CSUB celebrates Greek Week


A "college survival game show" is one of the featured events this week as fraternities and sororities at California State University, Bakersfield celebrate Greek Week.

"OutKast," a game show open to all CSUB students, is scheduled Tuesday night in the CSUB Amphitheater. "It's a game based on the reality-type TV shows," said Roger Eagleton of Kappa Alpha fraternity and a coordinator of Greek Week. "It features high audience participation. There will be two overall winners selected, with the grand price being a trip for two to the Bahamas."

But that's not all that the three fraternities and three sororities have planned. Other activities include:

Reading to children at the CSUB Children's Center on Tuesday afternoon.

A talent show Wednesday night.

A softball game Thursday.

A faculty appreciation luncheon Friday.

The week began Sunday when the six clubs built houses on Runner Park, the grassy area just west of the CSUB Student Union. Fraternity and sorority members will socialize in their newly built "neighborhood" during the week, before the houses come down Saturday.

Participating fraternities are Kappa Alpha Order, Theta Chi and Delta Zeta Tau. Participating sororities are Gamma Phi Beta, Phi Sigma Sigma and Theta Sigma Chi.

"We invite everyone to come visit us at Runner Park during Greek Week and find out more about participating in a fraternity or sorority," Eagleton said. "It's a fun experience, and also rewarding."
