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.

Alpha Sigma Phi Winners of Diamonds are Forever

Thursday the 21st of April was the final conclusion of the Diamond days philanthropic events when the 1st place winners of Diamond Days (Alpha Sigma Phi) where granted a social with Alpha Delta Pi .   The theme for the dance was “The Game of Life” as in the board game, that most of us played while having no idea how hard it was to actually is pay off the college loans that you got on life cards. The costumes where great and Alpha Sigma Phi could not help but to sing a few songs while preparing to go to...

Alpha Sigma Phi held their first Black & White formal this past weekend at Studio One Ballroom in downtown Chico. The Alpha Sig’s were fortunate enough to use this nice brand new venue that is located on Wall Street.

Alpha Delta Pi Initiation Chico State

The new members of Alpha Delta Pi could not have been more excited about initiation week. The week started off with Black Diamond Ceremony and the Alphas gave their pledge pins back in exchange for their official badge.

Larry Bassow Fundraiser Chico State

The Greek Community at Chico State has made tremendous progress in the past five years, and much of that growth and development has been due to the constant hard work of Greek Life Advisor Larry Bassow. As an alumni of a Greek chapter at Chico, Larry has devoted his time and energy into truly helping students learn and take advantage of all that Greek Life has to offer them. That is why when Larry was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer this year, the entire Greek Community rallied to help him in any way they could.

Theta Chi Banner - 4 Greeks and Dragon Graphics

Every semester, the brothers of Theta Chi Fraternity devote a week of bonding with one another through competition called Red & White Week. The brothers are divided evenly into a Red Team (Team Freeman) and a White Team (Team Chase) named after Fredrick Norton Freeman and Arthur Samuel Chase, the founders of Theta Chi Fraternity. The teams could be distinguished by red and white tank tops made by 4 Greeks that the brothers sported all week long. Each day of the brotherhood, an event was held in which the two teams would compete against each other. On Monday the brothers...

Theta Chi Formal Chico State

Theta Chi celebrated the initiation of another pledge class by having their annual formal at Lakeland Village in South Shore, Tahoe. The highly anticipated event lived up to expectations and perhaps exceeded them.

This past weekend, April 15th-16th, 12 men were initiated into Alpha Sigma Phi. These new brothers make up Alpha Sigma Phi’s Delta class, and now puts the fraternity at 61 members! During the pledge process, these men successfully put on a canned food drive benefiting the Torres Shelter, as well as a book drive benefiting Citrus Elementary. They have all worked very hard, and Alpha Sigma Phi couldn’t be more excited and proud of their new brothers. Congrats Delta Class!

Many Greeks here at Chico State are active members of their chapters and the campus community, all while achieving elevated Grade Point Averages (GPAs).  That is exactly what Order of Omegais for.  Order of Omega is a leadership honor society for members of Greek organizations.  The requirements for membership include 60 completed units of coursework and a minimum of a 2.75 cumulative GPA.

This past week was Gamma Phi Beta’s I-week, and my pledge class’s initiation. We had an extremely busy week, but at the end it was all so much fun and worth everything. On Monday night we all got together to show each other how much we’ve all bonded and how much we love each other. Wednesday we all met up at the Gamma Phi house to present our Bigs with a decorated paddle we had all customized just for them.

This past weekend Gamma Phi Beta had their 2011 retreat at South Lake Tahoe. The girls enjoyed a beautiful drive with a little rain toward the last few miles. Once the girls arrived at the hotel, they immediately starting bonding. They sat at tables and ate candy while writing little notes to each other. As the night went on, the Gamma Phi’s learned more and more about each other. The evening started out with

Theta Chi T-shirt Dance

On March 10, 2011 Theta Chi appropriately ended school on a high note with a Mardi Gras grab-a-date social before everyone went their separate ways for Spring Break. Fittingly, the couples were seen supporting a variety of bright colored beads and clothing throughout the night. The shirts were made through 4-Greeks and couldn’t have turned out better! The front of the shirt said “DANCE MARDI GRAS” and sported a crown along with beads and streamers. The back of the shirts said “Throwing More Than a Party.” The event was held at Peeking Restaurant and was overall a resounding success for all...

All college students at one time will find themselves in the same boat. They are searching for what defines them, which major they should get a degree in, and how to set themselves up for success after graduating. One thing that is commonly overlooked about fraternities is the opportunities that are open to you after you become a member. Much of the focus on fraternity life is negative. This is mostly because when bad things happen they will always take precedence in the media before the philanthropy, community service, and brotherhood aspects of the organization. When joining a fraternity, your...
