Fraternity and Sorority Affairs  
Message from Fraternity & Sorority Affairs regarding “Unofficial St. Patrick’s Day”  
Unofficial St. Patrick’s Day is not an event that is sanctioned or sponsored by the university. It has, however, become a risky and unsafe day on campus. As a result, Fraternity & Sorority Affairs expects responsible behavior from all fraternity and sorority members and chapters during Unofficial St. Patrick’s Day. Chapters are not allowed to have events on March 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Please take the necessary precautions to ensure the responsible behavior and safety of your members.

Fraternity & Sorority Affairs is proud to team up with the Illinois Leadership Center to facilitate the Imprint I-Program on Saturday, March 11th, 2017.
The Fraternity & Sorority specific edition to Imprint provides the unique opportunity to network with Illinois Greek alumni and develop leadership skills. This program will be offered exclusively to Fraternity & Sorority members and will allow the chance to discuss leadership topics specific to the Greek community.

Imprint is one of five I-Programs offered through the university; this program focuses on teaching the art of transitional leadership– how to manage personal and professional transitions, how to lead in new environments, how to create a personal brand and build a network. This program will provide a unique opportunity to learn from a team of experienced Illinois alumni who are attending this event as Alumni Coaches.
