Transcript BRGTKERS UH s nanj fraternities do nore than just parij There's the checkered flag! A brave member of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity races around the track during the Phi Kap 500. The event was great fun for participants, and raised a great deal of money for the Children's Miracle Network. Photo by Lauren Wilson 40/ Student Life "Fraternity" comes from the Latin word which means brotherhood, which is exactly what some members of the UH community became a part of when they decided in the first few weeks of each semester that they would try to join one of UH's many Greek organizations. With more than a dozen nationally recognized fraternities on campus, the Greek community was a lot more active than some may think. Critics of fraternal organizations have argued that they serve no useful purpose and merely give college men an excuse to get together and drink to excess. However, these people failed to realize the ways in which the campuses many fraternities gave back to the campus during the 2001-2002 school year. Some of the larger groups on campus, such as Phi Kappa Theta and Sigma Phi Epsilon, participated in many community service activities including picking up trash around campus, donating time and fundraising for various charity organizations, and conducting blood drives for the victims of the September 11th tragedy. But some of the greatest contributions from the Greek community on campus occured during the special UH events which were held throughout the year. During UH's annual Homecoming Week, fraternities participated in many events intended to fuel school spirit and show off for alumni and potential students what the UH community has to offer. Nearly every fraternal organization on campus marched in the Homecoming Parade as it wound its way through campus. The fraternities also competed against each other in several events, including decorating the University Center and showing off their school pride at the Homecoming Pep Rally. The other major event for the UH Greeks was none other than the greatest college show on Earth: Frontier Fiesta. Nearly ten fraternities participated directly in the event, helping to build "Fiesta City," choreographing a multitude of variety shows for the public's entertainment, and showing off their culinary skills in the event's cook-off. "It's a lot of hard work setting Fiesta City up in only a matter of days, but when you've got the help of your brothers, it makes it a lot easier and a lot more fun," said William Sykes, a member of Pi Kappa Phi. Greek life is a unique experience where college men get the chance to know real friendship and be a part of a close- knit family with similar ideals, values, and goals. Story by Matthew E.
