Main Concourse - Student Union Building 10am to 4pm, March 15th & 16th only March 6- 10 is our chance to participate across campus in UBC Greek Week. Greek involvement is encouraged throughout, as the spirit of the Greek system will be witnessed by everyone at UBC. This week is designed to be fun. It will raise awareness of the Greek system and fundraise for some deserving charities while giving a chance for some friendly competition in Friday’s Greek Olympics. What has to make this week a success however is going to be a demonstration of Greek Enthusiasm. This effort should come from all Greeks and means two things in particular: Wear your letters all week. Participate in scheduled events. These events should be a really cool time if each Fraternity and Sorority send a group to attend them. This is also an excellent chance to have spring recruits participate in Greek events!
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2016 COB Open House! Congratulations to all of the women who joined UBC Sororities this semester!
