Sunday morning, UNC Charlotte hosted their Greek Awards Ceremony in the Student Union to honor Fraternity and Sorority chapters for their achievements in programming, philanthropy and service.

Members of the Greek community at UNCC combined for a total of over 16,000 hours of community service, and raised over 95,000 dollars for charity. Over 11,000 goods were also donated by Fraternity and Sorority members.

The Sorority of the Year award was presented to the women of Delta Sigma Theta. This is the organization’s first time winning this award. The Iota Rho chapter also took home the trophies for Overall Excellence in Diversity Programming, Overall Excellence in Service, Overall Excellence in Non-Greek Programming, Overall Excellence in Chapter Programming, and Overall Excellence in Alumni Relations.

The men of Sigma Alpha Epsilon were crowned Fraternity of the Year. Since the tragic accident of their brother Nick Newberry, brothers have already raised over 20,000 dollars to support him. SAE also took home awards for Overall Excellence in Service and Overall Excellence in Alumni Relations.

Former Inter-fraternity Council President Chris Pockette, a member of Lambda Chi Alpha, was presented with the award of Fraternity Man of the Year. Melanie Pflucker, former president of the Diversified Greek Council and member of Lambda Theta Alpha was honored as Sorority Woman of the Year.

Chi Omega and Sigma Phi Epsilon were presented awards for winning Greek Week. Both chapters placed in the top 3 for Greek Games and came in first place at Airband. This is the second year in a row that these two chapters won the event.

Other chapters who placed in the categories above include Kappa Delta, Delta Zeta, Sigma Tau Gamma, and Alpha Phi Alpha. To learn more about Fraternity and Sorority Life at UNC Charlotte, visit the OFSL website:
