The Multicultural Greek Council showed off their moves Friday evening at their first event of 2018, MGC Stomps.

Colorado State University has the largest MGC in Colorado, made up of six sororities and four fraternities. Most groups showed up to the event to display their creativity.

The event provided entertainment, but it was also successful at educating the audience about MGC and what they represent.

“I came to watch the event just to see what MGC was all about; I was very excited,” said Leslie Valles, a freshman political science major. “Everything was very fun and very energetic. I think this event was important to have because I think a lot of people aren’t aware of all of these organizations that are on campus, and this event was a fun way to just get them out there.”

Many attendees felt like Greek life was for them after the event and were excited to join in the future.

“The event was such a welcoming and comfortable environment to be surrounded by so much multiculturalism,” said Yuridia Lozano, a freshman social work major. “I didn’t know that there were this many organizations at CSU, and I was even thinking about joining one because the event was so good.”

Many of the attendees said that the presentation of multiculturalism touched them personally.

“I’ve always been interested in frats especially MGC, and I just feel like this event brings people together with different backgrounds.” Christian Renteria, a freshman sociology major, said. “It’s just a space where you can get together with different people who look just like you and feel safe. It’s a piece of home away from home.”
