Greek Week Dance Changes

It’s that time of year again. For the past few days, hundreds of Greek affiliated students have been participating in the annual “Greek Week” to show off their chapter spirit. But this year, one major event may serve to be more complicated than expected.

Director of Greek Life, Shana Plasters says, “It’s a lot of fun to see folks interact between organizations. They really get into the eating contest. The Greek Week dance is always a highlight because of the energy and enthusiasm.”

The dance is the culmination of Greek Week where each organization either performs a dance or step routine.

Director of Finance and Administration for Panhellenic Council, Kasey Sullivan says, “All the sororities and fraternities who have competed in the other events during the week are allowed to participate. The whole thing is since everyone really likes the dance you have to participate in the other events in order to compete in the dance component.”

While the groups are putting their final touches on their routines, they are now addressing a new issue for Wednesday’s dance. There is a significant lack of seating in Alumni Gym.

“As many folks may be aware, we are challenged by how many spaces are available in the gym and the size of our Greek community. We have about 2,200 students who are affiliated and the Alumni Gym has about 1,550 flip down seats.” Plasters says.

Plasters says there are more fold-up chairs that will also be used but even with the built-in gym seats, there still may not be enough for all of the students. A limited number of general admission seats will be available for five dollars in Mosley 209 starting the morning of April 16.
