GREEK PROGRAMMING CAROLINA/CLEMSON BLOOD BATTLE The Carolina/Clemson Blood Drive is the largest blood drive in the state of South Carolina. The event is sponsored annually by the Greek Programming Board in partnership with the American Red Cross. The 24th Annual Carolina/Clemson Drive resulted in USC collecting over 4,039 pints of blood, and beating Clemson! A positive tradition for both institutions the blood drive is a fun, competitive way to help those in need. Greek students at USC enjoy sponsoring this worthwhile project for the entire Carolina community.
GREEK WEEK Held annually in the spring, Greek Week is a time for all chapters to come together to celebrate our commonalities of friendship, scholarship, leadership and service. Greek Week activities include a community service project, a week-long canned food drive, a stroll competition, Greek Olympics, a lip sync and a banner competition. This year’s theme was “Greekelodeon,” and activities were based on television shows from the 1990s.
GREEK HOLIDAY SOCIAL Greek students come together each year for an evening to celebrate the holiday season. This year, the students enjoyed hot cocoa and snacks, listened to caroling and viewed a tree lighting ceremony in the Founders Circle area of the Greek Village. There are twenty homes in the Greek Village, and during the holiday season the homes are always decorated beautifully.
TRICK OR TREAT WITH THE GREEKS Each year, the Greek Community invites the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia to come and celebrate Halloween in the Greek Village. Fraternities and sororities pair up to create fun and safe games for the children to play. They also dress up and pass out candy to the trick or treaters.
