3 Letter to New Students New UT Students, Congratulations on your decision to attend the University of Tennessee, Knoxville! As you prepare to begin a new chapter in your life, we want to encourage you to consider participating in fraternity and sorority recruitment or membership intake. Our Greek community is one of the strongest in the South and we would love for you to become a part of our Greek family! The UT Greek community is proud of its history and equally excited about the future. Our fraternities and sororities are looking for men and women who will contribute to their organization, the campus, and the community. It is a balance of scholarship, service, leadership and sisterhood/brotherhood. Greek life is not only a collegiate commitment but a lifetime one as well. If you choose to participate in recruitment/membership intake, you will learn more about the leadership and service opportunities in the organization, on campus, or within the inter/national organization. We are extremely proud that 75% of leadership positions on campus are held by Greeks. Fraternity and sorority members at UT donate countless hours to local and national service organizations. They also make a large financial impact through donations made to various philanthropic causes. In the celebration of Greek Week, the UT Greek community built a three story house for Habitat for Humanity. Giving back to the community is a key value of all Greeks. For additional information on fraternity and sorority life at the University of Tennessee, and other valuable information, please utilize The Greek Torch. You may also contact the offices of Panhellenic Affairs or Fraternity Affairs with any questions you may have. We invite you to participate in the recruitment or membership intake process. Being a member of a fraternity or sorority will make your years at Tennessee more enjoyable and will add value to your college experience. We look forward to meeting you in August.

5 Letter to Parents Dear Tennessee Parents, On behalf of Panhellenic and Fraternity Affairs, we welcome your family to the Greek community at the University of Tennessee. Your student made one of the most important decisions of his or her life, and his or her decision to become a Tennessee Volunteer was the right one. As your son or daughter makes the major transition to college the experience can become a very exciting and challenging one for your student. This time brings new challenges and opportunities. As your student looks for ways to find their home away from home on a large, vibrant and diverse campus, we hope you will encourage your student to consider the benefits of membership in a fraternity or sorority. Membership in a Greek organization gives your student a unique opportunity to get involved on campus, gain leadership skills, develop interpersonal skills, form meaningful relationships, further enrich his or her academics, and discover what it means to be a contributing member of society. For the past 127 years, Greek life has been celebrated on the UT campus. Greek organizations are some of the largest and most visible student organizations on campus. Our 45 values-based organizations are comprised of 3500 students making up 18% of the undergraduate student population. The Greek community is an integral part of student life at the University of Tennessee and we hope the tradition will continue with your student s membership. It is our hope you will encourage your son or daughter to make the best decision about whether or not he or she should be a part of Greek life. Educate yourself by reading through The Greek Torch to become more familiar with what our fraternities and sororities have to offer your child. We hope you will have a conversation with your student about what he or she is hoping to gain from membership in a Greek organization. Fraternities and sororities are different on every college campus, so please allow your student to choose an organization with which they feel most comfortable and can grow as an individual. Participating in recruitment or membership intake is a great way for him or her to meet new friends and make the lifelong commitment to a values-based organization. This resource will help your son or daughter gain more insight into which process is best suited for him or her. The Offices of Panhellenic and Fraternity Affairs are committed to the success of your son or daughter. Our mission is to enrich your student s life experiences and foster the values our organizations were founded on. We expect our Greek organizations to enhance the mission of the institution while focusing on their commitment to service, academic development, peer accountability, social experiences, advancement of brotherhood/ sisterhood and leadership development. Congratulations to your student on their decision to attend The University of Tennessee and become a part of Volunteer country. We hope The Greek Torch serves as a valuable tool as your son or daughter contemplates the decision to join our Greek community at UT. Have a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing you in the Fall. Go Vols and Go Greek! Jim Harrison Fraternity Affairs Advisor (865) Carrie Youell Panhellenic Affairs Advisor (865)

