  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Union Oval hosts fifth annual Greek Carnival today

For the 88 percent of students at the University who aren’t members of a Greek organization, their questions about Greek life will soon be answered.

The fifth annual Greek Carnival, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m today in the Union Oval, is hosted by the Greek councils and is sponsored by Greek Affairs.

Each of the 42 fraternities and sororities on campus will have booths set up with information about their organizations.

“We’re expecting participation from all four councils and each chapter within that council,” said Karri Moore, coordinator for Greek Affairs.

There will be five new chapters this year, giving students more options to choose from.

“Hopefully, chapters will be more willing to be open as far as talking with students, besides, there’ll be some refreshments there, so people should come out,” said Leo Svodoba, Recruiting Director of IFC.

The new chapters include Alpha Phi Omega, Delta Xi Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Omega Phi Alpha and Alpha Kappa Delta.

The Greek Carnival still intends to attract more students into crossing over to Greek Life.

“I went Greek because it’s a great place to be and I feel a strong bond with my fraternity. I want to give that same opportunity to other people,” Svodoba said.

To go along with Greek Carnival is a recruitment session for those interested in Panhellenic sororities, taking place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday in the lawn outside of McDonald Hall.

In the event of inclement weather, the carnival will be moved to Olscamp 101.

“One thing that really appealed to me about Greek was the unity amongst the sorority,” said Tierney Grayson, president of National Pan-Hellenic Council.

About 6,000 to 8,000 students are expected to attend the carnival, according to Grayson.

“I’m expecting an overall amount of people, due to the bigger freshmen class,” she said. “It should be a nice crowd.”
