This week's plug in goes to...Gamma Week

Ahhh yes Gamma Week '09. I remember spearheading the many event's that made Gamma Week. I'm glad the undergraduates stay true to their roots and continue the founders' legacy. As much as I would love to participate in the events, I can't; I'll be on vacation. All the events are at Temple University.

Here's a breakdown of this year's Gamma Week:

  • Monday, April 20th-- YOU DON’T KNOW ME…UNTIL YOU KNOW ME.
    Collaboration with AdEL, Esencia Latina, Temple’s Spanish Club & Delta Chi Psi Fraternity, Inc.

    A one-person show that deals with the issues of race, discrimination, violence prevention, personal identity, suicide, gender equity, homophobia, and the emotional pain felt by special education children. In a gripping, fast paced, 75-minute performance, Michael Fowlin slips in and out of nine characters, both male and female, who "share their stories." The characters share their stories in an often humorous, but at times, heartbreaking manner.

    Location: SC 217 B&C @ 7pm

  • Tuesday, April 21st-- ART EXPO

    A program filled with culture. Art from all the different cultures in Latin America will be on display, ranging from a variety of different genres including paintings, poetry/spoken word, and photography.

    Location: SC Atrium @ 7pm

  • Wednesday, April 22nd—WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONARIO?

    An interactive night full of fun and excitement where contestants play “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” with a Latino twist. Contestants must sign up prior to the event in order to participate in what we know will be a competitive night. PRIZES will be given to the winning team!!

    Location: Tuttleman 400AB @ 7pm

  • Thursday, April 23rd-- CITY A BLAZE: The story about Camden 28

    The Camden 28 was a group of "the Catholic left" anti-Vietnam War activists who in 1971 planned and executed a raid on a Camden, New Jersey draft board. The raid resulted in a high-profile trial against the activists that was seen by many as a referendum on the Vietnam War. Joan Riley, a member of the Camden 28, shares with us in an open forum the battles she faced during this time of war. This discussion is also about activism today and how YOUR voice is important. http://www.camden28.org/

    Location: SC 217B @ 7pm

  • Friday, April 24th-- GAMMA POOL NIGHT

    Come out and enjoy a riveting night full of billiards, fun, and shenanigans with the Gammas.

    Location: SC Game Room @ 7pm
And it all ends on Saturday, April 25th at our 17th Annual Founder's Banquet.
