New Appliances Installed in Wright House!

June 12, 2017

A brand new stove/oven and refrigerator have been installed in Wright House!

We wouldn’t have been able to make these purchases without your generous contributions. Now, the Greek community will have an updated space to hold awesome events where lifelong relationships will be built. We can’t wait for our students to return in the fall and put the new appliances to good use.

With the remaining donations, we will be updating some of the furniture in the lounge. Stay tuned for further updates!

You made it happen! Thank you!

March 21, 2017

Wow! We did it! And all because of you. Thank you so much for your support. Your contributions and the time you took to share our message is greatly appreciated. 

Because of you, we will be able to update the stove/oven, refrigerator, and make some updates to the lounge. All this will help our fraternity and sorority community enjoy and utilize Wright House to build interfraternal relationships that will last a lifetime.

We'll send updates as we purchase and install our new appliances. If you're ever on campus and want a tour of the house, just let us know and we can get something scheduled for you. Follow our Fraternity and Sorority Community on Facebook at Carroll University Greek Life and see all of the amazing things our chapters and staff are doing. 

THANK YOU!

 

We can do it! Only 5 days left

March 15, 2017

Wow-this has been such a great opportunity! We are so thankful for the support of our family, friends, alumni, and members. Their contributions have us 76% of the way to our goal! 

Our students are on Spring Break right now, but when they come back to campus, the Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, and Greek Activities Panel will be co-hosting a letter making event in Wright House. There will be food, materials to put letters on clothing, and an opportunity for students to gather, chat, and share their Spring Break stories. It is also leading up to Greek Week! This year's Greek Week theme is "Blast from the Past." Karaoke, Capture the Flag, Dodgeball, and Serenading are on the schedule for the week. Greek Week is always a great time for some fun competition but also meeting many of the members in Greek Life. 

Upgrading our appliances and lounge furniture will only make these relationship building events bigger and better than they've been. Help us reach our goal-ask a brother, sister, parent, friend or alumni to join you in donating to the Wright House Upgrades Fundraiser and show their support for this amazing Greek Life Community. 

Hopefully the next time you hear from us, we will have met our goal!

Only 11 Days Left!

March 09, 2017

The Greek Community is incredibly grateful for all of the support our students, alumni, and advisors have shown toward helping us reach our fundraising goal of $3000. As we begin to approach our deadline, here are a few things that happened in Wright House that in the future will benefit from your contributions:

New Member Retreat: Our Spring New Member Retreat utilizes Wright House for team building, goal setting, and learning about our Greek Community. In the picture below, you can see some of our new members creatively problem solving and working on communication skills. 

Wright House Party for Alcohol Awareness & Education Week: The Greek Life Staff supports our Alcohol Awareness and Education week programming by sponsoring a substance free house party. This event is open to all of campus and provides a safe and enjoyable environment for students to hang out on a Friday night. 

To help students participate by donating smaller amounts of money, we hosted Cupcakes and Coffee in the Wright House Kitchen for those who donated spare change. If we reach our fundraising goal, we may be able to make a Coffee Hour a regular event in Wright House to help members meet each other and relax before or after class. 

Greek Life is about family and friendship. Please take a moment to share our campaign with a brother, sister, friend, or colleague. If each of our current donors were able to get one more $20 donor, we would make our goal!

Thank you again!

Hello friends!

Still over three weeks left in this campaign and we are officially 63% of the way to our goal! We are extremely happy with the support everyone has given and shown for the Greek Community but we still have some more to go. We encourage you all to share the following link so we can reach our goal in time:https://catalyst.carrollu.edu/project/4190. Additionally, if we reach our goal by the end of the campaign (March 20), we will provide a Greek Life Community Buffalo Wild Wings dinner at Wright house to celebrate.

All the best,

Carroll U Greek Life

Week 3!

February 15, 2017

Hello friends!

We are officially into our third week of crowd-funding...can you believe that we are already just over 50% of the way there!? We are so thankful for the 32 separate donors that have contributed to help improve Wright House.

Every Fall our very own Greek Activities Panel (GAP) hosts the annual All-Greek Thanksgiving feast in Wright House, where each of our chapters is assigned a certain traditional dish to serve in a pot-luck style meal. However, due to the outdated amenities in the Wright House kitchen, GAP (who is in charge of serving the meat) is unable to use the oven to cook a traditional turkey, and, in most recent years, has only been able to provide rotisserie chickens. With the money raised through this campaign, a new oven would be used to help complete the traditional All-Greek Thanksgiving meal and provide a welcoming space for those members of Greek Life who are unable to return home and spend Thanksgiving with their families, but give them a new, separate sense of family within the Greek Community here at Carroll.

With your support you can help make this happen. If you can, please spread the word about our Campaign to raise funds for Wright House through email, social media, or even by word of mouth. Any amount of support helps! The following link can be used to share the crowd-funding page: https://catalyst.carrollu.edu/project/4190 

Best wishes,

Carroll University's Greek Life Family

 

Week 2 Update

February 09, 2017

Hello friends!

 

At this point we are just over 1 week into our Campaign to raise funds to upgrade Wright House & we cannot believe the generosity of all those who have donated thus far. Currently we are approximately half-way to our end goal of $3,000, so if you know of anyone who is interested in donating, or if you just want to help spread the word, please share the following link so we can reach as many people as possible: https://catalyst.carrollu.edu/project/4190

This past week in Wright House our 3 Councils had meetings to kick off the semester. Currently, highly anticipated events such as Greek Week, Serenading, and various volunteer and philanthropy events are in the works for the Spring semester. Additionally, the Panhellenic Council hosted a social event for our three sororities on campus in Wright House where they had snacks (including a chocolate fountain), socialized, and prepared for informal recruitment for the season. 

One of our hopes with the money raised is to purchase a new refrigerator with a built-in filtration system so that students can drink clean, pure water, as currently, there is no access to clean, filtered water in Wright House.

Again, we cannot thank you all for your support of our wonderful Greek Community!

Thank you!

Good afternoon Donors,

 

The Greek Community cannot thank you all enough for such a great start for our first day of the campaign to raise funds for Wright House. We are so thankful that we have already raised approximately 1/3 of our overall goal. That being said we still have a ways to go to meet our goal # so if you can share the catalyst link that would be amazing!

 

Again, thank you all again for your outpouring of generosity!
