It’s All Greek to PCC—Greek Rush That Is!

At PCC, collegians provide opportunities for students to engage in Christian service, sports, and group outings. The first Friday night of the semester, collegians welcome students through Greek Rush—a time of fun, food, and fellowship. Decorated booths sporting each collegian’s Greek letters, mascot, and theme increased the excitement as freshmen accepted the hospitality of upperclassmen.

Collegian officers attracted new recruits with “free eats” like doughnuts, s’mores, grilled steaks, burgers, and hot dogs. Some collegians showered freshmen with trinkets like glow-in-the-dark bracelets, candy, and Hawaiian leis, while others entertained freshmen with basketball, putt-putt golf, and football games.

At 7:45 p.m., students gathered on steps and sidewalks for the Greek Rush Parade, cheering on motorcycles, sports cars, boats, and police cars—sirens blaring! Collegian members waved from decorative floats and tossed candy to the spectators. The Delta Gamma Rho Bears acquired nine classic British cars from the Panhandle British Car Association for their “Bears Go British!” theme, winning women’s Best Parade Entry and Best Overall. The Kappa Psi Delta Scorpions won men’s Best Parade Entry and Best Overall with their lighted scorpion float. Other floats included a giant rocket, flying phoenix, and flight attendants guiding a jet down the tarmac.

Throughout the event, collegians exemplified a Christian spirit through Bible verses and slogans posted on booths and floats. The Pi Delta Indians themed their float “Run with the Lord,” and the Chi Sigma Cobras carried the banner “Building lives for Christ.”

Providing spiritual refreshment through Christian service activities and creating lasting friendships, PCC collegians invite students to become better acquainted with one another as they focus together on Christ.
