winter-spring 2013 / 45
This year’s Greek Week is fast upon us, and for 2013,
the competition will include points for the sororities
and fraternities whose alumni donate the most to the
Annual Fund between June 1, 2012, and April 18, 2013,
plus points for those with the highest alumni giving
In 2012, the Greek battle increased the college’s overall giving percentage by five
points, raised more than $154,000, and gave Pi Phi and Sigma Nu the points they
needed to land the coveted Greek Week title.
If you’re a fraternity or sorority member, you can go to
designate your gift to the Annul Fund and to your Greek organization. A gift of any size
counts, whether it’s $100, $1,000, or $100,000. As a bonus, extra points will be given
for ’Southern Society leadership gifts of $1,000 or more. All donations must be in by
noon on Thursday, April 18, to count toward Greek Week points.

to the college’s financial health and go toward scholarships, faculty and staff salaries,
research opportunities, library collections, and technology upgrades.
