Phi Kappa Tau

Phi Tau House

National Founding: March 17, 1906
Local Founding: 1950

Phi Kappa Tau was nationally founded in 1906 at Miami University in Ohio. We remember our roots to this day and continue to strive to be different from other Greek organizations by staying true to our initial beliefs: the innate worth of members, democracy, and Christian ideals. 

In 1949, a group of University of Georgia students comprised of World War II veterans returning to college formed the Beta Xi Colony of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity where it would thrive for 65 years. On October 22, 2011 Beta Xi re-charted and in just over three years, our brotherhood has grown to 100 men by searching for leaders who desire a loyal brotherhood, an effective medium to improve their community, and a means to progress into adulthood. In 2013 we unveiled the newest fraternity house at 558 West Broad Street, at the gateway to downtown Athens. 

Our associate membership program, The Mark of Distinction, is designed to allow members to learn our ideals and history and understand the expectations and obligations of a true brother. With 65 years of rich chapter history and an alumni network in fields such as public service, banking, and private enterprise, we provide ample opportunities for our members to develop professionally. Our national philanthropy, SeriousFun Children's Network, provides a safe summer camp experience for children with serious illnesses, and our chapter has raised over $18,000 in the past year for this cause. Phi Kappa Tau is working to redefine the fraternity man by offering a lifelong commitment to brotherhood, learning, ethical leadership and exemplary character.

From the Panhellenic President

Welcome to Panhellenic at the University of Georgia! Our community is comprised of 19 NPC organizations, excelling in the areas of leadership, philanthropic involvement, campus involvement, and academics. We are so proud of the many student leaders who are committed to serving the Panhellenic system by demonstrating the values and excellence we work to uphold on our campus. Sorority involvement continues to provide young women with the opportunity to be a part of the tradition of excellence UGA Greek Life strives to sustain. 

Alongside the Panhellenic Executive Board, I am fortunate to work with an incredible group of people. This year we are especially looking forward to some upcoming projects on our campus. We are excited to have welcomed our 19th NPC organization this past year and we look forward to having them partake in formal recruitment in Fall 2018. Additionally, we are implementing our newly updated formal recruitment schedule for August. Finally, increased collaboration and utilization of all campus resources is our final initiative. 

I encourage you to look through our website to learn more about our recruitment process, our executive officers, our 19 individual chapters, and sorority life at the University of Georgia. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions. We are all excited to tell you more about the organization we are all so passionate about!

What will Recruitment be like? 
Recruitment is intended to give each Potential New Member an opportunity to become familiar with each of the 19 sororities at UGA, meet as many Greek women as possible, and learn about each organization. The actual process of Recruitment involves four rounds of events. After each round of events, Potential New Members receive invitations to the next round of events and are permitted to choose a limited number of sororities they would like to visit again. Potential New Members will be divided into small groups with Gamma Chis (Recruitment Counselors) to guide them through the week.

Round One – During the first two days of Recruitment you will visit each sorority for 20 minutes. These events will introduce you to every chapter before you begin to make decisions. You will probably talk about yourself (your summer, your activities, where you are living, etc.) so don't be shy – the sorority members want to get to know you. Round One events are high-energy and may include music, singing, and clapping. These events are short, so relax and have fun! 

Round Two – Round Two is known as "Philanthropy Round." Events are 25 minutes in length and allow you to learn about the sorority's philanthropic contributions both locally and nationally. The sorority will show a video highlighting the events they put on to raise money for important causes. If invited, you may attend up to 14 events.

Round Three – All of our sororities are located in beautiful historic homes near campus. During this round, the sisters will take time to show you around their homes and get to know you better. This is the round where you will wear your recruitment t-shirt. These events are 30 minutes long and if invited you may attend up to 8. 

Preferential Round (Prefs) – You will be making the final decision about which sororities you prefer during this round. These events are usually more serious than previous events as the sorority members will explain what it means to be a sister and what their sorority has to offer. Events are 50 minutes in length and if invited, you may attend up to two preferential events. 

What do I wear? 
Casual skirts and dresses are appropriate for rounds one and two. Round three will be t-shirt day. All the participants will wear their recruitment t-shirt. Cool, lightweight fabrics are a necessity because of the hot weather. You will be walking a lot so comfortable footwear is essential. Heels are discouraged for Rounds 1-3. Nice dresses, skirts or pants that you would wear to a wedding or religious service are appropriate for Pref Round. Pref events are more formal, therefore many women choose to wear black dresses and heels although please note that this is not a requirement. The most important thing during all rounds is to make sure you feel comfortable.

UPPERCLASSMEN QUOTA FAQs
What is an upperclassmen quota?
The upperclassmen quota is a separate quota that is used to specifically place upperclassmen Potential New Members.  

Why do we use an upperclassmen quota for Fall Recruitment?
It gives upperclassmen and transfer students a greater opportunity to pledge during the Formal Recruitment process as they are not considered in the same pool as freshman.

How will you determine if I am an upperclassmen?
We will determine if you are an upperclassmen based on your high school graduation date. If you feel that you have special circumstances please, such as a gap year, contact the Panhellenic Council.

If I am an upperclassmen will the recruitment process be different?
No, the recruitment process will be no different for you!

Panhellenic FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions
Concerning Sorority Recruitment

If I participate in Recruitment, am I obligated to join a sorority?
No, many women choose to go through Recruitment to meet people and make new friends. Recruitment is an opportunity for you to visit the sororities, get a glimpse of Greek life, and assess whether or not you would like to be a part of the UGA Greek community.

What if I only want to be in a certain sorority?
Potential New Members often experience the greatest disappointment by beginning the Recruitment process only wanting to be in one or a few certain sororities. Sorority membership is more than wearing certain Greek letters. It is giving your time and energy to the sorority, agreeing to abide by all the rules and regulations, and living up to high expectations. Don’t make a decision based on stereotypes and others’ opinions. Keep an open mind and make a decision that is right for you.

Is there a GPA requirement to participate in formal recruitment?
Although the Panhellenic Council does not require a minimum GPA to participate in recruitment, each sorority may establish their own minimum GPA required for membership. If you have a question about a particular sorority's requirement, please directly contact the chapter.  

I have heard that sororities have various reputations. How do I handle this information?
The only opinion of a chapter that should matter is yours. Each chapter is different from campus to campus and from year to year. If you allow someone else’s perceptions to influence you, then you may not feel satisfied with your choices during Recruitment. Remember that each chapter is made up of many different women with different talents and qualities that compose the entire group. There are always rumors about any important event and Recruitment is no exception. If you hear derogatory remarks about any sorority or any women in the group, please disregard those comments as inappropriate and against the Panhellenic spirit. Any questions regarding rumors or inappropriate comments should be directed to your Gamma Chi or a Panhellenic Executive Officer. It is very important to keep an open mind about each sorority throughout the process and not to dismiss a certain house based on rumor or stereotype.

What do sororities look for in members?
It is difficult to pin-point exactly what sorority women are looking for. There are as many answers to that question as there are sorority women. A strong academic background is very important to every sorority. Each sorority has a minimum grade requirement and no matter how wonderful the Potential New Member may be, the sorority might release her if she cannot meet the grade requirement.

Often, women have friends currently in sororities or are legacies to certain sororities. Some women feel that these Potential New Members have an advantage in that sorority. However, just as you are not obligated to join that sorority, that sorority is not obligated to extend you an invitation for membership. Furthermore, you should not worry if you are not a legacy or do not know anyone in a sorority. The entire point of going through Recruitment is to meet new people, and every sorority wants to give all Potential New Members an equal chance. It is most important to be yourself. Every sorority is looking for a variety of members. Not everyone can or wants to be Chapter President and the sororities realize this. Keep in mind that it is up to you to present yourself to each sorority. Smile and feel free to talk and ask questions.

Remember that membership selection is not an easy task and it varies from sorority to sorority. These differences are based on national policies and chapter bylaws. Therefore, Panhellenic has no input in the membership selection process or the qualifications each sorority considers for members. Sororities strive to put together a well-rounded and balanced group of new members. There is no mold or “perfect” member. Every house wants to add diversity with each group of new members. No sorority wants to be a house of clones. It is important to be yourself and let your personality shine.

How do the sororities decide who to invite back for each round?
As your Recruitment schedule is reduced from round to round, so is the number of women each sorority is allowed to invite back. Every Potential New Member has something to offer a sorority, but sororities are required to release some Potential New Members. In deciding which Potential New Members to invite back and which to release, each chapter has a democratic voting process. In other words, one or a few sorority women cannot guarantee that a Potential New Member will receive an invitation to the next round. Also, sororities are not required to pledge their legacies. Most importantly, a sorority woman should never imply or promise a Potential New Member that she will be returning to any subsequent round.

What are recommendations and do I need them?
Recommendations (recs) are letters or statements from a sorority alumna recommending a Potential New Member for membership. While it is recommended that you secure as many recs as possible, remember that it is ultimately not your obligation to solicit recs so don’t worry if you can’t find a letter for a sorority – the sororities will also be looking for recs on you. Sometimes it can be difficult for sororities to secure recs for all PNMs so it is extremely helpful to them for you to send in recs. There is no advantage to having more than one rec for a chapter. If you wish to secure recs, the letters must come from sorority members who are alumnae. You should not contact sororities about recs – it is only appropriate for an alumna to contact her sorority. For your convenience, addresses to send recs to for each chapter are listed online. Sororities will accept recs until the last day of recruitment. If you are having difficulty securing recs, you can contact the Atlanta Alumnae Panhellenic Association at recruitment@atlantapanhellenic.org or contact your area alumnae Panhellenic group.

I am a legacy to a sorority - what should I know?
Each Potential New Member is considered on an individual basis; a legacy is no more obligated to join a particular sorority than the sorority is obligated to pledge her. The Potential New Member and the sorority should be looking for compatibility, not necessarily a family connection to the group. Panhellenic has no policies regarding legacies because each sorority has its own policy, and Panhellenic has no input in individual sorority membership decisions. More specific questions regarding legacies should be directed to the individual sororities.

What if I turn down a bid I receive?
After the Preferential Round if you wish to join a sorority, you will fill out and sign an official Membership Recruitment Acceptance Binding Agreement. Your signature on this card is binding for one year. If you then receive a bid and decide not to accept it, you will not be able to participate in Recruitment or Continuous Open Bidding for one year. We therefore urge you to think carefully before turning down a bid as emotions can temporarily cloud your thinking. Please give yourself and the sorority a chance before declining a bid.

What if I have a hard time making decisions about sororities?
Difficult decisions are a very common dilemma. Potential New Members, however, should not look at this as a problem. Most women can be happy in any of the sororities on campus. Besides, you have to keep in mind that sororities are also having to make decisions. Think carefully and look objectively at what each sorority has to offer you. A sorority should be a home away from home; a place where you feel totally comfortable and welcome. Your experiences at each Recruitment event and personal goals and desires should guide your decision making.

Students dancing at Dance Marathon

Sunday, February 18, 2018

UGA students raise more than $1 million for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

Athens, Ga. – More than 3,000 students representing more than 50 student organizations gathered in the Tate Student Center Grand Hall Sunday morning to celebrate raising $1,261,077.18 for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. This is the third year in a row that UGA Miracle, the University of Georgia’s largest student-run philanthropy, has achieved a seven-figure fundraising total.

Beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning, February 17, and lasting until the same time Sunday, the entire student center was filled with students, faculty and staff for Miracle’s annual Dance Marathon. Throughout the night, participants danced, enjoyed live music and took pictures with Hairy Dawg.

