Greek Community Events: Homecoming, Greek Week and Varieties


Homecoming and Greek Week are a series of competitions during the fall and spring (respectively) where our house joins a “pairing” with another sorority and fraternity to compete against other “pairings.” We compete in a range of events including community service events, tournaments, Greek Olympics, Yell Like Hell (where each pairing prepares a five-minute skit showcasing Iowa State’s pride and tradition and scream it at the top of their lungs all while painted from head to toe), as well as Lawn Displays and Blood Drive. Varieties is a single event during the winter where our Chapter forms another pairing to create and perform a 20-minute musical.

Homecoming, Greek Week, and Varieties are awesome opportunities for collaboration among the Greek community and a great opportunity to get to know people from other fraternities and sororities.
