Sororities and Fraternities battle during Greek Week


Greek Week, a series of annual competitive events between Greeks, will take place on campus next week.

After months of practice and preparation, the Greek organizations are eager to display their talents and fight to be the last organization standing. The theme of this year’s Greek Week is “Survivor,” based on the popular CBS show.

The exciting week of friendly competition will kick off on Sunday, April 1, with the opening ceremony.
Events will begin immediately after the ceremony and continue until Thursday.

There will be a variety of both indoor and outdoor challenges, some of which include tug-of-war, dodge ball, kickball and a timed mile run.

One of the events of this year’s Greek Week is the infamous car pack.

This circus-like event shows just how close sororities and fraternities can be as they quickly compete to have the most brothers or sisters cram into a car.

The week comes to a close with the much anticipated lip-sync competition on Thursday night. The event is fun, exciting and sometimes unpredictable.

This is a great chance for organizations to express their creativity and showcase their unique personalities.


There will be a toy drive taking place throughout the week. All toys will be donated to children with disabilities. Toys can be placed in bins that will be set up in Shippen Hall and in the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life on the third floor of the The Ceddia Union Building.

Will the reigning champions Alpha Phi and Theta Xi be able to defend their title? Students are encouraged to support SU’s Greek community and prepare to watch this action-packed series of events.

Who will be the ultimate survivors?
