Traditions

Greek Week

For over 60 years in the spring, URI Greek Life has hosted this longstanding tradition.  Greek week is defined by a series of athletic and entertainment  events through which  fraternities and sororities raise thousands of dollars each year for national and local charities.

 

Philanthropy Week

Pound the Pavement, Pound a Nail

Philanthropy-Week-2013

St. Mary’s – Philanthropy Week

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last year, Greek Life raised $107,000 at the “Pound the Pavement, Pound a Nail” walkathon, an annual event sponsored by the URI South County Habitat for Humanity partnership committee.

Philanthropy Week is one of the most rewarding times for the Greek System. Throughout this week, there is a series of events where all Greeks come together to fundraise for charitable organizations. Events vary every year but can include: Dance Competition, Singled Out, Date Auction, Lego Construction Contest, Dodgeball Tournament, and a canned food drive. In the past, the Greek System raised $10,000 to be donated to the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Foundation. Along with this major charity, the Greek chapters are partnered with one another to raise money for various other organizations.
