Connections Magazine


AFLV Connections is AFLV's new online magazine highlighting information, stories, best practices, and news that impact fraternity and sorority students and professionals. The main goal of Connections is to provide members with regular opportunities for development, a connection to AFLV and their peer members, and to provoke thought within members' communities that will enhance their fraternal experience and their leadership roles.



Any person can submit work to Connections as a contributing author. All pieces should be submitted directly to the Connections Editor, Andrea Battaglia, via email for review by the Editorial Board. Several types of articles are welcomed for publication in Connections including feature articles, book reviews, best practices, people spotlights, council highlights, and helpful hints, checklists, and other information to assist in the leadership of any fraternity/sorority community. For more information about being a contributor, view the information below.
