Kansas University Greek Life has announced Monday as the kickoff to "Pillars Week" for the KU campus and Lawrence community.
The four-day event will sponsor activities that reflect the Greek community's four founding pillars: service, leadership, scholarship and brotherhood/sisterhood.
KU Greek Life consists of four councils: the Panhellenic Association, Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations. Each council will be host to a day's event.
On Monday the Service Pillar will be hosted by the Panhellenic Association.
The event is Rock the Block, a battle-of-the-bands style fundraiser for the Lawrence Food Bank and Habit for Humanity's "House that Greeks Built." Local bands will perform 7 p.m. at Abe & Jake's Landing, 8 E. Sixth St.
A donation of two canned food items per person are requested at the door.
On Tuesday, the Leadership Pillar will be hosted by the National Pan-Hellenic Council. They will have voting booths placed throughout campus for local residents, open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. There will be an election results watch-party at the Kansas Union in Woodruff Auditorium.
