As the lights were dimmed and the crowd was silenced, the Multicultural Greek Council opened up their showcase with an exciting video that featured their multiple organizations, and also extended an invitation for interested students to be a part of multicultural Greek life.
"MGC is a group of historically multicultural sororities and fraternities that are coming together under one umbrella so we can all stay unified," senior Sigma Kappa Omega President Krystina Christiansen said.
Students were given the opportunity to see the Multicultural Greek Council chapters during Wednesday's showcase as a part of MGC week. All of the MGC chapters were in attendance, and each one gave a presentation about their chapter and why students should join their particular organization and be a part of multicultural Greek life.
"What sets us apart from other Greek council is that we don't just focus on our individual sisterhoods and brotherhoods, we focus on having that bond among our entire council," Christiansen said.
The MGC is made up of 8 different fraternities and sororities: Delta Xi Nu, Kappa Delta Chi, Lambda Theta Alpha, Omega Delta Phi, Sigma Kappa Omega, Sigma Lambda Beta, Sigma Lambda Gamma, and Sigma Rhomeo.
Like all Greek life, these fraternities and sororities each have their own values and traditions, and they encourage interested students to join whatever sorority and fraternity that seem to enthrall them the most.
Once the showcase ended, the sororities and fraternities continued to recruit outside the ballroom and those who wanted to learn more about the organizations went to their table to find out more information.
"Greek Life seems so fun and inspiring," freshman Lykendra Mims said. "I would do it."
