Although it’s one of Heidelberg’s many long-standing traditions, this fall’s Opening Convocation – the official beginning of the 2020-21 academic year – was like no other in history.

Like so many other events during the pandemic, Convocation shifted to virtual, presented to incoming students during their AIM Hei classes this morning and simultaneously during “watch parties” in Wickham Great Hall and Herbster Chapel.

The brotherhood and sisterhood of Heidelberg’s Greek groups is immeasurable. So when the campus closed in March because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they were left with a void. But it didn’t last long.

Like many of Heidelberg’s student organizations, the Greek groups and their executive board have stayed connect with each other with virtual weekly meetings. A big challenge came to life this week when all 10 Greek groups participated in the traditional Greek Week activities – this year on social media.
