Juan Velasquez Tercero of Dalton was one of three inducted as members of Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity Inc. The inductees made history by becoming the first Latino fraternity at the University of North Georgia and the first Greek-lettered fraternal organization on UNG's Gainesville Campus.
Aubrey Frazier, director of fraternity and sorority life at UNG, said this is the first step for fraternity and sorority life on the Gainesville Campus. She hopes it will reignite efforts to establish the fraternity's sister organization, Lambda Theta Alpha Sorority Inc. LTA is currently an interest group with hopes of establishing a chapter soon. In the meantime, Frazier said Lambda Theta Phi may not be the only fraternity on the Gainesville Campus for long.
"We hope to add another fraternity and sorority next year," she said.
