Georgia Tech's 2018 Greek Week was April 2 - 9! This year, 27 fraternities and 10 sororities competed in over 30 events. We had field day classics like Egg Toss and Dizzy Bat, sport tournaments like Flag Football and Dodgeball, and other mainstays like Tug and Greek Sing. We had a team of 15 people working hard to make it the best Greek Week ever. I was our Technology Chair this year, and I got the chance to work on some pretty cool stuff! I worked with our new Tech Committee to build out mobile-friendly web projects like a new Calendar website, and I led the charge on organizing our first-ever Greek Week hackathon!
First Greek Week Hackathon
I'm a big fan of hackathons (if you couldn't tell). Greek Week has lots of sporting events that test physical prowess, but we also have plenty of other events that cover all sorts of different interests and skills. We assess our event line-up every year to see if we want to make any cuts or additions, so this year I lobbied for us to host a hackathon. We got a room booked, ordered some food, invited judges, and were ready to go!
