Greek Newsletter

September 21st, 2015

The content for this newsletter is created and managed for by the Greek Life office. If you have information you would like to be included in our next issue please visit the bottom of this newsletter for details on how to submit content for future issues.
In the near future this Newsletter will go public to the Greek Community. We are in the process of compiling all the Fraternity and Sorority member emails into one list. Once that is complete future issues of the Greek Newsletter will be sent to members also. This is so we can better educate our community on what is going on each week. Also, we hope it will make it easier on chapter presidents when relaying information to their members.

We ask that you send us information about events you are hosting on campus, philanthropy weeks, or progress that your chapter is having. For example:


  • Delta Tau Delta raising just shy of $3,000 this past weekend through their first ever Dueling Pianos event and dinner auction at Alexanders. Delta Tau Delta also had 67 members registered to volunteer in the JDRF walk on October 4th.

We would like to highlight all chapters however we can, with the goal of improving our our presence on campus. Anything you would like to be provided in the weekly issues of the Greek Newsletter can be sent to: zevans@mail.bradley.edu or bradleygreeks@gmail.com.
