Sorority life has a negative stereotype of having parties that are full of three things that are no-no’s during rush week: boys, booze and bars. Kappa Kappa Gamma at Drake University has been changing Greek life, one event at a time. I know, I know. Sounds pretty lame, right? But trying out some alcohol-free events will not only make your sorority look great to the University, but it will also enhance relationships with other fraternities and sororities in a positive way. Follow CL’s guide to classy, sober events and you will be having fun in no time.
1.) Comedy clubs: There is nothing people like to do more together than laugh. Check out the local comedy scene and you will be sure to find a good tour coming your way. Many major cities have Funny Bone Comedy Clubs, which are great for accommodating large numbers and also serves a full menu, which will keep your guests full and happy.
2.) Local sports game: Every state may not have a major league baseball team, but many have minor leagues that
are not only cheap to watch, but also a lot of fun to cheer for. This is perfect for the fall or spring when the weather is nice enough to be outside. These are also great exchanges to schedule with fraternities because it combines two of their favorite things: sports and hanging out with sorority girls.
3.) Haunted houses: Considering Halloween is just over the horizon, haunted houses are a great way to hang outwith friends and maybe even clutch onto that cute frat boy you’ve had your eye on this fall. Haunted houses can get pricy individually, but many will give discounts to large groups. Want to take the event up a notch? Plan it around Halloween and make everyone dress in costume. The excitement of the holiday mixed with the frightening sights of witches, chainsaws and mad doctors will ensure this event is an instant hit.
These may not seem exciting at first, but try a few out and see how much fun sober events can be. The social calendar will not only be significantly cheaper, but it will also allow everyone to have fun getting to know each other in the best way possible.
