 FSL Hawkeye Service Team (Alternative Spring Break) 

The University of Iowa's Hawkeye Service Teams are supported and coordinated by the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership (CSIL). Our Fraternity & Sorority Life community has sponsored a trip for the past two years to Indianapolis, IN.

During the 2015 ASB we partnered with UI Food For Thought, Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, INC., Mother Hubbard's Cupboard, Indianapolis I-Club (University of Iowa Alumni Organization), Shepherd Center, and Metro Baptist Center. In addition to service, we had the opportunity to visit 3 of the 19 Headquarter Offices in the Indianapolis area including, Delta Upsilon, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Lambda Chi Alpha.   

This opportunity focuses on a social justice, service learning, community building, and a fraternal experience. The Fraternity & Sorority Life trip fosters cross council relationships and encompasses all four of our community pillars, service, scholarship, friendship, and leadership. In addition to an alternative trip, members in an academic credit course, "Alternative Break Service Learning" (LS: 1024:0AAA).  


If you have questions about the trips, please contact Paul Mintner in the Center for Student Involvement & Leadership (paul-mintner@uiowa.edu).

UI Fraternity & Sorority Life Participation in Dance Marathon
Each year, many fraternities and sororities participate in the annual UI Dance Marathon "Big Event." Chapters raise money and dance for 24 hours "For the Kids." Fraternity & Sorority Life leaders can be found on the Executive Team, as Morale/Assistant Morale Captains, and as regular dancers. For the 2014 DM Big Event, UI Fraternity & Sorority Life members raised over $400,000 for the UI Children's Hospitals & Clinics!



Chapter Philanthropy & Community Service 
One of the most unique qualities about Fraternity and Sorority Life is the dedication to service. Within the University of Iowa Fraternity & Sorority Community, each chapter hosts its own philanthropic event to raise money for a specific cause. Not only do these events make a lasting contribution to our community and world, but they are some of the most enjoyable activities in which fraternity and sorority members participate.

Some of the organizations that have benefited from the proceeds of these philanthropic activities and service hours include:

Children's Miracle Network
Speech and Hearing Foundation
Juvenile Diabetes Foundation
American Cancer Society
Make-A-Wish Foundation
Ronald McDonald Foundation
Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation
Special Olympics
Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Johnson County
American Heart Association
Habitat for Humanity
