A Year in the Life …
here’s more to Greek Week than the social scene, and
this year’s was no exception. As Lauren Fugit, a
psychology major from Vestavia Hills and a member
of Pi Beta Phi, told
The Hilltop News:
It’s about the Greek
community coming together to show the school what we’re
all about—community service, leadership, academics, and a
dedication to excellence.” Fraternities and sororities whose
alumni donated the most to the Annual Fund between
Feb. 20 and April 26 got points, as did those who had the
highest alumni giving percentage during that time. Sigma
Nu and Pi Beta Phi won the trophy, and overall the drive
brought in more than $150,000 and raised Birmingham-
Southern’s overall alumni giving percentage by 5.2
percentage points! In another bit of good Greek news, BSC
ranked No. 1 this year in the list of Top 10 Most Engaging
Greek Life Schools compiled by the Web site Parents & They praised BSC’s fraternities and sororities
for their scholarship, philanthropy, and inclusiveness.
