Greeks Win Big Again

greeksThe URI Greek community, which is composed of 12 fraternities and 10 sororities, was the Northeast Greek Leadership Association Conference’s top awards winner last winter. URI received six out of the eight programming excellence awards, more than any other college or university. More than 550 students from 69 different schools from Virginia to Maine were in attendance.

URI won the Academic Achievement, Interfraternity Council Management, Pan-Hellenic Council Management, Leadership and Educational Development, Philanthropy and Community Service, and Risk Management and Reduction awards.

This is not the first time URI has won awards. In 2008, URI’s Greek community took home 13 out of a possible 17 awards. In 2007, URI took home 11 out of a possible 17 awards.

“URI Greek leaders have begun to build a tradition of excellence,” said Director of Greek Affairs Steve Simo. “This year’s awards banquet really reinforces that.”

“Our Greek system continues to focus on the principals on which it was founded: leadership, scholarship, and service. It is thrilling to know that others outside the University continue to recognize and reward the outstanding work of our URI student leadership,” said Tom Dougan, vice president for Student Affairs.
