Meet the Greeks celebrated a second night of virtual events Tuesday, Sept. 29, introducing three organizations — Sigma Gamma Rho, Lambda Theta Phi and Sigma Pi — to the Metropolitan campus.
The sisters of Sigma Gamma Rho, Upsilon Gamma chapter, kicked off the Zoom event, introduced by Rashard Mills, director of Student Life.
Alicia Wilson, chapter president, started the segment with a video of sisters strolling. Wilson shared the chapter’s history and entertained with a Kahoot game of the facts mentioned in the presentation.
The brothers of Lambda Theta Phi, Sigma chapter, followed with an introduction by the chapter advisor. Brothers from other chapters joined in support and discussed what being a Lambda meant to them and the role it played for them. Toward the end of their segment, the Lambdas chanted and encouraged everyone to vote.
The chat box was on fire with encouraging words from the student body and the presenters.
Last were the brothers of Sigma Pi, Epsilon Xi Chapter, who started their presentation with a dance and chanted their slogan. They also introduced their e-board members and briefly discussed their chapter history and the philanthropies they support.
Vice President Brody Smith briefly spoke on behalf of Sigma Pi. He showcased fraternity awards from past years. At the end of the segment, the brothers promoted their upcoming event in October, a virtual Zoom game night.
Last night’s Meet the Greeks showed real life examples of the benefits of networking, learning leadership skills, the values of sisterhood and brotherhood, and ways to get involved on campus through organization activities, etc. As a community in the Metropolitan campus, going Greek can hold a special value by maintaining connections with where it all began.
The Meet the Greeks event continues through Friday, Oct. 2.
