Purpose & Overview:
The Purpose of the ALPHA program is to encourage the Mines Greek Community to achieve higher standards which showcase a positive image, successful operations and management, and chapter achievements.  The ALPHA program is a collection of standards that chapters are encouraged to accomplish in five key categories.  Chapters will earn a star for each category in which the established requirements are accomplished.  A total of five stars may be earned by each chapter (one star may be earned in each category).  Chapters that obtain a star in all five categories will achieve ALPHA status.  ALPHA status chapters will be eligible for a set of incentive rewards determined on an annual basis.  The program will be administered on an academic year basis, running from August to May of each year.  Chapters will be publicly recognized for their acheivement at the Student Organization Awards and Recognition (SOAR) Banquet at the end of the Spring Semester.
