LETTER Dear Fellow Student, Congratulations on your decision to attend the University of South Carolina. You have entered the ranks of a long tradition of men and women whose experiences have garnered this University a rich and prosperous history. Their experiences at USC have guided them down the paths of success in their various life ventures. One of the most beneficial of these experiences is Greek life. Firmly grounded in a strong tradition of service, selfprogression, loyalty, scholarship, diversity, leadership, and lifelong friendships, Greek life has been enriching the lives of USC students since 1852. In a public University as large as the University of South Carolina, it is easy to get lost in the noise of everyday life. The transition from a high school campus to one as large as USC can be very overwhelming. Establishing meaningful connections and finding your place can be vital in making your college experience an enjoyable one. Fraternity and sorority members constitute one of the largest student organizations on campus, representing approximately 3,000 undergraduate students. Membership in a Greek organization promotes personal connection to the University through a comforting atmosphere and a network of support. Greek life provides opportunities for academic assistance, networking, leadership, community service, and social events, molding men and women into the leaders of tomorrow. The skills and relationships developed in your Greek community will serve as the tools that will carry you successfully through your college years and throughout the rest of your life. With 14 sororities and 19 fraternities, there is a place for everyone in Greek life. Each individual chapter has its own unique opportunities to offer. We hope that this guide will give you a glimpse into the many aspects of Greek life at the University of South Carolina and provide a better understanding of what being Greek can do to enhance not only your college experience but also the rest of your life. We look forward to seeing you in the fall and wish you the best of luck in all of your college pursuits! Go Gamecocks! Sincerely, Russ

Anna

GREEK VALUES All fraternities and sororities were founded upon four values: Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Friendship. As values-based organizations, Greeks at USC strive to uphold these values in their everyday lives. Below is how we go about doing this.

SCHOLARSHIP The first and foremost principle of Greeks is scholarship. Membership in a fraternity or sorority is intended to add value to your academic experience at Carolina. We are proud that our fraternities and sororities achieve higher GPA’s than other students at USC (3.28 vs. 3.14) and more importantly graduate at a higher rate (74% vs. 60%). Greeks also provide their members with over $50,000 in scholarships and academic incentives for members who do well academically. If you want to enhance your academics, then there’s no better place than a fraternity or sorority.

LEADERSHIP It has been said that fraternities and sororities are the greatest leadership laboratories ever created. Greeks foster leadership by allowing students to practice leadership that they are learning about in the classroom, honing their skills in setting and achieving goals and motivating volunteers. All chapters have national leadership schools that they send members. At USC there are several leadership development programs such as the New Member Institute (for all new members) and the Greek Leadership Retreat (for all chapter presents and governing council officers). In addition there are over a dozen leadership scholarships awarded annually to up-and-coming students to attend national Greek leadership schools. On the campus, over 65% of Carolina Greeks are involved in other student groups, often leading them. If you want to develop your leadership skills and be involved at USC, there’s no better place than a fraternity or sorority.

SERVICE Giving back to the world through service and philanthropy is a large Greek tradition. Studies show that fraternity and sorority members perform more service as undergraduates than non-Greeks, and more importantly, go on to continuing to perform more service after graduation. At Carolina Greeks not only perform over 50,000 hours of service annually; they also raise a record $250,000 annually. If you want to perform service and philanthropy, there’s no better place than a fraternity or sorority.

FRIENDSHIP The glue that holds all of this together is friendship; it is why people join fraternities and sororities. Having a group of friends who support you in your classes and out of class experiences is important and makes Carolina a “home away from home” for many of our students. The friendships you make in a fraternity and sorority are long-lasting ones that carry with many people throughout their lives. If you want to develop life-long friendships, there’s no better place than a fraternity or sorority.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT Greek students are unique in that they have already made the decision to become involved in a student organization. Fraternity and sorority membership not only means involvement in the chapter, but also encouragement to become active in other campus activities. By promoting campus and community involvement, chapters develop leadership among members. In addition to sponsoring several leadership development programs throughout the year, the Office of Greek Life encourages all students to participate in programs sponsored through the Office of Leadership Programs. The programs listed below are a few of the leadership opportunities available through the Office of Greek Life.

NEW MEMBER INSTITUTE

GREEK LEADERSHIP RETREAT

Part of the education for new members is attending the New Member Institute. This is a day long event where leaders in the Greek community and the Director of Greek Life talk with the new members about various aspects of Greek life as a whole. Greek leaders discuss with new members how to uphold our values, combat Greek stereotypes, discuss the aspects of good leadership, and examine the similarities and differences between all USC Greeks.

