Greek life here at Christopher Newport University is not all about socializing and making new friends. Service is a big role for each member of a fraternity or a sorority. As I walk around campus, I am constantly seeing flyers and other sorts of announcements for events being hosted by a fraternity or sorority on campus. They hold these events in order to raise money for their partnering organizations or other causes.
Some events held on campus are Gamma Phi Beta’s Best Dance Crew, Alpha Phi’s Red Dress Gala, Zeta Tau Alpha’s Pink-Out during a basketball game, and many more. If a big event is being held, the organizations set up fundraisers with local restaurants and a portion of the proceeds go toward their cause. All of these events have proven to be successful, which is why they have become an annual thing.
Next time you are on campus during one of these events, I would recommend you check them out!
