St. Gregory’s University’s Greek Life Builds Picnic Tables for Campus
By Peyton Bates, Student Marketing Assistant
Members of St. Gregory's University's Greek life community came together for a day of fellowship and service on March 26. The greek life community on campus consists of Beta Phi Gamma, Delta Omicron Omega, Theta Chi Omega, Zeta Xi Lambda, and pledge chapters for Phi Sigma Nu and Alpha Pi Omega.
The day started with a meal for participants and then went into a scavenger hunt for students to secure the materials needed to build and paint seven picnic tables which would be used by the student body, staff, faculty and visitors.
“The picnic tables, located in the grassy area directly in front of the Rockwood, will be permanent fixtures on the St. Gregory’s University campus for the use of our student body, staff, and faculty,” said Cedric Sunray, the Co-Activity Director and Retention Specialist. “In this way, we have some added outdoor space for gathering, socializing, and learning.”
Students were excited to participate in this service project, and happy to contribute to the beautification of campus.
“Building the picnic tables was a learning experience as well as a great team exercise,” said Bailey Ring, a junior Nursing major and member of Zeta Xi Lambda. “I’m excited to see this new feature of Greek life on campus!”
The first team to complete their hand-built picnic table was the newly sanctioned Phi Sigma Nu American Indian Fraternity. The team won t-shirts with their organizational letters on them. The winner of the “Best Table Design” was Zeta Xi Lambda Sorority, which also won them a second picnic table.
