Academic achievement awards will be given to the organization (per council) with the highest cumulative grade point for the spring and fall 2014 semesters, highest term/semester grade point for the spring 2014 semester and fall 2014 semester. The spring 2014 highest grade point average award will be announced at the fall Greek Convocation, and the fall 2014 highest grade point average award will be announced at the spring semester Greek Night basketball game. The high cumulative awards will be announced at the All Greek Step Show. The Office of Student Life will calculate grade points averages for the awards.
Campus involvement participation will be calculated based on the involvement form/rosters submitted from each chapter (for non-greek related activities). Each member of your organization who holds membership with other campus activities (non-Greek) will earn one point. Each member of your organization who holds executive positions with other campus activities (non-Greek) will earn an additional point. For example, Cindy, who is Greek, is also President of the Marketing Association = 2 points. Forms will be distributed on March 3 and all campus involvement forms are due by Monday, April 6, 2015 @ 4:30pm to the Student Life Office.
