Greek Week News
Every winter, a sorority and one large and small fraternity collaborate to form a Greek Week team. Each team then competes against one another in activities to raise money for specific charities. Teams spend a great deal of time practicing for the four main competitions, MTV night, Battle of the Bands, Songfest and Relay for Life.
MTV Night, Battle of the Bands and Songfest are all music and dance oriented competitions where members from each team showcase their skills and perform based on their chosen theme. MTV Night features the more skilled dancers and focuses on technique. Songfest is also a dance competition but less technical and lets more team members participate.
Relay for Life is a two day event Saturday evening until Sunday morning. The entire Greek Community stays up all night and participaties in numerous activities throughout the night.
Other events during Greek Week include a blood drive and a warm clothing drive.
Greek Week is a major highlight for Greek life at Michigan State. Members make a positive impact on many different organizations.
