Greek Week Preview – Chico State
Posted by Luke Minton on Sunday, October 30th, 2011 at 12:22 pm
It’s that time of year again. The time when can you spot lit-up floats, donate to blood drives, get involved in community clean-ups, and are absolutely inundated with all those Greek letters. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s Greek Week!
This year, the theme is “I Love the 90s: Greekolodeon” and all the sororities and fraternities are divided into teams named after old nickelodeon shows, like “Rugrats” and “Rocket Power.” While they’re all competing against each other to raise money for Habitat for Humanity and Boys and Girls Club, the focus for this year’s Greek Week is unity. It can be difficult to achieve at times, but from October 7th to the 15th, all of the members of the Greek system will be working together and sporting their matching Greek Week shirts while they do it.
The entire week is going to be filled with fun activities, charity events, and friendly competition. There will be a kick-off party at 33 Steaks and Booze on Friday, October 7th, the Habitat for Humanity build the following day, a movie night, Boys and Girls Club Clean-up on the 13th, and Greek Olympics the next day on Shasta and Lassen lawns. There’s even going to be a talent show, and who wouldn’t want to see a bunch of sorority girls in Rugrats diapers?
So when you see a mob of Greeks donating blood in the BMU on October 10th, eating pizza for the Woodstock’s fundraiser the next night, or partaking in Slime Time Live on the 13th, jump right in and participate. Help the Greek system represent Chico State well, and show our community that we care.
