Members of Belmont’s Alpha Sigma Tau sorority and Alpha Tao Omega fraternity could be seen chatting, laughing and playing outside McWhorter Hall on Wednesday, all around an always-occupied teeter-totter.
The two organizations came together to keep a teeter-totter going for 36 straight hours and raise awareness for Blood:Water Mission, an organization that fights AIDS and builds clean water sources in Africa.
Both Greek groups set up tables and tents nearby the teeter-totter handing out pamphlets on the charitable organization while trading food and baked goods for cash donations.
“It’s always a blast to come out here,” junior ATO member Luke Searcy said. “You get to hang out with friends, music’s playing, there’s good food. It’s always a well-rounded, fun time.”
