Greek Week 2012

    Chapter Information Packet

    Northwestern State University

Dear Chapters,

    We hope that you are as excited as we are for Greek Week 2012 - Paving the Way for Future Greeks! This week will showcase how great being a Greek can be! The week‟s

    events will begin with a relaxed Bar-B-Q on Sunday and end with Powerade Pong on Wednesday. This year we want to have a strong focus on reminding the community that we are not only social organizations, but service oriented as well. In doing so, we hope that future Greeks will not be faced with the same stigmas that the community often associates with Greek Life. As always, our ultimate goal for Greek Week is to promote stronger inter-fraternal relations. To encourage these relationships, this year's Greek Week will include teams comprised of chapters from all Greek councils.

This year‟s philanthropic focus will be the St. Judes Children‟s Research Hospital and

    Demons Unite to Fight, a new organization coming to campus next fall. St. Judes serves as several of the fraternity and sorority member‟s philanthropies on campus, as well as

    a key focus for Northwestern State‟s annual program Up „Til Dawn. We will be hosting a 5K Marathon in support of St. Judes, and a registration fee will be collected for a donation to help defer the cost of cancer treatments for children. Demons Unite to Fight is an organization that will be arriving next fall and will focus on bringing awareness to many different illnesses. This semester the organization has chosen to focus on breast cancer awareness. Being that the Greek community has such an influence on campus, we will work with this new organization to help them prosper so that they may begin to bring awareness to the surrounding community.

    This packet contains all pertinent information for Greek Week 2012. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Chase Harvey or myself at the addresses found below. There will also be a preliminary meeting March 20, 2012 in the Student Union Conference Room 221 to answer any questions. You are responsible for reading the packet in its entirety, so please read this packet carefully so that there are no misunderstandings and everyone is able to participate in all of the events. Greek Week 2012 will only be as successful as all of us want it to be! Let us all do our best to make this an amazing week!

    Greek Week is designed to bring about unity throughout the Northwestern State University Greek community. All of the events have been planned to cater to all Greek members and appeal to each chapter‟s interests. The week is created not only as time for brothers and sisters to spend more time together, but to also forge new friendships amongst Greek members. Greek Week seeks to instill the importance of not only being a member of a respective chapter, but also a member of our Greek community.
