You Know It’s Greek Week When…

Greeks are always babbling on about how awesome it is to be affiliated no matter what time of year it is, but this week is Greek Week here in Happy Valley, which means you’re going to be seeing even more letters than usual. But that’s not the only tell-tale sign. You know it’s Greek Week when:

  • There are actually people in the fabric section of Wal-Mart. If you get there at the beginning of the week, you can snag that coveted pastel colored fabric you’ve been pining for all semester. If not, you’ll probably end up with something less “cute”, and attempt to be ironic with some ugly print. Speaking of togas…
  • Everyone in Indigo is wearing a Toga. On Thursday, it’s toga night at Indigo, which will make it that much easier to tell who’s greek and who’s not. But then again, isn’t it usually pretty obvious? There are other Greek Night Out events this week, including the Phyrst Jam Sesh tonight and Levels Silent Disco DJ Battle on Wednesday.
  • There is a big crowd at a Baseball game. On Wednesday at 6 pm, Greeks will invade Medlar Field to cheer on the baseball team as they play against Bucknell. Because honestly, who even goes to Penn State baseball games, AMIRIGHT?
  • There’s a chariot race. I’m not even really sure what this is all about. It’s fun I guess. It’s also terrifying for the people in the chariot (or the sad excuse for a chariot, anyway) which is funny to watch.
  • There are more walk of shames than usual. Greek Week is a weeklong, which means that frats and soror’s have socials Tuesday-Saturday this week, which will result in more chicks walking down Garner with heels in hand and smeared mascara all over their face every morning. If you’re not early enough to catch it, it will probably be documented on Instagram anyway.