Held at the beginning of the Spring semester, the Greek Leadership Retreat brings chapter presidents and Fraternity and Sorority Council officers together for the purpose of enhancing the Greek community. This retreat provides the chance for Greek leaders to come together and discuss challenges, opportunities, and successes. The participants evaluate outcomes of the previous year, develop new goals, and create an action plan for implementation of the goals.

SIGMA SERIES

GAMMA SIGMA ALPHA

Sigma series is an afternoon program designed to educate new fraternity and sorority executive members about the expectations of the position that they were elected to. Sigma series is split into two parts. First, there is a series of speakers and ice breakers where participants examine their values and importance of ritual. Next, the participants are split according to their new position and meet with their corresponding sorority and fraternity council member.

Gamma Sigma Alpha is a national Greek honor society that strives to recognize Greeks who have excelled academically. All juniors and seniors who have achieved a GPA of at least 3.5 are eligible.

ORDER OF OMEGA Order of Omega was founded to recognize high academic standards and leadership among members of the Greek community. All juniors and seniors with a 3.28 GPA and who have significant leadership in both the campus and Greek Community are eligible. Membership is limited to the top 3% of Greeks at USC.

University of South Carolina

PERSONAL GROWTH SERIES In an effort to help students grow personally in the areas of Academic Success, Career Development, Social Skills, Self Discipline, Community Service and Low Risk Drinking, the Office of Greek Life introduced Personal Growth Series. Feedback from USC Greeks helped identify personal growth areas that students in the Greek community expect to be enhanced because of their Greek experience. The personal growth initiative features the monthly e-newsletter You Matter! It addresses a specific topic to all Greek students via email. The office also sponsors a Business Etiquette Dinner to help students prepare for the job search and interviews.

LEADERSHIP SORORITY COUNCIL AND FRATERNITY COUNCIL These groups are made up executive officers, chapter presidents, and a representative from each chapter. Together, they strive for overall Greek harmony while working to unite sorority women and fraternity men. The councils work to strengthen their values through cooperation, common interests, talents, and skills brought from each chapter. The executive team of each council is comprised of a president as well as officers for finance, recruitment, judicial, programming and other responsibilities. Fraternity and Sorority Council meet on a weekly basis, and once a month they convene together to discuss matters that pertain to both fraternities and sororities. The groups also offers forums for the presidents and delegates from chapters to discuss, vote on, and set policy for the entire Greek community. Fraternity and Sorority Council serves as a liaison between administration and the chapters, and oversee all the fraternities and sororities as well as Greek Programming Board and Greek Judicial Board.

GREEK PROGRAMMING BOARD The Greek Programming Board is a body of student leaders who are responsible for managing all of the programming hat occurs in the Greek community. The students on this board represent an array of areas including the Carolina/Clemson Blood Drive Chairmen and the Greek Week Chairmen. The students work diligently to facilitate programming for Greek students in the areas of Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Friendship.

GREEK PROGRAMMING CAROLINA/CLEMSON BLOOD BATTLE The Carolina/Clemson Blood Drive is the largest blood drive in the state of South Carolina. The event is sponsored annually by the Greek Programming Board in partnership with the American Red Cross. The 24th Annual Carolina/Clemson Drive resulted in USC collecting over 4,039 pints of blood, and beating Clemson! A positive tradition for both institutions the blood drive is a fun, competitive way to help those in need. Greek students at USC enjoy sponsoring this worthwhile project for the entire Carolina community.

GREEK WEEK Held annually in the spring, Greek Week is a time for all chapters to come together to celebrate our commonalities of friendship, scholarship, leadership and service. Greek Week activities include a community service project, a week-long canned food drive, a stroll competition, Greek Olympics, a lip sync and a banner competition. This year’s theme was “Greekelodeon,” and activities were based on television shows from the 1990s.

GREEK HOLIDAY SOCIAL Greek students come together each year for an evening to celebrate the holiday season. This year, the students enjoyed hot cocoa and snacks, listened to caroling and viewed a tree lighting ceremony in the Founders Circle area of the Greek Village. There are twenty homes in the Greek Village, and during the holiday season the homes are always decorated beautifully.

TRICK OR TREAT WITH THE GREEKS Each year, the Greek Community invites the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia to come and celebrate Halloween in the Greek Village. Fraternities and sororities pair up to create fun and safe games for the children to play. They also dress up and pass out candy to the trick or treaters.

USC’S GREEK LEADERSHIP MODEL THE FIVE PRACTICES OF EXEMPLARY LEADERSHIP The Leadership Challenge by Kouzes & Posner

CHALLENGING THE PROCESS Leaders search for opportunities to change the status quo. They look for innovative ways to improve the organization. They experiment and take risks. And since risk taking involves mistake and failure, leaders accept the inevitable disappointments as learning opportunities.

