Last month, I attended Lambda Chi Alpha’s Watermelon Bust. Held at Southgate Field, and consisted of a bunch of teams competing in a variety of games to determine a winner at the end. As expected, there was great support from almost all Greek organizations on campus. Pi Kappa Alpha, Alpha Tau Omega, Phi Sigma Sigma, Pi Lambda Phi, Gamma Phi and even a sorority from University of Central Florida (Chi Omega) and a Lambda Chi Alpha local alumni group brought teams to participate. The games offered at the Watermelon Bust included crab watermelon soccer, tug of war in a watermelon pit and watermelon toss. All these games were outrageously creative and original. Not only was this a fun event, but it was for a good cause: tons of foods were donated to the American Food Bank.
Within Florida Tech, Greek life is perhaps the largest community of students that constantly offers activities for students. These events can vary from BBQ by the pool, to beach cleanups, to ice skating at the Space Coast Iceplex. Greeks at Florida Tech always find a way to make a great weekend in Melbourne and the surrounding cities. You can see what Greek Life is up to by clicking here.
