UWO Fraternities and Sororities Get REAL

get real greeks

We released a new video!

It was filmed at the University of Western Ontario and features many active members of the Greek community.

These young people are making a difference in eliminating homophobia within their social circle. In the video the members share their personal stories surrounding homophobia. Each person shares a story that is very heartwarming and inspiring. Some have had brothers or sisters come out to them, while some have had to come out to their chapters. Either way, the response from the other members of the chapters was nothing less than amazing.

It’s an uplifting video full of laughs and great soundbites all centring around the fact that sexual orientation doesn’t matter. You were chosen to be a part of a sorority or a fraternity because of the person you are, not who you choose to split dessert with or who you grab onto when there’s a battle scene in Game of Thrones.

Because really, who doesn’t need someone to hold onto during that show?

So, the Western Greeks definitely Gets REAL! Do you?

Check out the video below and let us know what you think in the comment section!

Get REAL & S-Trip! are officially PARTNERS! Life is good.

That’s what’s up. Get REAL on trips. Get REAL represented by S-Trip! reps. Get REAL represented in all high schools and campuses that have an S-Trip! presence. And the creativity and brainpower of a phenomenal, successful company that is full of young people who truly want to make a difference and change the world.

Could not be happier. This is the start of something special. Special thanks to Neil Duffy (University & College Coordinator); Lauren Vandervoort (Marketing Manager); Jay Hamilton (Marketing Director); Alex Handa (President), and Mike Meehan (Videographer) for his filming! And of course Andrei, Bailey, Val and everyone else for their awesome cameos.

Time to celebrate.

Get REAL had the pleasure of visiting Malvern Collegiate Institute (in the Beaches, Toronto) for a second time this year – this time for a full assembly. Big thanks goes to the presenters MacKenzie Herd, Chris Studer, and Kevin Hennessey, Mr. Izzo for organizing, and Paola Studer for some great photography. It was a great presentation and one that really resonated well with the students! We look forward to being back next year!
