Greek Week at the University of Michigan has held many forms over its history. The origination of it began prior to 1950 when the Interfraternity Council held its annual IFC Sing Competition - often outside on the steps of the graduate library. Greek Week, as many know it, began in the late 1970's when Panhellenic and IFC chapters began teaming up.
For over 30 years, Greek Week brought together the fraternity & sorority community for series of events that raise money for charity. Fraternities and sororities competed compete in events such as tug-of-war, 11-legged race, volleyball, trivia, and pie-eating. Other events included the Blood drive, Service Day, and Greek Olympics. Greek Week concluded with the Sing & Variety Show where students got to show off their singing and dancing skills. Each year, a team was crowned Greek Week Champion. While competing in these events, money was raised for local and national charities.
Over the years, events came and went, Multicutural Greek Council and National Pan-Hellenic chapters particpated and hunderds of thousand of dollars was raised for local and national charities. Do you remember particpating? Want to know who won each year. Explore the history of Greek Week.
