Greek Week starts Monday
Every year, Greek Week includes a philanthropic event. This year, chapters will participate in the Relay for Life to be held on the USI campus on Saturday, March 28. Greek Week kicks off on Monday with a basketball tournament at 9 p.m. on the Recreation and Fitness Center outdoor courts. On Tuesday, fraternities will participate in “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, the Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence," and chapters will compete in bowling and euchre tournaments at Franklin Lanes. The annual Greek Dance Competition will be held Wednesday at 9 p.m. in Mitchell Auditorium. On Thursday, Greeks will show their appreciation for faculty and staff by delivering treats to the colleges.
Greek Week culminates on Sunday with the Greek Olympics, including a relay race, “climb to Olympus” (pyramid), “chariot” race, tug of war, quiz bowl, and “Greek Squeeze” – in which as many members as possible will try to pile into a car in an event reminiscent of the 1960s. The Greek Awards, recognizing the chapters that win Greek Week, the Greek Olympics, and other awards, will be held at 7:30 p.m. that evening in Carter Hall.
USI has six fraternities and four sororities. The Interfraternity Council includes Alpha Sigma Phi, Kappa Alpha Order, Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Delta Theta, Sigma Pi, and Tau Kappa Epsilon. The Panhellenic Council includes Alpha Sigma Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Delta Zeta, and Gamma Phi Beta.
