Members of Lafayette’s Inter-Fraternity Council and Panhellenic Council recently attended the Northeast Greek Leadership Association conference, held Feb. 22-25 in Pittsburgh, Pa. The councils were recognized for both recruitment and academic excellence.

The conference’s goal is to provide learning and leadership-based programming to council members meant to enhance current and future initiatives on campus, as well as promote the founding principles and positive traditions of all Greek organizations. The conference also recognizes councils who have demonstrated excellence in a variety of categories including scholarship, leadership, service, council management, and recruitment.

Lafayette’s Panhellenic Council received the Excellence in Membership Recruitment award.

“This recognition was greatly deserved, as the Panhellenic women worked diligently to encourage unaffiliated-eligible women to register for formal recruitment and promote the values of our sororities. This is the first award for either of our councils in at least five years,” says Terry Weber, assistant director of residence life and adviser to fraternities and sororities.

Lafayette was also recognized by Gamma Sigma Alpha, a national Greek academic honor society, for achieving academic excellence in the spring 2006 semester. The College’s Greek organizations maintained a grade point average above the All Non-Affiliated GPA for that semester. The College was the only recipient of this award for the Northeastern portion of the country for that semester.

Students attending the conference were Brady Tilghman ’09 (Miami, Fla.), a mechanical engineering major; Jackie Egan ’09 (Wellesley Hills, Mass.), a history major; Marquis Scholar Anna Swanby ’09 (Oakdale, N.Y.), a government and law major; Solange Bethart ’08 (Miami, Fla.), an American studies major; and Alexandra Rickerson ’09 (Warrington, Pa.), a mechanical engineering major.
