I'm talking about a private event for the two groups. Why can't they be two sororities? We did them all the time at UAB. Not unusual at all. I've known of them on other campuses as well. What is it you find so odd about that? As I said, social is social...one needs to learn to interact socially with both sexes...

Nothing wrong with that at all. However, the idea being presented was that they intended to match a fraternity with a sorority, and got their names confused.

Pansy Duo (KAO and DDD) and Monmouth Duo (PBP and KKG) are examples of private socials where members of each group bring a date to their shared event. I can't speak for colleges everywhere, but in Texas it was very common for sororities to co-host private date functions such as themed parties and formals.

Mixers (meet at this off campus bar/hangout to mix with members of the other GLO) were easy to plan with fraternities because little was required beyond an announcement in meeting and a sign in the house. (**note, I don't think these are allowed from a legal standpoint anymore...)

But speaking from only my campus experience, the fraternities were less than organized when it came to registered, pay up front, busses required for transportation, events. They also were wanting trashier sounding themed parties than we preferred. Therefore, the sororities just organized amongst ourselves and then invited the dates that we wanted there. If party t-shirts from other schools in Texas were any indication, I would say that was a VERY common practice.

And yes, it renders the OP pointless.

Exactly.

When referring to certain organizations, the school/Panhel/IFC/whoever should probably know which group they're actually talking about and sending to a social event (regardless of whether it's sorority-fraternity, sorority-sorority, or fraternity-fraternity).

I think the OP assumed the school was trying to match opposite sex orgs but there is nothing showing that was the intent.

No one disagreed with that. The idea as presented by the OP was that they didn't know their fraternities from their sororities. Everyone agreed that if that was not actually the true intention, then the OP was pointless.

Everyone did not agree and my post was in response to the one just before mine. What if the school knew which were which and did it on purpose? The OP and a couple of others here don't seem to be able to fathom that. That was my point.

It's not a matter of being able to "fathom" it, it's just that it is not what the original poster was commenting on.

If the OP would have said "why would a school schedule a social with two sororities?" then the first paragraph of ComradesTrue's post would have been an easy answer.

Your comment on (paraphrasing) the utter freakishness of a school scheduling GLO socials is what sent the thread off the rails in the first place.

Dr. Phil was correct - it's all 33girl's fault. My first post was #2 - first one after the OP. The next post to even mention it was #8 by aephi_alum as the last line in her post, sort of an after thought to her prime topic. The next time it was mentioned was post #11 BY YOU! You have such a narrow worldview that it's like trying to explain the Great Vowel Shift to a 3 year old.

Oh for crying out loud in a bucket. I was speaking to the subject of the original post (I was unaware that was wrong), and that has nothing to do with my "worldview." He's probably run screaming and vowed never to participate in anything involving sororities again considering a funny aside turned into this mess.

This is just comical now. Are you really THAT upset over this thread?

The school gets confused about which GLO is which, regardless of who's supposed to be socializing with whom.

The end.
