We wanted to share some of the responses we got from our August “Question of the Month.” The question was, “What was the top social event at the house the year you graduated?”

During our college years we attended parties, dinners, concerts and every other kind of social event. While some of these memories may fade, everyone has at least one great senior-year memory that stands the test of time. 

For some, it may have been meeting their future spouse. For others, it was a particularly memorable prank. Often, it was the moment where you and your brothers were together in one place for the last time.

These are some of the responses that we received from Brothers who read last month’s eLetter. Check out our question of the month in THIS month’s edition and share a story with the rest of your Brothers.


  • A house party with live music.
  • I don't know if it was the top event, but it is memorable to me: We had a party on the Friday of Fling '86 - a "normal" Friday party for that year (~450 people). It was fun. But that was not memorable. What was memorable was that we were all in the Quad the next day (about 1PM) listening to the music. Someone said, "Yeah, that party last night was really fun." And someone else said, "We should have another one." And someone else said, "How about tonight? We have some [refreshments] left over." And so it was. The well-oiled machine set in motion. Party posters were created, printed and put up. The House was set up. People took their shifts.* And we had *another* fun party (with *only* ~375 people). That was a highlight - not just how fun those parties were, but how well we worked as a team to make them happen. That party was the culmination of a year of having parties every other Friday - probably 20 overall. * I was bartender 10-11:30.
