The purpose of the awards program is to celebrate the accomplishments in academics, service and philanthropy, honor faculty advisors and senior members for their service, and award organizations for their performance throughout the year (based an evaluation and ranking system).

Greek Organizations raised over $10,400 and another $3,440 in gifts, totaling over $13,840. The community service and volunteer hours totaled nearly nine thousand hours. Eighty-Two Greek members earned Dean’s List recognition and an additional twenty members earned a perfect 4.0 semester grade point average. That is over half of the Greeks with at least a 3.5 GPA!
