Throughout the week of April 3rd to April 10th, the Greek community of George Mason University came together to participate in our annual “Greek Week”. Greek Week is a fun week where the sororities and fraternities at GMU are put into teams to compete all week though various events to raise awareness and money for Habitat for Humanity.
This year, our sisters at Gamma Alpha were paired with Kappa Sigma and Kappa Alpha Order fraternities. Together, we collected over 2,000 canned goods to donate, built an incredible shack, competed in swimming activities and trivia games. As an entire Greek community, we raised over 27,000!
At the end of the week every team performs a Greek Sing that goes with the Greek Week theme. This year the theme was decades, and our team was the 2010's. With the help of the gentlemen in Kappa Sigma and Kappa Alpha Order, our team won the Greek Sing competition and Greek Week overall. Our performance was a satirical take on Saturday night live, and we learned that there is "no time like the present"! It was incredibly rewarding to see that the hours spent practicing for our performance and building the shack paid off. We made history by placing first overall for the performance, as well as Greek Week.
It was a very hectic week for the Greek community; however, the memories made and bonding with the team was invaluable and rewarding. Coming together with all of the other organizations here at Mason reminded us of how much good could be done when we collaborate and work together as Greek life!
