Develop your LEADERSHIP abilities
Membership in a fraternity or sorority will offer you countless opportunities to develop your leadership skills. Leadership conferences, officer trainings, membership retreats and fraternity and sorority community-wide leadership programs provide ways for you to hone your leadership skills.
Community-Wide Leadership Opportunities Include:
- NEW! Coming in the Fall of 2012 - the Fraternal Leadership Institute
The purpose of this leadership track series is to enhance the leadership skills of fraternity men and sorority women and to increase interaction between members of different organizations. Session topics include time management, alcohol awareness, resume building, and much more!
- Greek Leadership Retreat
NYU fraternity and sorority leaders experience a weekend away from New York City and participate in team building exercises and workshops that strengthen the fraternity and sorority community as well as the leadership within each organization.
- New Member Education
New members of the NYU Greek community are provided leadership training and education that are essential for their success at NYU and in the Greek community. Students participate in educational sessions such as leadership development, risk management, hazing awareness, academic success, and self-wellness.
Engage in SERVICE opportunities
Community service is an important part of the mission of Greek-letter organizations. You will learn to become a lifelong active citizen and contributor to society. Each organization is associated with a national and/or local philanthropy and participates in other charitable endeavors in New York City. The IGC sponsors several community-wide service events including Special Olympics, Volunteer in the Park Day, and Relay for Life.
Enhance your SCHOLARSHIP achievement
Membership in a fraternity and sorority will provide you with a mentoring network to help maximize your educational achievements. NYU's Greek organizations have a minimum GPA requirement for membership and offer scholarship opportunities and the national Greek honor society, Order of Omega. Organizations also provide the NYU community with open programs focusing on scholarship such as time management and study skills workshops.
Create Lasting FRIENDSHIPS
Membership in a fraternity or sorority will offer you opportunities to strengthen relationships with your peers and foster lifelong friendships. Social programming includes mixers, formals, sporting competitions, and Greek Week. Because our community is relatively small, we are very tight-knit, with the bonds of friendship extending from within individual organizations to the community at large.
