Greek Points were created to incentivize the Greek community to foster relationships with members in different organizations other than their own. Greek Points provide the opportunity to come together and serve the campus and the University in service and philanthropic efforts. The goal of the Greek Programming Board and the Greek point system is that members will leave the university with friends in not only their own Greek Chapter, but with friends in all four councils.

Points

Greek Programming Board and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life has the final say on the delegation of Greek Points for events. Points value will be announced before the event. The Board withholds the right to deny based on location and availability of transportation for students.

  • All Greek Point events are worth 1 Greek Point, except for OFSL- sponsored events that are worth 3 Greek Points.
  • Chapter-sponsored events:
    • If a chapter is hosting a Greek Point event by themselves, members of that chapter are not eligible to receive points for that event.
    • If a chapter is co-hosting an event within your council, members are eligible to receive 1 Greek Point.
    • If a chapter is co-hosting an event with a chapter from another council, members are eligible to receive 2 Greek Points. Chapters will be limited to two events per council each semester.
  • Events sponsored by non-UA organizations will not be approved.

Events Approval

The board has a strict two strike policy for not returning the completed attendance sheet within one week. After the first strike you will receive a warning. After two strikes your organization or chapter will be put on probation and will no longer be able to register or host Greek Point events for the rest of the semester.
