Monmouth’s Greek Week 2022 served as a return to normalcy as members of Greek life were able to participate in face-to-face events and competitions not seen since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. The theme decided upon by delegates from all Greek chapters was Monsters University, the 2013 sequel to Monsters Inc.
Partnered with the amazing women of Pi Beta Phi, the brothers of IL-Gamma won 1st place in the Scavenger Hunt on Monday night! We later received 2nd place in both the banner competition and in the Penny Wars fundraiser. At the awards ceremony on Friday night, SigEp was honored with the award for Excellence in Philanthropic Programming for their work with Santa’s Hospital Helpers, a group that raises funds to buy toys for children in hospitals during the holiday season. The chapter’s advisor, Steve Distin, a member of Monmouth’s Chemistry department, was awarded Outstanding Chapter Advisor.
Also at the awards ceremony, President Elijah Lind presented on SigEp’s partnership with the Alpha Delta Pi sorority for the 2022 #LiveYourOath Campaign focused on sexual assault prevention, with April being Sexual Assault Awareness Month. He introduced a pledge available for all Greek life members to sign, promising to do their part to increase education about sexual assault and its prevention.
Later, VP of Communications Cullen Marshall was given his graduation cord for Order of Omega Greek Honor Society. Cullen also presented the award for Outstanding Community Service to the men of Zeta Beta Tau. At the end, VP of the SigEp Learning Community Ty Otto was recognized for his work in planning the week as SigEp’s representative on the Greek Week committee.
Overall, the brothers had a great week and proved how much they can achieve as a group and as individuals, even as one of the smaller chapters on campus.
