This Week's Message

"It's all GREEK to me"

All of the signs of Spring are upon us - longer days, chirping birds, and, let us not forget, freshly minted, Greek-letter-emblazoned fraternity and sorority members. Although some of us have been guilty of the occasional eye roll when we see and hear identically dressed pledge classes carrying out their Spring ritual, the Greek system has been a part of Augustana for over 100 years and is an important part of the lives of the almost one thousand students who take part in it.

So, how does the Greek system fit into the mission of Augustana College?  That's what we'll be talking about at this week's Friday Conversation.  Join Ken Brill, Katey Bignall, and Allen Bertsche as they discuss the recently completed "Greek Life Task Force Report." 

Refreshments begin at 3:30; the talk at 4:00.  No paddles allowed.
