Greek Week Events Held at Mount Union College
April 08, 2010
Mount Union College held their annual Greek Week festivities October 29 to November 2, naming Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Alpha Epsilon Greek Week 2007 champions.
Members of the Greek community participated in events from community service, Greek sing and an Olympic-style event while being paired with a Greek organization of the opposite sex.
Homecoming weekend kicked off the events with a banner competition. The sororities and fraternities were required to make a banner to be hung on their houses by Friday afternoon to be judged. The winners of the banner competition were the sisters of Delta Sigma Tau and the brothers of Alpha Tau Omega.
On Monday night, the Peterson Fieldhouse was host to the Greek Olympics. The Greek community participated in a tug-of-war, three-legged race, corn-hole, volleyball and a relay event. Each event had their own specific winner; with the overall winners of that competition being Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
Something new was brought to Greek Week on Tuesday night. Members of the Panhellenic Council and Interfraternity Council decided to hold a Greek Jeopardy contest. The winners of Jeopardy were Alpha Delta Pi and the brothers of Sigma Nu. Following jeopardy, a canned food drive was held. Each Greek organization was assigned a dorm to dorm storm and collect canned goods.
Wednesday night brought Dodgeball to the Peterson Fieldhouse. The teams were separated by sexes and the winners of the competition were the sisters of Alpha Chi Omega and the brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Along with the dodgeball competition, a t-shirt design competition was judged, with the winners being Delta Sigma Tau and Alpha Tau Omega.
Greek unity continued to shine at the Greek sing competition. The paired groups were given a genre of music to sample songs from, including rap, pop, country and rock.
The winner of the Greek sing competition was announced at the Greek reception held Friday evening. Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Alpha Epsilon won that event and were announced overall winners of Greek Week 2007.
