Greek Weekend has officially begun

Fraternity and Sorority Life takes it to the streets for this year’s Greek Weekend.

Traditionally, FSL celebrated Greek Week in the fall, but because of a busy schedule and conflicting Jewish holidays, the celebration was moved to the spring. Greek Weekend consists of various events put on by FSL, begining April 9 and continuing until April 11.

For the first day, the Greek community shut down 15th and Kincaid to host the kick-off of a massive celebration.

Kelsey Fuson, Panhellenic vice presidednt of community programming, said the celebration hosted local Eugene food trucks and entertainers. FSL members had the choice of eating from Da Nang Eatery, Mondo Forcella, Red Five Hot Dog Company and Megan’s Snack Shack. Along with the food, members could get caricatures done of themselves, visit a magician or receive a henna tattoo.

FSL incorporated other community groups such as Relay for Life, Jam Squad and On The Rocks to top it all off.

Overall the event hosted over 1,ooo members.

“We were excited about the turn out. We had a lot of fun with local food carts and the student groups who participated,” Fuson said. “It was a great way to celebrate all the accomplishments of our chapters.”

FSL is continuing its Greek Weekend today by partnering with Womenspace to promote sexual assault awareness, and will be outside the EMU from 10-2 today.
