Sigma Chi during Roundup - University of Texas
Why it's great: Via our buddy Yoni: Sigma Chi threw one of the craziest parties I have ever performed at this past year at round up. Immediately when i stepped on stage, the energy of the crowd took over the place. They took raging to a whole new level. Not to mention that texas girls are the hottest.

TDX Beach Party at Union College
Why it's great: "This 24 hour rager is the most magical frat party of the year at Union College. Every spring term, TDX throws their traditional "Beach Party Banger" in late May (due to our trimester schedule) over our school's Alumni Weekend. Early in the morning around 7 AM the youngest TDX brothers (we rush in the fall so there are no spring pledges) are dumping truckloads of sand onto their backyard completely covering the area to give it that beachy feel. They also set up an above ground pool (not a blow up a kiddie pool a legit above ground pool) for people to take their chances in. There are a good 50 people in that pool at a time and I saw at least five guys banging the shit out of some girls in it this past year. They also get a DJ to play at the event that goes all day and all night. The party starts whenever the boys are done setting up so usually around 10 AM and it goes until campus safety shuts it down (usually around 4 AM). At this year's past beach party at around 3 AM, one of my friend's was up on the DJ stage and campus safety came up to her specifically and told her that she had to leave, she asked why just her and they said "we have heard from multiple people around here that you are the life of the party", she applauded campus safety for their reasoning. This is the one party that campus safety understands/accepts that it has no control over, nor do they want to even try and tame it. They just let us do what all college kids should be doing for once in our lives. You also can't beat the weather at that time of year, which a lot of other schools don't get to take advantage of but we do with trimesters. With that being said, students usually have friends come up and visit since everyone else is out of school by then so their is an abnormal amount of people at this party on top of the alumni that are back for the weekend reliving their glory days. I've run into so many random people from my high school at this party in the past years that I'm starting to think they don't even know anyone at Union, but know of the party and just come for it. Of course, the fraternity goes all out with providing alcohol, thanks to their charitable alumni helping their cause. There are endless coolers of TDX's infamous "blackout punch" (nobody will ever know the secret to it, nor do I think we want to know) and of course there are kegs on kegs, which the alumni are very good at making sure of. There is also an abundant amount of drugs being taken and passed around throughout the day and night. The whole student body gets decked out in their finest beach attire and bring all the beach accessories/necessities and end the school year with a bang in the most suiting setting. This is the most fun day/night frat party of the year hands down..."
ATfOam -- Bloomsburg University Block Party
Why it's great: "This event is great because we cram 1300 people into the gravel parking lot behind our frat house, and blast them with a full capacity foam machine. Add that to the beautiful women, HUGE party stage, concert concert sound system & professional DJs, and you have one hell of a fraternity party."
Kappa Sigma Margaritaville -- University of Kansas
Why it's great: "It starts off on a Monday afternoon with thousands of lbs of sand being delivered to the front door. At first, it's mostly just freshman filling up sand bags and walking them down to our fratio and making an outline of the pool. As the week goes on more and more brothers are outside helping build this pool and everyone is having a great time, it really becomes a bonding experience for everyone. So after three or four days of filling sand bags and the walls of the pool are high enough we put one tarp down, layer the bottle of the pool with sand and then another tarp and begin filling it with water. So the day of the party rolls around (usually on stop day) and the massive inflatable slip and slide, and water slide are delivered and inflated. So onto the party part, this is never an open party, and the actual rules are that you have to invite 2+ girls (we have 70-75 guys living in house, and 20-25 active out of house guys, so that's a solid 300 people at the party with a great girl to guy ratio.) Around 2 is when the party gets going, people are starting to get drunk (open bar), and most bros have been pregaming since 10 so everyone's drunk having a good time doing god knows what. (Day always flies by as time does when you're wasted). So around 5 or so you have a bunch of half naked drunk girls and you yourself are hammered hanging out with them and your bros. Now in our fraternity house we basically have group showers, and during the last few years there has been "shower parties." Needless to say this party cannot be described as you really must be there in order to enjoy it. Hope it entertains you all."
