During the week of Nov. 14-22 UR’s Greek Community will hold the first annual Greek Week. “This event is aimed at allowing non-Greeks on this campus to experience various aspects of Greek life,” junior and Public Relations Chair of the Panhellenic Executive Board Jessica Marabella said.

The week begins with a trip to a Buffalo Sabres hockey game on Friday, Nov. 14.

On Sunday, Nov. 16, the Delta Gamma sorority will hold Anchor Splash, a competition with relay races, synchronized swimming, a raffle and banner and spirit contests. All money raised will be donated to charity.

Thursday, Nov. 20, T.J. Leyden will give a talk called “Turning Away From Hate.” Leyden is a motivational speaker who reformed his life after being a Neo-Nazi activist and recruiter.

“All are encouraged to hear his profound message and inspirational life story,” Marabella said.

The remaining events include Greek Shabbat Friday, a campus clean-up project and Alpha-Traz, a party in the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity house on Saturday.
