BATON ROUGE – The LSU Greek Board of Directors will round out its final programming
initiative of the semester with the annual 93rd Songfest competition on Sunday, April
27, at 3 p.m. in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The event is open to the public,
with doors opening at 2 p.m.
Songfest originally began as a men’s singing competition. Through the years, it has
evolved into a choreographed dance competition among LSU’s fraternities and sororities,
as well serving as GBOD’s premiere fundraising event.
Thirty chapters have been randomly paired to create 11 ensemble groups. Each group
will perform a choreographed dance routine for five judges. The judges’ scores will
be combined with three bonus point opportunities: T-shirt sales, ticket sales and
a banner competition. The highest scores determine the first, second and third place
winners. There will also be recognition for judges’ awards, including Best Male Performance,
Best Costume and Crowd Appeal.
Songfest presale tickets are $11 and may be purchased in the Athletic Administration
Building or online. Tickets will also be on sale at the door for $15.
Following Songfest, the Kappa Theta Chapter of the National Order of Omega will take the stage to honor individuals and chapters for their success over the last calendar year.
Top awards include Outstanding Chapter President, Outstanding New Member, and Greek Man, Woman and Leader of the Year.
The Greek Board of Directors is established for the expressed purpose of ensuring
the welfare and continued growth and development of the Greek community and to promote
Greek activities for the benefit and enhancement of the Greek community at LSU. The
Greek Board of Directors exists to unify Greek organizations through programs and
to serve as an advisory council to the Greek Life Office in a visionary role to move
the Greek community forward.
