About the FSILG Awards
The Fraternities, Sororities, and Independent Living Groups (FSILGs) Office hosts an annual 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 and volunteers, and individuals and chapters who have exhibited exceptional qualities.
Nominate a member or group here for the 2021 FSILG Awards. Award winners will be announced on May 20th.
In addition to the FSILG Awards, the IFC and Panhellenic Councils honor their members with individual accolades.