The most stirring aspect of Dance Marathon is the attendance of the “Miracle children,” Children’s Healthcare patients who interact with Miracle’s student members during the year. Nearly 50 of the children and their families were in attendance, 24 of whom took the stage one at a time throughout the night to share their inspirational stories.

Activities for the children and their families include arts and crafts, sharing of personal stories, participating in a scavenger hunt and a lot of dancing.

The event also features a “Standing Challenge,” where participants do not sit for the entirety of the event to honor the many children who cannot stand and may never be able to stand again.

Every dollar raised up to $1 million supports the Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta to fund state of the art equipment and facilities, including the UGA Miracle Gym. Beginning last year, every dollar raised above $1 million supports the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center to fund groundbreaking pediatric research.

John Caras, Miracle’s internal director, is amazed by the passion and dedication of UGA students.

“I have come across some of the most selfless, inspiring people,” Caras said. “Seeing these students fight for those who can't fight for themselves makes me proud to be a part of UGA Miracle and to be a student of the University of Georgia.”

Davis Haines, Miracle’s communications director, participates as a way to honor his older brother, Carter, who was diagnosed with brain cancer and treated at Children's Healthcare.

“After being sick for a little under a year he passed away,” Haines said. “[Being involved] also helped me along my grieving process and opened the door for something I truly had a heart for.”

This was the 23rd annual Dance Marathon. The event is a symbolic gesture of sacrificing a day in support of children who have had to sacrifice much more of their own time to combat illness in hospitals. Since its inception, Miracle has raised more than $8 million for Children’s Healthcare – $4 million of that total coming in the last four years.

UGA Miracle offered several events throughout the past year, including the annual Doughnut Dare 5K, Miracle at Midnight, and the 23rd Annual Classic City Tour of Homes, which raised a combined $24,000. The group set a new record during its $100 Day, raising approximately $353,000 in a single day. 

For the students, it’s all about connections – to the Miracle children and their families, and to each other.

“There is never a day where I do not feel connected to this cause and this organization,” Haines said. “I am certain that this organization hosts the most hardworking, impressive and loving people on this campus.”

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. was founded January 5, 1911 on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. The fraternity’s fundamental purpose, “Achievement in every field of human endeavor,” continues today and was best demonstrated best by their fraternity’s ten prestigious founders, who, for the majority, obtained degrees and went on to be successful in their fields. Today, the fraternity holds over 150,000 members with 700 undergraduate and alumni chapters in each state. Kappa Alpha Psi sponsors programs providing community service, social welfare and academic scholarship through the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation.

There are five (5) core objectives of Kappa Alpha Psi:

To unite college men of culture, patriotism, and honor, in a bond of fraternity.
Encourage honorable Achievement in every field of human endeavor.
To promote spiritual, social, intellectual, and moral welfare of its members.
To assist in the aims and purposes of colleges and universities.
To inspire service in the public interest.

From these objectives we perceive that Kappa Alpha Psi is not just another social fraternity. The fundamental purpose of Kappa Alpha Psi as envisioned and verbalized by the founding fathers gives this organization its unique and distinguished aspects. They sought to "shape a group personality unique in the annals of College Greek letter organizations around the ideal of achievement."

60 years, 3 months, and 12 days after the founding of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated and its Alpha Chapter, Brother Walter R. Allen, Sr. organized sixteen young black men at the University of Georgia led by William Kennedy to form the first interest group of prospective Kappa’s.  On April 16, 1971 Province Polemarch Joseph Johnson and the Athens Alumni Chapter chartered the Zeta Iota Chapter at the University of Georgia.  Those charter members were Regero Sampson, Ric Gilmore, Henry Childs, JuDonn Adams, Donald Perry, James Harvey, Joe Ripley, Vernon Neely, Charles Benton, Joe Tate, Ralph Bryant, Levert Hood, Sam Smiley, William Kennedy, Jackie Davis, and Jeff Brooks.  The chapter has developed and trained young for leadership since its inception.  Zeta Iota is fully engaged on the campus of the University of Georgia and active within the Athens community. The Zeta Iota chapter has attained some of the highest achievements throughout the Southeastern Province and Grand Chapter levels of Kappa Alpha Psi.  Grand Junior Vice Polemarch, four Southeastern Province Junior Vice Polemarchs, and four Guy L. Grant awardees are just some of the distinctions that have been bestowed upon the members of the chapter.  With a strong belief in excelling academically, athletically, socially, and through service, members of the Zeta Iota Chapter precisely display what it means to achieve in every field of human endeavor. Members of the Zeta Iota Chapter have graduated from the University to become doctors, lawyers, politicians, financial consultants, real estate agents, CPAs, and even Pro football and basketball players.

Beta Upsilon Chi

Beta Upsilon Chi was founded in the spring of 1985 by a handful of Christian men at The University of Texas at Austin. The fraternity quickly grew to have 36 chapters across the nation. This includes all 14 SEC schools, the first of which was the Pi chapter at The University of Georgia in 2005. BYX exists to develop brotherhood and unity among college-aged Christian men through retreats, brotherhood events and small groups.

Alpha Phi

Alpha Phi is a sisterhood of outstanding women supporting one another in lifelong achievement. Founded at Syracuse University by ten of the first twenty women admitted to the newly opened university. The Original Ten Founders were women of courageous vision and pioneering hearts. Pursuing their studies in a male-dominated university, these women yearned for a circle of friends who could sympathize with each other’s troubles and support each other’ ambitions. On September 18, 1872, these ten women initiated themselves into Alpha Phi.

Alpha Phi enhances and promotes each member's development and learning by focusing on sisterhood, service, scholarship, leadership, loyalty and character.  At The University of Georgia, our sisters share a commitment to excellence and a strong desire to help one another and their communities.

Our sisters live out our values through their leadership and service activities in UGA MIRACLE, Relay for Life, Army ROTC, Special Olympics, and Extra Special People. Their commitment to academic achievement is evidenced through membership in Order of Omega, Golden Key, UGA Honors Program, and National Society of Leadership and Success.  Many Alpha Phi's also enjoy representing the University and supporting their fellow student through activities such as UGA Diamond Darlings, the Equestrian Team, Club Cheerleaders and the Majorettes.  

The sisters of Alpha Phi welcome you to the University of Georgia and look forward to meeting you during Formal Recruitment!

An Interview with Darren Anglin

Darren Anglin with 2017 scholarship recipient Samaria Aluko

Darren Anglin with 2017 scholarship recipient Samaria Aluko

We recently had a chance to chat with alumnus, Darren Anglin, who graciously supports this scholarship for UGA students. Read below to learn more about Darren and the scholarship!

 

How did you come to decide that you would sponsor an annual scholarship?

Now that I am a graduate of the University of Georgia; I want to take the opportunity to influence students at my Alma mater who may feel like what they do goes unnoticed, or may be discouraged by people who don’t understand the difficult nature of being extraordinary. I know everyone wants to wait until they “make it” before they give back. But I am a little impatient. Beyonce said: “I just might be the next Black Bill Gates in the making”. I plan on getting in formation, and making this quote my reality. But that’s a long journey, and I want to make an impact now. I want to hold myself accountable to my local communities as I work toward personal and professional self-actualization. I don’t want to wait 30 years to give back. So I started this $500 scholarship in hopes that I could acknowledge those outstanding students that are doing positive things in the community today. Particularly the one that inspire others to be best versions of themselves.

 

What do you hope the scholarship achieves?

I hope this scholarship serves as a reminder to extraordinary students that doing great things results in great reward. I want to remind these extraordinary students that there are people out there what want to know what they are doing, the struggles they face, and support them achieving their dreams, even it seems like no one else does.

My favorite quote is by Tyler Kent White ““Don't you ever apologize for burning too brightly, or collapsing into yourself at night; that is how Galaxies are made”

The quote is really saying. Don’t let people stop you from being great, or think hard times are sign to quit.

People look up to the stars in the sky all the time and are inspired by their light and beauty. I don’t want these students to ever let their personal struggles, or negative people deter them from doing great things - that could potentially inspire others, and have a positive impact on the community. I want this scholarship to remind them that they are becoming and creating something beautiful that millions of people will be inspired by; just like a Galaxy. In our case the one we see is the Milky Way. Via Lactea is Latin for the word Milky Way. That’s how I came up with the name.

Students can use this money for their educational development and philanthropy projects.

 

Can you talk about the numerous positive contributions Greek Life makes to the campus and local communities?

Greek life at UGA specifically raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities across the nation every year! We also engage directly with the Athens community daily. I am specifically a member of the Zeta Nu chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. which is a fraternity within the National Pan Hellenic Council –one of our 4 major councils on UGA’s campus. My organization mentors Athens Clarke County youth through our Sigma Beta Club, has adopted a street in Athens – as a part of our keep Athens beautiful initiative, and aids local organizations with programs that unite the Athens community. My fraternity is just one example of the many Greek organizations that actively engage in philanthropic activities that include donating money, mentoring Athens youth, and uniting the Athens community. That is why I knew selecting my council (NPHC) as the fiscal sponsor to help me with promoting my scholarship opportunity on campus was the best decision. My fellow council members have been instrumental in actively letting students know about this opportunity because their Greek life experience has taught them the value of brotherhood/sisterhood, scholarship and service.

 

How may students apply to receive your scholarship in the future?

Student interested in applying for my scholarship can go to our Greek Life website and apply here: https://greeklife.uga.edu/content_page/darren-anglin-scholarship-content-page

The scholarship application is for next year is currently being updated and will reopen August 2017. Students can also reference my LinkedIn profile for updates, and access to the updated application after its August 2017 release. https://www.linkedin.com/in/darrenanglin/

 

Can you talk about the role of UGA in your life, and the importance of those alumni and donors that supported you, and in turn, the importance of your own efforts to give back?

During my time at UGA I was connected with several leaders who mentored, challenged, and encouraged me to leverage my strengths, and do positive things. Professors like Kim Landrum, Kristi Schaller, Kristina Collins, Ginny Phares, Tina Harris and Diane Moorman gave me advice, educational resources, and recommendations for scholarships. Student affairs leaders like: Tamara Burke, Victor Wilson, Travis Martin, Vivia Hill-Scott, Claudia Champ and Roxanna Gandia helped me find funding for my philanthropy programs, connected me with sponsors, and recommended me for professional advancements. All of these people advocated for me and helped me get the awards and scholarships, from UGA alumni and donors, that helped me continue my community impact, finish college with honors, and land a job at fortune 100 company. I couldn’t have made it this far without their support. Now I have to pay it forward by providing a scholarship to help students at UGA who were just like me. I am using the same leaders who helped me get alumni scholarships, to help me give out a scholarship as an alumni. Now that I made it to the other side, I get the opportunity to bring others with me, and that’s what it’s supposed to be about!

 

Do you have future plans for community support beyond the scholarship?

This scholarship is the first step to building out my non-profit that will focus on providing scholarships, mentor programs, and raising awareness in local communities; my end goal is to develop extraordinary individuals who let their light shine to inspire others. This scholarship keeps me accountable as I navigate my professional career so I can remain connected to my local communities, and be a light for others.

Kappa Sigma

National Founding: 1869

Local Founding: March 6th, 1901

 

Since its beginning on March the 6th, 1901, the Beta-Lambda Chapter of Kappa Sigma has remained one of the most historical and impactful organizations at the University of Georgia and beyond. The history of the Kappa Sigma fraternity dates back to the 14th Century at the University of Bologna in Italy, where a secret brotherhood was formed and spread throughout select European universities. 

