Samantha O'Neal speaking about the Greek Community Forum

Greek Community Forums are inviting students from all types of Greek organizations on campus have a chance to learn something new and get to know their professors a little better.

Several forums are held at different locations at the same time on the same night and students get to choose which lecture to go to and they are open to all students involved in a Greek organization on campus. They are directed by OU's Leadership Development and Volunteerism and LEAD Team to allow for a better faculty student relationship within that community.

"Greek Community Forums are a good way for students to have a relationship with professors," Samanth O'Neal, sophomore Panhellenic representative, said. "They also they talk about subjects that are good for the students future well being."

The next Greek Community forum is Tuesday, March 3, 2009 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. For more information students can contact Leadership Development and Volunteerism at 405-325-4020 or
