Greek Extravaganza

At CCC, we encourage student groups to not only build friendships and enjoy themselves, but also find ways to serve the college family and the surrounding communities. One of the best ways that students get involved with such activities is to become actively involved in the Greek clubs on campus. This month, the Greek organizations hosted a variety of activities:

Students helping with Cooper's Point Clean Up
Cooper’s Point Clean Up (Psi Theta Epsilon)
Community Service Representative Melissa Johnston researched community activities and service opportunities on the Keep Pinellas Beautiful website. According to President Evan Hoyt, “PTE likes to get involved in community service. Picking up trash is an easy (and fun!) thing to do with friends, while at the same time, helping to keep the land beautiful. It’s really neat to be a part of something ‘bigger than yourself.’” Eight PTE members worked with close to fifty community workers to beautify the Cooper’s Point area at the east end of campus.

Babysitting Night (Lambda Chi Delta)
LCD hosted a babysitting night open to all staff and faculty members. According to the LCD representative, “This is a great opportunity to have free babysitters so faculty and staff parents can have a night off to enjoy a relaxing dinner with their spouses.” The Greek supplied pizza, games, and entertainment for three hours.

Super Chill Activity (Kappa Iota Alpha)
Starting at midnight on October 29, KIA hosted a "Super Chill" activity for the entire student body with a coffee shop type atmosphere! They provided coffee, eggnog, spiced cider, and biscotti. The KIA representative said, “There was poetry, live music, modern films, retro game systems, holiday music and much more! Don’t miss out!”

Extreme Need Outreach (Alpha Delta Sigma and Tau Delta Chi)
On Saturday, October 9 ADS and TDX began a ministry to the homeless of Clearwater and the surrounding areas through their Extreme Need Outreach program. Together, the two Greeks prayed for the newly established program, wrote personal notes of encouragement that were to be wrapped around bottles of water, and purchased Bibles to hand out to homeless people in public areas around Clearwater. Max Ducharme, president of ADS and one of the organizers of the Extreme Need Outreach program said, “I was very encouraged at the amount of support that our Greeks were able to muster. There was a very good group who came out the first day and a solid core that still goes out twice a week.” Each Tuesday and Saturday, members of ADS and TDC go out into the community and try to help the homeless and needy of Clearwater.
