The Greek Senate presented us with Greek Olympics this past March. The Greek Olympics featured many different fraternities and sororities, competing head-to-head in different sports and activities. Participating in these games helped to strengthen the bond between Greek Life and Kean University students.

“Greek Olympics is a trail of games that our various Greek organizations participate in a two-week time span,” said Caroline Antonio, coordinator for student involvement. “We host different competitive games from basketball, soccer, dodgeball, game nights, volleyball and various other activities. We ended our olympics with Lambda Tau Omega hosting their Greek God and Goddess pageant.” 

Greek Senate is the embodiment of Greek life here at Kean. With 15 fraternities, 15 sororities and one co-ed organization, Greek Life collaboratively works to uphold the ideals of scholarship, service, leadership, campus, involvement and brotherhood/sisterhood.

“Greek life decided to create these types of events to promote team bonding among Greeks,” said Natalia Munoz, member of Delta Phi Epsilon. 

To continue upholding these ideals, Greek Olympics was formed to bring Greek Life and the Kean community together. Many activities were held for these weeks, consisting of a combination of sports and other activities. The schedule of events for the Greek Olympics were as follows: 

  • Monday, March 21, 2022, 6 p.m., MSC Outdoor Courts - Basketball
  • Tuesday, March 22, 2022, 7 p.m., Greek Lounge - Greek Trivia
  • Wednesday, March 23, 2022, 6 p.m., Sandpit - Volleyball
  • Thursday, March 24, 2022, 6 p.m., MSC Turf - Soccer
  • Friday, March 25, 2022, 6 p.m., MSC Game Room - MSC Games
  • Monday, March 28, 2022, 6 p.m., MSC Turf - Kickball and Dodgeball 
  • Tuesday, March 29, 2022, 3:30 p.m., Cougars Den - Greek Sing
  • Wednesday, March 30, 2022, 3:30 p.m., MSC Lawn - Goofy Events

Events like these are very important for student involvement at Kean. They help bring the communities closer together in a fun and engaging way. Even though it is a competition, Kean students and Greek Life are uniting by participating in the activities. 

“Greek Olympics are important for people who are and are not a part of Greek Life because it provides an opportunity to get to know other people who they may not have a chance to meet/work within their everyday school day,” said Antonio. 

For any questions about Greek Life and any of their upcoming events, interested pupils can email for more information.

“The Greek Olympics biggest takeaway was the sense of community and comradery that we were able to see with the organizations who participated. It was great to see our organizations eager to participate,” said Antonio.
