The Greek Excellence Gala is a vehicle to:

  1. Recognize Greek alumni annually by honoring them with a Greek Excellence award
  2. Gather together to celebrate the honorees at a special event
  3. Contribute financially to the Greek community through the Greek Excellence fund through LSU Foundation fund utilized by the office of Greek Affairs to support the Greek Community
  4. Provide positive public relations for the Greek community

The Greek Gala honors alumnae and alumni members who exemplify the ideals of their sorority or fraternity creed or code.

These alumni are of senior rank in the community, their organization or their profession. We honor these individuals for their notable accomplishments in Greek life, in the community, or their professions.
