SAE Kappa Beach -- Syracuse University
Why it's great: "Beach themed initiation party for Kappa spring pledge class. Exclusively for SAE and Kappa. Kappa is known as the best sorority on campus. The girls come wearing little to nothing. SAE only has 65 brothers so it is an incredible guy to girl ratio. SAE doesn't have a huge house so everyone is closer and all over each other. The smaller house also allows for an incredible set up. Tons of sand covering the entire floor, waterfall down the stairs, pool, tiki-bar, paper mache volcano with smoke machine inside of it, all of the walls are covered by white bedsheets then spray painted over by talented guys in the fraternity, front porch is turned into a cabana by covering the outsides with white bedsheets and putting couches and a hammock outside and there is a stripper pole on a platform and a roped cage on a platform on dancefloor. A tradition is one brother dresses up in a black rope and silver body paint and performs the "dance with the devil". The song sex, drugs and house is played while the brother sings the song and everyone rages. In the pool girls wrestle and give brothers lap dances (before my time I heard they had taken their tops off)."
Tailgating - University of Iowa
Why it's great: "Tailgate party before Iowa vs University of Northern Iowa football game, Fall 2012. A closed off parking lot packed shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of people and mountains of kegs. We combine for the biggest tailgate in the country at the newly crowned number one party school in the nation. Last year we had over 40 kegs and hundreds of gallons of jungle juice every week. The party starts before 7am and all the kegs are emptied before the game starts when all greek life takes over downtown Iowa City where the bar scene is absolutely nuts during the games."
Kappa Sigma Island Orgy at University of Arkansas
Why it's great: "All day/night rager where the booze never runs out and the girls don't stop pouring in. The whole house, yard and apartments (seperate building on the property for juniors/seniors KEs to live) is decked out like an island.The day party consists of enough crawfish/gumbo to feed a small army and enough beer to kill that small army. As well as corn hole and volleyball all in our back yard. Brice Lee played for us on the stage last year. The night party is a bigger concert that has included yung joc and juicy j this year."
FIJI Islander -- University of Delaware
Why it's great: "Huge day drink after a week of raising money for our philanthropy, island themed, girls get lays, blaring music and natty lights all day, volcano funnel, ice luge, hired DJ, packed back yard, lines for entry down the street. Hundreds of cases of beer, sun-dresses, beer bongs, ice luges. This is just a glimpse of what happened during FIJI islander in Spring 2012. When they place "Shout", by the Isley Brothers, it inspired a massive beer shower/fight. It happens at every day drink that you find FIJI brothers at from UD. I don't know what it is about that song. The rest of the day went along with beer bongs from our volcano beer bong tower. Ice luge races with girls, each of them fighting just to get a pair of free Knockarounds. It was just an awesome day full of just alcohol driven chaos. Always is and forever will be."
"Every year, our chapter hosts a week long philanthropy event called “FIJI Islander,” a tradition for every FIJI chapter. The week was sponsored by Knockaround Sunglasses and Monster and the festivities included volleyball and flag football where each sorority competed for a chance to win various prizes. This year we donated our proceeds to The USO. To celebrate a successful week, everything culminates into one of the biggest day drinks of the year. The dager had performances by Phlobus, more than 100 cases, and a working Volcano decked out with Beer Bongs. All the guests received a pair of Knockaround Shades and a bit of a sunburn. As seen in the pictures, it went pretty well."
SAE Jungle Party at University of Arizona
Why it's great: "What you get when you have 150 guys 600 girls and 65,000 gallons of water? The answer is Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s Jungle party. In a school that is famous for its pool parties, there is one that still reigns supreme. Jungle party is an elaborately operation that takes weeks to put build and put together. It's complete with an extravagant tree house, waterfall, swim-up bar, a massive stage, and a variety of other decorations that leave you feeling like you're really in the Amazon. The girls are guaranteed stay wet from the moment they enter the party through the water slide until the moment they leave. he brothers of SAE had their choice between hundreds of hot girls rocking nothing but their bikinis and sunglasses. At some point during this blowout, almost every man there had to stop and ask themselves, “Did I die and go to heaven?”
"1. The ratio...there's about 170 guys in my fraternity and we had 600 girls lined up to get into Jungle Party. Talk about girls fighting over guys.
2. You're partying with 170 of your best friends. You know EVERY guy at the party, so you can go as crazy as you want.
3. Pledges build the whole thing (takes months), and clean it up afterwards (also takes months). And still totally worth it."
