“Party, Party, Party, Let’s All Get Wasted!” I’m sure you’ve heard these lyrics from the newly-released Gucci Mane. Even more, I’m sure as a HBCU freshmen you can’t wait to get to all the college parties! There’s Back to School, Homecoming, Springfest, ABC (Anything But Clothes) parties and more likely than not, these parties will be held by a set of key organizations on campus, fraternities. Fraternities are known to bring the crowd, the livest DJ and much more. Here are 5 truths about fraternity parties:
1. “I DON’T WEAR TIGHT JEANS LIKE THE WHITE BOYS”
Dress code varies depending on who is throwing the party and what type of party it is. Some frats require you to dress up! Yes, you read right! Some frats have upscale parties while others are free rein. An indicator of deciding the attire, without the obvious choice of asking a member, is to look at the flyer and the location of the event. In most cases, raunchy flyer= ratchet party. A classier flyer= an upscale party. A house or warehouse location typically indicates ratchet as well while a club may be more upscale.
