Council Corners

An Update from IFC, Panhellenic, and United Greek Counil

Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council is looking forward to putting an emphasis on brotherhood this Fall.  Every fraternity is grounded in brotherhood and it is a strength that can be introduced into every single one of our programs.  Expect to see more collaboration amongst fraternities as a result of this focus!  IFC will also be introducing a scholarship program, developed in collaboration with the Panhellenic Council and spearheaded by the IFC Director of Scholarship and Administration and the Panhellenic Vice President of Scholarship and Administration. In addition to the above, Council officers have returned from several different summer leadership conferences and will infuse what they gathered into their constituent meetings.  The Interfraternity Council strives to provide fraternities with the tools they need to succeed so, constituents will be reintroduced to the opportunities and resources available on campus and encouraged to excel.  The Interfraternity Council will also be looking for collaboration opportunities with other student groups to increase awareness on what Greek Life has to offer students and the positive difference fraternity men make in a community. For more information about what the Interfraternity Council is up to, please contact the Interfraternity Council President, Ben Wagner, at ifcpresident@wsu.edu.

Panhellenic Council

The Panhellenic Council is going to be extremely busy this Fall assisting our sorority women in strengthening the four pillars that all Greeks pride themselves on: leadership, scholarship, service and relationship! The Panhellenic Council is currently scheduling educational and entertaining meetings for the WSU sorority community to learn more about the leadership opportunities available to them outside of their own chapter.  To strengthen scholarship our Panhellenic Vice President of Scholarship and Administration, Kendra Baker, along with her Interfraternity Council counterpart, Salih Alshobber, will be introducing a new scholarship program in the hopes of helping our chapter members become more accountable for excelling academically. In addition to the above, all of the WSU Greek Councils will be collaborating and hosting a Special Olympics event this Fall. Specifically, the Greek Community is pairing up with local law enforcement to engage in a torch run to bring awareness to Special Olympics.  Please be on the lookout for this event and help us make it a successful one.  Finally, the councils will work with the community on building meaningful relationships with one another.  The women of Panhellenic are extremely excited to kick off this promising semester with a successful recruitment coming up in August!For more information about what the Panhellenic Council is up to, please contact the Panhellenic Council President, Ali Scott, at panpresident@wsu.edu.

United Greek Council

The United Greek Council at Washington State University is exited to begin the Fall semester with a full week of recruitment activities being kicked off by Conexion (http://www.mss.wsu.edu/conexion) on August 23rd, 2009 at 3pm in the CUB Grand Ballroom. Every chapter has been invited to be involved in our UGC sponsored recruitment week and is encouraged to promote their individual organization and Greek Life at WSU to all incoming WSU students. The goal of the United Greek Council is to unite all UGC affiliated chapters and foster collaboration on events such as community service, social events, and leadership development activities. The United Greek Council will also be working on facilitating an Expo where the entire WSU student body can see how UGC fraternities and sororities make a difference on and off campus.
