In the midst of several fraternity scandals, there is Georgia College’s Interfraternity Council school supply drive and band party.
The event was held at the Oconee River Greenway on Aug. 20, from 5:30-9 p.m.
In lieu of cash, fraternity brothers paid in school supplies to get into the band party. The supplies were then donated to Baldwin County students.
Most fraternities pitched their tents at the Oconee Greenway to give those considering rushing a second look at the different options. They collected seven large garbage bins of school supplies for the Baldwin County Schools.
“One of the most important things to me is the collaboration aspect of it,” said Barrett Cross, a junior management information systems major. “I do think people should care about this event because whether it was Greek or not, it was a way to unify the campus and the surrounding area of Baldwin County.”
It brought students, Greek and non-Greek alike, together to help the citizens of Milledgeville.
