The Greek Community Gets Involved
he month of April is a very busy time for the Greek Community at WKU. With philantrophy events for many sororities and fraternities and the annual Greek Week activities, Greek men and women experience special opportunities to give back! This week isnt all just fun and games. Each organization is encouraged to give back to the community. A blood drive was held throughout the week and members as well as non-members were able to give blood. Over 400 lives were saved from this year's donations alone!