The Beta-Lambda Chapter of Kappa Sigma is proud of its rich history of tradition and excellence at the University of Georgia, and the current brothers are honored to carry forth that tradition in the shadows of great men and their legacy. Our adamant brotherhood continually produces some of the most influential and recognizable names in the world today and throughout history. The list of notable Kappa Sigma alumni is extensive, with the most notable UGA alumni being former Governor and current secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Purdue. Many Brothers have served in various branches of the armed forces, and as our national Philanthropy is The Military Heroes Campaign give our deepest appreciation and gratitude towards all service men and women. ​

During the last 115 years at The University of Georgia, we strive to be second to none in all aspects of campus, including athletic endeavors, academic studies, and philanthropic events. Our social calendar includes Trophy Jam in the spring, Jackson’s Ball, tailgating and band parties in the fall, with socials and date nights throughout.  Our annual event Kristmas Σtory, benefits our national philanthropy, as well as being involved with multiple on campus philanthropies such as Heroes and Miracle.

Panhellenic Academics

The Panhellenic system takes seriously its role in helping its members excel academically. The scholarship committee serves as a resource to all members of the Panhellenic system and works to keep academic excellence a focus of the Panhellenic Council.  The Council also awards approximately $10,000 in scholarships annually to deserving sorority women. Many chapters encourage scholastic achievement by maintaining incentive programs for members who excel in the classroom, pairing together study partners, and developing tutoring programs that are designed to fit the needs of each chapter member.

The Panhellenic system has been successful in using these and other programs to help members reach their full potential. This academic success can be illustrated by the average sorority woman's scholastic GPA, which has been higher than the average University woman's scholastic GPA for the past twenty years. No matter what field of study, the Greek system will provide its members with resources and support that will help them excel in the classroom. 

In the Spring semester of 2018, 93% of our 4,700 women achieved a 3.0 GPA or higher. Additionally, the average GPA of our Panhellenic community was a 3.52 compared to the overall UGA undergraduate women's average of a 3.38. Please view our grade reports below for specific sorority information. 

Is there a GPA requirement to participate in formal recruitment?
Although the Panhellenic Council does not require a minimum GPA to participate in recruitment, each sorority may establish their own minimum GPA required for membership. If you have a question about a particular sorority's requirement, please directly contact the chapter.

Sorority Life

Student Members of a Sorority
The University of Georgia Panhellenic Council governs the female fraternities and sororities that are members of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC). It promotes cooperation and cohesiveness within the Greek community, oversees formal recruitment for its member groups, and sponsors community service opportunities, social events and educational programs throughout the year. There are currently 19 Panhellenic chapters recognized at UGA.

CHAPTER HOUSING

Sorority members at UGA have the opportunity to live in beautiful, historic homes within walking distance of campus. Each sorority establishes it own regulations regarding members living in or out of the chapter house. Sororities often require members to live in the sorority house for one year, usually during the second year of membership. Typically, the second-year members live in the house along with the Executive Boards. Potential members should ask each sorority concerning individual requirements for living in or out of the chapter house.
 
Each sorority employs a full-time, live-in House Director, also referred to as a "House Mother." The House Director oversees the daily operations of the chapter house. The sorority houses provide a comfortable and secure environment for the members. 

Each sorority establishes house rules including visitation and quiet hours. The possession and consumption of alcohol on sorority property is prohibited. Study halls, dining facilities and workout facilities are a few of the features you will find in some of the sorority houses.  Living in the sorority house is an exceptional value, as the average cost of living in the house (including room, board, meal plan, and dues) can be less than living in UGA residence halls! Sororityhouses are truly a "home away from home." 

Click here for a map of the sorority houses.
 

An independent survey released by Gallup Education found that college graduates who are fraternity and sorority members fare better than all other college graduates in a variety of long-term outcomes. The index study of more than 30,000 college graduates released in 2014 was designed to measure the relationship between the college experience and the five essential elements of well-being. Overall, the sorority experience translates into graduates who are more likely to be engaged in the workplace; more loyal to their alma mater; and more prepared for life after college. Amid co-educational academic settings, sororities provide a safe place where women find there is connection with peers and a great sense of belonging. This instills confidence and allows for good growth.


ACADEMICS

The UGA Greek community strives to attain the highest level of academic achievement possible. By encouraging fraternity and sorority members to be active on campus and keep up their grades, the Greek system is a driving force in helping members live up to their potential. The Panhellenic GPA is consistently above that of the UGA All-Women's GPA. In the Fall semester of 2017, 91% of our 4,900 women achieved a 3.0 GPA or higher. Additionally, the average GPA of our Panhellenic community was a 3.52 compared to the overall UGA undergraduate women's average of a 3.42.  We are very proud of all the hard work our women put into their academic success.
 
 

SORORITY FINANCES

It is important for students and parents to be as informed as possible regarding the costs associated with obtaining a college education. Understanding the financial obligations associated with sorority membership is just as important. 

Sorority membership is a contractual agreement. When you join, you assume many financial obligations and it important to be aware of these obligations and take them into consideration. During formal recruitment, a potential member should ask sorority members about financial obligations and payment options. Each sorority sets its own fees and housing costs as well as the payment schedules. 

The first semester of membership if the most expensive due to many one-time fees (house corporation fee, initiation fee, etc.). All sororities are willing to work with their members on an individual basis to create payment plans if necessary. The average cost of New Member Dues is $1,600 for Fall semester.  This average includes what is required. These financial obligations do not include every expense for a member. Additional expenses (t-shirts, photographs from social events, etc.) are in no way mandatory.The cost for members not living in the house averages $1,200 per semester. This includes parlor fees, social fees, and one meal a week at the house. This amount will be the average cost for Spring semester.

The price of living in the sorority house is usually an exceptional value as the average cost of a room, board, and dues can be less than the average cost of living in a typical UGA residence hall and a 5-day meal plan. The average cost for living in the house is $3,700 per semester.  This includes sorority dues, fees, room, board, and the house meal plan. 
 
These averages were gathered from information before Recruitment in 2017. Each house provides their specific financial information during formal recruitment.

Average Cost for New Member Semester - $1,600
Average Cost for In-House Member Semester - $3,700
Average Cost for Out-of-House Semester - $1,200


Financial inquiries will be discussed during each of the summer Orientation Sessions. For specific financial information before or during formal recruitment, direct your questions to the Greek Life Office (706) 542-4612. Additionally, each sorority will also be able to answer questions during the formal recruitment events.

PHILANTHROPY & SERVICE

Philanthropy and Service are a huge part of sorority life. Each of our chapters has not only a local philanthropy, but also a national one. Each year individual chapters raise thousands of dollars toward respective philanthropies and chapters support a philanthropic events by holding fundraisers annually. Fundraisers range from canned food drives to road races and fishing tournaments.

You will learn about each of these the third day of Recruitment, Philanthropy Round. Greeks also participate in organizations across campus that focus on philanthropy, service, and the community. Just a few are listed below. Click on their name for more information: 

UGA Miracle
UGA Miracle  is one of the largest and most widely-known philanthropies on campus and is celebrating their 21st year as a campus organization. They are the in-house philanthropy for Greek Life that raises money for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Throughout the year they help raise funds for the Rehabilitation and Orthopedics departments at Children’s. Each February they host Dance Marathon, celebrating the patients at Children's and raising even more money. The event lasts a total of 24 hours where concerts, inflatable games, and a “morale dance” keep the participants' spirits high throughout the night and throughout the wee hours of the morning. In 2018 they raised a whopping $1,261,077! Over $681,000 of that total was raised by UGA sororities alone. 

UGA Student Food Pantry
The UGA Student Food Pantry was established in 2011 by sorority members on the Panhellenic Council. The intention has not changed since its founding: to provide for students in need. Hunger on college campuses has become more of a nationally-recognized problem, and students on the Panhellenic Council wanted to provide a resource for students who, a lot of the time, are spending their money on their college education and have little left over. Each Panhellenic sorority is committed to supporting and supplying the Pantry through volunteer staffing and donations. 

UGA H.E.R.O.S   
The University of Georgia 's Hearts Everywhere Reaching Out (H.E.R.O.) for Children, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life and of children affected by and infected with HIV/AIDS.  Founded by Garrett Gravesen and Ryan Gembala, this philanthropy has developed enriching programs, unforgettable experiences, and connections to the community.  H.E.R.O.'s vision is to give these kids a brighter future and better quality of life by helping them overcome the challenges of the disease in their lives through the support of community volunteers. Some of the programs that H.E.R.O. puts on include Film on the Fifty, Hero for a Day, SuperHERO Mentoring Program, and many others. Celebrities such as Mark Richt and Dominique Wilkins have worked closely with this organization in gaining support. 
 
Relay for Life 
Relay for Life is an organization on campus which rallies to celebrate cancer survivors, to remember those who have passed away, and to raise money to fight to eliminate cancer. Their fundraising events include date actions and benefit concerts; however, their main event is a 24-hour walk around the UGA Track. Each year, students, faculty, and families participate in this inspirational event with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society. Teams set up tents to camp out and can enjoy live entertainment and games throughout the evening.

Fall 2018 Recruitment: Recommendations

What is a recommendation and do I need one to participate in recruitment?
Recommendations (recs) are letters or statements from a sorority alumna recommending a PNM for membership in her specific sorority.  Many PNMs attempt to secure one recommendation from each sorority that we have represented on our campus (19) prior to the beginning of the recruitment process.  Also, most of our sororities require a recommendation for joining.  All 19 groups, at the same time, are also securing recommendations for the PNMs.  Due to the high number of PNMs participating in the recruitment process, it is often very difficult for them to find recs for everyone.  For this reason, many PNMs attempt to secure one recommendation for each sorority.  Please remember that the recommendation process can vary greatly from school to school, region to region, and state to state.  "Letters of Support" are not necessary at UGA. Recommendations offer a beneficial introduction to the chapter. However, having a recommendation does not guarantee an invitation or membership.

 

What do I need in order to get a recommendation?
You may be acquainted with alumnae from various sororities who would like to submit recommendations for you.  Once you have identified the alumn, it is customary to provide the alumna a copy of your resume or a detailed list of activities as well as a photograph.  The photo only needs to be a head shot; multiple photos are not necessary.

Click here for suggestions on what to include.

You may also want to include a copy of your transcript.  Also for the alumna's convenience, a list of UGA chapter addresses and contacts are provided below so they will know where to send the information. Most of our sororities only accept letters written by alumnae and do not accept letters written by active sorority members, however 3 of our sororities do accept collegiate recs: Alpha Gamma Delta, Delta Delta Delta, Gamma Phi Beta, and Sigma Kappa. Recommendations should be sent directly to the individual sororities.  It is appropriate that ONLY the sorority alumnae make contact with their sororities regarding recommendations.


How does a sorority like to receive recommendations?
Recommendations can be sent in electronically or via mail as a hard copy. Some can be completely submitted online through a form. The alumnae writing the recommendation may want to contact the recommendation chair (via the emails listed below) to see if there is a preferred method for the recommendation (either electronic or mailed) to be received.  Each sorority handles their own recommendation process.  There may be variations from group to group.
  

What if I don't know anyone who was in a sorority?
If you are having issues securing recs, please feel free to contact the Atlanta Alumnae Panhellenic at http://www.atlantapanhellenic.org/recruitment-recommendation-letters/ or the Atlanta Southern Crescent Alumnae Panhellenic Association at www.ascapa.org for assistance. We also suggest reaching out to your high school teachers or parents' friends as a good start!

