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