C-SC Greek Week plans for fun and philanthropy
Thursday, March 17, 2011
CANTON, Mo. – Culver-Stockton College Greeks will be participating in a week full of games, entertainment and philanthropy events Sunday, March 27 through Sunday, April 3. Greek Week is an annual event that encourages unity along with some playful competition among the Greek chapter houses.
C-SC is home to eight national fraternities and sororities: Alpha Tau Omega, Chi Omega, Kappa Alpha Psi, Delta Upsilon, Lambda Chi Alpha, Sigma Kappa, Sigma Sigma Sigma and Tau Kappa Epsilon. Chapters will compete and earn points throughout the week. Points can be earned through raising money for philanthropies, winning themed game and entertainment competitions; participation points are also awarded.
This year’s theme is “MTV – You’ll never look at Greeks the same way again.” The slogan was selected to reflect how Greek life is changing at Culver-Stockton. Greek Week organizers say chapters are working harder than ever to emphasize their rituals and fraternal values in their daily lives.
"This looks to be the best Greek Week seen on C-SC’s campus,” says Greek Week 2011 Advisor and Interim Dean of Student Life Bob Dudolski. "This will definitely be a fun and exciting week for our campus, and I look forward to inviting all of the non-Greek students to come out and see these great events!"
One of the most anticipated events of the week is “A Mile in Her Shoes,” taking place Tuesday, March 29. “A Mile in Her Shoes” is a community service event to raise money for an all-Greek philanthropy. Each Greek man finds a Greek woman to sponsor them by pledging a specific dollar amount. For their part, the men wear high heel shoes to complete their one mile walk.
The Greek Week steering committee consists of co-chairs Maddie Person, junior business major from Belton, Mo.; and Samantha Kheim, senior arts management major from St. Charles, Mo.; the chapter communications chair is Santana Donelson, sophomore nursing major from Hannibal, Mo.; the points and rules chair is Dakota McKee, junior theatre major from Pittsfield, Ill.; games chair is Andrew Redmon, junior communications major from Canton, Mo.; the public relations chair is Dakotah Jorgensen, sophomore psychology major from Canton, Mo.; entertainment events are chaired by Patrick Wilson, freshman music education major from St. Peterse, Mo.; and assistant Autumn Whitmore, freshman biology/pre-med major from St. Charles, Mo.; the community service chair is Jill Akright, freshman nursing major; fundraising chair Rylan Swank, freshman religion/philosophy major from St. Joseph, Mo.; unity chair Holly Wilcox, freshman biology major from Magnolia, Texas. Advisors to the committee are Culver-Stockton Interim Dean of Student Life Bob Dudolski and Greek Life Area Coordinator Joe Stubbs.
