Every spring, 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 two main competitions, Greek Spotlight, and Greek Games.
Greek Spotlight is a music and dance-oriented competition where members from each team showcase their skills and performance based on their chosen theme. One portion of the dance features the more skilled dancers and focuses on technique whereas the other portion is less technical and lets more team members participate.
Service Day is also a major part of Greek Week. Each team pairs up with the philanthropy of their choice and helps out in any way that is beneficial to that organization. Last year, sororities and fraternities helped clean up various parks around the greater Lansing and East Lansing areas.
Other events during Greek Week include an annual blood drive, several food fundraising events, volunteering with Fleece and Thank You, and attending the NPHC step show.
Greek Week is a major highlight for Greek life at Michigan State. Members make a positive impact on many different organizations while also making lasting memories. . Last year MSU Greeks raised over $90,000 for local charities!
