Ask Me About My Backpack!

     Hey friends!  It’s another wonderful week here in the Woods.

     Last week was one of my favorite weeks of the year – Greek Week!  What is Greek Week, you ask?  Good question!  To me, Greek Week is a week devoted to the celebration of sorority and fraternity life by promoting unity and service in our community.  This year was FULL of service opportunities and fun activities for the Greeks at WWU!

Throughout the week, we focused on serving the community as a collective group.  This year, we chose the Buddy Pack Program for the Fulton area.  The Buddy Pack Program provides backpacks full of kid-friendly, nutritious food that students can take home over the weekend or holiday periods to supplement their meals when there may not be enough for them to eat at home.  In my Greek house, Chi Omega, we chose Stephanie Behlmann to represent and lead our chapter in raising money!  She wore the cutest backpack labeled "Ask Me about my Backpack!" around campus for a week and sought out donations from the businesses and organizations in Fulton.

       On Friday, Stephanie organized a bake sale outside of Fulton Walmart.  Not only did we raise some money, but my Chi Omega sisters had a great time hanging out in the sun representing our sorority!  In one week, Stephanie lead our chapter to raise $729!  As a Greek community, WWU's Greeks raised around $2,000!  It was so rewarding to be a part of a service project that could help the people right here in Fulton!bake sale

I was so proud of my sorority sister for putting in the effort to collect so much money.  When I asked Stephanie about her feelings about the week, Stephanie said, "At first, I was only collecting money because it was what we do as Greeks.  Community service is part of our purpose.  As the week went on and I got closer to the program, I started so see how important it was that I did my best to raise money!  I learned so much about what it really means to serve and I am glad I got to be a part of this week."

There was so much to do during the week.  I love the opportunity talk about my sorority experience and celebrate how fortunate I am to be associated with these other Greek members at William Woods University!  There are a lot of benefits of sorority and fraternity life, and I'm happy that we get the chance to help others in the process.

Thanks again for reading my Admissions Blog!  Next week, I'll be hanging out in Frankfort, Kentucky for the NAIA Women's Basketball National Tournament!  Check in next week to see what the basketball team is up to!
