In just a month, all Central Michigan University Greeks will compete in Mock Rock, the final event of Greek Week.

Mock Rock is a dance competition where each team will perform a 10 minute, choreographed dance. This year’s theme is Battle of the Bands, so the teams will be performing music from their selected bands.

Those bands include: Maroon 5, Panic at the Disco, QUEEN, Jackson 5, Pussycat Dolls, The Cheetah Girls, Jonas Brothers and the Black Eyed Peas.

“What I am most looking forward to in mock rock this year is being more hands-on than I ever have been in this process,” said senior Julia Nachman. “I have always loved Greek Week because it is such a fun way to give back. My favorite thing about this event is having the chance, as a Greek Community, to come together and do something that benefits Isabella County, right here where we all live!”

The event will take place on March 26 at 6:30 p.m. in McGuirk Arena. Doors will open promptly at 6 p.m. and a $5 donation is encouraged.

“I’m extremely excited. This is my favorite event of the year,” said senior Ryan Ziegalmann. “I look forward to seeing my brothers put in the extra effort for such a large event, as well as getting to interact with, and meet, all the members of two different Greek organizations!”

This week long event happens every spring semester. Greeks come together to raise money for two philanthropies. This year’s philanthropies are Humane Animal Treatment Society and Coalition of Kindness, which are the four nonprofit organizations located in the Strickler Center.

“I’m really excited to watch the hard work of the Greek community come together. Being paired with another sorority and a fraternity has given us the unique opportunity to share more ideas and make a whole story to show our support for the philanthropies,” said senior Kathryn Shaw.
