10 Of The Best Things About Greek Week

It’s the most anticipated time of the year for Greeks…Greek Week! This can be a time of so much fun and bonding with your organization and the brothers and sisters of the others, while at the same time having everyone at each other’s throats and completely stressed out. Here are some of the best things about Greek Week.

1. Competition

Some friendly competition is always fun. Also, being in different organizations, not everyone gets along all the time and as harsh as it might sound, this is the perfect time to get out some aggravation.

2. Reliving your glory days

If you played a sport in high school, that sport or some sort of hybrid of it will probably be an event during the week. Get out the knee brace and start practicing because this is it. It’s your time to show off your skills and to shine in front of all of your college friends who weren’t there to live those high school days with you.

3. There’s something for everyone

If you didn’t play a sport in high school and don’t have an athletic bone in your body, don’t you fret. There is still plenty of events for you. Banner making, trivia, checkers, Greek Alphabet, lemon-eating, you name it, we got it.

4. Bonding with everyone

Every social Greek organization is together every night (most of those nights, very long) for a whole week. This is literally the most perfect time to bond with everyone and get to know the brothers and sisters of the other organizations.

5. Bonding with your own brothers or sisters

Greek Week is also a great time to make your bonds with your own brothers or sisters even stronger. All the events require so much teamwork, effort and support from everyone that you can’t help but become closer.

6. Making memories

It is inevitable to make some awesome memories within and without your organization. These are memories that you will literally be talking and laughing about forever or at least until next year’s Greek Week.

7. No meetings!

If it's not Greek Week it's probably cancelled and definitely not on your things to do during this week.

8. Watching

Even if you're not participating in an event, it's always fun to go watch, show some support and see everyone else being overly competitive and getting really into whatever they happen to be doing.

9. Winning

If someone tells you they don’t like winning, they’re lying. Whether it’s just one event you tried really hard for or if it’s the whole week, everyone enjoys winning and it’s one of the best feelings in the world to know you succeeded.

10. Having fun

The most important part of Greek Week is to remember to have fun. Greek Week is something I look forward to every year and is my favorite week of spring semester. No matter if you come in first or last place, you and your brothers or sisters probably had a blast doing it.

At the end of the day (or week) Greek Week is such a fun experience that ends up teaching you a lot about yourself, your brothers or sisters and the brothers and sisters of the other organizations. So get excited my fellow Greeks and may the odds be ever in your favor.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
