Alpha Xi Delta's Social Calendar is always packed with different events! Each semester, we mix with various fraternities and sororities, as well as host date nights, crush parties, Semi-Formal in the fall, and our formal, the Killarney Ball, in the spring.
We have a blast coming up with fun outfits that fit the theme and getting ready with our sisters!
Roaring 20's Date Night
This year, Alpha Xi Delta rang in the New Year with a themed date night. Sisters dressed up with dates as 1920’s flappers or in New Years’ celebration outfits to celebrate the coming of the Roaring 20’s. Date nights, the more casual of the events on our social calendar, are a great way for members to dress up and dance like it’s the New Year!
Semi-Formal gives all of our members a chance to dress up, take pictures, and have a fun night away from the stresses of school. Whether we decide to bring dates or just have a fun night with your sisters, everyone can be seen laughing, dancing, and singing along to the band! Each year, the venue and band changes according to the votes from the chapter, so each Semi-Formal is unique.
Crush Party is said to be our favorite event of the year. Each sister is allowed to invite two “crushes”, so the venue is filled with all of the people we know and love. The theme is always changing, so sometimes the event is more formal, while other times it’s more casual. Last year, the theme was Masquerade, so people could be seen wearing fancier dresses and sparkly masks, while this year, our theme was Mardi Gras, where people were wearing beads and boas! Safe to say we were brushing glitter out of hair for the next few weeks!
One of my favorite parts of Alpha Xi Delta has always been spending time with my sisters at our social events, which is why I am extremely excited to be this year’s Chapter Events Director! I’m always looking for new event ideas, themes and venues around Atlanta so that sisters have the opportunity to do something new or exciting with the people they love. So far, my favorite event that I’ve planned has been our Holidays Crush Party at the Tabernacle. Although it took a lot of organizing, seeing everything come together, sisters enjoying themselves, and people having fun with the theme made all of the planning worth it! I can’t wait for the fall!
