Penn State Greek Week Events Kick Off April 17

Penn State Greek Life will host its annual Greek Week celebration beginning Monday, April 17, through Friday, April 21.

The Panhellenic Council, the Interfraternity Council, The Multicultural Greek Council, and the National Pan-Hellenic Council are collaborating to celebrate the accomplishments of all Greek organizations on campus.

“We hope that all the members from the different councils come out and partake in the events, so they can meet new people and learn from each of the different chapters,” Panhellenic Council Vice President of Programming Catarina Schiff said.

While the events are geared toward Greek Life members, all students are encouraged to celebrate, too.

Informational tables will be set up from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, April 17, at the HUB. Additionally, there will be a free distribution of Greek Week bracelets. Later that evening, from 4 to 7 p.m., there will be a block party on Locust Lane and East Fairmount Ave.

A can-struction food drive will take place between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 18. Donators are encouraged to bring in non-perishable food to Alumni Hall, which will be used to build a fun statue. Proceeds will benefit the Lion’s Pantry. At 3 p.m., Beta Sigma Beta Fraternity is hosting a basketball tournament downtown at 255 East Fairmont Ave. Interested ballers can sign their team up here.

On Wednesday, April 19, there will be a kickball game on Frat Row. All are welcome to attend the game at 5 p.m., and food trucks will be set up for outdoor snacks.

On Thursday, April 20, there will be a pop-up carnival from noon to 4 p.m. on HUB Lawn. Similar to the Blue & White Society’s PSi(Heart)U event, students can get caricatures, jump on inflatables, and munch on carnival food.

“I’ve been planning since January, and I’m super excited to see how it comes together, Panhellenic Council Vice President of Community Development Maddy Lister said. “It’ll be fun.”

To close out Greek Week, there will be a picnic party from 2 to 5 p.m. on Friday, April 21, at HUB Lawn. The picnic will include pizza and snacks, and there will also be tug of war, food-eating contests, and pie-a-face.

More information on Greek Week can be found on various Penn State Greek Life Instagram accounts, including @psugreek_events, @pennstateifc, and @pennstatephc.

“We hope everyone takes advantage of everything we have planned and that everyone knows that they are welcome,” Schiff said.