INSPIRING A SHARED VISION Leaders passionately believe that they can make a difference. They envision the future, creating an ideal and unique image of what the community or organization can become. Through their strong appeal and quiet persuasion, leaders enlist others in the dream. They breathe life into the shared vision and get people to see the exciting future possibilities.

ENABLING OTHERS TO ACT Leaders foster collaboration and build spirited teams. They actively involve others. Leaders understand that mutual respect is what sustains extraordinary efforts; they strive to create an atmosphere of trust and human dignity. They strengthen others by sharing information and providing choice. They give their own power away, making each person feel capable and powerful.

MODELING THE WAY Leaders create standards of excellence and then set an example for others to follow. They establish values about how constituents, colleagues, and customers should be treated. Because complex change can overwhelm and stifle action, leaders achieve small wins. They unravel bureaucracy, put up signposts, and create opportunities for victory.

ENCOURAGING THE HEART Getting extraordinary things done in organizations is hard work. To keep hope and determination alive, leaders recognize contributions that individuals make in the climb to the top. And because every winning team needs to share in the rewards of team efforts, leaders celebrate accomplishments. They make everyone feel like a hero.

GREEK LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLES 1.

How you spend your time and money indicates what is important to you

2.

If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything

3.

Good fraternities and sororities use their Ritual regularly

4.

The problem is not the lack of good ideas, but how to use your values to choose which ideas you will commit your chapter’s resources towards

5.

Organizations that have apathy don’t know where they are headed

6.

Organizations exist to meet their member’s needs

7.

The reason juniors and seniors leave chapters is because they don’t meet their needs

8.

It’s easier and cheaper to keep current members than to replace them

9.

Dissent is usually loud

10. Character is what you do when no one is looking 11. Take the high road 12. Ethics Light of Day Test: Never write or say anything you don’t want repeated on the evening news 13. Be careful: your thoughts become words, your words become deeds, and your deeds become who you are 14. All else being equal, go for diversity 15. Continuous improvement: the belief that there is no such thing as a perfect policy or program 16. Leave your chapter better than you found it 17. Success in life comes when preparation meets opportunity 18. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent.

CAROLINA REMEMBRANCE CONCERT Two years ago both USC and Clemson suffered a tragic loss when six students from Carolina and one from Clemson were lost in a fire at Ocean Isle. This tragedy touched the Greek community and representatives went to lobby at Washington D.C. for stricter fire alarm regulations throughout the country. In the following fall, Greek Programming Board decided to organize and sponsor a benefit concert to honor the students that had passed. The money that was made from selling tickets and raffles was added to a fund that annually awards scholarships in remembrance of those students. The two bands that played last year were VILLANOVA and Danger Muffin, and the t-shirts were designed by Guy Harvey. Today the Remembrance Fund gives scholarships to outstanding Greek students who uphold the values of the Greek Community.

DANCE MARATHON THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA SPONSORED ITS ELEVENTH DANCE MARATHON IN FEBRUARY OF 2009. This remarkable Greek led annual event brought together over 1,000 dancers for 24 hours that raised a record $111,000 in 2009. Dance Marathon, a 24-hour event which benefits the Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, provides a way for students to assist children with cancer and other diseases. While 24 hours may seem like a long time to dance, DM has different themed hours. Some of the themes last year were Mario Party, Legends of the Hidden Temple, and Nascar. With such fun themes, it’s no wonder that so many Greeks participate in the event! Dance Marathon was founded at Pennsylvania State University in the 1970s and has grown to other campuses to become the largest student-run philanthropy in the country. The highlight, of course, is meeting the families and children who benefit the most from the proceeds. While Dance Marathon involves all students, sorority and fraternity members are leading the charge. All members of the Greek community are encouraged to play a part in this exciting time. Some areas with which to volunteer include marketing, finance, public relations, entertainment, morale and dancer relations. Get involved with Dance Marathon and be a part of this University of South Carolina tradition! To learn more about Dance Marathon 2010 and get involved, visit www.uscdm.org.

