Gamma Eta Week 2014: Bleed Purple and Teal

March 25, 2014

Power of Diversity in the University of Arkansas Student Union

It’s a very little known fact, but Gamma Etas do indeed bleed purple and teal. Gamma Chapter at the University of Arkansas made believers out of naysayers with their week of Gamma Eta celebration, showcasing their passion and dedication to the sisterhood.

Even in comparison to the multiculturalism of the national sisterhood, Gamma Chapter is very diverse, with sisters from Indian, Korean, African American, Vietnamese, Filipino, Caucasian, Hmong, Hispanic, Uzbek and European backgrounds. It’s no surprise that the climax of Gamma Eta Week at the University of Arkansas was an event called “Power of Diversity”.

Power of Diversity celebrated the diversity and unity of Gamma Eta, honoring the sisterhood’s respective pillars. The event was held in the Student Union, consisting of stations that each represented a subset of ethnic backgrounds. At each station, a sister had an activity ready, from henna tattoos to board games that engaged passing students. “It was great getting to see how the campus reacted to us as a sorority,” said Porlai Lor, Public Relations Chair of Gamma Chapter, of her first time hosting Gamma Eta Week. “[Power of Diversity] shows how different Gamma Eta is and how we unite with each other.”

Another one of Gamma Chapter’s successful events, “Women, Feel the Power Through Your Veins”, welcomed members of the Greek community to compete in a quiz bowl on topics of women empowerment. Representatives of Tau Beta Sigma, Phi Iota Alpha and Sigma Iota Alpha attended the event, supporting the ladies.

Great job Gamma Chapter! We are looking forward to your future events!
