Dr. Vanessa Marie Bustamante
The Independent Greek Council nominated their advisor, Dr. Vanessa Bustamante, for her hard work and dedication to the council but also towards the school. From her journey of being a founding member of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. at CSUN, to her role as an advisor to both the Independent Greek Council (IGC) and United Sorority & Fraternity Council (USFC). Her journey also resulted in continuing to be a leader but also pursuing her Ph.D in Higher Education through it all.
Congratulations and thank you for all that you have done!
Thanksgiving Family Adoptions
The thirteen chapters of IGC adopted 19 families to provide Thanksgiving meals for this year in partnership with Unified We Serve. We hope to continue partnering with other campus organizations, and to continue to give back to the communities that have given us so much.

2017 Marilyn Fordham Fraternal Values Award Winner, Alex Soto
IGC Secretary Alex Soto was awarded the Marilyn Fordham Fraternal Values Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize an undergraduate fraternity/sorority chapter or council leader who not only lives the fraternal values, but has incorporated those values into positive change within their organization, the council(s), the fraternity/sorority, multicultural community and/or the campus at large.
We the members of the Independent Greek Council (IGC) at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) recognize a need to unify under-represented Greek organizations with similar goals and purposes while encouraging the values of diversity and inclusion. We strive to increase awareness and promote a positive image of these organizations through the encouragement of community service, philanthropy, and support for high academic standards.
