Strengthening Greek unity

Katie Popp, Campus Editor March 17, 2024

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater currently houses four Greek councils to represent its various chapters. The Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, the Intercultural Greek Council and National Pan-Hellenic Council consist of countless affiliated students working to make a difference in both their chapters and the Whitewater community.

Homecoming and Greek Week are two of the largest events for the Greek chapters. While Homecoming unites all campus organizations, sports, students, faculty, alumni and the community, Greek Week highlights the Greek unity that exists within the Greek community on campus.

“Being part of Greek life has really helped me gain a different perspective on my college career,” said Drew Beimel, a sophomore math major and member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity. “I did not plan on joining a fraternity when I came to Whitewater, but because I did I have found my closest friends and a community.”

This year, Greek Week ran March 11 through March 15. Members of the Greek community recreated scenes from the “Monsters University” movie throughout various activities during the week, including trivia, hide and seek in Heide Hall and the talent showcase.