6 Benefits of Greek Membership Scholarship The purpose of college is to receive an education and Greek organizations are fully dedicated to the values of academic achievements within fraternities and sororities. In order to facilitate this, organizations provide an environment in which each member can achieve academic success. Most chapters have specific scholarship programs that encourage each member to strive for academic excellence. Chapters do this by regulating study hours, maintaining resource files, rewarding those who do well, and helping those with difficulties. The Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council and NPHC councils support academic excellence by co-sponsoring honor societies and awarding several scholarship awards each year. Traditionally, the All-Greek GPA is higher than the All Undergraduate GPA at the University of Tennessee. Men and women of Greek organizations are represented in many college honor societies such as Mortarboard, Alpha Epsilon Delta, Gamma Phi Beta, Order of Omega, Beta Beta Beta, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and many others. Panhellenic council has high expectations for all sorority members in regards to scholarship. Whereas, the Panhellenic Council may not mandate a grade point average in order to participate in sorority recruitment, it is recommended to have a minimum 2.75 high school and/or college grade point average. While the Interfraternity Council does not recommend a specific GPA to participate in recruitment, many fraternities have a GPA requirement to be initiated into the organization. NPHC fraternities and sororities require 15 hours of completed course work at the university and a 2.5 GPA.

This program is designed to introduce new students to the academic and intellectual culture at our university. During Welcome Week, you will join classmates and professors to discuss the book in a small group setting. This year, the selected summer reading book is Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder. Reading this book and participating in activities related to it will help you develop a shared experience with your classmates, before even setting foot on campus. 2

7 Leadership One of the biggest benefits you can receive from joining a Greek organization is the opportunity for leadership. Greek life gives you the opportunity for not only leadership within your chapter but on campus as well. Greeks at the University of Tennessee make up only 18% of the student body. However, over 75% of the leadership positions on campus are held by Greeks. No matter where you look on the UT campus, Greeks are in the spotlight. Greeks are heavily involved in Student Government Association, UT Ambassadors Scholars, Resident Assistants, the Central Programming Council, Orientation Leaders, Student Alumni Associates, professional and honor societies, athletics, and many more. Service Fraternities and sororities at the University of Tennessee spend hundreds of hours and raise thousands of dollars each semester for various charities. For example, our chapters work to benefit organizations such as the Arthritis Foundation, St. Jude Hospital, March of Dimes, East Tennessee Children s Hospital, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Each Greek organization has at least one philanthropy that they host events for each semester in order to raise money and awareness. In addition to their own chapter sponsored philanthropy events, the Greek Councils at the University of Tennessee actively participate in other campus and community-wide service projects. Panhellenic and IFC host holiday parties throughout the year for the Boys and Girls of Knoxville and participate in Dance Marathon, a campus-wide fund-raiser that benefits the Children s Miracle Network. Each spring, the fraternities and sororities collectively build a Habitat for Humanity house as part of Greek Week activities. 3

8 Brotherhood and Sisterhood One of the greatest benefits of joining a fraternity or sorority is the indescribable relationship that members form with one another. This bond of brotherhood or sisterhood is a lifelong friendship that is cultivated through chapter activities and relationships. During the new member period, members will become close with other members of their new member class, delve into the history and founding principles of their chapter, and learn the greatest aspects of being Greek at the University of Tennessee. In order to maximize the benefits of Greek membership, the Interfraternity Council and the Panhellnic Council do not tolerate hazing as part of the new member period, in accordance with university policy. Greek life is an unforgettable experience that molds and shapes students. Members of each chapter share similar goals, values, and ideals, providing students with a sense of acceptance and belonging. Brother and sisters are there to share the college experience, but they also remain close for years to come. Greek Housing and Dining Options The Living situation for Greek men and women differs slightly at the University of Tennessee. The Greek women are still in the process of building houses so until this is achieved, the women all live in the same residence hall. Laurel Hall offers apartment style living arrangements for the sorority chapters. Each chapter is assigned a floor and each room is usually divided between two sorority sisters. There is no specific meal plan for these women that live in Laurel. Whether or not a chapter member must complete one year in Laurel Hall is up to the discretion of the chapter and should be discussed once a new member joins. Whether a Greek man or woman lives in Laurel or a fraternity house both of these places stand for the same ideal sisterly/brotherly bonding. There are 17 fraternities that offer their new members a house to call home. The average chapter house rent is $1500 per semester. There is also a fraternity meal plan available which costs an average of $800 per semester. Living in a chapter house offers many experiences for Greek members. Sorority Village is a remarkable project that the Panhellenic community is striving for. Each chapter at UT is in the process of raising money and designing their new houses, all 13 of which will be located just off of Kingston Pike. Houses will begin being built in several phases in early September of this year. Members will live in the house at some point during their collegiate career and may be required to purchase a meal plan. The chapters have been diligently working towards this goal of a united community of houses for many years and we are excited to have this project underway! 4

