Turn off the Toddlers and Tiaras and redirect your tweets from Honey Boo Boo to Deepher Dudes, because on October 26, it’s all about the fellows and the formal wear on the PLV Campus. If the pageant’s not your slice of pie, maybe pieing a Deepher is?

Under the Influence

Tau Kappa Epsilon welcomes Mark Sterner to the PLV Campus to tell his tragic story about how one mistake killed three of his best friends.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults drank too much and got behind the wheel about 112 million times in 2010–that’s almost 300,000 incidents of drinking and driving each day.

That’s why Tau Kappa Epsilon will host a DUI Lecture featuring guest speaker Mark Sterner, who will tell his powerful story about how a spring break trip before graduation turned into a nightmare.

Just three months before graduating from college, Mark Sterner and four of his fraternity brothers were partying on Spring Break with their whole lives ahead of them, until they decided on the final night of the trip that the least drunk person would drive home. The next morning, three of his friends were dead, and Mark was in a hospital facing three felony counts of DUI manslaughter. Instead of being the first in his family to graduate college, Mark ended up the first member of his family to go to prison.

Stop by the Gottesman Room on October 24 from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. to hear Mark’s powerful story.

On December 4, pack your knives and your culinary skills for an afternoon of cooking and culture at the Greek Life Cultural Food Cook-Off in the Gottesman Room on the PLV Campus.

If you’re interested in cooking up some delicious foods, you’ll need a team of no more than five members (can be a Greek org, a club, Residence Hall, etc.) Each team will need to choose a country to represent and come up with a corresponding cultural dish (appetizer, entrée, or dessert), and make 30 sample-sized portions of their dish for judges and spectators. Spectators will each be given a ticket, which will be used as ballots to vote for their favorite dish.

Four prizes will be awarded: Best Appetizer, Best Entrée, and Best Dessert (each $100 prize awarded by judges) and a Crowd Favorite ($200 prize).

If you’re interested in participating, registration will be open until November 28 or until 30 teams have registered. First come, first-served.

The event is free to everyone, so come out and taste food and support your Setter sous chef.

Our Big Fat Greek Week

Greek decathlon, lip-sync, letters in the library, can drives, and more. This week, it’s all Greek to PLV!

The tailgate kick off, Real World/Road Rules Challenge, and rock re-painting may have passed, but there are still five nights of fun Greek Week events for you to Gamma Epsilon Tau to. See what we did there?

Put on your game face for the Greek Decathlon tonight, October 10, at 9:00 p.m. in the Willcox Gym. Greek Week Teams will compete in a series of ten challenges that will test your creativity, coordination, athleticism, and smarts.

Rock your letters and hit the books on October 11 at 7:00 p.m.! Stop by the Mortola Library for a Greek study session. Teams receive the points for bringing members and non-Greek friends to the library and studying. 

Show your faculty members some love at the Faculty Appreciation Progressive Lunch on October 12 at 12:30 p.m. in the Commute Lounge. Each team will prepare a dish, have a handout showing their scholarship efforts, and get to know faculty.

Can you help feed the hungry? Bring all your cans to the Setter’s Café by 3:30 p.m. on October 13 as the weeklong can drive ends. Cans will be counted and a can equals one point so get as many as you can! Cans will be donated to the Westchester Coalition for the Hungry and Homeless.

On October 14, bring your best Ashlee Simpson to the Gottesman Room for the Greek Lip-Sync, where teams will choreograph their own original performance using a song that represents unity and judges will allocate points to the best teams.
