Fraternity and Sorority Mixer Ideas

Pool Party


My favorite fraternity and sorority mixer idea is a pool party, because there aren’t many things better in life than hanging out at the pool with pretty girls.

It should be criminal if you are in a fraternity and don’t plan this mixer at least once during your college career.  It can be that much fun.

Start by reserving a pool at a local apartment complex. Then all you need is food to grill and a cooler for refreshments. This is guaranteed to be a great time.

Community Service Mixer

Your fraternity should do community service events.  But it would be more fun if you did them as a joint event with a sorority. This really applies to all types of service events. By killing two birds with one stone you ensure a better turnout and everyone having a good time.

Dress-up Themed Mixers

Another one of my favorite fraternity and sorority mixer ideas is a dress-up themed mixer that is generally a closed event at a rented out establishment or at the fraternity house. However, there needs to a theme to the mixer or the sorority will think the event is lame and unoriginal.

Because of that, you just need to add a dress code to the event. Again, the possibilities are endless. You can be cops and robbers, cowboys and Indians, dress from the 70s, black or white, or even have a toga party.

Remember to keep the sorority in mind when you are in the planning stages of the mixer. While the fraternity may think an underwear or lingerie party is a great idea, the sorority might not…

Casino Night

This is another great fraternity and sorority mier idea. Issue everyone a set number of chips at the beginning of the night. Have several table games set up and let everyone play. Be sure to let everyone know that they can be cashed in at the end of the night for prizes.

The more creative the fraternity can be with the prizes the better the event will be. Sure there can be prices that people want like a digital camera or iPad. However, it is better to have prizes such as members of the fraternity/sorority wash your car or one date with a brother/sister of your choice.

This could be a lot of fun with a little creativity.

  1. When I went to visit my sister at her sorority at University of Wisconsin a year ago, they had an 80’s party and at the door they gave out neon teal Fanny Packs with sunglasses. It was a great spin and fun prop for an epic wheels off 80s party. I tried to find that combo but couldn’t so I just made them and have a website for them. Check them out. partypacksam.com.
