After a four-year hiatus, 2023 saw the return of SLU hosting Greek Week. The Order of Omega, an organization comprising the best of Greek life at SLU, hosted the event.

The Greek organizations at SLU split into four groups for a weeklong competition meant to bring the Greek community together and promote camaraderie. The teams were organized as follows:

  • Team 1: Alpha Omicron Pi, Kappa Alpha Psi, Sigma Gamma Rho, Tau Kappa Epsilon and Theta Chi.
  • Team 2: Alpha Sigma Tau, Kappa Sigma, Omega Psi Phi and Zeta Phi Beta.
  • Team 3: Delta Sigma Theta, Delta Tau Delta, Sigma Sigma Sigma and Theta Phi Alpha.
  • Team 4: Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Phi Alpha, Phi Mu and Sigma Tau Gamma.

The events kicked off on Saturday, March 25 with The Big Event, hosted by the Student Government Association (SGA). The Big Event is the university’s largest yearly community service event in which hundreds of students from different organizations go around Hammond to give back to the community. 

Sunday, March 26 the Greeks participated in a field day of sports tournaments in the Kinesiology and Health Sciences Building’s gymnasium. The teams played dodgeball, volleyball, and ships and sailors. Team three triumphed in both dodgeball and volleyball, while team four’s Phi Mu Fraternity took home the win in ships and sailors.
