Greek Organizations + Library = A Good Partnership

A large portion of the third floor at Bracken Library is known as the “Greek floor” because so many members of Ball State’s sororities and fraternities meet there to study and work on projects. There is also a log book at the circulation counter for members to sign so a record is maintained by the sororities and fraternities.

In 2006, we created posters with several sorority and fraternity members shown using resources at Bracken. The posters added color and interest to the walls, and the idea went over well with members of the Greek community. We are scheduling new photo sessions with the fraternities and sororities of to update our 24”x36” posters in Bracken Library.

Brittany Blake, a member of Sigma Kappa sorority, who also works as an intern with the Office of Student Life, promotes Greek life on the Ball State campus. She is helping to organize the photo shoot. In the future, Brittany would like to have a poster recognizing those in Greek organizations who have achieved a 3.5 GPA or better.

“The third floor is a popular area with Greeks,” she said. “I come here with my sorority sisters to work on projects and get things done and I want to think of ways I can promote the library to others.”
