Greek Week Results

This past week our Greek students took part in their annual Greek Week competition. The events included instagram challenges, sporting events and lots of philanthropic work. Our Greek community raised a total of $1,827.77 for the Animal Rescue League of Berks County and donated 8,396 pieces of clothing and blankets to the Opportunity House in Reading. Congratulations to our Greek Week Champions pictured above, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Zeta Tau Alpha. The work you all do never goes unnoticed.
