This past Monday marked the start of a tradition that has existed within the Greek Community for years, Greek Week. Every year in the spring the school’s fraternities and sororities face off in a number of different events. Greek Week is a time when one’s pride in one’s fraternity or sorority is at its peak. Each group gets to showcase its athletic prowess – or lack thereof – in a winner-take-all tournament style competition. The main events are football, basketball, soccer, floor hockey and volleyball. While each organization strives to come out on top in each sport and win the coveted title of “Greek Week Champions,” what’s more important is the unity that this week inspires for all Greeks. Win, lose or draw, each fraternity and sorority throws aside any differences and enjoy the games as compatriots and not as rivals. This year the Fraternity President’s Council decided to bring back a lost Greek Week tradition. Jay Kulesa, FPC Programming and Greek Week Chairman, has purchased a trophy that will be awarded to the fraternity that places first overall in Greek Week. The fraternity’s name will be engraved on the trophy and displayed in Wilson Commons, and every subsequent year the Greek Week champions will have their fraternity placed on the trophy. The trophy will be awarded to the winner this Sunday during the Greek Week BBQ on the Fraternity Quad, which will include a stickball tournament and keg toss.Last night, Sigma Delta Tau sorority and Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity co-sponsored an event to raise money for Prevent Child Abuse America. The event took place at the Community Living Center on the Fraternity Quad, where members of both groups served all-you-can-eat pancakes for a five-dollar donation. Through their combined efforts, SDT and SAM were able to raise over $500 for the laudable cause.Got a question about Greek life? Send it to
