Sorority Theme Party Ideas
I’ll admit it. I’m no longer in college, but I sure do have GREAT memories from it!
I was the social chair of my sorority and I LOVED theme parties, which means I had the opportunity to plan and coordinate lots of sorority theme parties. (I wish they had more themed parties for adults!)
This college guide is all about easy sorority theme party ideas.
If you are planning a sorority theme party, then you need to have a theme that is
1) easy for people to dress up for and
2) easy to buy decorations that match the theme.
If a sorority theme party idea is too obscure, people won’t know what to wear!
Easy and Fun Sorority Theme Party Ideas
Girls in your sorority will easily be able to get costumes and outfits to match these themed party ideas.
Plus, you’ll easily be able to buy decorations online.
P.S. – All of these themes work for fraternity-sorority mixers too!
1. Fun Hawaiian Luau
I personally LOVE Hawaiian luau for a sorority college theme party. It’s easy to get leighs for everyone and for girls to find flower dresses and skirts. Plus, guys can easily wear a Hawaiian shirt if you are doing a mixer.

Rock N’ Roll is a fun sorority party theme. Get bandanas for girls to wear as headbands and encourage everyone to get a concert t-shirt. Girls can wear jeans or black leggings.
