Penn State Greek Life Organizations Show Out For Annual ‘Greek Sing’

After a hiatus due to COVID-19, Greek Sing made its return to Alumni Hall at the HUB on Friday night. Greek fraternities and sororities paired up to compete in a dance competition in an effort to raise money for their philanthropies. This year’s theme was “Dancing Through The Decades,” and each Greek Life group was assigned a decade from the 1920s all the way to today’s hits.

The event was judged by THON 2023 Executive Director Lily Pevoto, Homecoming 2022 Executive Director Tim Nevil, President of the Performing Arts Anna Sulecki, and men’s basketball head coach Micah Shrewsberry.

To start off the night, Gamma Phi Beta, Sigma Sigma Sigma, and Phi Sigma Kappa took the stage to perform a mix of hits from the 90s, including “Cotton Eye Joe” and “I Want It That Way.” Throughout the performance, members of the team did a variety of flips that wowed the crowd.

Up next Delta Zeta, Sigma Kappa, and Theta Chi took the spotlight and performed a very ~groovy~ number with hits from the 70s like “I Will Survive,” “September,” and “Staying Alive.” All of a sudden, the brothers of Theta Chi returned to the stage with umbrellas and started lip-syncing “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls.

Kappa Delta, Phi Psi, and Theta Delta Chi then rocked out to hits from the 50s, including “Jailhouse Rock,” “You’re The One That I Want” from Grease, and “Great Balls of Fire.” Although some of the group took a few tumbles, nothing stopped them from jamming out to each song.

Phi Sigma Sigma, Alpha Xi Delta, and Phi Kappa Theta brought us back to the 2000s with hits from Britney Spears, Destiny’s Child, and the Backstreet Boys. Once “Promiscuous” by Nelly Furtado started playing, the crowd went wild.

Alpha Phi, Beta Sigma Beta, and Pi Beta Phi sang and danced to songs such as, “I’m Good” by Blue, “The Business” by Tiesto, “One Kiss” by Dua Lipa, and “Heat Waves” by Glass Animals. The group even threw around fake money all over the stage, making the crowd go wild, once again.

Alpha Tau Omega, Alpha Omicron Pi, and Phi Sigma Rho joined the stage dressed up as characters from Guardians of the Galaxy and performed songs from the soundtrack, including “Mr. Blue Sky” by Electric Light Orchestra, “Hooked On A Feeling,” and “Come And Get Your Love” by Redbone. Sisters from both sororities then took the stage in colorful boas singing hits from “Mamma Mia.”

Next, Alpha Phi Delta, Delta Gamma, and Sigma Alpha danced through the 1920s dressed as flappers and gangsters.

Following them, Alpha Delta Pi and Phi Kappa Sigma took the crowd back to the 2000s, once again. The team rocked matching pink shirts and performed songs by Shakira, Miley Cyrus, Avril Lavigne, and Justin Bieber.

Kappa Kappa Gamma, Pi Kappa Phi, and Omega Phi Alpha took the stage sporting light-up sunglasses and jerseys. The team performed songs like “Industry Baby” by Lil Nas X, “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars, and “Timber” by Pitbull and Kesha, which definitely hyped up the crowd.

After that, Delta Phi Epsilon, Sigma Delta Tau, and Sigma Pi brought the crowd back to the 90s yet again, performing songs like “No Scrubs” by TLC and “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer. The brothers of Sigma Pi then got in their feels with “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys.

Alpha Epsilon Pi, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Zeta Tau Alpha served as the event’s final performers. Throughout the performance, the team made references to several 80s movies such as “Karate Kid,” “Rocky,” and “Breakfast Club.” The sorority danced to “Girls Just Want To Have Fun,” “Never Gonna Give You Up,” and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” Then, the ghostbusters took the stage with cardboard ghosts surrounding them as they performed the iconic song “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker Jr.

After careful deliberation, the judges crowned Alpha Phi Delta, Delta Gamma, and Sigma Alpha as the winners. Second place went to Delta Zeta, Sigma Kappa, and Theta Chi, with third place going to Alpha Epsilon Pi, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Zeta Tau Alpha.

All teams were rewarded with trophies, however, the winners punched their tickets to perform during THON Weekend along with a pot of money going toward the philanthropy of their choice.
