What Is SDT Greek Grind?
For the past eighteen years, Sigma Delta Tau Greek Grind has remained the largest and most successful Greek philanthropic event on the University of Georgia’s campus. All 19 Panhellenic sororities on UGA’s campus come together every October to compete in an exhilarating dance competition to benefit Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA), Sigma Delta Tau’s national philanthropy. This incredible night of entertainment gets bigger and better each year as the Panhellenic community competes for monetary donations to go towards their own philanthropies of choice, and the extremely sought-after title of SDT Greek Grind Champions.
How Does It Work?
Every sorority organizes a group of 20 to 30 members to represent their sorority and dance in our event. In addition, each sorority chooses one boy from a fraternity to represent them in the always hilarious boys dance. The sororities, and the UGA Red Hotz, compete in a live performance held at the Classic Center, hosted by a celebrity (Melissa Gisoni, host of last season's SDTGG, shown to the right) and each team is judged based on predetermined factors, including performance, costume, theme incorporation, and originality.
