A Greek affair—The leaders of Birmingham-Southern's sororities and fraternities put aside their official colors and other substantial differences for the first annual Greek Leadership Retreat. The retreat was held Jan. 30-31 at Camp Winnataska in Pell City. It was hosted by the college's Office of Student Affairs. Fraternity and sorority chapter presidents and recruitment chairs attended the retreat along with the Panhellenic and Interfraternity Council presidents and the IFC vice president of recruitment. BSC is home to 12 sororities and fraternities, and even though there is some continuity between the various student organizations, the retreat served as a great way for group leaders to get to know each other, learn various skills needed for their new roles, and discuss topics that will be addressed in the upcoming year. Several Student Affairs staff members and a BSC faculty member also attended.
