We invite you to get to know more about Greek Life at WCU by participating in our programs and events. Our community of leaders have been a cornerstone of the Catamount campus experience for over half a century.  In addition to providing oversight and advisement of the Greek Community, we sponsor and organize programs and events throughout the year that promote leadership development, community engagement and Greek council unity.

Annual Programs + Events

New Member Education Day

AGD1

 

New Member Education Day is a required program for new members of the Greek Community. The program is designed to complement chapter new member education programs by engaging members in various topics each semester including current risk management standards, positive public relations, alcohol/substance abuse issues, sexual assault awareness, hazing, and other important subjects. The goal of the program is for students to gain a better understanding of their new role in the community and how to make positive choices that will elevate the greater Catamount community.

Greek Leadership Retreats

The Greek Leadership Retreat programs, held every August & January, are designed to provide chapter presidents and council officers an opportunity to focus on leadership development, community-building, and risk management. Both retreats are designed to bring leaders in the Greek community together and work to help the community at large and strengthen chapters and councils.

Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol

GSED-IFC1

 

Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol (GAMMA) Peer Education Group was established at WCU in 2007 by the leaders of the fraternity and sorority community. GAMMA works to address issues pertaining to alcohol abuse prevention and student health and safety issues related to alcohol use. The peer educators believe that fraternity and sorority members can play a uniquely effective role in encouraging their peers to consider, talk honestly about and develop responsible habits and attitudes toward alcohol and other drugs.  For more information, visit BACCHUS GAMMA.
