Greek Week 2012

It’s that time of year again. … The flowers are blooming, baseball season is in full swing and it’s time for the 2012 GREEK WEEK COMPETITION! UNC-Chapel Hill’s Greek system hosted this year’s third annual, weeklong event, from Sunday, March 18 to Friday, March 23. 

Hosted at numerous colleges around the nation, Greek Week is a series of fun and exciting events that take place in the spring semester, and the money raised from the competition is donated to a different organization each year.

This year, the organization that will be receiving the donation is the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service. Greek Week is the chance for UNC-Chapel Hill’s Greek community to represent the same philanthropy, and to give as much back to the community as possible.

In 2011, the competition was extremely high, and the points were very close.  The Greek Week 2011 Champions were the “X-Men”: Chi Phi, Delta Sigma Iota, Delta Upsilon, Kappa Alpha Order, Kappa Alpha Psi, & Phi Mu.

Greek Week, which began in 2010, has a mission “to unite UNC’s four Greek councils and to promote the Greek community in a positive way.” GAC, IFC, NPHC, and Panhellenic are the four councils that are represented in UNC-Chapel Hill’s Greek system. This event is an excellent and comfortable way to introduce the members of each council to one another and better unite the entire Greek system, instead of being separated by the different councils.

The FIFA World Cup was the theme for this year’s Greek Week competition. Each team, comprised of members from each of the four councils, represented a country that participated in the FIFA World Cup.
