  • 4. Everyday events are put on by the appointed Greek Week Council, made up of Greek affiliated students from all chapters. Penny Wars is a challenge that took place everyday throughout the week outside The Sturm Building on campus. All five teams have a bucket on a table decorated with their Greek letters and as people pass by teams ask for spare change from. Dollar bills put in the buckets take points away from the teams. Many individuals put dollar bills in the buckets of the opposing teams. All events are self-explanatory in their title, except for the Bromance and “Bowmance” Challenge. In this event, two best friends from each chapter are paired together in a guessing game as judges ask the participants random questions about their partners.
