Cornell’s
Greek Week the past two years have fallen on the weekend of the Jewish

Holiday,
Rosh Hashanah.  Cornell is 35% Jewish and
Greek Life at Cornell is probably at least 50%. This causes a major conflict
for the Pan-Hellenic Association and everyone involved in the Greek week
extravaganza.

                No one
participates in Greek Week.

                Maybe
that’s an exaggeration, but it’s not.

No one participates in Greek Week.

There’s a way to change this
though, but no one seems to want to listen. I made a suggestion last year to
change Greek Week to the week leading up to Homecoming.

That’s what real schools do.

People get all amped for their
football team (even if they do suck!) and they get drunk and excited and want
to participate in sporting events. It would get their blood running Big Red! Cornell,
Big Red pride. Woooooo!

But that doesn’t happen.

No one at Cornell can participate
during the week because school takes over our lives.

I know I wouldn’t be able to.

That causes a major problem.

Actually, not really.

Make Greek Week the same weekend as
Homecoming. That way Homecoming can be a part of Greek Week!

Ta Da!

Also it would increase the attendance
of the Homecoming Football game. Sorority or Fraternities members who attend
any sporting event of Homecoming, get points etc, etc. And instead of the Greek
Week shirts being generic they would be individualized for teams.

Crazy, I know.

Well, maybe next year.