***PLEASE NOTE THAT PANHELLENIC DOES NOT HAVE ANY RECOMMENDATION FORMS FOR INDIVIDUAL SORORITIES.  THE ALUMNAE SHOULD CONTACT THEIR SORORITIES DIRECTLY FOR THE APPROPRIATE PAPERWORK.***

DEADLINE
There is no official deadline set by UGA Panhellenic for recommendations; however, we encourage that all recommendations should be in before the start of recruitment!

Zeta Tau Alpha

 In 1898, nine young women at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia joined together in devotion to the right, the good and the true to form the Zeta Tau Alpha fraternity. At the University of Georgia, the Zetas strive to reflect their open motto “Seek the Noblest” in every aspect. The Gamma Pi chapter, chartered in 1949, is committed to excellence and continually receives national awards of the highest distinction.

Zeta prides itself on exemplary leadership, involvement and service. Members of Zeta Tau Alpha are active in UGA Cheerleading, UGA Miracle, Georgettes, UGA Equestrian, Dance Dawgs, Relay for Life, Orientation Leader, College Young Life, Crossroads, Hoop Girls, Wesley Foundation, Match Mates, UGA Heros, LeaderSHAPE, Visitors Center Staff and Diamond Darlings.

Academic achievement is also a high priority at Zeta. Many are part of the UGA Honors Program as well as the Order of Omega. Several girls have been selected for Foundation Fellows and Leonard Leadership Scholarships. Zeta Tau Alpha consistently maintains an excellent chapter grade point average that exceeds the overall University of Georgia student average.

Zeta’s national philanthropy of Breast Cancer Education and Awareness is extremely important to the chapter. Every year, the chapter hosts the Diamond Challenge Softball Tournament to raise money for the cure. The Gamma Pi chapter raised more than $50,000 in 2011 to benefit women nationwide through programs such as Race
for the Cure and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The ZTA Foundation claims “Think Pink!” as a registered trademark to serve as the umbrella for all of our breast cancer education and awareness projects.

Zeta Tau Alpha welcomes you to the University of Georgia and wishes you the best of luck with Recruitment! GO DAWGS!!

Sigma Kappa

Sigma Kappas bond by having fun at social events, cheering for the Dawgs at football games, participating in various campus activities, and helping others through philanthropy. Some annual events we participate in are Homecoming activities, Violet Ball Formal, Parents Weekend, Greek Grind and Derby Days. Sisters also enjoy living and playing together in their beautiful home, which is a part of the National Register of Historic Places.

Sigma Kappas are visible and well-known on campus with members involved in a variety of activities including UGA Cheerleading, Diamond Darlings, Hoop Girls, Match Mates, ugaMiracle, HERO, Young Life, Relay for Life, Club, CURE International, the Rally Foundation and Georgia Recruitment Team among others!

Sigma Kappas also strive for academic excellence with many sisters in the Honors Program, CURO Research, Leonard Leadership Scholars, Arch Society, Tate Society, Order of Omega and other honor societies. Sigma Kappa is also proud of our extensive number of girls on Deans List, as well as the Presidential Scholars.

Sigma Kappa’s willingness to help others is apparent through their philanthropic efforts. Sisters worked together to raise $70,000 at last year’s Alzheimer’s Memory Walk, which benefitted the Alzheimer’s Association, one of our national philanthropies. They also hold The Sigma Karnival every spring. This is an event hosted by Sigma Kappa’s that is full of music, carnival games, and fun for all ages. All money raised benefits the Foundation.

Sigma Kappa welcomes you to UGA and wishes you the best of luck with Recruitment!

Sigma Delta Tau

Sigma Delta Tau was founded on March 25, 1917 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and has grown to include more than 90 college campuses across the United States and Canada. The Eta chapter was chartered at the University of Georgia on April 6, 1924. The mission of Sigma Delta Tau is to enrich the college experience of women of similar ideals, to build lasting friendships, and to foster personal growth.

On campus, Sig Delts are involved in many activities. SDT sisters hold leadership positions on the executive boards of Relay for Life, UGA Miracle, Habitat for Humanity, and Student Merchanidizing Association. Many sisters are involved in SGA, HEROs, Match Mates, Greek Emerging Leaders Resource Team, Advertising Club, and various honor societies. The Eta chapter has a strong work ethic and repeatedly holds one of the highest chapter grade point averages. Sig Delts also have active roles in UGA athletics such as Women’s Basketball, Club Soccer, Swim Club, Club Lacrosse, Club Tennis, Club Volleyball, and UGA Flagline.

In addition to campus activities, Sigma Delta Tau contributes to multiple philanthropies. Each year, the Eta chapter looks forward to its signature event, SDT Greek Grind, the largest Greek philanthropy on campus. This highly anticipated event is a dance competition among all Panhellenic sororities on campus that raises money for Prevent Child Abuse America. Each year we take this event to a new level, expanding to a larger audience and raising more money for this great cause. Sig Delt sisters also host a Spring Philanthropy called Eat Your Heart Out: Battle of the Chefs. This event is a sorority-wide dessert competition among all of the house chefs. The Eta chapter shares a close sisterhood and takes pride in its academic, social, and philanthropic endeavors.
Sigma Delta Tau welcomes you to Athens and hopes you have a wonderful Recruitment!

Pi Beta Phi

The first national organization for women, Pi Beta Phi, was founded in 1867 at Monmouth College. UGA’s Georgia Alpha Chapter was established in 1939 and is one of 200 chapters.

Pi Phi’s symbol, the arrow, is always pointed upward and worn over the heart to represent Pi Phi’s permanent place in a member’s heart.

Pi Beta Phi hosts their annual Pi Phi Pasta Fest and Pi Phiesta dinners to raise money for its philanthropy, the Pi Beta Phi Foundation. The Pi Beta Phi Foundation promotes literacy through Read > Lead > Achieve initiatives and provides scholarships to those in need. These Read > Lead > Achieve initiatives include The Arrowmount School of Arts and Crafts, a year round school for education in arts and First Book, an organization that donates books to children from lowincome families.

Some activities in which Pi Phi’s are involved include UGAMiracle, Order of Omega Honors Society, UGA Judiciary, Greek Life Ambassadors, UGA Relay, UGA HEROs, Diamond Darlings for UGA Baseball, Leonard Leadership Fellows, Match Mates for UGA Tennis, and Student Government Association.

The mission of Pi Beta phi is to promote friendship, develop women of intellect and integrity, cultivate leadership potential, and enrich lives through community service. There is an unmatched level of integrity, commitment to excellence, and a general aura of potential that sets a Pi Phi apart from the rest. That’s because she is a member of a premier organization with a history steeped in tradition. The ideals set forth by their founders are what they live by today.

Phi Mu Content Page

Phi Mu was originally founded as the Philomathean Society at Wesleyan College in Macon, GA on March 4, 1852. For several years around the turn of the century, there were discussions about becoming a national organization, and in 1900 the organization adopted the Greek name “Phi Mu” symbolizing the Society’s secret motto. In 1903 the national chapter was received by the state of Georgia, and the original membership became the first chapter of Phi Mu. The open motto for Phi Mu is “Les Soeurs Fideles” meaning “The Faithful Sisters.” The Alpha Alpha chapter of Phi Mu at the University of Georgia was founded as the first sorority at UGA on April 28, 1921.

Members of Phi Mu distinguish themselves through their commitment to leadership, philanthropy, community involvement, and loyalty to one another. Phi Mu’s National philanthropy is Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, translated as UGAMiracle on campus. To benefit this organization, Phi Mu hosts annual “Meal on the Lawn”s in both the fall and spring. Members of Phi Mu also participate in UGAMiracle’s 24-hour Dance Marathon, serving as Executive Board members, Committee leads, Committee members and Team Members. During the 2013-2014 school year, Phi Mu alone raised $115,383.82 for this cause! When you visit Phi Mu, you will experience the passion, enthusiasm and support Phi Mus continuously offer each other and their surrounding community.

The members of Phi Mu welcome you to Sorority Recruitment at the University of Georgia and cannot wait to meet you soon!

Kappa Kappa Gamma

When Kappa Kappa Gamma was founded at Illinois’ Monmouth College, the blues of the sky and the sea were chosen to represent their sisterhood. Since October 13, 1870, members of Kappa Kappa Gamma have worked to improve upon the principles that the six founding sisters set before them.

The fraternity badge is a golden key one inch in length, plain or jeweled, with the Greek letters Kappa Kappa Gamma on the stem and the letters Alpha Omega Omicron on the ward. Minerva with her owl is the patron goddess of Kappa Kappa Gamma. The coat of arms also incorporates the various fraternity symbols. The Delta Upsilon chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma was founded on February 14, 1948 at UGA.

Last year, the Kappas hosted their annual crawfish boil to raise more than $61,000 for The Common Ground Collective, and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Kappa women are at home here, but their roots are in as many places ranging from Texas to West Virginia! Members of Kappa are involved in a variety of activities and various student organizations on campus. Nationally, Kappa has grown to include 141 chapters and approximately 200,000 initiates.

Kappa Kappa Gamma wants every member throughout life to seek bonds of friendship, mutual support, opportunity for self growth, respect for intellectual development and an understanding and allegiance to positive ethical principals.

Kappa welcomes you to Sorority Recruitment at the University of Georgia and can’t wait to meet you!

Kappa Delta

“Let us strive for that which is honorable, beautiful and highest.”

Kappa Delta was founded in Farmville, Virginia in 1897, and the Sigma Phi Chapter was installed at UGA on March 22, 1924. National, the objective of the sorority is the foundation and perpetuation of good fellowship, friendship, and sisterly love among its members, the encouragement of literature and education, the promotion of social interest, and the furtherance of charitable and benevolent purposes.

Kappa Deltas find pride in their sisterhood through a combination of leadership, involvement, and love for each other. KD encourages scholarship, community service, and campus involvement. Members of Kappa Delta’s hold positions in numerous organizations such as Orientation Leaders, Georgia Spirit Program, Georgia Recruitment Team, UGA Hero, UGA Miracle, Relay for Life, Tate Society, Order of Omega, Student Government Association, Grady NewsSource, Dawg Camp, Georgia Gameday, Hoop Girls, Diamond Darlings, Match Mates, Deck Dawgs, and many other noteworthy organizations.

Kappa Delta is very involved in supporting local philanthropies: the Athens Council of Prevent Child Abuse and local Girl Scout troops. Our chapter hosts events for local Girl Scout troops three times each semester during which we promote recognizing inner beauty and Kappa Delta’s Confidence Coalition.

Nationwide each chapter of Kappa Delta is granted their choice of local philanthropic Shamrock Events. Each year, Sigma Phi chapter hosts a 5K-road race, known as the 5KD. Sigma Phi also hosts an All-You-Can-Eat Waffle House dinner at the Kappa Delta house. All of the proceeds from this event benefit Prevent Child Abuse American and Prevent Child Abuse Athens. While we host events throughout the year to raise money for both local and national charities, our sisters feel that the most rewarding aspect of our philanthropies is that we have the opportunity to make a difference by interacting hands-on with the families our philanthropies support.

The Kappa Delta house is the only sorority house at UGA that is structured as one main house and 19 furnished apartments. The apartments enclose a beautiful courtyard where our sisters enjoy spending time together. Kappa Delta welcomes you to UGA and wishes you the best of luck during Recruitment!

In addition to their sorority activities, Gamma Phis are involved in seemingly every facet of life at the University of Georgia.

