As an undergraduate, Jim was elected President of the Inter-Fraternal Council, Vice President of the Student Government Association, and Chief Justice of the Student Judiciary Body. At the same time, he was selected to sit on the University's Board of Trustee and Board of Directors of the Alumni Associations. He was also an All-Conference Indoor track runner at Widener.
