Letters on the Lawn showcases Greek life

Citrus Lawn was the site for this year’s Letters on the Lawn, the annual event where the University’s sororities and fraternities come out to inform the community and prospective members about their values and philanthropy, and ways to get involved.

Each group participating in the Aug. 31 event, displayed their colorful Greek letters, and they hosted interactive games for students and community members. 

The Greek organizations hope to help students to build lifelong relationships and skills such as mentorship, leadership and accountability. 

Their various activities and fundraisers throughout the year include car washes and volunteer work at community centers, among other things. 

“Letters on the Lawn has become a huge tradition here,” said José Forde, junior political science major and Phi Delta Theta member. “(It’s) where we show freshmen that Greek life is very active and involved.” 

“I didn’t have that many friends on campus and wanted to get involved and joining a sorority helped with that,” said Cynthea Roque, sophomore biology major Phi Sigma Sigma member.

“It’s a lot of meeting new people and advocating for what our philanthropy is,” said Briezae Aparicio, president of Phi Sigma Sigma and senior psychology major.  

In addition to the fun and games, there was food and drink provided by Churro Bros.
