Though Greek parties do not COMPLETELY dominate the social scene here at SU, it is safe to say that they provide the majority of our nightlife options. That being said, what will we ever do for 14 days without their houses to blackout in, with the free alcohol they provide? Let me provide y’all with some quality partying ideas to get us through, until after-hours are a thing again.
- Get in touch with your friends on South- I mean, I’m not saying to use them per-say, but send out a couple of texts to acquaintances who reside on south campus. Apartment parties on south are a fun alternative first off because they rarely get broken up, they are usually smaller and house a more intimate crowd, and last but not least, there is rarely a night where there isn’t a party, so done, done, and done.
- Turn to social media- Nowadays it’s so easy to find out what’s going on at night just by logging on and clicking “go.” Websites like Syracuse University’s own start-up company Fiesta Frog, give you an array of party places that are throwing down at night. From house parties on Lancaster, to bar specials at Chuck’s, it’s just that easy.
- Get the crew together- Think of your freshman floor, your go-to drinking buddies, or the most random group of fun people that you know, and try to meet up with them for a night. There ain’t no party like an S-Club party. Use this two-week hiatus as a time to partake in random drinkingness with friends, the typical card games, hand games, love games, whatever.
