Meet the Greek is an in-person kickoff event for Fall Recruitment that occurs during Welcome Week in September and allows both SFL community leaders to interact with potential new members and talk about networking, membership engagement and how to join.
Leadership is a cornerstone of the SFL community and a pillar at the heart of every distinguished sorority and fraternity at UCI. President Council meetings occur biweekly meetings amongst council and chapter leaders to discuss emerging topics and trends (locally and nationally) relevant to campus as well as aspects related to chapter involvement, philanthropic efforts and service to others as well as resources to utilize.
Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) program
In collaboration with UCI CARE, the Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) program is an ongoing initiative that enables SFL members to come together and educate themselves on and support their chapter on topics related to harm-reduction and power-based violence. Representatives from each fraternity and sorority act as VIP Chairs to facilitate various awareness programs for their chapter members and for the overall community. Through activities, conversations, and guest speakers, VIP Chairs will explore topics including bystander intervention, healthy relationships, trauma-informed response, and university resources.
The VIP program is comprised of community leaders committed to personal growth and empowerment but individuals who are trained by campus and community professionasl who develop practical experience in counseling and educational programming.
Member from a recognized sorority or fraternity that falls under one of SFL Sorority & Fraternity Life’s governing councils: IFC, MSFC, NPHC, and PHA.

To recognize all chapters and community members that uphold the pillars of Scholarship, Leadership, Friendship and Service, the SFL Awards is an annual event to highlight amazing chapters and community members. This event is sponsored by the Order of Omega, Theta Beta chapter which was founded on May 11, 1987.
Order of Omega is a leadership honor society for members of Fraternity and Sorority organizations. Order of Omega recognizes SFL community members who have exemplified high standards in the areas of scholarship, leadership, involvement within their respective organization and within the Fraternity/Sorority, campus, and local community. Members are selected from the top 3% of students at each institution. To date, over 500 chapters have been chartered throughout North America, each sharing the common goal of recognizing the many outstanding student leaders at their institution.
Recent honorees for the SFL Awards are listed here: 2022 | 2021 | 2020
New Member Education (NME) program
To shape the next generation of UCI Anteaters and those new to the SFL community, the New Member Education (NME) program is an initiative to help students understand their role in their respective sorority and fraternity while learning more about topics related to campus resources, bystander intervention, anti-hazing efforts and more.
NME will be offered in two different formats: (a) in-person or (b) virtually.
Wellness Week is a week-long event hosted by the active councils of UCI. Each day provides a different look into wellness and ways to uphold community standards. Initiated in 2019, SFL Wellness Week was started after a first-year community member passed away. In remembrance and to help current and future community members, the goal of Wellness Week is to provide undergraduate members of SFL with meaningful workshops that can improve the ways we can mitigate future risk, provide ways to better improve the overall culture on campus and enable the community to be more inclusive.
