Make way for the Greeks

After finishing up Greek Week, Greek organizations are holding their spring philanthropy events

By on April 9, 2019

The most anticipated week of the school year for Greek life just finished up with Alpha Delta Pi and Delta Upsilon winning it all. Sororities and fraternities battled it out on March 31-April 6 in teams, with each pair representing a genre of music, through activities that happened each day. The week started off with Greek trivia and wrapped up with the Big Event, where attendance was accounted for in order to gain more points. Big events, including Greek God and Goddess and Lip Sync that gain university-wide attention, happened as well throughout the week.
