Texas Tech Greek Organizations Honored with Awards

Texas Tech University’s annual Greek Awards Banquet was held April 12 at the Overton Hotel Ballroom.

The awards banquet is an opportunity to acknowledge the successes as members of the Greek community, as individual sororities, fraternities and as Greek alumni.

“Typically fraternity and sorority officers as well as award nominees attend this banquet,” said Megan Robare, Panhellenic advisor for the campus. “Sororities and fraternities had an opportunity to apply for specific awards highlighting a variety of success for individuals in their organization or for the organization as a whole.”

Sororities or fraternities could apply for awards for individual members of the four Greek councils (Panhellenic Council, Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), Interfraternity Council (IFC), and National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)) and individual sororities and fraternities.
