Pep Supper is a College of Charleston tradition in which Fraternities and Sororities join forces to raise donations and boost pep through a series of friendly competitions.
Each organization competes against each other in three categories. To start off the competition, each house proudly waves themed banners from their houses, then they perform immaculately choreographed and energetic dances and finally. Most importantly, they raise donations for the Lowcountry Food Bank.
All of the hard work from this fall paid off last Thursday when they performed these signature dances in TD Arena, and the winners of each event were publicly announced.
While all of the Teams had creative and lively dances, it was ultimately Alpha Delta Pi who took the win for the sororities!
Sydney Moreno, a senior majoring in English with a concentration in writing, rhetoric and publication, was on the winning team. “It’s actually sort of strange that I chose to be in the Pep Supper dance becasue I’m a senior,” said Moreno. “The sororities put so much work in, that it feels meaningful and enjoyable when the actual [event] finally arrives.”
Taking the title for most pounds of food raised for the foodbank was Kappa Alpha Theta. In total, College of Charleston’s Greek life raised a staggering number of over 500,000 pounds of food, and Theta made up a meaningful part of it.
Celie Shankman, a sophomore marketing major, is a proud Kappa Alpha Theta. “My sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, was successful in raising the most donations because we focus on what (we believe) is the most important part…A lot of people have negative views on Greek Life and I hope to show that, through the 500,000+ pounds of food we raised, that our community wished to create change.”
While I am personally not in Greek life at College of Charleston, I had a wonderful time watching them perform and seeing what Greek life was all about. Congratulations to the winners and to everyone for coming together for a very worthy cause.
