11 Wildest Frat Parties (Slideshow)

Go Greek and you may get to attend one of these crazy parties

Bahamas Party

Kappa Sigma at Washington and Lee University’s annual Bahamas Party is a playground of fun. Think pools, waterslides and hundreds of people. Grab a drink (there was $3,000 worth of beer at the last party) and get ready for a Bahamas-inspired adventure.

Beer, Beer, and More Beer


Members of Boston University’s fraternity Zeta Beta Tau, aka Z.B.T., got in trouble for a series of wild parties where they and hundreds of partygoers engaged in less than favorable behavior. Frat members were arrested and jailed after one crazy party, where police officers found over 1,000 beer cans and marijuana. A Boston Police officer said these parties were “in the top 10 percent” of wild parties they’d seen.

Reggae Sunsplash Party

The Reggae Sunpash Party hosted by the Sigma Chi fraternity at San Diego State University is a collegiate beach party that’s tough to forget. Think sand, pools, Tiki torches, colorful décor, and lots of booze and Red Bull, one of the party’s sponsors.

Volcano Party

Plan to get wet at the Volcano party organized by Pi Kappa Alpha (PIKE) at University of Arizona. The event features girls and guys in beachwear drinking beer and getting wet under waterfalls and wading in pools. There are water slides, pool noodles, and ice bars where partygoers can drink shots funnel down the ice. 

Foam Frenzy

Going to the University of Arizona is a dream for party animals. Pi Kappa Alpha’s foam party is the latest memorable bash for the frat that’s also known as PIKE. There’s drinking, dancing and lots of foam for frolicking.

Splash Bash

This paint party, hosted by Alpha Epsilon Pi at the University of Maryland, is a wild celebration that has a lot of ingredients for a good time: paint, alcohol, beach balls and crazy lighting. 

Jungle Party

The Jungle Party at the University of Arizona doesn’t disappoint. Hosted by Sigma Alpha Epsilon, this tropical party takes months to plan.

Woodstock Party

Looking for beer, beach balls, and a festive vibe? Head to Ole Miss, where the party reputation precedes them —The Princeton Review lists the school as number 16 on its annual list of best party schools. The University of Mississippi’s Sigma Nu fraternity takes its spring Woodstock party so seriously that this year, they hired a professional drone company to shoot aerial video of the wall-to-wall party.


The LOST party hosted by fraternity Chi Phi at University of Georgia in Athens is a full-on music festival, complete with bands, strobe lights, and fans that are ready to rock.

Island “Orgy”

Feeling frisky? The Island “Orgy” by Kappa Sigma at the University of Arkansas sounds cool and wins over students with beer, crawfish, volleyball, and music. The party, which is spread out across yards, apartments and the main house, is a continuous good time.


Pi Kappa Phi's 2013 Glow party at USC was so impressive that College Envy said it might have been the “best party of the year.” The frat from the University of Southern California didn’t miss any details, including entertainment by Riff Raff and Blastranauts. Online buzz says partygoers drove from all over California to attend this party.
