Greek life! Of course, you were already part of a close-knit group of people simply because you were a student at Lyon (Arkansas) College, but you also chose to make even stronger, life-lasting friendships by choosing to go Greek.
It’s hard to put into words the experience of Greek life. Simply seeing your letters—ΤΚΕ, ΚΣ, ΑΞΔ, ΦΜ, XO, or ΖΒΤ—says everything.
We know your connection with your fraternity brothers and sorority sisters is still strong. We hope your connection to Lyon is as well. And with that, we issue this—a Lyon College Greek Challenge!
Donations are applied to...
The Lyon College Annual Scholarship Fund, helpingstudents afford the high-quality education Lyon College offers.
2022 Greek Challenge Details
There are two awards at stake during the 2022 Greek Challenge:
Total Giving. This challenge will gauge which Greek organization generates the greatest total giving among its members to the Annual Scholarship Fund, both alumni and current students.
Participation. This challenge will gauge which Greek organization can generate the greatest percentage of participating donors (to the Annual Scholarship Fund) among its members.
The winning organization from each category will also win a catered dinner for current students at the start of the 2022 academic year.
- • Gifts from your organization's alumni in the amount of $25 or more will count toward your participation percentage.
• Gifts from your organization's current students in the amount of $5 or more will count toward your participation percentage.
• Gifts will be counted from July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022, and may be given online, by text, by mail, or in person by bringing them to the Nichols building.
• For fairness, participation rates will be calculated based on the percentage of your organization who gives, not a simple count of the number of individuals.
Why are donations necessary?
Ninety-eight percent of Lyon students receive institutional aid, often in the form of scholarships. These scholarships are supported, in large part, by our friends and alumni who help provide our students access to an excellent, highly personalized education that launches them on a path toward success. And they do that primarily through the Lyon College Annual Fund.