10 Greek Activities Greek life at UT offers many opportunities to become involved in fun and philanthropic events! Events such as Vol Challenge, Homecoming, All Sing, Carnicus, and Greek Week are a chance for fraternities and sororities to come together in a spirit of healthy competition! Homecoming Homecoming week is a very exciting experience at UT. Each fraternity and sorority pair up to collaborate on the homecoming events, giving them a chance to meet new people while participating in different activities. Throughout the week the All Campus Events sponsored activities include a pep rally, parade, soap box derby, banner competition, and the coveted Homecoming Queen election. The week commences with the homecoming football game, and in 2010, the Tennessee Vols will be taking on the Memphis Tigers. All Sing All Sing is a singing competition between all the many organizations on campus. Chapters have the option of pairing with other organizations or competing with their members only. The All Sing competition is another All Campus Events planned activity that gives gifted singers a chance to show their talent and dancing abilities! 6

11 Carnicus For those Greeks who prefer acting to singing, Carnicus is the event for them! Carnicus is a skit based performance for the Greeks to be involved in. Whether or not one joins in on the fun of Carnicus, it is known campus wide and many Tennessee students find joy in attending. Greek Week Greek Week is a Panhellenic, IFC, and NPHC planned event held every spring. The week includes events such as All Greek Baseball Game, Car Bash, All Greek Worship, and blood drives. The Greek community teams up with Habitat for Humanity to build an entire house during this one week. Greek Week incorporates all aspects of Greek Life into one exciting week of charity, worship, social, and fun times! 7

12 Panhellenic Council Recruitment Process The Panhellenic Council is the governing body of the 13 NPC sororities and 2 multicultural sororities on campus which also plans the formal recruitment process. The Panhellenic Executive Board, Panhellenic Recruitment Team, and the Greek Recruitment Counselors (Gamma Chi) are an integral part of the recruitment process. Their purpose is to ensure that potential new members have a positive experience during recruitment week and will answer any questions needed. From the start of recruitment, potential new members (PNMs) are part of a small group of fellow potential new members and assigned a Gamma Chi (recruitment counselor). She is a member of a sorority, but during recruitment she is working for the Panhellenic Council. Each Gamma Chi has promised not to reveal her sorority affiliation; therefore, she can give unbiased advice and reduce the pressure a PNM might feel if she knew which sorority her Gamma Chi belongs to. Gamma Chis are also not allowed to speak to any member of their chapter during the week of recruitment. The Gamma Chis affiliation with her sorority during recruitment is confidential.

14 Letters of Recommendation A recommendation is a written reference by an alumna to her sorority at UT which will give valuable and pertinent information about a potential new member (PNM). The letter is an introduction to the respective chapter about a PNMs academics, activities, and character. The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) wants you to know the responsibility for providing recommendation letters for PNMs rests with the chapters that may need additional information. It is not a requirement of Panhellenic to obtain a recommendation but highly encouraged to further emphasize your interest in our different sororities. Recommendation letters should be secured and received by the Panhellenic Affairs office no later than August 2, If you wish to obtain a recommendation letter, here are suggested steps for submitting them to the chapters: 1. Decide who will write a letter of recommendation for you. If you know a sorority alumna already, it is perfectly acceptable to inquire if she would be willing to write a recommendation letter to her sorority. It is beneficial to have someone who knows you to write a letter of recommendation on your behalf. Think about teachers, coaches, family members, church members, neighbors, and family friends who may be a sorority alumna. Let them know you are participating in recruitment and you would appreciate them submitting a letter of recommendation on your behalf. 2. You may also check with your city or town to inquire about an alumnae Panhellenic or visit the Panhellenic Affairs website and national organization websites to learn more information about the area alumnae groups chapters have throughout the United States. 3. As a PNM you will then provide the alumna who is writing the recommendation letter with 2 pictures, a copy of your transcript if possible and a current resume or activity sheet no later than July 14, Recommendation letters may be sent to the Panhellenic Affairs office in care of the particular chapter at the address below by August 2, It is important to acknowledge someone who has written a recommendation letter with a short thank you note. 6. Contact the Panhellenic Affairs office if you have any questions. The Panhellenic Council does not monitor or track recommendation letters. We simply distribute them to the respective chapter they are addressed to. Panhellenic Affairs Office 1531 W. Cumberland Ave. Knoxville, TN

