Recommendations and Suggestions from the Greek Affairs Staff
Chapter Consultant/National Officer Visits
- We encourage chapter leadership to schedule a meeting with your visiting consultant/officer as soon as you know that they are coming to K-State
- For most visits you should budget one hour. If there are any follow up visits during a school year, you should budget 30 minutes for second visits.
- Although the Greek Affairs staff enjoys having dinner at chapter houses, we enjoy invitations to your philanthropies, special events or milestone celebrations where we can bring our families meet more of your chapter members and see your mission in action.
- The Greek Community has a healthy and vibrant calendar of events. Including chapter events, our staff could attend functions almost every evening and weekend. It is our goal as a staff to attend an event of each chapter at least once annually. However, we won’t attend without an invitation so please invite us!
To add events to the community calendar, contact the Office of Greek Affairs.
For distribution at your social events where alcohol will be present, wristbands should be given only to those attendees who are 21 years of age or older. We will issue these for free with your successful event registration. The maximum number of wristbands you can have per event is equal to one-third of the total number of expected attendees (including actives, new members, alumni, siblings, guests/dates).
