United Greek Council, Interfraternity Council, and Panhellenic Council Recruitment Officers

United Greek Council

This year the United Greek Council (UGC) is hosting its first Recruitment Week August 21-30. The idea came about in the 2008-2009 academic year and the council will finally be making it a reality this upcoming fall. The UGC Recruitment Week will consist of the eight organizations that make up the United Greek Association (UGA), showcasing themselves throughout the week of August 24-27. In addition, all UGA organizations will be participating in Week of Welcome events including, but not limited to, the All Campus Picnic and Conexion. The week will conclude with an all UGC BBQ. For more information, students, parents, alumni, and others are encouraged to contact the UGC Programming Co-Chairs, Priscilla Lopez-Rangel (p_lopez_rangel@hotmail.com) and Choncy Pena (cpena_17@hotmail.com)

Panhellenic & Interfraternity Councils

This summer, the Greek Councils sponsored a court at Hoopfest in Spokane, and hosted a table at the Tri-Cities Water Follies where they also set up an informational table, complete with marketing materials and promotional items. Earlier in the summer, the students hosted a booth at the Tastin n’ Racin hydroplane races in Sammamish, WA.  In addition, WSU Greek Councils co-sponsored a booth at Seafair in Seattle with the University of Washington Greek Community to bring attention to all Greek Life at has to offer on a broader scale.

To spread the word about these events and the Greek Community a postcard was designed to contain all of the information regarding the time and locations of the events. Each card was personalized and sent out to all of the incoming students at WSU. They had previously received a booklet filled with information about Greek life and how to go about joining a sorority or fraternity.

In addition to all of the above, the Greek Community as been represented at all of the Alive! orientation sessions. On the first night of Alive! there is a presentation to students about Greek life, presented by Panhellenic and IFC officers. The second day, the Greek Councils host a booth at the academic preview fair and are available to answer any questions students and parents may have. Students and parents attending Alive! also have the opportunity to take tours of a fraternity and sorority facilities and parents have the opportunity to attend a parent workshop to learn more about the benefits of being Greek at WSU.

As the end of summer is quickly approaching, the students are gearing up for womens formal recruitment and the mens fall recruitment.
