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 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.
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.

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.
