Mizzou Greek Town Serves Columbia, MO
MU’s Greek town was founded in 1899 and today 28 fraternities, 15 sororities and almost 27,000 undergraduate students make up the Greek community. Each year sororities and fraternities come together and participate in numerous philanthropic events. This month the Greeks put on their annual Greek week which kicked off April 8, 2013. Sororities and fraternities were paired together and throughout the week they participated in sports tournaments, the Red Cross blood drive and service projects that fundraised for local Columbia, MO beneficiaries. MU student and Greek member, Dani Wilkerson, said she enjoyed Greek Week because she “was able to meet lots of other Greeks while also serving the Columbia community.” According to Wilkerson Greek Week is a fun and memorable experience that all Greeks look forward to every year.
