– On October 20, nine male Florida Tech students competed in the university’s Gleason Performing Arts Center to determine the 2005 Big Man on Campus. The
men and three Panhellenic sororities raised a total of $3,111 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation to fight breast cancer. Krystal van Sickler was primary
event coordinator, with support from many sorority women.
Big Man on Campus contestants were: Charles Allen, Pre-med Club; Derek Cameron, Student Ambassadors; Eric Kirby, Pi Lambda Phi; Todd Lundell, Theta Xi;
Jeff Megivern; Pi Kappa Alpha; Joseph Molina, Society of Advancement of Management; Eamonn Powers, Varsity Baseball Team; Caleb Slavens , Cross Country
Team; and Joey Stine, College Players. The event was hosted by students Kyle Numan and Michelle Marchand.
Contestants competed in interview, beach wear, talent, and formal wear categories. Contestants were also expected to fundraise prior to the event.
Derek Cameron won “Mr. Congeniality” for his passion and for taking some pies in the face to raise money. Other fund-raisers included bracelet and T-shirt
sales. In addition, 100 keys to a box containing a Tiffany and Co. Bracelet were sold for $5 apiece.
Jeff Megivern was named Big Man on Campus. Derek Cameron was first runner-up; and Joey Stine was second runner-up.
