Delta Zeta, Phi Sigma Kappa lip sync their way to victory

By LYDIA ELMY 4/17/24

Memorial Auditorium was filled with Greeks Thursday night as the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life held its annual lip sync competition, the conclusion of Greek Week 2024. 

The high-energy event drew a full house with music playing as students took their seats. The competition began with Phi Sigma Kappa taking the stage, dressed in jerseys and drawing excited audience feedback with cheers and applause.

Throughout the night, several fraternities and sororities lip-synced to various songs, each dressed in different costumes and outfits to represent their themes. Each fraternity and sorority represented a different decade, as this year’s Greek Week was decade themed. Each performance prompted copious amounts of cheers from the rowdy audience. 

Some even incorporated movie scenes and quotes from their decade into their performances, such as Alpha Phi using a scene from the 2001 movie “Legally Blonde.”

Other fraternities and sororities that performed included Kappa Beta, Phi Sigma Kappa, Alpha Omicron Pi, Delta Zeta, Phi Delta Theta, Kappa Beta Gamma, Theta Xi, Phi Sigma Sigma and Pi Lambda Phi. 

At the end of the event, the Greek Week Committee took to the stage to announce the closing ceremony of Greek Week. The judges of the competition began deliberations for the winners.

With an eager audience, the top three for both sororities and fraternities were announced. For the sororities, Delta Zeta claimed first place with 230 points, followed by Kappa Beta Gamma and Alpha Phi.

For the fraternities, Phi Sigma Kappa took home first place with 250 points, followed by a tie between Kapa Sigma and Theta Xi for second place and Pi Lambda Phi for third place.

Points were awarded throughout the week by completing a variety of activities, such as a medallion hunt, trivia and fundraising.
