GOLD Star Program
The GOLD (Greek Outcomes for Lifelong Development) Star Program (formerly known as the FIU GOLD Standards Report) was developed in the Spring 2011 by a group of Fraternity & Sorority Leaders. Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) Staff currently use The GOLD Star Program as a tool to help measure the current standing of chapters, to determine areas of chapter development, as an annual accreditation program to ensure the continuous development and betterment of each chapter’s Greek experience. We use the data collected to report back on the accomplishments of individual chapters and the community overall. We also use this information to recognize chapters at Order of Omega’s Annual Greek Awards. The information collected informs various reports given to university and national community officials. Participation in The GOLD Star Program is required to be recognized by FSL and our campus based governing councils.
The GOLD Star Program outlines, templates and checklists can be found below. Submissions for the annual report will be submitted at the beginning (chapter rosters) and end each semester (full reports).

Sober Monitor Training
In order to ensure that the members of our fraternity and sorority community develop into well rounded leaders on campus, we believe all chapter members and leaders should be knowledgeable on how properly plan proactively for social functions. As part of our community education program we include Sober Monitor training for all of our members. As part of our Program Event Planning Form & Approval Process, we require members to be certified sober monitors in order to serve in that capacity at their respective chapters’ social functions. Sober Monitor Trainings occur twice a semester and all chapter members who have not completed sober monitor training should attend.

About Fraternity and Sorority Life
Since 1966, fraternities and sororities have contributed to the history, achievements, pride, and overall student experience on the Tampa campus and within the surrounding Tampa Bay community. Today our community fosters membership opportunities in 50 distinctly unique organizations reflecting the diversity of our USF student body with each chapter embracing our four core values: Integrity, Learning, Leadership, and Service.
The fraternity and sorority community embodies 8% of the approximate 47,000 student population. Our members are heavily involved in leadership opportunities within Student Government, Orientation, USF Ambassadors, and much more.
Today's Fraternities and Sororities are the largest and most visible values-based organizations on campus. Offering some of the most successful leadership development programs and community service opportunities fraternity and sorority life is a pillar for the community. We serve as a part of the largest network of volunteers in the nation contributing 45,000 of more than 10 million hours of service annually.
Being a member of a Greek lettered organization at the University of South Florida is a great opportunity to develop as a person and to enhance the collegiate experience. Through membership development programs that the office hosts to philanthropies created by each organization, members of the Greek community are exposed to multiple learning and growth opportunities. Being a member of a fraternity/sorority means joining an organization that is bigger than yourself where you learn about personal values and ethics and finding that organization that has the values and morals that align with your own. This aspect is something that is unique to a Greek Lettered organization and that no other student organization can offer to the average student.

The Florida Greek Standards Accreditation Program at the University of Florida is a set of guidelines and achievements that establishes minimum operating standards for social sororities and fraternities. It also provides opportunities to demonstrate success above and beyond the minimum expectations.
Based on the community’s tenets of scholarship, leadership, service and community, this program is designed to identify and encourage high ideals, principles, and standards critical to the success of each organization and its members. Originally created as simply a minimum standards program, Florida Greek Standards has since been updated as an accreditation program with its development including input from university staff, students, chapter advisors and other members from the community and fraternal movement. Through the accreditation assessment, the progress and accomplishments of each chapter can be monitored relative to meeting the established standards and opportunities for excellence.
In addition to complying with all applicable University rules, regulations, policies, and procedures, social sororities and fraternities at the University of Florida are expected to maintain accreditation. The Florida Greek Standards are divided into eight sections: Scholarship, Services, Leadership, Community, Alumni/Alumnae Relations, Risk Management, Administrative Affairs, and Facility Management. Each section is described below along with requirements and recommendations for success for organizations.

FLORIDA GREEK PILLARS
Maintaining a high level of academic success is a tradition within the Florida Greek community. The Florida Greek community offers many resources and programs to maintain high scholastic success. Some of the resources and programs available include:
scholarship chairs, chapter officers who work with the chapter and University to create a scholarship plan for its members
major matching: allows members sharing majors or classes to study together or tutor each other
incentive programs: members are recognized for academic achievement and scholastic effort
The Florida Greek community is an excellent place to gain the experience and knowledge necessary to develop strong leadership skills. The community is self-governing, giving student leaders the opportunity to shape policies and standards for their own organizations, as well as the larger fraternity and sorority community. Serving as an officer or committee chair in a chapter or governing council will help an individual develop a multitude of leadership skills not limited to conflict management, delegation, decision making, and effective communication skills. Being a member of the Florida Greek community often serves as a "gateway to involvement" in other areas of campus such as Student Government, clubs, organizations, and campus honoraries. Members of the Florida Greek community have historically held some of the highest leadership positions and honors on campus. Nationally, numerous chapters provide opportunities for members to attend regional and national leadership training conferences.
Brotherhood and Sisterhood are bonds of unity and enduring friendship. By becoming a member of the Florida Greek community, you will experience an easier transition from high school to college and gain a “home away from home.” You will meet other students with diverse backgrounds, similar interests, and new perspectives during some of the brotherhood and sisterhood activities such as chapter retreats, intramurals, socials and date functions.
Each semester members of the Florida Greek community strive to advance the University of Florida and Gainesville area communities through service and philanthropy. Throughout the year, each individual chapter in the community sponsors a philanthropy or service week project that affords members the opportunity to give back to the community.

Pi Lam at the University of Florida has traditionally had great success in the classroom, on campus and on the playing field. Our GPA is currently a 3.28 and is in the top third among IFC fraternities. On campus, we have leaders in Campus Diplomats, Engineers Without Borders, Student Government, the Public Relations Student Society of America, and many more organizations. On the playing field is where Pi Lams strive the most, with our history rooted in The Nosebowl Game. Nosebowl is a flag football game where our new members become men in 40 minutes of action against our rival Tau Epsilon Phi, also known as TEP. It has been played since 1950 and is the reason for Pi Lams’ need to succeed both on and off the field.
Pi Lam at the University of Florida is committed to raising the standard of what it is to be a fraternity man. We are looking for the best of the best to send our chapter in the right direction. In order to be an active member of Pi Lambda Phi FL Δ, members must hold a 2.8 GPA, be involved with at least two other student organizations on campus and complete 20 community service hours per semester, most of which are done through fraternity functions. We believe that through these standards our members will be able to achieve an optimal social experience while preparing themselves for the real world and giving back to the Gainesville community.
Some of the more famous alumni of the Pi Lambda Phi fraternity include Fred Levin, Sandy Koufax, Rafer Johnson, Leigh Steinberg, and Bud Selig. Mr Levin was an attorney involved in the recent litigation between the State of Florida and the tobacco companies. The University of Florida Law School has been named after him, one of three university buildings named after Pi Lams. Sandy Koufax, a baseball pitcher, is considered one of the greatest players of all time. Rafer Johnson, one of the best athletes of the century, won the Gold Medal for the decathlon in the Olympics. Leigh Steinberg is a famous sports agent. Bud Selig is the Commissioner of Baseball. Two United States Senators are Pi Lams, Herbert Kohl and Arlen Specter. Florida Delta boasts an alumni base of over 2000 alumni and brotherhood ties which extend beyond the undergraduate experience, truly living up to our motto, “Not four years, but a lifetime.”
