Every year the brothers of Phi Delta Theta have made it their goal to have a strong social presence on the row. As such, every year we schedule a calendar filled with events with every sorority. Whether it’s tailgating during game days or formal in Las Vegas, we are always finding ways to make the semester a fantastic time for every brother. No matter what you will always be able to find a group of brothers ready to rally, even if it’s just a Tuesday night at the 90. This kind of brotherhood is what brings Phi Delta Theta together and helps us constantly improve ourselves socially. We pride ourselves on creating a memorable time within the fraternity in which you not only get the complete social experience, but also come out a better man ready to represent both Phi Delta Theta and USC.
Invites: These are one of the most popular events of the semester in which a brother asks his date to either a formal or themed dance. Typically including some sort of dinner before, buses are provided bringing every couple to the venue. Venues are typically booked at popular locations all across Los Angeles.
Date Dashes: Similar to invites except for the fact that brothers are only given a very short notice to find a date. These events are themed and the venues are generally unknown until arrival.
Exchanges: These occur generally twice a semester and are when the brothers of Phi Delta Theta pair with a sorority for a night out to a popular bar, nightclub, or venue around the Los Angeles Area. Exchanges are to a specific theme such as caddy shack, neon, etc.
Tailgates: Fall semester means one thing and one thing only: Trojan Football. And what would football season be without awesome tailgates held on the quad? We celebrate every home game with a massive tailgate filled with friends, girls, and alumni in one of the central hubs of activity on campus. For away games we host in-house barbecues and invite girls over to watch the game on our wall-size projector screen.
Mixers: Generally we host a mixer (or “B&B”) with a sorority on a Tuesday or Thursday night. Mixers are an opportunity to get to know girls in every house and build better relationships for future events.
Vegas Formal: What better way to cap off spring semester with arguably the best social event of the entire year? Simply put it’s a weekend long invite in Las Vegas. Buses leave Friday morning taking couples straight to the hotel. This past year’s festivities saw us renting out the Real World Suite the first night and The Palms Sky Villa the second night. No one misses this.
Weekender: Every fall semester the brothers of Phi Delta Theta head up to nor cal for a weekend to support USC’s dominance over Stanford or Cal. Along with much of the USC student community we take over downtown San Francisco.
Concerts & Music Festivals: Phi Delta Theta has established a strong presence at all the most awesome concerts and music festivals in Southern California. Some of our best experiences include renting a tour bus to transport a group of Phis and girls to Beyond Wonderland 2012 in San Bernardino, getting deluxe suites at The Venetian in Las Vegas for EDC 2012, and hosting the guys at various brother’s houses near Indio for Coachella.
