      HAMMOND -- Southeastern Louisiana University’s Inter-Fraternity Council, the governing body for all of the university’s fraternities, brought home a number of awards from the recent Southeastern Interfraternity Conference in Atlanta, Ga.
      The IFC received  the "Overall Fraternal Excellence Award," "Excellence in Academic Achievement and Scholarship Programming Award" and "Honorable Mention for Educational Programming," said Kay Harrison, director of Student Organizations/Greek Life.
      Harrison said the IFC also was honored with "Recognition for Excellence" designations in the areas of IFC Management, Leadership Development, Legal Concerns, Philanthropy and Community Services, Public Relations, Recruitment, Scholarship and Academic Achievement, and Social Programming.
      “Being recognized in so many areas of excellence is rare for any IFC,” Harrison said. “The excellence award recognition means that the council is exceeding the standard as compared to other universities of our size.”
      A voluntary association of fraternity governing councils in the southeastern United States, SEIFC is one of the six regional associations throughout North America designed to bring together institutions and individuals with a commitment to fraternity life on college and university campuses.
