Septemebr 11, 2018 – Barton College fraternities and sororities hosted a cookout, which seemed to be one of the more popular activities on campus this week. Students interested in Greek life filled center campus Wednesday, Sept. 5, at the annual all Greek cookout.

The purpose of the cookout is to give prospective students interested in Greek life the opportunity to meet fellow fraternity and sorority members on campus. Members of the two sororities, Delta Zeta and Sigma Sigma Sigma were present, as well as the three fraternities: Alpha Sigma Phi, Pi Kappa Phi and Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Robert Zamorano, member of Sigma Phi Epsilon said, “The cookout gave us the opportunity to form bonds with potential brothers.”

Alayna Moore, Sigma Sigma Sigma said, “The cookout impacted my decision of joining Greek life as a freshman because of the camaraderie I witnessed.”

The cafeteria provided free food and drinks to anyone who decided to attend the cookout. Also, the pairing of the farmer’s market led to different games being available such as: Connect Four, corn hole, and frisbee.

The next school-wide Greek activity will be Formal Recruitment, starting Sept. 20, lasting until bid day. Bid day will take place on Sept. 28 for the Interfraternity Council and Sept. 29 for Panhellenic organizations.
