Florida Gulf Coast University

Greek Excellence Program
The Talon


To identify minimum standards for all fraternities and sororities at Florida Gulf Coast University that will assist chapters in strengthening and enhancing their organizations, members, and the Greek Community as a whole to reach their fullest potential and increase awareness of and interest in Greek life at FGCU.
Talon Recognition

Chapters earning all possible points in any given section (ex. Scholarship) will receive special recognition denoted on their Talon Certificate.

Five Talon Chapter: Any chapter that earns a minimum of 300 points in the Talon Program.

Four Talon Chapter: Minimum of 275 points.

Three Talon Chapter: Minimum of 240 points.

Two Talon Chapter: Minimum of 190 points.

One Talon Chapter: Minimum of 150 points.

These point totals are based on the items that the Talon Committee felt to be appropriate for the various Talon levels. Chapters falling under the category of One Talon or below will be subject to educational improvement measures to correct their deficiencies. The chapter will work with the Office of Student Involvement staff to improve their performance in the upcoming year. Such measures may include but are not limited to: social probation, mandatory service hours, mandatory workshops to attend, reviewing of various chapter programs and policies, and other educational improvement opportunities. Obviously the goal is for every chapter at FGCU to be Five Talon Chapters, so the best of luck to you all.

Talon Binders

All Chapters will submit 3-Ring Binders that will be provided by the Office of Student Involvement.
