Every fall Greek life on campus dedicates a week to raising money for various charities. This year over $31,000 was raised for donations.

Greek Week stats:

– 667 pints of blood donated

– 2,500 non-perishable foods to Wildcat Food Pantry & Jesus Center

– $1,350 for a local charity

– over $31,400 for the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research

Senior public relations major and a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority Julie Cogert spoke about the involvement of a majority of the chapters on campus for Greek Week.

“Participation is a choice but a majority of people do understand the importance of Greek Week and are willing to put in the effort,” she said.

For Cogert, Greek Week is about “putting differences aside to come together for the greater good of the community.”
