This year's fall Homecoming Greek Exhibition signified the celebration of Greek Life at Georgia State. This year was a first for the annual exhibition, as the Greek Stepshow competition is usu- ally held during the spring semester. Most of the Greek organizations step, stroll or dance, and the exhibition is an event where they can have fun while giving their fellow students the opportunity to see who they are.
The Greek Exhibition is a small pre- view of what's to come in the spring. It's an event where the students can have a great time and mingle with their fellow student body. It also gives the different Greek organizations an opportunity to participate in Homecoming events, while allowing students to possibly gain an in- terest in joining a Greek organization.
"Before this event, there wasn't any Greek participation during Homecom- ing and they felt sort of left out. This year was a way to reach out to the Greeks and to give them an opportunity to be a part of the Homecoming events. We want to make this event bigger and better every year. Everyone's participation and patron- age will help the event to be a success.", said Tre'von Williams, Journalism Major and the creator of the Greek Exhibition.
Originally there were six Greek or- ganizations participating, unfortunately two groups had to drop out due to unfore- seen circumstances. The Greek organiza- tions that performed at the event were the Zeta Phi chapter of Delta Sigma Theta sorority, the Pi Alpha chapter of Phi Beta Sigma fraternity, the Theta Beta chapter of Phi Mu sorority, and the Zeta Theta chapter of Omega Psi Phi fraternity. Wil- liams hopes to have even more Greek par- ticipation at next year's event and maybe even some performers.
Joadane Clerveau, a junior and Mar- keting major, enjoyed the program and looks forward to what's in store for next year. "The Greek Exhibition is setting the stage for a traditional Homecoming event, which is exclusive to the Greek organiza- tions. I can't wait until next year's Exhibi- tion."
There was a huge turnout for the event and some students even had a chance to get free Homecoming t-shirts.
There were also a few impromptu dance competitions and a special performance by the new GSU step team, P2. P2 brought the house down with several different step routines, and that was only a snippet of what they have in store.
The Homecoming candidates were also in attendance, and had the opportu- nity to introduce themselves to the crowd. The candidates gave their name, major and the groups that they were a part of on campus; as well as why they should be chosen to represent Georgia State. Many reasons were given, such as involvement
in organizations on campus, dreams of al- ways being a princess, as well as a love for Georgia State.
For this to be the first annual Prefix Greek Exhibition, it was very well exe- cuted. The Exhibition had a huge turnout by the students of Georgia State as well as other neighboring colleges. The event's founder promises next year's event to be 10 times better, and we look forward to what the Greeks will do when it's their turn to hit the stage.