CHAPTER LIFE Saying goodbye to friends and family can certainly be an overwhelming process. The University of South Carolina will soon become your new home away from home during your college years. Greek life offers life-long friendships and cherished memories. During recruitment week, you will learn about the unique differences and characteristics that set each of these chapters apart. Recruitment week will pose many difficult decisions so remember to keep an open mind and base your decisions about each individual chapter on your own opinions and preferences. There is also the possibility that you might like and feel at home at many of the different chapters. All Greek chapters on the USC campus emphasize the importance of a diverse environment for its members. There will be no discrimination based on religious preferences, race, creed, age, disability, or national origin. The presence of various cultures within each chapter allows for a broad and meaningful experience. Greek letter organizations at the University of South Carolina are recognized for the purposes of providing students with a small group living and learning experience, facilitating maturation, growth in the areas of scholarship, personal and leadership development, campus and community service involvement, and the clarification of values. Being a part of the Greek community makes a large school feel smaller. You will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of service projects, study sessions, and date functions.

SOCIAL The members of the Greek community know how to have fun, and creating ties of friendship is important in keeping the Greek community unified. Throughout the year, Greeks can be found tailgating at Gamecock football games, dressing up for themed socials, and dancing the night away at formals and semi formals. Greeks also organize trips together and relax in the mountains or play at the beach for weekend getaways. Themes for socials include 80’s dance party, hunters and the hunted, polos and pearls, graffiti, and of course the classic toga. Socials are a time to get creative, spend time with your friends, and have a good time.

INTRAMURALS Members from each chapter bring their competitive side out to compete in a variety of intramural sports. Intramurals also helps promote fitness and wellness among the Greek chapters. In addition to the regular intramural leagues, there is also one set up specifically for Greeks so that Greeks can compete against each other. Everyone of all athletic abilities is invited to join, or you can come and cheer on your chapter team. Intramural sports include basketball, flag football, volleyball, soccer, swimming, softball, and kickball.

SORORITY RECRUITMENT PI CHI’S WHAT IS A PI CHI? During the Recruitment week, Panhellenic counselors will be assigned to you and a small group of other potential new members. They are easily identifiable with their numbered binders, matching Pi Chi bags and shirts, and of course their friendly faces. Each of these women are prepared to assist you during the week. They will provide you with your party times and schedules and can answer any of your questions. Remember that these counselors are represented by all of the chapters that you are visiting throughout the week, and that they have disaffiliated themselves from their chapters in order to provide you with their unbiased advice, answer any of the questions you may have during the week, and reduce the pressure you may incur throughout the week. Please do not try to find out or pressure your Pi Chi into telling you her chapter affiliation. At the end of Recruitment week, the Pi Chis will reveal which chapter they belong to and rejoin their respective chapters on Bid Day. Keep in mind that your Pi Chi participated in recruitment as a potential new member, and that the women Pi Chis have additionally participated in recruitment as an initiated sorority member. She is familiar with each side of the recruitment process. Pi Chis understand what you are experiencing during the recruitment week, so please take the time to get to know and become friends with your Pi Chi. Not only do they possess valuable information and insight about the recruitment process and Greek life, but they are also a resource, an impartial listener, and a friend who can sympathize with your joys and anxieties. Each of these women were chosen to make your recruitment process more enjoyable, comfortable and exciting.

FRATERNITY PI CHI’S Each potential new fraternity member will be assigned to a Fraternity Pi Chi during Orientation on Sunday, August 16. This Pi Chi has been trained to assist those men going through the recruitment process and are impartial. They are there to guide the men through the House Tours on Monday night and to be available to answer any questions throughout the week.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q. Hazing: What happens if a chapter is caught hazing? A. The University of South Carolina has zero tolerance for hazing.

Not only is it against state law, but it is also against USC policy and the National Organization’s policies. If any individual allows him/ herself to be hazed he/she will be held responsible along with the chapter member or members.

Q. Recommendations: Is it required to have them? A. While it is helpful to have recommendations, it is not required. It is the responsibility of the chapter to secure recommendations. Letters of recommendation may be sent to: Sorority/Fraternity Recruitment Office of Greek Life Russell House Union 1400 Greene Street Columbia, SC 29208 For Alumni seeking recommendation forms, please consult your National Organization’s Web Site.

University of South Carolina

Q. I’m attending USC on a scholarship. Will Greek Membership help or hinder my grades?

A. The primary cornerstone of Greek Life is scholarship. The All Sorority Average and the All Fraternity Average are consistently above those of non-Greek men and women. However, only you can determine and achieve your academic standards. Some academic resources offered by chapters include study hours, tutors, study groups, and scholarships. Q. How involved are Greeks with other organizations on campus? A. First and foremost Greeks are a part of the USC community

and as such, campus involvement and leadership are heavily promoted. This past year 65% of fraternity and sorority members were members of other student groups. Some examples of organizations in which Greeks participate include: University Ambassadors, Garnet Circle, Student Alumni Association, Carolina Productions, Dance Marathon, Student Government, Golden Key Honor Society, Mortar Board, Omicron Delta Kappa, and Student Orientation Leaders.
