Greek Week – Chico State

Greek Week has finally come to an end.
I love the 90s Greekelodeon brought together Greek organizations in order to raise money for Habitat for Humanity and Boys and Girls Club.
The week began with the Parade of Lights, which is a parade that goes through downtown Chico. Team Are You Afraid of the Dark won with their spooky float covered with zombies, lit up letters and a haunted house.
The blood drive on Monday and Tuesday was a huge success. Alpha Gamma Delta had more than 80 people donate their blood and other chapters were not too far behind.
The Woodstock’s fundraiser raised even more money for the Boys and Girls Club and Habitat for Humanity. Banners of each team were on display in the restaurant and Sigma Kappa, Alpha Sigma Phi, Sigma Pi and Upsilon Kappa Delta took first place for their intricate Are You Afraid of the Dark poster.
Greeks got a break from the competition by coming together to watch Night At the Roxbury on Wednesday and sharing a good laugh.
It was back to competition the next few days with slime time live, Greek Olympics and dodgeball. Team Rugrats took home first place for dodgeball since their teams accumulated the most points overall.
Greekolodeon ended with the talent show on Sunday, which gave each chapter an opportunity to showcase their talents and funny nature. Sigma Kappa, Pi Kappa Alpha and Lambda Theta Nu won the overall talent awards. Team Are You Afraid of the Dark cheered in victory as the announcers deemed them the winners of the entire Greek week.
4-Greeks would like to congratulate all of the Greeks for their hard work especially with the Habitat for Humanity builds, Boys and Girls Club clean ups and dedicating their entire week to raise money for these two local philanthropies.