Delta Phi Epsilon

On March 17, 1917, five women at New York University Law School took a pledge of sisterhood and loyalty, and so founded the Alpha Chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon, one of the first non-sectarian, social sororities. The Psi chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon was officially chartered on December 6, 2015 at the University of Georgia with over 150 founding members. 
 
Our sisters are very proud of our motto “esse quam videri,” to be rather than to seem to be. At Delta Phi Epsilon we embrace everyone for who they are and encourage them to be their best selves. We encourage our sisters to never change who they are just to fit in. We are proud to be a diverse group of women who hold our values of justice, sisterhood, and love in high esteem. 
 
The sisters of the Psi chapter balance their participation on campus with dedication to academics. While being heavily involved on campus, sisters have been named to the President's List, the Dean's List, and Order of Omega. Our deep involvement on campus is something we are very passionate about; our sisters are involved in UGA Miracle, UGA HEROs, Relay for Life, University Union, UGA Club Cheer, Red Hotz, Club Swimming, Club Soccer, and an abundance of many other teams and organizations. We are so excited to welcome you to UGA recruitment and wish you the best of luck!

Chi Omega

Founded in 1895 at the University of Arkansas, Chi Omega is the largest women’s fraternal organization in the world with over 320,000 initiates and 174 collegiate chapters. The Mu Beta Chapter of Chi Omega was founded on April 21, 1922 as the second sorority at the University of Georgia.

Throughout Chi Omega’s history, six great purposes have been stressed, including friendship, high standards of personnel, sincere learning and credible scholarship, community service, participation in campus activities, and career development. Members are encouraged to develop appreciation for the things in life that contribute to a finer culture, habits of responsibility, attitudes of understanding, standards of conduct that make it possible to attain the purposes, and interest in learning. Chi Omega’s open declaration is “Hellenic Culture and Christian Ideals.” Today members recognize their great heritage from which they draw their present strength and prestige.

Chi Omegas participate in many activities at UGA and in the Athens community. Current chapter members are on the executive boards of UGA Miracle, UGA HEROs, and Food2Kids. There are several members that have served as senators on the Student Government Association. Many Chi Omegas enjoy mentoring at Athens-Clarke County Elementary Schools. Others participate in club volleyball, lacrosse, soccer, and tennis, and one member is a Lady Dawg basketball player! Chi Omegas are also involved in activities such as Tap Dawgs, Order of Omega, Crossroads, Hoop Girls, and Relay for Life. Members are YoungLife Leaders and college representatives for companies, such as Target and Rent the Runway. Chi Omega hosts a fall cookout, Dawgs for a Cause, and a philanthropy event in the spring to benefit the Make-A- Wish Foundation.

Although the Chi Omega house appears small from the front, the dormitory area can accommodate 69 girls, making it one of the largest sorority houses at UGA. This allows all of the sophomores and executive board to live in the house. The courtyard (our claim to fame), which is adjacent to the living quarters and the chapter room, is a great place to study on a cool fall day, to catch a few rays in the spring time, or simply to socialize.

Alpha Gamma Delta

The Gamma Alpha Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta was installed at the University of Georgia in 1923 and is the third oldest sorority on campus. After almost ninety years on campus, the ladies of Gamma Alpha continually strive to surpass the principles of sisterhood set forth by their eleven founding members through service, scholarship, and involvement.

The Alpha Gamma Delta foundation, which benefits diabetes research is Alpha Gam’s national philanthropy. Through the foundation, large grants are made annually to organizations and individuals for diabetes research, treatment, and education. Alpha Gam hosts an annual philanthropy event each fall called Mr. Milledge, in which members of fraternities compete in a male beauty pageant. This spring Alpha Gamma Delta will also begin a new philanthropy event, titled “Sorority Fitness Games,” in which members of sororities will compete against each other in several athletic events. The money raised at each event is donated to the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation.

Not only do the sisters of Alpha Gam give back to the Foundation, but they also give back to the local community. The chapter supports Talmage Terrace and Lanier Gardens senior living community and frequently visits the residents. Alpha Gams also take pride in supporting other Greek and campus philanthropy events. Across campus, you can find an Alpha Gam in nearly every organization. Sisters participate in the UGA Honors program, Order of Omega, honors societies, and are represented as college ambassadors. Leadership comes naturally to Alpha Gams. Sisters are active in several pre-professional organizations, Young Life, Autism UGA, Manna Project International, Wesley Foundation, Golden Key, Leonard Leadership Scholars, Arch Society, as well as UGA Miracle, Relay for Life and UGA HEROs. Sisters are also involved with Redcoats, Majorettes, cheerleading, Hoop Girls, Red Hotz, Sports Medicine, and Dance Dawgs. Many of the sisters also have participated in Study Abroad programs to places all over the world including Australia, South Africa, China, New Zealand, and Spain.

Alpha Delta Pi

The “Adelphean Society” is noted as being the first secret society for college women. The founding date of 1851 gives ADPi the distinction of being the first sorority.

In 1913, the Adelphean Society changed its name to Alpha Delta Pi. The ADPi founders chose “we live for each other” as their open motto and their avowed purpose was that of bettering themselves morally, mentally and socially. From its inception, Alpha Delta Pi possessed all of the attributes of a secret order including ritual, badge, motto, grip and a password. The Beta Nu chapter of Alpha Delta Pi was installed on the University of Georgia campus in 1933. Alpha Delta Pi’s national tradition of excellence gives its sisterhood a sense of strength and unity.

Members of Alpha Delta Pi enjoy working actively with their national philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House. Their annual “Teeter Totter Barbecue” is just one way that they raise funds. This unique activity provides a wonderful opportunity for collegians and alumnae to help children throughout the United States and Canada. Since ADPi’s national support of the Ronald McDonald House began, sorority members across the country contribute over $100,000 annually to this philanthropy.

Members of ADPi are very active on the University of Georgia campus. While maintaining a high chapter grade point average, they are involved in Relay for Life, Arch Society, ugaMIRACLE,UGA HEROs, Clarke County Mentoring Program, UGA Athletics, Hoop Girls, Diamond Darlings, Order of Omega and with campus honor societies. Alpha Delta Pi welcomes you to the University of Georgia. We look forward to meeting you!

Alpha Chi Omega

Alpha Chi Omega was founded by seven women at DePauw University in 1885. Their badge, the Grecian lyre, represents the musical talents of its founders and their dedication to the arts. “Together let us seek the heights” is the motto that Alpha Chi Omega chapters strive to emulate in order to succeed as sisters. The Beta Sigma Chapter at the University of Georgia has been honored as one of the top Alpha Chi Omega chapters in the nation for over a
decade. 

The sisters of Alpha Chi Omega pride themselves on being actively involved on UGA’s campus. Many sisters hold leadership positions, including Executive Director positions, among UGA’s largest philanthropy organizations such as Relay for Life, HEROs, and UGA Miracle. Several members are also involved in academic, leadership and honor societies including SGA. Alpha Chi sisters support UGA athletics by volunteering in programs such as Deck Dawgs, UGA Gameday Hosts, Diamond Darlings, and Hoop Girls. In addition to being team ambassadors, Alpha Chi cheers on the Dawgs every Saturday during football season. GO DAWGS!

Beta Sigma is also actively involved with Relay for Life, the chapter philanthropy. They have hosted a basketball tournament for the past few years in order to raise money for Relay. The event is extremely close to the hearts of Alpha Chi sisters and allows everyone to unite in order to support Relay’s battle against cancer. Alpha Chi’s national philanthropy is Domestic Violence Awareness. Each year, Beta Sigma hosts ‘Barefoot on the Lawn,’ an event where members invite students to enjoy a home-cooked meal and hear live music at the Alpha Chi house with the goal of raising money for DVA. Alpha Chi Omega warmly welcomes you to the University of Georgia. We are looking forward to meeting you this recruitment season!

Public service, leadership development and education of youth are the hallmark of the organization’s programs and activities. Sigma Gamma Rho addresses concerns that impact society educationally, civically, and economically.

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. remains a strong sisterhood of educated women, whose members strive for “Greater Service, Greater Progress,” Sigma Gamma Rho’s commitment to service is expressed in this motto and materialized in its dedication to service programs. National programs include Operation Big Book Bag, Wee Savers, Mwanamugimu Essay Contest, Project Reassurance, Judy B.

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., an international organization of college and professional men, was founded on January 9, 1914 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. by three students, the most honorable and noble A. Langston Taylor, Charles I. Brown, and Leonard F. Morse. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity has established and run a variety of foundations, organizations, and institutions which follow the ideals and principles upon which this great fraternity was founded: Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service. Giving those ideals practical meaning has made and will continue to make Phi Beta Sigma a great and dynamic fraternity. The principles are exhibited in the motto "Culture for Service and Service for Humanity."

Phi Beta Sigma consists of men dedicated to enhancing and promoting systematic fellowship, justice, equal rights, and service to America’s communities. Being both a service and social organization, Phi Beta Sigma has many programs. The three national programs are Social Action, Education, and Bigger and Better Business. In order to implement these and other programs, the Fraternity works with organizations such as The National Boys and Girls Clubs of America, The NAACP, National Foundation of the March of Dimes, Birth Defects Division, and the American Cancer Society. Helping to shape, mold, and guide our nation and world’s young men has been achieved through our national mentor program, the Sigma Beta Club. One of the main goals of Phi Beta Sigma is to be the leading pro-active community service organization. There is a great deal of work needed to restore the faith and hope to many ailing communities across the nation. Phi Beta Sigma will play a part in the healing process.

International headquarters in Washington, D.C. was the site of the national headquarters for the Million- Man March which was co-sponsored by the Men of Sigma and the Ladies of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.

100 years later, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity has emerged as an international organization of leaders with over 100,000 initiated men and chapters in the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean. The fraternity is dedicated to providing services to not only members of Sigma, but to all of humanity.

Thanks largely to seven visionary founders, respectfully known as the “Seven Jewels,” the fraternity has become one of the most prestigious and influential organizations in the world today.

Through programs and partnerships with Head Start, Boy Scouts of America, the March of Dimes, the Big Brother/Big Sister of America, the fraternity is helping to ensure the success of future generations.

Founded in 1969, with seven chapter founders referred to as “The Pearls,” over 200 men have entered the Zeta Pi Chapter.

Other campus activities that have brothers involved are the Residence Hall Association, the Redcoat Band, UGA Heroes, Hillel at UGA and Relay for Life to name just a few.

Sigma Phi Epsilon

Sig Ep House

National Founding: November 1, 1901
Local Founding: March 30, 1963

Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity (SigEp) was founded at Richmond College in 1901 by Carter Ashton Jenkens with the words “this Fraternity will be different.” Jenkens sought to develop a place where true brotherhood could be experienced and young men would build lives of character and high achievement. He based this new fraternity on three cardinal principles, Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love, and Sigma Phi Epsilon still stands as the only fraternity based on the philosophy of love. Dating back to our local founding in 1963, brothers of the Georgia Delta chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon have striven to uphold these qualities and live lives without compromise of these values. The men of Sigma Phi Epsilon seek to be scholars, athletes, leaders, and gentleman--strengthened through the bonds of brotherhood. SigEp continues to live up to these expectations, achieving consistent top achievements in grades and intramural and campus involvement, seeking to not just impact the Greek community, but also the campus as a whole. 

