Greek Points were created to encourage the Greek community to foster relationships with members in different organizations other than their own. Greek Points provide the opportunity to come together and serve the campus and the University in service and philanthropic efforts. The goal of the Greek Programming Board and the Greek point system is that members will leave the university with friends in not only their own Greek Chapter but with friends in all four councils.

Points

Greek Programming Board and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life have the final say on the delegation of Greek Points for events. Points value will be announced before the event. The Board withholds the right to deny based on location and availability of transportation for students.

All Greek Point events are worth 1 Greek Point, except for OFSL- sponsored events that are worth 3 Greek Points.

Chapter-sponsored events:

  • If a chapter is hosting a Greek Point event by themselves, members of that chapter are not eligible to receive points for that event.
  • If a chapter is co-hosting an event within your council, members are eligible to receive 1 Greek Point.
  • If a chapter is co-hosting an event with a chapter from another council, members are eligible to receive 2 Greek Points. Chapters will be limited to two events per council each semester.

Events sponsored by non-UA organizations will not be approved.

Events Approval

To use Greek Points for an event, it must align with the five engagement waves.

  • Goal 1: Global and Intercultural Learning – Develop the capacity to be informed, open-minded, and responsible while addressing significant issues in the world, learning to articulate self-identity and engage with diverse communities in a global context.
  • Goal 2: Leadership Development – Strengthen leadership skills and broaden core beliefs and values to influence personal, professional, and civic environments.
  • Goal 3: Holistic Development – Cultivate the knowledge, skills, and behaviors needed to build a life of vitality, engagement, purpose, and resilience while creating healthy environments through college and beyond.
  • Goal 4: Experiential Learning – Promote learning to manage personal and professional experiences, behaviors, and skills to confidently achieve life-long success.
  • Goal 5:  Community Service and Engagement – Expand and develop an understanding of active participation in the community, promoting the value of human welfare and cultivating civic engagement and social responsibility.

Venmo Fundraisers

Organizations may submit up to two Venmo fundraisers for Greek Points per semester. Each month only 5 Venmo fundraisers will be approved for Greek Points.

Checklist for Events Approval

  • Event approval form is filled out and submitted at least two weeks (14 days) before it occurs.
  • The event is open to participation for members from all councils.
  • The event is not limited to a certain number of participants.
  • The event will not in any way promote, provide, or include the consumption and/or sale of alcohol in any way. This includes events held at bars.
  • The event is easily accessible to students (e.g. on campus or within reasonable walking distance from campus, etc.)
  • The hosting organization utilizes the electronic Event Check-In form, provided by the OFSL. Events where attendance or participation are unable to be tracked by the host organization will not be approved. It is the responsibility of the hosting organization(s) to ensure that attendees/participants are able to check in and receive the Greek Point(s). 
  • Student organization-hosted events on campus must be registered and approved via the SOURCE.
  • Tag @uaofsl when sharing your graphic on Instagram to ensure your event is featured on our @uaofsl Instagram page.
