La Trobe University Greek Society
About Us
LUGS is a rapidly growing greek/australian social and cultural club that seeks to unite the greek/australian youth at La Trobe University. We collaborate with other affiliated NUGAS clubs and universities to bring you a dynamic and exciting range of events, on and off campus.
As young Hellenes in the diaspora we want to ensure that our connection to our culture, traditions, history and language never fades. We aim to give other Greeks and philhellenes the opportunity to immerse themselves in our culture through various events and activities throughout the year. With La Trobe University being the only remaining Victorian university to still offer a totally comprehensive Greek Language program (levels 1-10), it is of the utmost importance to LUGS to ensure that the love for the Greek language is kept alive amongst our peers and the younger generations.
While we are definitely about having fun and enjoying the entertaining and 'lighter-hearted' aspects of our culture, we definitely haven't dismissed the importance of involving ourselves and supporting our wider community to ensure that our traditions and Hellenism is kept alive for future generations. We both want and need to give back to the people who have kept alive these traditions for us – and continue to keep alive – for us to enjoy so far away from Greece herself.