To encourage excellence in every aspect of life, SigEp employs the Balanced Man Program--a proven alternative approach to the pledging model. The Balanced Man Program is a four-year member development initiative that seeks to constantly challenge brothers to reach their full potential, keeping brothers involved and invested in their Fraternity through their entire college career and beyond. Each step in the process furthers a brother’s individual growth, involvement, and leadership capability with a challenge relevant to his college experience. SigEp seeks to extend its impact beyond the Greek community and is therefore committed to benefiting the community at large through various philanthropic and community service events, including the largest fraternity-run philanthropy event, Haunted House, in which sororities compete for the scariest room--all proceeds going to ugaMiracle. Every brother who graduates as a member of the Georgia Delta chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon leaves not only with a full college experience defined by genuine friendship, rich memories, and a lasting legacy on the campus around him, but also as a better man, ready to lead the world around him.

Phi Kappa Psi

Phi Psi House

National Founding: February 19, 1852
Local Founding: 1876

Phi Kappa Psi is a prominent social fraternity founded in 1852 at Jefferson College in Pennsylvania. On a national level, Phi Kappa Psi has a large base of support and the largest endowment fund of any national fraternity. Through the endowment fund, over $250,000 in scholarships are available for deserving brothers in and out of the classroom. 

The Georgia Alpha Chapter at UGA was founded on November 20, 1976. Over the past 30 plus years, our chapter has seen many changes, but our brotherhood and reputation have always remained intact as true gentlemen of integrity. As Phi Psi, we offer you a chance to grow as a person while making friends and memories that will last long after your collegiate experience has ended. Each year, our chapter participates in many campus activities and philanthropies such as IM sports during every season, Dance Marathon, UGA Heroes, and Relay for Life.

While we have very successful and active brothers dedicated to the fraternity and campus organizations such as IFC, Order of Omega, and UGA Heroes, our current growth has propelled us to still maintain a full social calendar throughout the fall and spring semesters. In the fall, we celebrate each UGA Football game with an all day tailgate and host our annual Parent's Weekend and Chartering Banquet. In the spring, we travel to a destination in the southeast for our annual Jacqueminot Rose Ball as well as throwing the annual Phi Psi Oasis party, which is one of the biggest parties at UGA. Along with these major events, we have many socials, date nights, and band parties throughout the year. 

Phi Psi offers you a change to learn valuable leadership skills and grow academically. Georgia Alpha has always had a strong academic reputation that continues today. On the leadership front, Phi Psi offers a unique experience that is unlike that of any other fraternity. Each year, brothers from around the country travel to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to attend a leadership academy sponsored Ticketmaster founder and Phi Psi alumnus, Jerry Nelson. All you pay for is the airfare to and from Cabo. All hotel, food, and beverage costs are covered. Many brothers will tell you that their trips to Cabo have been the pinnacle of their experience in Phi Psi and have shaped them for the rest of their lives.

Lee, was a near perfect example. The Southern tradition is also evident in the Chapter’s house, and Gamma Chapter has recently moved into a brand new mansion in the fall of 2008. 

The brotherhood of the Order is diverse in that while Georgia backgrounds comprise a majority of the chapter, there are also members who represent 10 other states from the South. Gamma Chapter prides itself on its brotherhood, but we also strive for excellence in academics, athletics, community service, and campus involvement. Many of the brothers actively participate in intramurals and philanthropic events benefiting the Athens community and other campus organizations. Gamma Chapter has brothers involved in the Arch Society, Ducks Unlimited, Order of Omega, Golden Key, Order of the Greek Horsemen, HERO, Interfraternity Council, SGA, and Campus Crusade for Christ. 

KA enjoys a very busy social calendar. We host band parties, socials, and date nights year round. During the fall, KA is busy with trips and tailgates for all of the Dawgs’ football games. Winter is marked by our formal Convivium weekend in Savannah and the spring is highlighted by Crimson Rose, and Cowboy Ball.

Delta Tau Delta

Delt House

National Founding: 1858
Local Founding: 1882

Founded at Bethany College in Virginia in 1858, Delta Tau Delta is one of the nation's largest and oldest Social Fraternities. Our Beta Delta Chapter at the University of Georgia was founded in 1882, making us the seventh oldest Fraternity on Campus.

Since the founding of our fraternity, the brothers of Delta Tau Delta have focused on upholding the values of brotherhood, leadership, academics, and service. Our very strong and active alumni provide Beta Delta with priceless resources. The largest building on campus, the Tate Center, and the Dean-Tate Society were both named after our Alumnus, Dean William Tate, a true representation of our gentleman traditions and values. The Delts also actively participate in intramurals, last year going to the final four in Basketball and winning the Softball All Campus League Championship for two consecutive years. Our chapter prides itself as an academic leader in the Fraternity World where we continually finish each semester with one of the highest GPAs at the University of Georgia. 

Our chapter encourages giving back to the Athens community, providing numerous opportunities for our members to do so. We actively participate in an "Adopt - a - School" program at the local Chase Street Elementary School and raise thousands of dollars each year for the Children's Miracle Network. We have a very diverse brotherhood with brothers ranging from all parts of the country, including numerous from Texas, Connecticut, South Carolina, North Carolina, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Alabama. We have brothers involved in Order of Omega, Greek Ambassadors, HERO for Children, UGA Miracle, Campus Crusades for Christ, Blue Key, Arch Society, the Georgia Football, Hockey, and Lacrosse teams, and the Dean-Tate Society. Finally, The Delts have a full social calendar filled with many socials, band parties, tailgates before football games, date nights, and an annual Beach Weekend in Panama City, Mountain Weekend in Dillard, and Spring Formal in Savannah.

A strong social calendar, involvement on campus, committed brotherhood and focus on academics all combine to make The Delts are one of the top fraternity's on campus.

Delta Sigma Phi

Delta Sigma Phi House

National Founding: 1899
Local Founding: 2001

Founded in 1899 at City College of New York, DELTA SIGMA PHI is among the nation's largest social fraternities. Delta Sig was first brought to the University of Georgia in 2001 and officially chartered as the Theta Chi chapter in 2003. Despite how recently the Theta Chi chapter was chartered, we have been awarded the Pyramid of Excellence, the highest honor given to a chapter within the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity, three times consecutively. Comprised of a diverse group of men from all over the country, we are proud to give our members the opportunity to shape new traditions as we challenge each brother to become a better man.

The Theta Chi chapter boasts an active calendar of social events. Throughout the year we host numerous band parties, attend sorority socials, and plan date nights. We constantly compete in intramural sports and conduct brotherhood events like our annual white-water rafting trip. In the fall we host our semi-formal, the Sailors Ball, in Athens and each spring, we hold our annual formal, the Carnation Ball, in historic and respected cities such as Savannah, GA, Asheville, NC, Hilton Head Island, SC and, most recently, Ft. Walton Beach, FL.

Beyond social events, Delta Sig strives to stand out among other fraternities academically and philanthropically. In challenging each man to better himself, we consistently achieve high academic success overall and with each new pledge class. Our members are actively involved in a wide variety of clubs and organizations on campus, holding leadership positions within organizations such as Dawg Camp, Tate Society, UGA HEROs, and Arch Society. Delta Sig has also been recognized for our community service efforts being named Adopt-A-Highway Group of the Year for our roadside cleanup efforts along East Campus Road here in Athens. Additionally, we participate in numerous philanthropic events each semester, from urban revitalization projects, Relay for Life, and Dance Marathon to our annual production of the Miss Sorority Row Pageant that supports the American Red Cross.

Delta Sigma Phi is looking for future leaders to carry on the ideals of our founders. Delta Sig presents an opportunity for men, characterized by a variety of interests, backgrounds, and experiences, to join an organization that embraces the individuality of each of its members, offers leadership opportunities, and conducts itself in a professional manner while remaining affordable. So, if you are looking for a brotherhood to enrich your college experience, a fraternity that motivates you to achieve your personal best, and a chapter that will train you to be an effective campus leader, then Delta Sigma Phi is for you.

Chi Psi

Chi Psi House

National Founding: May 20, 1841
Local Founding: 1890

CHI PSI Fraternity was founded on May 20, 1841 at Union College in Schenectady, New York.  Shortly after, Alpha Alpha Delta of Chi Psi was founded at the University of Georgia on April 11, 1890, with a group of 18 outstanding men, making it one of the most storied fraternities on campus. Chi Psi prides itself on being a unique society on the college campus, with many firsts among the fraternal world. As the oldest social fraternity in the nation, Chi Psi was the first to have a house, affectionately dubbed “The Lodge” among our Alphas.  Our Brotherhood was the first to have a full-time traveling leadership consultant, and the first to have an educational program that supplements the formal curriculum of college life. 

This program, Chi Psi's Program for Excellence, helps our Brothers understand the challenges they face and how to advance their lives intellectually, morally, and socially. Each year, the Program for Excellence assists brothers in their professional maturation, by pairing brothers with numerous employers across the Southeast and the entire United States.  The Program also gives Brothers the tools necessary to become exemplary gentlemen, from seminars to teach them etiquette and leadership skills, to activities that expose Brothers to the finer things in life, such as receptions and outdoor excursions with alumni.

As men of Chi Psi, we value the development of brotherhood among all members of the Alpha and strive to build unity through scholarship, leadership, and service. Furthermore, we recognize that the bond of Brotherhood is lifelong, transcending the college years, giving us an extraordinarily strong alumni base. We enjoy building these relationships throughout the year with numerous events, such as football tailgates on our lawn, trips to St. Simon's Island for the Georgia-Florida game and the Smoky Mountains for Mountain Weekend, our Fall America Party, and an annual Spring Formal. 

"The true gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies."  A man of Chi Psi is devoted to the cultivation of elevated and refined friendships. We are a family of gentleman in the pursuit of excellence.

Chi Phi

Chi Phi House

National Founding: December 24, 1824
Local Founding: 1867

The Chi Phi fraternity, founded in 1824, is the oldest social fraternity in the country. The Eta Chapter was founded at the University of Georgia in 1867, the second fraternity founded on campus. In these 142 years, the Eta Chapter has produced more Governors of the State of Georgia, more presidents of the university, and more captains of the football team than any other fraternity. Nine university buildings are named after its alumni. 

Chi Phi's success is due largely to its strong alumni association and the continuing bond of brotherhood. This year promises to be another strong year for Chi Phi. The chapter will continue to be involved in the community with our annual fundraisers and will maintain its position as one of the top fraternities on campus, academically, socially, and philanthropically. This year Eta brothers will participate in IFC, Order of Omega, Golden Key, Athens Boys and Girls Club, Athens PBJs, numerous intramural sports, and various club and varsity sports. Our social calendar is again full, highlighted by such events as Lost Weekend, Formal in Savannah, game day tailgates, and our traditional Chi Phi late nights.

Beta Theta Pi

Beta House

National Founding: August 8, 1839
Local Founding: 1846

Founded on August 8th, 1839 at Miami University, Beta Theta Pi is one of the nation’s oldest social fraternities. Tracing our roots back to the first and oldest secret society on campus, the brothers of the Epsilon Epsilon Chapter of Beta Theta Pi place strong emphasis on the cultivation of well-rounded fraternity men. We believe in maintaining excellence in all aspects of fraternity, campus, and social life. We direct all strength and effort toward the achievement of these goals. Epsilon Epsilon draws men from several southern states outside Georgia including South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Alabama, and Louisiana. Academically, Beta rarely drops out of the top four and has never fallen out of the top six. Also, Beta brothers are involved in prestigious organizations on campus including Student Judiciary, SGA, Order of Omega, Relay for Life, UGA Hero, IFC, and other prominent groups. Beta’s annual philanthropy event Choral Cup raised $7000 for the American Cancer Society in 2011 and is sure to be a success again in 2012. Beta along with Alpha Chi Omega, also raised $41,000 dollars for Relay For Life in 2011, the most of any greek organization. A Beta prides itself on an active social calendar that includes our annual Dragon’s Bacchanalia Formal in Savannah (2010, Nashville in 2011), Miracle on Milledge Semi-Formal, Ski Lodge Party, Braves/Hawks Date Nights, and socials with numerous sororities. Our social calendar culminates in our weeklong Beta Lei celebration in the spring.


