About the FSILG Awards
The Fraternities, Sororities, and Independent Living Groups (FSILGs) Office hosts an Awards Reception in the late spring to recognize individuals and organizations that have gone above and beyond throughout the academic year. This includes recognizing high GPA achievements, outstanding Resident Advisors, Alumni/Volunteers, as well as individuals and chapters that have exhibited exceptional qualities.
In addition to the FSILG Awards, the IFC and Panhellenic Councils honors their members with individual accolades.
FSILG Advocate Award
The FSILG Advocate Award was established in 2011 to recognize those members of the MIT community that show unyielding support of our fraternities, sororities, and independent living groups. Through their interactions with Chapters, organizations, and alumni, the FSILG Advocate upholds the principles of leadership, scholarship and citizenship by helping to make the organizations and houses stronger and safer places for members and guests.
