Greeks Give Back on Halloween

While the rest of us try to sleep off our Halloween hangovers (from all the sugar, that is), the Greek community will take to the streets Sunday morning for the first Greek Sweep to ever be held in the fall semester.

Interfraternity Council President Max Wendkos said that, between Halloween and the Michigan game, they couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to hold a Greek Sweep.

In addition, the first annual Greek-or-Treat event will be held from 3-6 p.m. Sunday afternoon, aimed towards children in the State College community.

“We’ll be handing out candy, playing games, carving pumpkins, and there will even be a haunted house.  There will be a trolley taking the kids and their parents around to the different destinations and we’ll have walking guides as well. The Interfraternity Council Vice President for Programming, Christian Van Horn, has done an absolutely amazing job publicizing the event, so we’re hoping that we’ll get a good turn out and put a bunch of smiles on these kids’ faces,” said Wendkos.

Sounds like fun. Can we come, too?
