Greek week is a week long competition where members of fraternities and sororities clash for the cause of togetherness.
It brings organizations individually together so they can compete with one another.
“You could just see the energy that the Greeks brought. We came together; Things got a little competitive. It’s incredible to see everyone come together. I love it,” said Sasha Aronzon, the director of Greek week.
Some events that occur during the week are the Olympics, the Greek god and goddess competition, cookies for a cause, letter check, Greek sing, movie night, and award ceremonies. All the organizations enjoy the entire week, but some have certain events that they look forward to.
Meera Ruparelia, a junior in Alpha Xi Delta, said, “My favorite part is definitely Greek god and goddess. I think it’s awesome that each organization gets to pick one person to represent them.”
The week is filled with fun and games that allows the organizations to do the best that they can during the events. Even though the week is full of celebration, one student expressed what Greek week means to him.
Tyler Sewell, a junior in Kappa Delta Rho, said, “It’s a chance for everyone to come together because we don’t see them that much during the school year. It’s the best week, the best time we can raise money for good events like fundraiser and get the word out there about Greek life and how strong we are.”
With all the recent controversies happening with Greek life, Greek week is a positive way to show that all of temple’s Greek organizations stand together.
