A week-long celebration of the Greek community

Greek Week is a week-long celebration of the Greek community at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire that is sponsored by the Interfraternity and PanHellenic Councils. The week is designed to follow the four guiding pillars of Greek Life, with events that are focused on Leadership, Scholarship, Service, and Friendship. There are two separate competitions that take place during the week; the Spirit Cup competition for the organizations, and the Greek God and Goddess competition that is for individual members that are representing their organizations.

Greek Week for 2022 will be Monday, May 2nd through Friday, May 6th.  Almost all events are open to any staff or student who would like to spectate or participate.