This strong and growing brotherhood has won the Francis H. Sisson Award for chapter excellence the last six years in a row, for a total of 13. Further, Epsilon Epsilon has won the John Riley Knox Award five times, and this year for the fourth time in a row (1999, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010). The Knox award is the highest award a chapter of Beta can receive. Excellence and tradition runs rich through our history. At Beta, we pride ourselves on this tradition of excellence and invite you to come by and see this for yourselves.

Alpha Tau Omega

A T O House

rJaNational Founding: 1865
Local Founding: December 9, 1878

Following the Civil War, the ALPHA TAU OMEGA Fraternity was founded by three Confederate veterans at the Virginia Military Institute on September 11, 1865. Each of these men shared a hope that the divisive wounds between the South and the North might be healed through fraternal bonds and a foundation in Christian principles. Alpha Tau Omega would go on to become the first national fraternity.

The Alpha Beta Chapter of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity was founded at the University of Georgia on December 9, 1878, making it one of the university's oldest established chapters. Since that time, Alpha Beta has come to produce some of the university's most accomplished alumni and finest students, including Mr. Earl Leonard, retired Coca-Cola executive and benefactor of the Leonard Leadership Program, and Mr. Bernard Ramsey, endower of the Ramsey Center and Ramsey Scholarship.

Alpha Beta prides itself in a commitment to Brotherhood and strives to maintain a standard of excellence in academics, athletics, community service, and campus involvement. Our brothers actively support a dedication to philanthropy, with ATO raising over $35,000 over the past two years for various philanthropies such as UGA Miracle and UGA HEROs. Furthermore, the chapter actively participates in the local Relay For Life supporting The American Cancer Society. The Brothers of ATO are actively involved in the campus community through various organizations, societies, and leadership positions including Tate Society, the Leonard Leadership Program, Order of Omega, LEAD scholar program, Orientation Leaders, Georgia Recruitment Team, The Alumni Association, UGA Hero's and Dawg Camp staff among others. Furthermore, Alpha Beta's recent Pledge Classes have boasted some of the highest GPAs among fraternities.

Alpha Tau Omega enjoys a consistently full social calendar, along with a prominent tailgating spot located in front plaza of the Miller Learning Center at which we enjoy exciting and enthusiastic game days. Our events range from numerous socials and date nights, to The White Tea Rose Spring Formal in St. Augustine and the spring tradition of Viking, a historic ATO week long event, providing a proper ending to the semester.

IFC Academics

Each student at the University of Georgia has the primary goal of obtaining a degree and an education; therefore, the fraternity system takes seriously its role in helping its members excel academically. The scholarship committee serves as a resource to all members of the fraternity system and works to keep academic excellence a focus of the Interfraternity Council. The IFC rewards its members who excel academically by giving annual awards to the chapters and individuals who achieve excellence in academics. The IFC awarded $10,000 in scholarships this past year to deserving fraternity men. Many chapters encourage scholastic achievement by maintaining incentive programs for brothers who excel in the classroom, pairing together study partners, and developing tutoring programs that are designed to fit the needs of each chapter member. 
                

The fraternity system has been successful in using these and other programs to help brothers reach their full potential. This academic success can be illustrated by the average fraternity man's scholastic GPA, which has been higher than the average University man's scholastic GPA for the past twenty years. In addition, the IFC requires its fraternities to achieve a 3.00 chapter grade point average in order to have social privileges. No matter what field of study, the Greek system will provide its members with resources and support that will help them excel in the classroom.

IFC Philanthropy and Service

Philanthropy and community service provide an exciting opportunity to not only give back and enhance one’s surroundings, but also to meet new people and work with others that you may not have the chance to work with otherwise. It is one of the most rewarding activities that greek life offers.  

The Interfraternity Council provides a unique and special opportunity for fraternal chapters to interact with each other philanthropically.  In the past, IFC has played a vital role in partnering with fraternities to organize activities such as Toys for Tots and Trunk or Treat. The Interfraternity Council is also active with organizations outside the fraternal community.  We have worked with the American Red Cross to establish semi-annual blood drives in the heart of campus.  Giving back to not only the UGA community but also Athens-Clarke County is very important and the Interfraternity Council is always looking for new and exciting ways to reach out to the community.  If your organization is interested in partnering with us, or if you have any ideas or suggestions, please contact us.

 

Community Service

Community service is major component of fraternity life. Chapters take part in such community service activities as volunteering at the Boys & Girls Club, Tutoring at local schools, and serving as medical volunteers at local clinics. UGA's Interfraternity Council has also been very active with the American Red Cross, hosting blood drives at many fraternity houses. Giving back to the Athens-Clarke County is an important part of our Greek System and if your organization is interested in partnering with us, please contact Community Service Chairs for the Interfraternity Council Jordan Woodard or Gareth Kanter.

Chapters can record community service hour and philanthropy dollars raised and contributed on the Greek Life Chapter Management System.

 

Philanthropy

Each year individual chapters raise thousands of dollars toward respective philanthropies and chapters support a philanthropic events by holding fundraisers annually. Fundraisers range from canned food drives to road races and golf tournaments. Recently, the Greek community united to fully fund and build a Habitat for Humanity House, known as the House the Greeks Built. The Greek community is also a major contributor to ugaMiracle, which among other endeavors sponsors a dance marathon which benefits Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. In 2017, ugaMiracle raised over $1,270,000.

Chapters can record community service hour and philanthopy dollars raised and contributed on the Greek Life Chapter Management System.

 

UGA Miracle

Formerly known as UGA Dance Marathon, UGA Miracle raises money and awareness for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, specifically Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. For more than two decades, UGA Miracle has raised nearly $5 million that has supported the Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit (CIRU) at Scottish Rite, Egleston, and Hughes Spalding hospitals in the Atlanta area.

Members of IFC at Walk a Mile in Their Shoes

In the fall of 2009, the Interfraternity Council launched a new program that aims to identify young leaders from the moment they join a fraternity and help develop their leadership skills known as the Future Leaders Institute.

Each chapter may nominate up to four members each year from their current fall new member class or the past spring new member class to participate. Participants commit to meeting once a month in the fall and spring terms, with a goal of developing relationships with other future leaders, honing in on their own personal leadership skills, and discussing critical issues in the life of the university and Greek community.

IFC Frequently Asked Questions

What is a fraternity?
A fraternity is a group of men working together toward common goals. Fraternities strive to develop their members’ individual talents and skills to better prepare them for life after graduation.

Approximately 26% of UGA students are fraternity and sorority members. Fraternity membership varies from 8 to 138 men, with an average chapter size of 92.

What is Fraternity Rush?
Rush is the term used for the recruitment period of new members for fraternities.  Fall recruitment consists of several structured days that include an orientation meeting and the opportunity to visit each chapter house to meet members and learn more about fraternity life. 

After visiting each chapter, potential new members are free to visit any of the chapters for the next few days during unstructured recruitment.  Invitations (bids) to join a fraternity can be given out any time during the recruitment period.  Official bids will be signed at the conclusion of the process.

What is a bid?
A bid is an invitation to join a fraternity. Bids may be extended to a potential new member after the fraternity has gotten to know him. Potential new members should not feel pressured or obligated to accept a bid. Potential new members may receive numerous bids from different fraternities but can only accept one. Potential new members are encouraged to meet as many fraternity men as possible and should not concentrate on obtaining a bid from a single fraternity. Rushing more than one fraternity allows a potential new member to meet many new people during the recruitment process, even if he does not receive or accept a bid from a group.

After receiving a bid, a man has 3 options:       
a. Accept the bid - this does not become official until an IFC Bid Card is signed, either on the early signing day or at the end of the formal process
b. Hold the bid – you need not feel pressured to accept a bid immediately, but you should maintain communication with the fraternity regarding your interest
c. Decline the bid – it’s ok to decline the bid if you know you are not interested in joining that particular fraternity

Do not feel pressured to accept a bid if you are not certain of your decision. IFC recommends exploring as many options as possible and as many chapters as necessary until you are sure of your decision. Fraternity men should not put undue pressure on you to make a decision. 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this contact us at our office (706-542-4612) or after hours number (706-207-0779)

How do I register for fall recruitment?
On-line registration is mandatory for those planning to join a fraternity.  Some fraternities extend bids throughout the summer.  For those men accepting bids prior to the beginning of the formal recruitment process, registration is still mandatory but house tours are optional.  Participation in the house tours is only mandatory for those men that have not already accepted a bid.

Registration will launch during the spring. To register for recruitment, simply visit the IFC webpage at ifc.uga.edu and follow the recruitment registration instructions. All registrants are required to pay a $120 registration fee.  Requests for refunds will only be considered if received by August 1, 2018.

If you have questions about the registration process, please contact the Greek Life Office at 706-542-4612.

If I go through recruitment, do I have to join a fraternity?
Although approximately 86% of potential new members will join a fraternity during the fall semester, it is not required.  Many fraternities also participate in Spring Recruitment in early January, and you may have the opportunity to join then as well.  Groups may also continue to extend bids beyond the formal processes, but these opportunities are very limited.

What type of clothing should I wear during recruitment?
Individuals going through recruitment generally wear casual, khaki-type pants or shorts and a polo-type shirt. No suits or ties are required during recruitment.

Should I attend a summer recruitment event?
Individuals going through recruitment are not required to attend any summer events prior to the beginning of recruitment.  Attendance at summer events is not required to receive a bid.  Attending summer events, if possible, does provide you an opportunity to get to know the members prior to the formal process.

Overnight summer recruitment events (ex. beach weekends, lake weekends, etc) are not permitted by the Interfraternity Council or the Greek Life Office.

What if you are participating in the Freshman College Summer Experience or have other academic commitments?
Academic commitments and the Freshman College Summer Experience requirements may conflict with some summer recruitment events.  Fraternities stress academic achievement and therefore, it is very important that potential new members honor all academic commitments.  It is imperative that potential new members not miss any academic requirement or Freshman College Summer Experience commitment in order to attend a recruitment event.  Please contact Greek Life (706-542-4612) with any questions related to academic conflicts associated with recruitment.

Do I need a recommendation to join a fraternity?
Fraternities generally do not require any recommendations. However, if recommendations are solicited, they can be sent to the chapter house or the Greek Life Office.

What are New Member Education Programs ?
The period between the moment when a new member accepts his bid and his initiation as a full brother is known as new member education (Some fraternities use the term associate member process or pledgeship). This time period is when new members become familiar with the chapter, history and values of the fraternity.  Program length varies from chapter to chapter; however, the recommended and expected length is no more than 6 weeks.  

How much does a fraternity cost?
The cost of fraternity dues and fees vary from chapter to chapter. Chapter dues are used to help maintain the chapter house, pay yearly insurance, for national fees and services, assist with philanthropy/community service projects, fraternity leadership schools, go toward academic scholarships, and help in defraying the costs of alumni, parent, and social events. For Fall 2018, average costs were as follows:

$1675          for first semester

$1572          per semester not living in the house, no meal plan included

$3458          per semester living in the house, no meal plan included

$5184          per semester living in the house, and with a meal plan included       

These are current average costs. Each fraternity will have its exact costs that can be provided upon request.

