Lindenwood Greek organizations competed against each other in the annual Greek Olympics during the week of April 16. Activities included tug-of-war, dodge ball, a relay race, and an obstacle course. The relay race, held in the Quad on April 19, drew a crowd of over 50 people from the Greek community as well as a few spectators. Fraternity and sorority members tag-teamed through a series of obstacles set up by the Lindenwood Greek Council (LGC). Each team had representatives to run a wheelbarrow race, army crawl under some string, slide across a slippery tarp, and carry an egg on a spoon back across the tarp.
