Belmont Greek Life hosted its first outdoor Greek Sing on April 24, the first in-person show since Fall of 2019.

Belmont President Dr. Greg Jones and Rev. Susan Jones opened the event with a heartfelt story about the impact of St. Jude and shared a message of encouragement and support for all involved with Greek Sing. Six of Belmont’s eight Greek chapters put on their own unique performances featuring choreographed dances to songs and original lyrics for a crowd of more than 1,500. The event also featured special guest student organizations — The 629 Dance Team and Belmont for St. Jude.

At the close of the event, each group received high praise from the show’s commentators – Dean of Students Dr. Tamika Williams, Assistant Director of Fitness and Recreation and Belmont Greek alumnus Joe Mankowski, St. Jude Development Specialist and Belmont Greek alumna Mare Rote, and BeReal Representative and Belmont Greek alumna Kate Neal. The ultimate highlight of the event, however, came with the presentation of funds raised for St. Jude, presented by members of the Panhellenic Council and members of Belmont for St. Jude – $23,941.
