Hero of the Week: Greek Life Philanthropies

These heroes culminate several of the Greek Life organizations that have spent the past few weeks shedding light on their delegated philanthropies.

This past week, the sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha set up a table at the bottom of Hodson Commons for Pink Week to raise awareness for breast cancer awareness and research. At the end of the week, on Friday, they put on their annual male beauty pageant, Big Man on Campus. Ticket proceeds went to the Susan G. Komen research foundation. Not only did they educate peers about proper breast health and examinations, the male competitors of Big Man provided laughter and cheer to a full house of the student body.

On the Saturday morning of Shoremal, the brothers of Kappa Sigma ran their annual pancake breakfast for Military Heroes. Their philanthropy focuses on taking care of veterans and their families post-service. This event welcomed a warm combination of Washington Collge and Chestertown community members under one roof.

So far this week, the sisters of Alpha Chi Omega are tabling for Purple Out Week. They are taking the time to educate their peers about domestic violence awareness and discuss healthy relationships. Their week is going to end with their annual Casino Night at the Hodson Boathouse on Saturday evening, which will money for the local Mid-Shore Council on providing healthy opportunities to break the cycle of abuse.

Great work to the brothers and sisters of these hard-working fraternities for their service opportunities!
