Question for the college kids

How are parties organized these days? I'm so old that parties were organized via 8.5" x 11" flyers posted all over campus. Usually starting a week in advance for a big party. These were often works of art and somebody may have spent a fair amount of time designing the flyer.

 

What to fraternities etc do these days to get a party going?

I'm 7 years removed, but it was word of mouth when I was in college.

Social media, word of mouth, texting. In that order from my experiences. 

 

My college holds an annual "golf party." 18 houses in a row off campus have a keg or two and some specialty drinks and usually the object is to take a shot at each house. Students wake up around 10am on a Saturday and get dressed in their best golfing attire. Thousands of students go to one house (backyard) at a time and when the liquor is finished, students migrate to the next house/"hole". No one makes it to the back 9 usually.

Word of mouth and texting was enough for the biggest college party I have ever seen or heard of:

 

  • An entire floor in our dorm (approximately 40 rooms)
  • Each room had it's own drinking game/theme (our room was a vodka tasting)
  • Over 150 guests (not including residents of the floor)
  • DJ in the lounge (a no-shiz, professional DJ)
  • 20 cops responding (more than half were no-shiz, real cops, not the campus PD variety)
  • 4 arrests
  • 1 near-stabbing
  • 3 people fired (two RAs and the Resident Life chair for the building)
  • 30 second spot on the news
  • Revision of the housing agreement for the entire university

Hiding from the cops on the 6th floor room of girl I knew all night: priceless.
