From the close of Greek Week to a Multicultural Affairs Office study night and dance party, the week ahead offers plenty of alternatives to staying home and couching. Here are some highlights.


Recruitment comes to a close

Last week, student had the opportunity to get involved with Fraternity and Sorority Life on campus. Students participated in “meet and greets” with the sororities Pi Phi Epsilon, Alpha Sigma Alpha-Theta Tau chapter, Phi Sigma Sigma-Iota Omicron chapter and Delta Phi Epsilon-Gamma Kappa chapter; and the fraternities Alpha Sigma Phi-Epsilon Chi chapter, Phi Kappa Psi-Ohio Xi chapter, Kappa Sigma-Sigma Upsilon chapter and Sigma Alpha Beta. 


Today, Friday, September 28, marks the third and final round of rush parties for sororities and bid day for fraternities. This weekend will conclude the formal fall recruitment period. To find out more information or in you have any questions, email or


Residential, Commuter Life celebrating TGIF

This year, Residential and Commuter Life has started a weekly “Thank Goodness It’s Friday” series with a different student activity every Friday evening. So far this year, students fished in the fountain during Fishing Fountain Friday and rocked out during a Rock Band Tournament. This Friday’s event is T-shirt tie-dye in the Mezz from 8 to 10 tonight. Students can bring plain white or colored T-shirts to decorate. All paint pens, dyes, and other supplies will be provided.


Multicultural Affairs dances night away

The Office of Multicultural Affairs, or MAO, aims to support a diverse community. One way in which they do this is through providing programming for students throughout the academic year. On Monday, October 1, MAO will host a study night and dance break event from 7 to 10 pm in Schneider Multipurpose Room and Weiler Conference Suites. 


Students are invited to attend a study table to catch up on work, and then take a dance break to learn dances from other various cultures.


Fraternity painting for passion

Sigma Alpha Beta co-ed fraternity has chosen to support a variety of philanthropies during its time at Capital, from charity: water to the Shoeman Water Projects to the Girl Effect to One Day Without Shoes. Each year, the organization chooses a different philanthropy to support, and this year, SAB has chosen the Passion Project.


SAB will kick off its new philanthropy with its Paint for Passion event Tuesday, October 2, from 7 to 9 pm on Schaaf Lawn. Students are welcome to bring T-shirts and other clothing to tie-dye and enjoy food, games and other activities.
