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.

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.”

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...

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.

Alpha Sigma Phi Chico State Paintball Video from 4-Greeks on Vimeo. Last Saturday Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity went on a brotherhood outing to the Oroville Paintball Combat Zone. The brothers used the war games to work on their team building skills by using effective communication to work together to accomplish their objectives in the best way possible. The general consensus from the brothers was nothing helps you get to know someone more than when you are pinned down together behind a dirt mound with paint balls flying over your head. Alpha Sigma Phi was the largest group out on the...

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...
