Held in the spring semester, this annual event provides the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life an opportunity to recognize and honor the achievements and efforts of our fraternities and sororities. The primary purpose of the Greek Excellence Program is to provide an objective appraisal of a chapter’s performance and to challenge each chapter to improve both programming and overall operations.
This year, the Greek Excellence Awards reception is scheduled for Sunday, February 19, 2017 and will be held in the Ferguson Student Center Great Hall and Ballroom. In order to be eligible to receive the various chapter awards, chapters must submit an electronic version of the packet by 5 p.m. CST on Tuesday, January 20, 2017. Let the packet serve as an instrument that highlights in detail, what your chapter has accomplished this year (January 2016 through December 2016).
For questions or concerns about the Greek Excellence Award Packet and/or the Awards Reception, please contact Nicole Jackson at 205-348-2693 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
