Community Service, Friendly Competitions Mark Greek Week 2012

Greek WeekThere’s no better way to express to a college campus the importance of unity than to lead by example with a weeklong unity celebration during Greek Week 2012, from Saturday, April 14 through Friday, April 20 at Ferris State University.

“Greek Week is a way for our Greek community to interact with each other, give back to the community and to promote a positive image of Greek life on campus,” said Danielle Leisner, Greek Student Life coordinator at Ferris.

This year’s Greek Week celebration will incorporate many community service projects and is themed “I Love the ‘90s.”

“The week starts out with chapters participating in The Big Event on Saturday, April 14, and as the week progresses, they will attend the American Red Cross blood drive, build sculptures out of canned-food that will be donated back to a local food pantry, and end the week by supporting Take Back the Night on Thursday, April 19,” Leisner said.

In addition to participating in several community service projects, fraternities and sororities also plan a little fun with the third annual Greek Week Chili Cook-off, a friendly competition of Greek Games and a lip-sync event.

“Greek Week is opened to all Panhellenic Council sororities, Interfraternal Council fraternities and Black Greek Council sororities and fraternities,” Leisner said.

Students who are not Greek are invited to attend Greek Week events.

“If you are thinking about going Greek, this is a great opportunity to see all of our organizations hanging out in a friendly but competitive atmosphere,” Leisner said.
