Greek Week Raises $10,000+ for Rose Park Scholarship Recipients

GreekGames3.jpgBelmont Greek Life recently held another successful Greek Week, resulting in more than $10,000 raised for the Rose Park scholarship recipients. Using the theme of “The Greek Network” to help bring chapters together for the week, the Greek organizations came together to raise money to provide the Rose Park scholarship recipients with laptops, as well as computers for the Easley Community Center and underprivileged high school seniors attending college in the fall.
The chapters also competed in different social networking-related games such as Words with Greeks, Angry Birds and campus morning searches for the Twitter bird and Facebook “f,” and they also attended events such as the Network Launch Party and a Greekwide semi-formal.
Members of Greek Life spent their Saturday connecting with the Nashville community by working either at the Nashville Brush with Kindness Habitat for Humanity build or Family Literacy Day.
The men of Phi Delta Theta emerged victorious at the conclusion of the week as 2011 Greek Week and Greek Sing champions, followed by Alpha Sigma Tau, as Greek Week runners up. Alpha Gamma Delta finished in third place, with a second place win in Greek Sing.
Greek Week was chaired by Alpha Gamma Delta’s Morgan Caldwell, Phi Delta Theta’s Zach Hughes and Phi Mu’s Kelly Redfern, and under their leadership, Belmont Greek Life was successfully able to unite for a week of service, socials and celebration of the achievements of the Greek community.
