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 was a very windy Friday afternoon this past week as the opening round of the fraternity softball playoffs kicked off. It was a great day for softball regardless of the weather, as three of the four games were decided by one run. The first game was between Sigma Pi and Alpha Sigma Phi. Sigma Pi jumped out early and led practically the entire game, but a late rally with the bases loaded by Alpha Sig won them the game in the final inning by a score of 10-8. The second game of the afternoon was between Sigma Nu and...

It was a great day to be involved in Greek athletics this past Friday. The afternoon featured two semi-final games, a home run derby, and the championship game. The home run derby competition was in honor of Gunnar Sandberg, whose inspirational comeback after being struck in the head by a baseball about a year ago, has impacted many students at Chico State. Next spring, the first annual Gunnar Sandberg award will be given out this event to an inspirational Chico State student.

The blood drive was in the BMU auditorium (as usual) but this year was different. The floor was filled with Greeks wearing their power letters, both as workers for the event and as...
