By the end of this week, the Central Michigan University Greek community will have left a mark on campus for years to come.
In between Warriner Hall and Grawn Hall, a 12-foot circle will be constructed in the ground, with the letters and founding date of approximately 30 fraternities, sororities and multicultural organizations on campus.
The circle is expected to be completed by Friday.
Alpena senior and Alpha Sigma Phi President Nick Stepaniak has been involved with the project since last fall.
This week kicks off the annual Greek Week when fraternities and sororities unite for a week full of events and to raise money for charity.
This year, proceeds will be donated to help local 13-year-old leukemia patient Logan MacGregor.
“We wanted to directly impact someone here locally on Central’s campus,” said Jesse Pifko, Interfraternity Council vice president of public relations.

Delta Chi fraternity has been suspended awaiting resolution of issues regarding their roster with the Office of Student Life.
Interfraternity Council Vice President of Public Relations Jesse Pifko, a Warren junior, said the suspension came after Delta Chi had been previously warned their roster was inaccurate.
"I have full confidence that Delta Chi will adhere to the Office of Student Life's recommendation and clear things up before Greek Week comes around," Pifko said.
The suspension would currently keep Delta Chi from participating in Intramural Sports and Greek Week, the latter of which begins April 15.
Pending the submission of an approved, accurate roster to the Office of Student Life, the suspension will be lifted and all privileges restored.
Pifko said the issue is not one that could result in the revocation of the fraternity's charter, but that all privileges requiring a roster will be revoked indefinitely, pending approval of a new roster.

Jeff Pickler, who has worked as the city's code enforcement officer for more than 14 years, said "This isn't a one-time litter pick-up.
