Message from the Council President
My name is Aracelis Figueroa and I am President of the Intercultural Greek Council (IGC). I’m so excited to finally be able to lead my council and work towards our common goals by leveraging our respective strengths. I am a Management Information Systems major, with a double minor in Human Development Family Studies and Crime & Justice. I am a proud Hermana of Sigma Lambda Upsilon/Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc. As council President, I want IGC to work for us as opposed to the other way around. With the unprecedented circumstances, we have faced many obstacles and our council will not be another. I want to continue to hone in our unique traditions, talents, and efforts. I will create opportunities for us to have the critical discussions that will showcase our distinct differences and collective similarities. There’s no cap to how much our celebration of cultures can positively impact those who wish to join our council and break the glass ceiling for those who are current members. We will continue the IGC legacy of capitalizing on our intercultural identities and creating leaders that serve our own community. To those interested in Greek life, please know that you do not have to be part of a specific ethnic group to join our organizations. Diversity is the key to our collective success. I look forward to working with you all.
