Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon.

To many incoming freshman students these letters mean nothing, but for thousands of college students at Towson University in Towson, Md. they mean everything.  On Sunday evening, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Towson’s university union, the Inter Fraternity Council held a ‘meet the Greeks event’ to allow potential Greek life participants an opportunity to discover the various fraternities on campus.

Eight of the 10 fraternities on Towson’s campus participated in information sessions designed to recruit new members for their individual chapters. Each session ran 15 minutes where topics such as the upcoming rush week (September 14 -17) and values of the chapter were discussed.

Overall, the event was received in positive fashion. The event was  “beneficial, a great way to get exposure for rush week and our frat,” Todd Kalmanson, President of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity, said .

Greek life is the largest student organization on Towson’s campus, and as rush week begins it looks to continue its trend of growth. For the IFC, the hope is that Sunday’s session encouraged more students to join a fraternity and proudly display Greek letters for their college career.
