The crowd cheers and claps for the fraternities and sororities after they perform a song during the first round of the Greek Week karaoke tryouts on April 2, 2013 on Central Campus.

One of the most awaited weeks in the sorority and fraternity community is here: Greek Week. Greek Week is a week-long competition throughout the sorority and fraternity chapters including sports, arts and philanthropic components.

After kicking off the week on Central Campus with karaoke and finishing Sunday night with competitions at Lied, Greek Week is in full swing.

While Greek Week is all fun and games, it also means free food. While a majority of the food will be located on Central Campus, Food Truck Friday offers some variety to the menu.

The Polar Bear Plunge at Iowa State is one of the largest donors to the Special Olympics, Weaver said.
