Get Acquainted with Greek Life

Meet the Greeks and Round Robin Took Place for Students Interested in Greek Involvement

greek-lifeMeet the Greeks was held on Tuesday, September 18 at 9:30 pm in the Multipurpose Activity Center.

“Meet the Greeks is a chance for incoming freshmen, transfer students, and people interested in Greek life to come out and get to know the different fraternities and sororities we have on campus,” said Vic Nazario, Vice President of Theta Xi. Meet the Greeks is the first step in joining a fraternity or sorority.

Ten members are selected from the fraternities and sororities to tend the tables. “You pick people that are sociable, people that will go out of their way to get people to come out,” said Nazario. The tables are decorated with the fraternity and sorority letters, slideshows of pictures and banners. The students who are interested in a certain fraternity or sorority have to sign a sheet with their name, student ID number and GPA.

This year was the first time Meet the Greeks was held in the MAC instead of Anacon Hall. “We figured we’d put it here in the MAC instead of our previous spot, Anacon Hall, because of the constraints of Anacon,” said Nazario. “It’s so cramped, we figured we would put it here for potential new members to come and visit the MAC. It’s like a fair. Last year was very constricted. We want to grow it and diversify the community.”

The rain did not stop students from coming out to see the Greek organizations. Students crowded the tables to sign up for the fraternities and sororities.

Slackin’ and Yakin’ with the Outdoors Club

 The Outdoors Club and SGA Host Beach Party


Who says summer has to be over? Not the Outdoors Club that’s for sure. This past Saturday the club hosted one of their largest events this semester down by the Monmouth beach. With upwards of 80 students showing up, the Outdoors Club was able to take advantage of what could have been one of the last nice beach days of the semester.

Outdoors Club president Greg Cenicola and club advisor Professor William Reynolds, along with the help of Megan Mcgowan, Assistant Director of Student Activities, were able to put together a great beach event for students.

The club was provided SGA’s Weekend Warrior grant which aims to keep students around on weekends and to get involved with University sponsored events. SGA’s Weekend Warrior grant provided a bus from campus to the beach which cost $400, but according to Cenicola it did not transport a single student.

The sun was shining and the waves were crashing that Saturday afternoon. The beach was inhabited by upwards of 80 students throughout the day, with a consistent number of about 50 there at all times.

Between contributions from the club and club members there were a total of six single kayaks, two double kayaks, one stand up paddle board, four surfboards and one skim board; all available for use by students.