15 Legacies A legacy is usually defined as a granddaughter, daughter, or sister of an initiated sorority member, unless a national organization recognizes additional relatives. Each chapter has it s own policies regarding legacies. Being a legacy of a chapter does not ensure that potential new member will receive a bid from that chapter. Each potential member is considered on an individual basis; a legacy is no more obligated to join a particular sorority than the sorority is obligated to pledge her. The potential new member and the sorority are looking for compatibility and good conversation, not necessarily a family connection to that organization. Panhellenic has no policies regarding legacies. Each sorority has their own policy regarding legacies and Panhellenic has no input in individual sorority membership decisions. 11

We are a chapter that encourages the development of leadership, academic interest, and character amongst our members. At the University of Tennessee, our ladies are found all over campus in organizations such as SGA, Panhellenic Exec, SAA, Mortar Board, Orientation Leaders, ACE, Order of Omega, the Volunteer Team, and we also have sisters who are a part of the UT Majorettes and UT Dance Team. AXO s nationwide philanthropy is supporting the victims of domestic violence. Because we work locally with several groups we are fortunate enough to see the impact resulting from our philanthropic efforts. In the fall we hold our annual DessertFest to raise money for the YWCA; in the spring we have a Paintball Tournament that benefits the Family Justice Center. Membership in Alpha Chi Omega focuses on community, diversity, and more importantly, sisterhood. It is an everlasting bond that not only gives you sisters, but leaves you with a group of life long friends. Alpha Delta Pi was founded in 1851 in Macon, Georgia and was the first Greek organization for women. We are a chapter that focuses on community, diversity and sisterhood. ADPi has many ladies that are involved in a wide range of activities here on campus. We have girls in SAA, Order of Omega, ACE, Orange Pride, SGA, Panhellenic Exec, Mortar Board, Dance Marathon Exec and Morale, UT Ambassador Scholars, Orientation Leaders, Timettes, Younglife Leaders, and RUF. You can also find our sisters on intramural teams, the UT Dance Company, and we even have a UT Cheerleader. We have held the highest GPA in Panhellenic for the past 8 semesters and this spring we won both the Panhellenic Involvement Banner and Junior Pan Involvement Banner. ADPi was also awarded Panhellenic Chapter of the Year this spring! Prior to Thanksgiving each fall, we hold our annual Turkey Tailgate before a UT football game. This is a great opportunity to get the community involved in helping us to raise money for our philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House. We really pride ourselves on the support we give our community and most importantly, to each other. 14 AΔΠ Alpha Delta Pi Quick Facts Nickname: ADPi Mascot: Alphie the Lion Colors: Azure blue and White Flower: Woodland Violet Philanthropy: Ronald McDonald House National Founding: May 15, 1851 UT Founding: May 1, 1920

The largest event we sponsor each year is the AOII barbecue. With its upcoming 50th anniversary, it is the longest running philanthropic event on UT s campus! We invite you to see what we believe makes AOII so unique: we come together like-minded in purpose, developing sisterly bonds that lead to friendships for a lifetime.

These founding purposes are friendship, high standards of personnel, sincere learning and creditable scholarship, participation in campus activities, career development, and community service. The Pi Chapter of Chi Omega is the oldest sorority at the University of Tennessee. For over a hundred years, the Chi Omegas have shared the bonds of friendship and sisterhood while excelling in academics, leadership and service.

