As a slow trickle of brightly dressed Eastern sorority and fraternity members walk to Lantz Arena they contrast the softball fans in t-shirts and shorts at Williams field. Dashes of red, yellow and green make their way across campus for Greek Sing.
Part of Eastern’s Greek Week, Greek Sing involves sororities and fraternities singing musical medleys. Lantz Arena was filled with students and family for the event Sunday.
I originally wasn’t planning on covering Greek Sing, but because of another canceled event on Friday I decided to see what I could get. I was happy I decided to spend a few hours of my Sunday afternoon in a stuffy gym. Here are a few of my favorite shots.
Since things have been a little slow while I’m finishing up what is left of my winter break I realized I never posted the first video I worked on. This was from the spring of last year during Eastern’s Greek Week. The fraternities and sororities host different competitions around campus with the goal of getting points. One of these competitions is tugs, a massive game of tug-of-war. Campus Pond is turned into a muddy battleground for a few days to see who will emerge as the tugging champions. I went and covered the Delta Zeta sorority.
On another note, my second video on Andre “Maneco” Leite will be up this weekend. It will focus more on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
My online portfolio of still images can be seen by clicking right here and at the bottom of the page in the footer. Here are a few of the photos.
