Greeks Staying Busy in April

VALDOSTA -- Valdosta State University’s Greek Week is upon us and Greek Life is hosting various activities on campus and at different locations in the community.

Greek Week events include relay races on the front lawn, bowling, trivia, a cookout, basketball, softball and a ropes course. Throughout the week, which ends Sunday, April 10, all Greek-letter organizations will have the opportunity to compete against one another during different competitions.

"I am excited about Greek Week and I look forward to seeing everyone unite,” said Michael Polite, president of Interfraternity Council (IFC). “I believe the changes to Greek Week this year will be a lot of fun and will bring everyone together."

The fun will not end as Greek Week comes to a close. The College Panhellenic Council will host its annual CPC step show Tuesday, April 12, in the P.E. complex from 7 to 10 p.m. This event is open to all VSU students with a $5 admission fee. All proceeds will benefit The Partnership Cancer Fund.

On April 17, the Greek Assembly ceremony will highlight academic excellence, community service and philanthropic activities, chapter development and reporting, and campus involvement and leadership among the Greek organizations.

Greek organizations on campus are also participating in Relay for Life and various Sexual Assault Awareness Month events such as Take Back the Night.
