Students enjoyed food, games and inflatables, Sunday afternoon, at Chico State’s annual Bidwell Bash.

The event, hosted by Chico State Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, gave students the opportunity to talk to over a dozen different Greek organizations while enjoying One-Mile Park on Labor Weekend.

The event also included food from Madison Bear Garden as well as games and rentable floaties which students used at Sycamore Pool.

Students also had the option of playing on a variety of inflatable jumpies which included obstacle courses and a velcro wall.

Alex Rangel, a member of Epsilon Sigma Rho, battled against the common misconception that Greek life is only about partying.

“Our organization, in general, stands for education, strength and respect,” Rangel said. “The education aspect is a checks and balances for each other just to make sure we all reach our ultimate goal of graduating because that’s what we came here for, first and foremost.”

Epsilon Sigma Rho members have given back to the community by volunteering at walks for prostate cancer and autism in addition to supplying school supplies to families in need.

Greek life not only helps out the community but its members as well.

“We’re also a professional sorority so we build the women that join, into professionals,” said Julie Kimmerle, a member of Sigma Alpha, an agriculture sorority.

“We do professional developing events whether it’s working on interviewing skills or going and touring farms,” added Allyah Perez, a fellow Sigma Alpha sister.
