By Jonathan Houghton
Staff Reporter
Greek Week at the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln has two objectives
this year: to draw stronger lines of
communication and to form new
friendships between greek houses.
Andrew Poltz, chairman of this
year’s activities, said he hoped the
week will be a positive experience for
“The goal is to bring people to
gether, to get people to know each
other and to have fun doing it,” Poltz
Greek Week’s theme this year is
“Piecing Together a Greater Whole,”
which chairman Doug Brummels said
is an effective theme to promote greek
“It’s an important event for the
greek system. It’s the time of year we
' can celebrate our accomplishments,”
j he said.
The week’s activities, scheduled
for every night through Saturday, be
gins with a speech tonight at the Lied
Center for the Performing Arts.
Joel Goldman and T.J. Sullivan
will talk about their experience with
AIDS tolerance. Goldman and
Sullivan are college fraternity broth
ers, and one them was diagnosed with
AIDS after graduation. The speech is
open to the public.
On Tuesday, groups of two frater
nities and one sorority — called tri
ads — will create banners to display
outside their houses. Greeks will also
celebrate by wearing clothes and jew
elry with their houses’ letters.
Houses will participate in greek
Olympics Wednesday, competing in a
variety of sports including volleyball,
tug of war and miniature golf. The
competition will be at the golf green
behind Harper-Schramm-Smith Resi
dence Halls.
Thursday, a banquet will honor
greek presidents and Greek Week del
egates. Representatives from the In
terfraternity Council and the
Panhellenic Association will be
Triads will have informal barbe
cues Friday, followed by a block party
at the Reunion building from 9 p.m.
to 1 ajn. This activity also is open to
all UNL students with ID.
The week will wrap up Saturday
with a volunteer car wash behind the
University Lutheran Chapel. The pro
ceeds will be donated to community
organizations, including Habitat for
Brummels said the events this year
have been designed to involve and
excite everybody.
“In past years, we’ve seen some
apathy toward the events,” he said.
“We’re hoping to change that.”
Poltz said he thinks this year’s ac
tivities will be more highly regarded
than in past years.
“There’s a lot of enthusiasm for
Greek Week at UNL,” Poltz said.
“People want to get involved.”
