ideas. I wanted to make sure each attendee, new or returning, has a memorable conference experience. Plus having the power to choose family leaders is pretty darn cool.
Who inspires you the most?
Ryan Reynolds. God. No wait he is God. Uh oh I’ve lost my train of thought and also my pants.
Most memorable experience or favorite memory of VIA-1 so far?
Probably my first ever VIA-1 where I decided to run for External Vice President against the devilishly handsome Jason Victor (Wisconsin alum). Funny cause people only knew me cause I was a family leader and out of nowhere this random kid decides to run for a big boy job. I know it’s been like 3 years but I’m still waiting for the election results. Maybe they lost my phone number.
Director Question: Which committee director would you marry, impeach, and collaborate with and why?
Hmm I’d marry Dan Hodac. I mean, imagine our kids.
I’d impeach Paula cause I heard she farts a lot.
I’d collaborate with Liz who is also my little, winning combo right there.
