2017 Fraternity & Sorority Life Awards

Each Spring, we have an awards ceremony celebrating the Fraternity and Sorority chapter and individual accomplishments of the previous year. All of the chapters fill out an awards packet, and then an Awards Committee go through them and determine which chapters will receive which awards. Current members, alumni, and distinguished faculty and staff attend to announce the awards. Read on to see how the night turned out!

Jessica Donahoo, Panhellenic President, and Garth Grimsrud, IFC president, were the announcers for the night. They did a fantastic job!

Dr. Chris Kearns was the Guest Speaker. Dr. Kearns serves as Vice President  for Student Success at Montana State University.   Prior to coming to Montana State, Chris served for 14 years at the University of Minnesota, and for 18 years at Indiana University.  His current projects are designed to advance student success at the intersection land-grant access and academic excellence.
