Greek Week revived Skits kick-off week long events by BARBARA McREYNOLDS FTER a number of years of inactivity Greek Week was revived on campus. Sponsored by the Greek Activities Steering Committees, the week's events ranged from bike races to jam sessions. Kick-off activities began Thursday with representatives from each sorority and fraternity participating in skits presented to the Greeks. Outstanding Greek man and woman candidates were also introduced that evening. A jam session featuring two bands — Snap and Apocrypha — was held in the Fraternity Quadrangle Friday. Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity sponsored a beer blast in conjunction with the jam session. Sigma Alpha Epsilon revived old memories with a '50's Party Saturday afternoon. A disc jockey, rock and roll music and beer, this was one of the most successful events. The Sigma Pi bike race and Greek Sing were held on Sunday. Brad Swope placed first in the bike race and Ann McManus captured the women's title. House parents were honored at the Greek Sing Sunday evening where sororities and fraternities sang chapter songs and modern tunes. An Apple Polishing Dessert honored UK faculty members and staff on Monday night. Members from each Greek organization hosted the evening and each house contributed an apple dessert for the event.
