Matthew “Matt” Tursi joined the Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity in Spring of 2016 at Hofstra University’s Sigma Alpha Sigma Chapter. At Hofstra, Matt was a Music Business Major and earned a four-year scholarship for playing trombone.
Matt served as the Secretary of the Music and Entertainment Industry Student Association (MEISA) for two years (Fall 2017-Spring 2019). Through his major, he interned and worked in marketing for The Nassau Coliseum, KORG USA, Sony Music, and Legacy Recordings. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree for Music Business in May of 2019.
Matt spends most of his day pursuing a career as an actor. He continues to consider himself a DJ, Photographer, and Legal Videographer. Since May of 2021, Matt has served in the U.S. Army with the 78th Army Band stationed out of Fort Totten, Queens and Fort Dix, NJ. There he plays trombone, assists in sound, and manages their New York City social media pages. He is currently enrolled in court reporting (stenography) school, following after his mother and his late father.
For his TEP Chapter, Matt served as Chancellor as well as various other positions. During his tenure as Chancellor, his Chapter was nominated for Greek Organization of the year. And in the Spring of 2019, Matt was awarded the Greek Leader of the Year award.
Ever since going to the Grand Chapter in 2018, Matt has been wanting to play a bigger role and help Tau Epsilon Phi in any way he can. He started his Alumni Association in 2019 and has been the chancellor of that since its inception. In 2020, he was elected to serve as the Vice Consul for Undergraduate Affairs at the virtual Grand Chapter and in 2022, elected to serve as a Director at the Grand Chapter in Baltimore, Maryland.
With enormous shoes to fill from the brothers that have served before him, he is now serving as the Chapter Services Consultant. He’s looking forward to working with the fraternity on a daily basis and is excited about where he can assist in the upcoming years.
