Olympus 2011

By May 7, 2011Blog


A light drizzle covered the field and sweat was dripping down people’s faces, but everyone carried a smile on their face. On May 7th, 2011, several organizations of the United Greek Council gathered at Magnuson Park to engage in friendly competition through a series of games and events. The events ranged from the intensive tug-of-war to icebreakers such as the human knot; where members within the group twist and climb over each other to untangle themselves before the other team does. These events meant to promote a sense of camaraderie between the organizations through some light-hearted fun. The event was a success and ended with a barbecue provided by the executive members of the UGC. The brothers of Lambda Phi Epsilon want to thank everyone who came out and participated in Olympus.
