Greek Week is an event that takes place every spring at Belmont. This week-long event features competitions that challenge mind and body as well as philanthropic efforts that better the Nashville community. While there is healthy competition that takes place between each of the different organizations, Greek Week also provides an opportunity for fellowship between all members of the Greek community. Events throughout the week are awarded points based on performance and attendance—the chapter withthe most points at the end of the week is crowned winner of Greek Week. Two cornerstone events for Greek Week are the “Greek Olympics” and the “Greek Day of Service.” During “Greek Olympics” each chapter competes in athletic events ranging from a rope tug to completing an obstacle course to earn points. The “Greek Day of Service” happens on Saturday of Greek Weekevery year where members of each organization are given the opportunity toparticipate in service in the Nashville community.
The culmination of Greek Week is an event called “Greek Sing.” Each chapter spends the months preceding Greek Week preparing a short show featuring original dances and lyrics that tell a narrative about our community.Greek Sing is usually the favorite event of the year and serves as a way for each chapter to showcase the talent within their chapter.
Panhellenic Week is a program started by the Panhellenic Executive Council in 2012 as a way to bring the Panhellenic community together.
