Greek Life

Love is in the air with Valentine’s Day coming up! The ladies of Phi Mu will be holding their annual Kissing Booth on Thursday, February 14th in the DSU from 11-1pm. In exchange for donations, Hershey kisses will be given out. The donations go to their philanthropy, Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughter.

Alpha Phi will also be tapping into the Valentine’s Day spirit by selling pink, red, and white carnations from 11-2pm in the breezeway. Proceeds will go to the Alpha Phi Foundation, which supports sisters in need.

One of Alpha Phi’s biggest events of the semester, King of Hearths, is approaching fast on February 19th in the ballroom at 7 p.m. The event is broken down into three sections. First the contestants dress up as a celebrity and act out something funny. Secondly, they must eat three red velvet cupcakes as fast as they can and then explain how they would wine and dine a lady. The last portion is cardiac trivia, which the contestants will have to know essential facts regarding women’s heart health and cardiac care.

Senior Trey Reed will represent the women of Gamma Phi Beta. “I am really excited to not only represent GPhi and but also support the ladies of Alpha Phi and all those affected by heart disease.”  CNU gentlemen will also represent other campus organizations and sororities such as ASA, Phi Mu, ZTA, Psi U, KDR, and Sig Ep.

The 9th annual Greek Auction will take place on the ballroom on February 26th hosted by Phi Mu. The sisters are busy crafting and preparing numerous items for other Greek organizations such as blankets, shirts, letters, baskets, cups, coolers, koozies, and jewelry. This is one of the biggest, most anticipated events on campus for the Greek community. Make sure to save up in time and bring your cash and check books for support the Phi Mu foundation.

The Pink Out Women’s basketball will take place during their schedule game against Mary Baldwin College at 530 p.m on Feb. 13th. The ladies of Zeta Tau Alpha will be there passing out pink ribbons, selling raffle tickets for a pink basketball signed by the players and other pink gear and goodies. The players also wear pink t-shirts.

Raising breast cancer awareness and education is ZTA’s philanthropy and the organization hosts many events throughout the year to help support breast cancer awareness, including a Pink Out football game in the fall.

“I love the pink out games because we get to reach out to a whole new dynamic of both CNU students, athletes and parents. We get to spread our message of breast cancer awareness and education through one of the most exciting sports at CNU!”, said senior Caitlin Donahue.