How do fraternities uphold a commitment to Academics?
Each student at the University of Georgia has the primary goal of obtaining a degree and an education; therefore, the fraternity system takes seriously its role in helping its members excel academically. The scholarship committee serves as a resource to all members of the fraternity system and works to keep academic excellence a focus of the Interfraternity Council. The IFC rewards its members who excel academically by giving annual awards and scholarships to the chapters and individuals who achieve excellence in academics. Many chapters encourage scholastic achievement by maintaining incentive programs for brothers who excel in the classroom, pairing together study partners, and developing tutoring programs that are designed to fit the needs of each chapter member. During the last two decades, the fraternity system has been successful in using these and other programs to help brothers reach their full potential. This academic success can be illustrated by the average fraternity man's scholastic GPA, which has been higher than the average University man's scholastic GPA for the past 28 years. In fact, 83% of IFC men have a 3.0 GPA or higher. No matter what field of study, the Greek system will provide its members with resources and support that will help them excel in the classroom.

Do fraternities participate in community service and philanthropy ?
Philanthropy and community service are major components of fraternity life. Each year individual chapters raise thousands of dollars and compile hundreds of hours of community service. Every chapter supports a philanthropic event by holding a fundraiser annually. Fundraisers range from canned food drives to road races and golf tournaments. The Greek community is a major contributor to UGA Miracle, which benefits Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

What sorts of leadership opportunities to fraternities offer?
The University's fraternity community is dedicated to building future leaders by providing its members with vast opportunities for leadership development. Fraternity chapters are largely self-governed and call on the talents and dedication of their members to coordinate the various aspects of fraternity life. Fraternities provide their members with numerous leadership opportunities and life experiences through their brotherhood. At the University of Georgia, fraternity men participate in almost every aspect of campus life, and they can be found in positions within numerous campus, professional, academic, and service organizations. Nationally, Greek men make up 70% of the people listed in Who's Who, 86% of the CEO's in the country's top fifty corporations, 75% of the United States Congressmen, and 85% of Supreme Court Justices since 1910. Both nationally and locally, fraternities are dedicated to teaching their members an array of leadership skills through a wide variety of leadership experiences. Through involvement in fraternal organizations, men receive many leadership and personal development opportunities that prepare them for success.

Do fraternities participate in athletics?
Intramural athletic competition is also a very exciting aspect of fraternity life, and each year fraternity men compete with and against each other in a variety of intramural sports. Flag football, basketball, softball, tennis, soccer, swimming, and ultimate frisbee are a few of the intramural sports in which fraternity men compete.

If you have any other questions or are in need of disability service, please call the Office of Greek Life at (706) 542-4612.

Welcome to UGA Greek Life

Members of Alpha Chi Omega at UGA Relay for Life

The Mission of the Greek Life Office is to provide the fraternities and sororities with educational programs and services that create, promote, and foster a learning community.
 

Greek Life

The fraternities and sororities are an established tradition at the University of Georgia, dating back more than 150 years. There are currently 61 national Greek-letter men’s and women’s groups. The self-governing, self-supporting bodies of the fraternities and sororities are the Interfraternity Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, the Multicultural Greek Council, and the Panhellenic Council. These groups coordinate events, provide educational programs, establish community wide regulations and implement policies for their member organizations.
 

Involvement in Greek Letter Organizations

The 2008 UGA National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) found that students who are members of UGA social Greek letter organizations report higher levels of overall satisfaction with the institution (statistically significant finding).  

NSSE respondents who are Greek performed higher on all the NSSE Benchmarks as compared to students who were not Greek. There was a statistically significant difference for the three benchmarks indicated below.

  • Enriching Educational Experiences 
  • Supportive Campus Environment 
  • Academic and Collaborative Learning

UGA Food Pantry

What is the UGA Food Pantry?
In 2011, UGA Students recognized a need on campus and decided to address the troubling situation of student hunger. We serve an average of 100 students per day and no one is ever asked to provide proof of need. The pantry also strives to provide information about other resources offered on campus and in the community.
 

What does the UGA Food Pantry provide?
The Pantry provides a variety of non-perishable items such as canned soup, vegetables, breakfast items, pasta + sauces, canned meat, and snacks. We recently acquired a refrigerator that allows us to provide items like cheese, yogurt, and vegetables. Visitors simply need to complete a brief, confidential form before picking up food.


Where is the UGA Food Pantry located?
We are located on the first floor of the Tate Student Center in room 146, behind the staircase. If you need to visit the Pantry outside of regular operating hours, please call us or visit a staff member across from the Pantry in the Greek Life Office.

Diversity Initiatives

Students walking in Memorial Hall Plaza

As one of the largest communities of students within the University, the UGA Greek Life Office strives to provide opportunities to better represent the diversity of students on our campus.

Greek recruitment processes are open to all enrolled UGA undergraduates regardless of race, religion, color, age, national origin, disability, or veteran status. Below of some of the ways our office is working towards our goals:
 

Greek Leader Education

  • Each calendar year we begin with a joint IFC, Panhellenic, NPHC, and MGC retreat. This is a time that our new council officers get to know each other and learn about the workings and culture of each council and its member organizations. They make a commitment to participate in an event or activity together each month.
     
  • All Council officers have participated in a variety of events – Panhellenic, NPHC, and IFC officers judged MGC’s cultural showcase as well as Sigma Beta Rho’s pageant.
     
  • This Fall, Greek Life will be planning a joint presidents dinner for all chapter presidents.
     

Evaluation of Social Event Themes

  • Meetings are called to address behavioral expectations and standards for UGA Greeks and requested thorough evaluation of all activities and events to ensure the appropriateness. All fraternity and sorority presidents are in attendance from all 4 councils.
     
  • Panhellenic, IFC, Kappa Alpha and Sigma Alpha Epsilon came together to determine that antebellum dresses as a costume were not appropriate. While we only received negative response to that action, we felt it was the right thing to do.
     
  • In April, a fraternity and sorority had an inappropriately themed party and posted an inappropriate picture on social media. The fraternity/sorority advisors and national organizations were notified. A meeting was immediately called with the leadership of the two groups (including the people in the picture) and the leadership of all of our 4 Greek Councils. We had a very open and honest discussion regarding the specific situation, and it continued beyond that specific topic to address other topics. The discussion resulted in several of our NPHC students attending the sorority’s philanthropy. Also, several NPHC students attended SAE’s Showercap party in the Spring.
     

Development of Diversity Committees

  • The Greek Life Office was approached by a member of a fraternity who was interested in gathering all minority members in IFC and Panhellenic groups together for a meeting. They developed ideas to communicate how IFC and Panhellenic groups do have minority members and to promote membership consideration to all, specifically minorities. Subsequently the group came up with 3 initiatives. This also resulted in the creation of a diversity outreach committee within Panhellenic and IFC to keep the councils focused on the topic and moving forward. The students are also attempting to collect statistics about the percentage of minority members already in IFC and Panhellenic groups.
     
  • The Diversity Outreach Committee will seek to partner with other student organizations to promote participation in Panhellenic and IFC groups as membership is open to all UGA students.
     

Workshops and Speakers

  • Sigma Nu sponsored a chapter diversity workshop presented by Barry Callendar, and invited several fraternity presidents to attend. Panhellenic Exec also attended.
     
  • UGA Faculty member Dr. Dawn Bennett- Alexander provided a diversity presentation at our Panhellenic and IFC Recruitment meeting.
     
  • During Summer Orientation, we will begin our individual orientation sessions with one session focusing on Greek membership being open to all.

Academics

Female student studying at her laptop

The Greek System strives to attain the highest level of academic achievement possible. By encouraging fraternity and sorority members to be active on campus and keep up their grades, the Greek System is a driving force in helping members live up to their potential.

Councils and chapters, as well as the inter/national organizations, provide programs and incentives for academic success. Numerous scholarships are awarded annually by chapters, councils, and the inter/national organizations for high academic success or for academic improvement. Programs are held with new members to discuss how to manage their time effectively and increase their study skills. Chapters also develop study tables and tutoring programs to assist their members.

These programs are largely successful, which is demonstrated by the grade point averages of Greek students. In the Fall of 2017, the all-Greek GPA was a 3.45, while the all-undergraduate average GPA was a 3.33.

The Interfraternity Council is a self-governing body representing the 26 member fraternities at the University of Georgia. Consisting of two members and the president of each fraternity, the IFC strives to promote excellence in all aspects of fraternity life and academic pursuits.

The internal committees of the IFC are responsible for diversity, philanthropy, public relations, recruitment, scholarship, risk management and council-wide programming initiatives. The IFC requires all new members to attend educational seminars covering topics such as hazing, drugs and alcohol, sexual assault prevention, diversity, and character development. The IFC requires its fraternities to achieve a 3.0 chapter grade point average in order to have social privileges.

Each fraternity has one vote on issues and proposals brought before the Council. Each member of the IFC is offered the opportunity to serve on a committee, and he assumes the responsibility of being the primary communication link between the Council and his chapter. The IFC is guided by the Advisor to the Interfraternity Council, who is an experienced full-time administrator in the Greek Life Office.

Greek to Me: A Parents' Guide to Fraternities and Sororities

As a parent, it's a good idea for you to learn about fraternities and sororities so you can help your son or daughter make the best decision about whether or not he or she should be part of the Greek life. This information is to help give you more insight as to what fraternities and sororities stand for.

Academics
Academics should be your child's number one focus while in college. That's why most Greek organizations require a minimum GPA in order to remain a member. Usually, each individual chapter has an elected official who is responsible for keeping track of members and their academic performance. Furthermore, many fraternities and sororities have educational programs, such as tutoring and study sessions, which can assist the entire chapters in excelling academically. Most chapters also offer member scholarships. Since obtaining a degree is the main reason for attending college, make sure your student realizes that he must keep up his grades if he wants to participate in a Greek organization.

Financial Responsibility
Your child will have financial responsibilities when it comes to joining a fraternity or sorority. At most schools, there is a one-time new member/initiation fee as well as semester membership dues. Depending on where your child goes to school and to which organization he wants to join will determine the amount of dues he/she will have to pay each semester. If your child is really interested in becoming a member of the Greek life, you need to sit down with him or her and work out a college budget to determine whether or not joining a frat or sorority is affordable. 

Hazing
In the past, fraternities and sororities have received a bad rap for participating in hazing, which is any action taken that produces bodily harm or danger, mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, fright, or ridicule. Today, all fraternity and sorority policies strictly prohibit any type of hazing activity. In fact, the organizations have taken on a zero-tolerance stance on this issue. Some states even have legislation that makes hazing a third-degree felony. If you feel that your student may be participating in inappropriate activities associated with hazing, you should contact the Hazing hotline at 706-207-0779 IMMEDIATLY. 

Time Commitment
On average, your student should expect to contribute two to four hours per week for meetings and mandatory activities. If your student has the time, he can also choose to participate in optional activities, such as holding an office, attending social events, helping out with various projects, etc. Some organizations require more time than others. Advise your child to ask questions regarding time commitments during recruitment.

Activities
Fraternities and sororities participate in many different activities. The kind of activities your student may participate in will vary depending on which chapter he/she joins. Possible activities may include:

• Fundraising for charities
• Tutoring elementary school students
• Conducting environmental and neighborhood cleanups
• Organizing clothing and book collections
• Volunteering at shelters
• Attending social mixers

You should discuss with your son or daughter what he/she would like to do and then support his/her decision. If your student decides that joining an organization is the right decision, make sure he/she thoroughly researches the different councils and chapters located on UGA’s campus.
