On Tuesday, April 9, eight Greek sororities and fraternities on campus plan to hold an All-Greek Cleanup, helping local residents with yard cleanup and odd jobs. They plan to work from 4 to 7:30 p.m.
Also, the Panhellenic Council representing the Greek sororities Delta Zeta, Alpha Phi and Sigma Sigma Sigma will be collecting personal hygiene products for women and children from April 12-19. All items will be donated to the local Bridge to Hope shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Collection boxes will be in residence halls, the Memorial Student Center and two local stores, the Dollar Tree and Marketplace Foods.
The sororities and fraternities have completed many other service projects and fundraisers throughout the academic year benefiting local and national organizations.
On Wednesday, April 10, the Niche student-run retail store will present the April Showers spring fashion show at 12:15 p.m. in the second-floor Heritage Hall lobby next to the store.
Students will model the show’s spring line of clothing and accessories.
“The fashion show is always fun and a great way to market the store and let people know where we are,” said student Samantha Gehrke, of Amherst, the show director.
The show will be run by about 20 retail merchandising and management students who are working at the Niche this semester as part of a retail program practicum, led by Assistant Professor Adel Mekraz.
Admission is free. For VIP seating, which includes a gift bag, email Gehrke.
Another fashion show, Silhouettes, with clothing made by apparel, design and development students, is Thursday, April 18, and Saturday, April 20, at the Memorial Student Center.
