Gainesville Campus welcomes Latin Fraternity, Lambda Theta Phi

Students Roel Aguilar, Carlos Garcia and Juan Velasquez have established a chapter of Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity Inc., at UNG’s Gainesville Campus.

The organization is the first fraternity at the Gainesville Campus, where 22% of the student population identifies as Hispanic. It is also the first Latin organization in UNG’s fraternity and sorority community. Dr. James Conneely, vice president for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, is looking forward to the partnership.

“The University of North Georgia’s vision to ‘be a regional and national leader for academic excellence, engagement, educational opportunity, and leadership development’ aligns seamlessly with Lambda Theta Phi’s vision ‘to be the acknowledged leader and ultimate Latino fraternity in helping our members succeed … and to lead by example,’” he said. “We are confident that this historical partnership to bring the first Latin fraternity and Greeklettered organization to the Gainesville Campus will be monumental.”
