For many university students across the nation, the idea of Greek life on a college campus shows images of memorable socials, endless laugh, and a lifetime of sisterhood. As freshmen find out every year, recruitment is a long process. But at the same day, rushing for sororities is a social and fun experience that you’re likely to remember for the rest of your life, so you know you’ll do your best to attain next year’s events just as memorable. Having great sorority party themes for your socials is very important, so choose carefully.
For the dames who have already gone through the recruitment process, coordinating the events for this year’s socials can be a challenge. Coming up with an original idea is hard enough, but finding ways to involve your current members and members of other houses can require quite a lot of planning on your portion. You’ll want your topic to be a make, of course, but the ultimate goal is that everyone has a great time.
If you need a bit of inspiration for your socials, hitting up Pinterest for a variety of unique and fun themes never disillusions. You can incorporate your topic into the food you serve, the clothes you wear, the decorations you put up, and the activities you do. As long as everyone is having a good time and getting to know each other, you’ve done your job. If you need a jump start on your planning, here are 10 ideas for a rocking sorority social.
1. Daisy Dukes And Cowboy Boots

A western topic is classic, but can be given your own special twisting. Have your guests show up in cloths, boots, and denim so they’ll fit in with your cowboy and cowgirl decoration. This theme is easy to incorporate into activities, snacks, and favors.
2. Toga Party

Toga parties are a fun college tradition that you don’t want to miss out on. Give your members and pledges a chance to experience this once-in-a-lifetime party by throwing your own. You can have a DIY day when you make all of the decor, too.

Practically everybody owns a pair of jeans at the least, so everyone will have something to wear to your denim-themed social. A quick journey to a textile store is all you really need to get the decoration for your event, so get to it. You can maintain things casual with this theme, which is a big plus.
4. Back To The 90 s

If you want to take a trip back in time, channel your inner 90 s child for your next social. You can raid your closet for the perfect attire. Set someone in charge of a jammin’ playlist of the hitting songs of the 90 s, and the ambiance will be complete.
5. Pool Party

Whether or not you have a pool available to you, you can have a rocking pool party. Grab some inflatable rafts and your favorite beach towels, and you’re already halfway there. A summer party can be fun any time of year.
6. School Or Sorority Colors

If you need a simple topic for your next event, only follow the colour scheme of your school or sorority home. Buying party essentials in solid colourings isn’t difficult, and putting together an outfit should be easy. It’s a simple topic for your guests to follow, too, which will be much appreciated.

Technically, you can turn any fandom into a super fun party topic, but who doesn’t love? You can dress in your favorite house colourings and name your drinks after spells. There are endless prospects with a topic as magical as this, so let yourselves get creative.
8. Night At The Museum
— Jade Pinkett (@ JadieS0 0korean) March 3, 2013
This theme is unique enough that your party will stand out amongst the masses, but your guests won’t be too challenged when they’re trying to find a costume. Anything in history is fair game at this mixer, so go wild. Unusual outfits are a great reason to break the ice, too, so your guests will be sure to mingle.

If you’re looking for something a little brighter, try a neon theme. The extreme colours will appear super bright during the day, and super cool at night under black illuminations. You can use glow in the dark neon paint for some themed activities that are sure to bring people together.
10. Pajama Party

When you’re in the mood to relax with your main daughters, a pajama theme is the way to run. Everyone has something to wear, and the popcorn will be ready to go. It’s a win-win.
