Greek Week Chariot Race

Patricia Schiotis on Sunday, 11 April 2010. Posted in Clubs, Fraternity / Sorority Life, Student Life


Every spring, the Greek community is united for a week of competitions for Greek week.  The chapters were divided into eight teams, my sorority being on the green team!  The kickoff event was a chariot race, where all of the teams were to create a vehicle to race around the sentinel circle.

This was the first year for the chariot race.  The teams came out with their crazy creations,and my team came with a tricycle.  One of my sisters curled up on the seat, and three sets of two pullers took turns pulling her around the circle.  I was in the first set for my team, and we dominated! I honestly was not sure if the tricycle would last the entire race.  Other teams legitimately had their chariots crumble underneath the rider, or the rider flipping off around the circle.  But our rider stayed on strong, and the green team ending up winning! 

We are now looking forward to the rest of the Greek week events that will be occurring the rest of week 6.
