Greek Week

Greek Week 2023 was a SMASHING success this year! In total, we raised over $23,500 dollars for our philanthropies which were the Adair Country Public Library and Truman’s Investing in Students Fund. In addition to raising money, members of the community also made a huge impact on our Kirksville community through donating books to put into local lending libraries, recording audio books — including some in different languages!!– for the library to use, and participating in service at the BIG event. Our individual council winners were Delta Zeta for the Panhellenic Council, Beta Theta Pi for the Interfraternity Council, and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, inc for the National Pan-hellenic Council. Greek Week 2024 can’t come fast enough

Greek Week at Truman State University is a week-long celebration that takes place each spring. Greek Week strives to build and promote Fraternity and Sorority Life unity on campus through friendly team competitions. It is also a time for FSL members to give back to the campus and Kirksville community.

Greek Week strives to:

  • Promote FSL unity
  • Inspire friendly competition among the organizations
  • Expanding individual’s circle of friends by creating new opportunities to get to know other
  • Ability to show your pride for your organization
  • Create a positive image on Truman’s campus for the FSL community
  • Support the Truman and Kirksville community through philanthropic efforts
  • Recognize FSL students as leaders

The Greek Week Committee is comprised current FSL students from an assortment of organizations and the FSL Team. The committee is led by our Greek Week Director who is selected through an application process in the fall. The Greek Week Committee begins planning at the end of the fall semester to prepare for spring activities. Please reach out to our current Greek Week Director, or any FSL Team member, if you are interested in joining the Greek Week Committee!

Greek Week holds a variety of competition events throughout the week on campus. Every year the events change to correlate with the current theme that is chosen by the committee in the fall. Annual events include: a philanthropic event, Greek Week Kick-Off, annual athletic games, trivia, Court and Lip Sync.
