Honor Societies and Committees

Honor Societies

There are also additional unique experiences for fraternity and sorority members at Ohio University. These include the Rho Lambda Honor society and several committees.  

Rho Lambda Banner

Ohio University is home to the Alpha Upsilon chapter of the Rho Lambda honor society. The organization is for sorority members who are of at least sophomore status and have achieved academic success. To be eligible for induction, potential members must complete an application and attend an interest meeting before being invited into members. Members meet on a monthly basis and cover topics of professional, social, and academic interests. Member regularly attend the Career & Leadership Development Center etiquette dinner, and discuss issues affecting the community.

Greek Community Council

The Greek Community Council is the funding source for most major programming for the Greek community at Ohio University such as All-Council Meetings, the All Greek Expo, the Officer Training Retreat, Homecoming Week festivities, the Greek Week competition, and the Sorority & Fraternity Life Awards Banquet. Funding comes from a fee charged to affiliated students through their governing council, and is overseen by staff members in the Sorority & Fraternity Life office. For major programming events, budgeting is also done by a student planning committee.


Sorority & Fraternity Life Committee

The Sorority & Fraternity Life Committee is a standing committee through Ohio University's Faculty Senate. The committee is comprised of students, faculty, and staff. The SFL Committee is responsible for upholding the academic guidelines for individual sororities and fraternities, reviewing matters affecting the Greek community, overseeing expansion and reinstatement efforts, and for making policy recommendations to the Vice President for Student Affairs.
