Cal Greeks

Greek Carnival

CalGreeks sponsored a very successful Greek Carnival during Welcome Week. They brought together approximately 4000 students (2900 non-affiliated students and 1100 fraternity/sorority affiliated students) for a late night alcohol-free carnival prior to classes starting. Students picked up free cotton candy, participated in a variety of carnival games like fishing booths and bean bag toss games, and got to know our CalGreeks students.
