On Thursday, March 14, CNU’s Greek community, including the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and gathered together in Diamonstein Concert Hall in the Ferguson Center for the Arts to celebrate these achievements in 2018.
To determine this year’s winners, 15 professionals from across the country were consulted.
