Georgia College Fraternity and Sorority Life to Host Greek Weekend

Greek Weekend, a competition among organizations of the Greek life at GC, will transpire April 6–9 at various venues around campus.

During these four days, members of each organization will compete and showcase their talents in athletics, academics, and philanthropy.

“Greek Week creates excitement and community on campus” said Ashton Serff, President of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, “Every year, members work together and support one another in order to represent and show our passion for our sorority.”

Events will kick off Thursday with Family Fued at 6 p.m., an ice cream social at 7:30, and will be wrapped up with Basketball starting at 8.

Friday will have an earlier start, with a food can serve-a-thon lasting from 8 a.m. until noon. After that, the Decathlon will start at 1 p.m., followed by tug at 3.

Moving to the weekend, dodgeball and flag football will be played Saturday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. respectively. Greek God/Goddess will take up most of Saturday night, starting at 6 p.m.

Zack Case, the president of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, noted that Saturday is a big day for the fraternities to compete athletically. “Recsports stopped having a fraternity-only division in our intramural seasons so its fun to get to compete against each other in front of the entire Greek community.”

“A lot of us are friends outside of our different fraternities, which makes it much more fun when we get to play each other for bragging rights”, added Brannon Wilson, a member of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity

To wrap up the event, the Greek Sing/Step competition will take place Sunday evening. For Greek Sing, a fraternity and sorority are paired together and will perform a dance routine. Immediately after, the sororities will compete against each other in Greek Step/Stroll, where each sorority will perform a step routine.

“Greek Step is not only just a way for some of us to show off our athleticism, but also allows us to reward ourselves from the long hours we have put into perfecting our routine”, said Tessa Bradbury, a member of the Phi Mu step team.
