Becoming an Advisor
With a Greek community that is over 150 years old, we have over 25,000 living Greek alumni who have graduated from Vanderbilt and gone on to excel in politics, business, education, industry & technology, medicine, law, entertainment and sports. Alumni engagement is absolutely critical to the success of the Greek community at Vanderbilt.

This year Greek chapters have been given a specific time block on Friday, September 4, 2013 to host alumni events. We are very excited that we have secured this time block in advance of the class parties for Reunion and hope that you will be able to join us.
