Greek Column: Greek Week results

Thank you to the 13 Greek organizations that participated, the IFC and Panhellenic Council members who coordinated and set up events, and everyone else who made this year’s Greek Week so incredibly successful. We raised a lot of money and had a blast while doing it!

The week started off with lawn game Olympics where the participants had to complete tasks such as smearing Vaseline on their faces and covering it with cotton balls, chariot racing on the track with rolling desk chairs and running a seven-legged race across the finish line. The second day was focused on academics and consisted of all-day study hours in Seymour Library. The Greeks who participated logged over 700 hours of studying in the library from open to close. Tuesday was the Greek Trivia contest where the groups had to pass marshmallows using only their feet to their teammates and then answer questions. Wednesday was the Greek Banquet where the IFC and Panhel presidents announced the winners of the yearly 11 awards and the 15 new members inducted in Order or Omega. Finally, Thursday was the last day of Greek Week and it was the talent show. Many Greeks showed actual talent by performing beautiful guitar solos or singing ensembles, whereas the other skits consisted of a different kind of talent and had titles like “The Evolution of Michael Jackson,” “The Snuggie Remix” and “Rad Bromance.” Throughout the week, change wars were held as a philanthropy event to raise money for Safe Harbor. From Sunday to Thursday, the 13 participating organizations raised a total of $388.18.

The following awards were given out at the Greek Banquet along with 15 inductions into Order of Omega:

Outstanding Campus Involvement: Alpha Sigma Alpha

Outstanding Community Service: Beta Theta Pi

Excellence in Risk Management: Sigma Chi

Outstanding Recruitment: Delta Delta Delta

Outstanding Pledge Education Program: Tau Kappa Epsilon

Excellence in Alumni Relations: Delta Delta Delta

Advisor of the Year: Renee Tadie (Kappa Kappa Gamma)

Emerging Male Greek Leader: Zane Franklin (Tau Kappa Epsilon)

Emerging Female Greek Leader: Hannah Basil (Kappa Kappa Gamma)

Thank you to everyone who participated and supported Greek Week this year. We are able to make a generous contribution to Safe Harbor and were able to recognize the outstanding students and organizations that make up our Greek system.
