Greek Week '08

Greek Week '08
Each year the Greeks participate in Greek Week. It’s a week dedicated to the Greek Life on campus. Here we have members of Beta and members of AGD. Each Greek Week, a fraternity and sorority are paired for the events of the week. Here they are competing in some competitions to try and beat the other pairs. This is an example of social norms. These are events that are expected of each member of the chapter and these rules define the behavior, that each person participating, acts.
