Greek life is full of fun activities, especially mixers! Hosting a mixer with another fraternity or sorority is a great way to build relationships with your fellow Greek organizations and expand the social circle of your chapter. However, not all mixers are equally effective, so it’s important to plan your event well in order to make it a success.
That’s where Sparkles Kennesaw can help! Our family entertainment center featuring roller skating, laser tag, arcade games, and concessions is the perfect place to host any Greek event, from mixers to fundraisers. Read on to learn how to make your fraternity or sorority mixer a success.
Choose a theme
Choosing a theme is one of the most effective ice-breakers for your Greek event! Everyone loves a good costume party, and encouraging your guests to dress up will create automatic topics of conversation, easing the transition from strangers to friends.
Our skating rink, laser tag arena, and arcade offer plenty of fodder for themes:
- Retro Skate Night- Channel 70s or 80s fashion.
- “Whip It” Night- Everyone dresses roller derby style and chooses punny names.
- Camo Night- Gear up in your best camouflage and play laser tag.
- 8-bit Arcade Night- Instruct guests to come dressed as their favorite retro video game character- Princess Peach, Mario, Ms. Pac Man, etc!
We are the local experts on Kennesaw group events and we can help you plan the perfect event with a private room or a completely private event, delicious food from our own Couey Cafe, and great music sure to keep the party going for hours. If you’re ready to throw a fraternity/sorority mixer that will be the talk of campus, contact us to make your reservation today.
