Greek Sing to add high note at family weekend

by Christi Mathis

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- One of the oldest continuing traditions at Southern Illinois University Carbondale returns during Saluki Family Weekend and everyone can join in the fun.

The 74th Annual Greek sing begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16, on the steps of Shryock Auditorium. The Inter-Greek Council sponsors the event and it is free and open to the public.

Nearly a dozen campus fraternities and sororities will be performing. With personalized song lyrics and dance, the spirited competition is a popular show. In case of rain, the show will move indoors at the Student Center.

The Greek Sing is among the many special activities that comprise Family Weekend 2010 at SIUC. Find the complete schedule for the Oct. 15-17 festivities online at http://news.siuc.edu/news/October10/100810cjm10277.html.
