Each April, Greek Life holds the annual Greek Awards ceremony to honor individuals and organizations who stood out and graciously dedicated their time and energy to a variety of service, leadership, academic and social efforts. Notable guests in attendance at this year’s ceremony included Dr. Douglass F. Covey, vice president of student affairs; Dr. Darryl Holloman, associate vice president and dean of students; and Kristina Clement, director of leadership programs.

Council and chapter presidents were commended for their hard work and commitment to excellence within the Greek Life and Georgia State University communities. Council presidents gave awards to members of their councils who had shown dedication and devotion to both their chapters and their respective councils. The awards included Greek Excellence, Chapter, Chapter Support, Individual and Academic Excellence.

Greek Life is proud to have such a strong, spirited and diverse Greek Life community at Georgia State University. The Greek Life community would not be what it is today without the amazing members, presidents and leaders striving to improve and grow every year.
