Courses and Honorary Societies
This upper-division elective course is a great opportunity to learn more about your fraternity/sorority experience! Older members in Greek-letter organizations at Washington State University have taken a course during the spring 2012 semester to prepare them for teaching first-year students in the fall. You will be educated on what it means to be a member, hot topics and issues in fraternity/sorority life, balancing your time as a student and member, and network with men and women in other fraternities and sororities at WSU. This fall we will have 17 facilitators, including the ASWSU President, five IFC and Panhellenic officers, and four chapter presidents. There are a variety of section offerings and they fill up quickly, so make sure to register soon!
Peer Leadership (UColl 497 Section 8) | Offered in the fall
The overall purpose of this course is to challenge each student to carefully analyze their responsibilities and commitments to living fraternal values in the context of leadership. This seminar course is more than a study of leadership; it is a learner-centered opportunity to develop one’s own leadership potential within the fraternity/sorority community and beyond. Students are encouraged to engage and direct their own learning. Your potential to transform your chapter, your community and even the world through the topics we will address in this course will increase if you connect with the material.
Greek Leadership Experience: Teaching Greek 101 | Offered in the spring
Fraternity/sorority members who are juniors or seniors and interested in teaching the Greek
101 course offered each fall should sign up for the Greek Leadership Experience! This graded,
variable credit, upper-division elective is a great opportunity to meet other members in the
community and have meaningful conversations about the fraternity/sorority experience.
With conversations about the fraternal movement, ritual, member education and social
issues, these students complete the semester prepared to work with the first-year members.
Order of Omega is a national leadership honor society that recognizes juniors and seniors for
their scholarship, leadership, character, and service to the greek, campus and local community.
The Alpha Zeta chapter at Washington State University participates in service activities, receives
many professional development opportunities, and gives greek students the opportunity to
meet other leaders in the community. Membership is available to the top 3 percent of Greeks at
Washington State University.
