Greek Week hits a musical note

By Angela Dahl

Fraternity Sigma Chi’s “Grease”spoof and sorority Sigma Kappa’s
“Grinch” skit won Lip Sync this year, one of the most popular Greek
Week competitions.

Sororities and fraternities compete to see who has the best song
and dance performance.

The catch is everything must be prerecorded so that the
performers lip sync the entire time.

Sigma Kappa’s skit had a Dr. Seuss tale called, “How the Grinch
Stole Greek Unity,” while Sigma Chi parodied “Grease,” and included
an Elvis cameo.

Molly Scott, a fourth-year technology and operations management
student, was one of the performers for Sigma Kappa.

“I enjoyed watching the other sororities,” said Scott.

The Phi Kappa Tau and Alpha Phi Alpha fraternities did a “Back
to the Future” themed show, complete with an “Ortizmobile” time

Tau Kappa Epsilon did a “Mean Girls” parody and was the first to
use boys in drag ” always a popular choice.

The Kappa Delta sorority had a “Gilligan’s Island” theme, with a
dance-off to survive on the island.

Another fraterntiy, Sigma Phi Epsilon, did a “Bill and Ted’s
Excellent Adventure” spoof, bringing back Michael Jackson and MC
Hammer to pass their dance final. The crowd got into a silhouetted
appearance of Jackson.

The Sigma Nu fraternity had a “Titanic” theme, with a surprise
Vanilla Ice popping out of an iceberg.

Sorority Zeta Tau Alpha did a skit based on the “Clue” board

One by one, the characters were killed off by Cal Poly’s Greek

Lanee Kelley, a fourth-year communication student, said her
sorority worked on their show for two months.

She said practice is a lot of hard work, but she will miss it a

Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity did a “Men In Black” and
“Twilight” spoof, ending with Edward Cullen getting shot with a

The Chi Omega sorority did a “Charlie’s Angels” skit, where they
tried to save Obama from the infamous engineering student with a
samurai sword.

Even Greek students from other campuses came to watch. Adriana
Serrano, a fourth-year behavioral sciences student from the
University of La Verne, wanted to come because she was very
interested in what other Greek organizations do.

“It’s really great to see all of these organizations come
together to show their school pride,” she said.

Last Thursday’s Quiz Bowl also drew a crowd as sororities and
fraternities tested their street smarts and campus knowledge.

Chapters are given a wide range of categories ” from “Russia” to
“Boy Bands” and “Twilight” to “Triangles.” Chi Omega won amongst
the sororities and Sigma Chi won amongst the fraternities.

“Greek Week starts and ends with philanthropy events, with at
least $2,000 raised for different scholarships and charities,” said
Christina Tran, event coordinator and Greek Council vice president
of internal affairs.
