The Greek community here at the
The Greek Community also participates in a number of service projects together, such as Feed My Starving Children and YMCA Helpers. Last year, U of M Greek members gave 50,000 hours in community service and raised over $215,000 for philanthropic organizations.
By being a part of the Greek community you can become a leader on many levels. I have held leadership positions within my own chapter and within the Panhellenic Council, the sorority governing body. I also had the opportunity to go with 80 other members of the Greek community to a nationally recognized leadership institute called the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute.
The Greek community also offers resources and support for its members to excel academically. We have study nights at Walter Library, support from our advisers, and academic programming. During finals week, we rent a classroom and bring plenty of food and have a study-a-thon.
Have I mentioned how much fun it is? We participate in numerous campus-wide events. During Homecoming, sororities and fraternities are placed in teams in which we compete in cheer, lip-sync, the parade, and flag football. We also participate in Spring Jam events and have a Greek Weekend in which we have an all-chapter formal, speaker, and service event.
