Greek Week is set to begin April 23-29, and will be full of events for the multitude of Greek students.

"Greek Week is basically a week-long program that we do every spring with all our Greek chapters," Remington Jackson, president of Panhellenic Council, said. "It is a week that we promote Greek unity through friendly competition and fundraising."

Greek week is only for Greek chapters.

"There are events such as Greek Sing that students can come and observe," Jackson said.

Every day during Greek Week will host different events.

"We start the week off with a rib cook off on Sunday, then we host a talent show, along with a flag football competition," Jackson said.

However, the most famous event is Greek Sing.

"We always have Greek Sing, which is one of our biggest events," Jackson said. "It is kind of like the Step Show, but more lip-syncing."

When students were asked what their favorite event was during Greek Week, they usually said it was Greek Sing.

"My personal favorite would be Greek Sing," sophomore member of Kappa Sigma Wyatt Ferguson said. "Each performance can either be hilarious or very impressive."

Being a Greek, this week is a great time to come together.

Ferguson said the chapters have the opportunity to meet other Greeks that they haven’t worked with already.

The Greek community sets the whole week up.

"Greek Week provides the opportunity to have fun and live out values that represent all of our organizations, such as involvement, brotherhood/sisterhood and service," Jackson said.

Even if students are not members of the Greek chapters, they can still go see the events as they take place.

"Although events are primarily for the unification of Greek, non-Greek students are encouraged to attend to learn what Greek Life is all about."