We have members that are active in Student Alumna Associates, SGA, ACE, Order of Omega, and Mortar Board, just to name a few! Tri Delta also has a UT Majorette, a lacrosse player, and a member of the UT Dance Company.

Delta Gamma was established in 1873, and since the beginning we have been committed to the high ideals of friendship, social responsibility and character, as well as a commitment to educational and cultural interests. Each fall, Delta Gamma holds their annual philanthropy fundraiser Anchor Splash, and this year we had over 22 different organizations participate. Not only was it a fun event for all those campus organizations that participated, the money Delta Gamma raised through this event allowed us to independently fund a camp for Knoxville area children with visual disabilities. In fact, this year at the Delta Gamma National Convention, our chapter was recognized and honored for our outstanding commitment to the Delta Gamma Foundation. Some of our women held very prestigious positions on campus this year including Dance Marathon President, Order of Omega President, and Junior Panhellenic President. We also have women who actively participate in Mortar Board, Baker Scholars, SAA, Ambassador Scholars, Orange Pride, All Campus Events, Diamond Girls, Ignite Team Leaders, SGA, as well as two UT majorettes. 16 ΔΓ Delta Gamma Quick Facts Nickname: Dee Gee Mascot: Anchor Colors: Bronze, Pink, Blue Flower: Delta Gamma Cream Rose Philanthropy: Service for Sight National Founding: 1873 UT Founding: 1947

This past year the Kappa Delta chapter of the University of Tennessee was awarded Merit Chapter, which means that our chapter is in the top ten percent of all Kappa Delta chapters nationally.

39 National Pan-Hellenic Council Fraternities and Sororities The University of Tennessee is very proud of our National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) sororities and fraternities. NPHC groups do not participate in Formal recruitment. Instead, each group hosts a separate membership intake process. One major focus of the NPHC chapters is to uplift the African American community. For that reason, membership in these organizations historically tends to be African American. However, all PHC, IFC, and NPHC groups are open to all men and women. The National Pan-Hellenic Council, Incorporated (NPHC) is currently represented at the University of Tennessee by eight (8) International Greek letter Sororities and Fraternities: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.

43 The founders deeply wished to create an organization that viewed itself as a part of the general community rather than apart from the general community. They believed that each potential member should be judged by his own merits rather than his family background or affluence...without regard of race, nationality, skin tone or texture of hair. They wished and wanted their fraternity to exist as part of even a greater brotherhood which would be devoted to the inclusive we rather than the exclusive we. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated, with chapters in communities throughout the United States, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia, continues to provide service to humanity as expressed in Our Principles of Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service, in a variety of ways. Since 1950, one way Sigma Men have worked on the front lines of our communities is with its efforts in mentoring young males in elementary, middle and high school, through the Sigma Beta Club. We believe that being and providing positive male role models to the young men of our communities is critical to the growth and development of our future leaders.

50 The Cross - Wednesday Nights at 9 in Panhellenic Since 1999, God has given a group of people a call to serve in the Greek Community. It began with a group of students gathering together to discuss what it would look like to invite all the different Fraternities and Sororities to one place to Fellowship and Worship. What came out was The Cross. From Freshmen to Seniors we have got a place for everyone to come and be a part of our community. O ur goal is not to take students out of the Greek lifestyle and away from their chapter, but to equip them and put them back in. We have established many Bible Studies within chapters and are looking forward to seeing one in every chapter. Our Adult Leadership Team has begun to work on making men and women available to be mentors for any student who would like one. With the usual ministry opportunities such as a weekly meeting, in-depth Bible Study, Fall and Spring Retreats, and even Fall-Break and Spring-Break Trips, we are striving to be more than just your average College Ministry. Our director has many years experience and our interns are recently College grads and are still very close to the Greek System. Stop by once or join our Student Leadership Team, the opportunities to get involved are endless! IFC welcomes you to the University of Tennesse and wishes you the best of luck during recruitment!
