Alpha Xi Delta embodies the family atmosphere that Kansas State University promotes. The list of social events Alpha Xi Delta participates in varies from celebrating homecoming with other fraternities and sororities to showing our families around Manhattan on Mom’s Day and Dad’s Day. All these events allow our sisters to spend time together and make other friends in the Fraternity & Sorority Life community.
Every semester Alpha Xi Delta plans several date parties! Each one has a different theme and our most recent date parties have been Coachella, Wig Out, and Xi Last Disco. Our sisters love dressing up and getting together to plan out their outfits for these social events. Also every December we put on a Tacky Christmas date party to get in the Christmas spirit. Not only do we have themed date parties, but we also have semi-formal in the fall and our formal in the spring.
In addition to our date parties, we also put together social activities with different fraternities and sororities. We have had social events like Movie Night with DU, Lake Day with SAE, and a bonfire with Fiji. For the movie night, we had an ice cream bar and popsicles to enjoy while watching Shrek, and for the bonfire, we had s’mores! Socials are another great way to meet people, and it allows the two groups more time to socialize. All in all this semester has been packed with different events Alpha Xi Delta can participate in!
Homecoming is a longstanding tradition for both Greek and non-Greek organizations at K-State. This is another exciting way we get to spend time with other chapters in the community. During this week, we compete in several events including Pant the Chant, Paint the ‘Ville, Wildcats Request Live, and a parade. Alpha Xi Delta has consistently placed in events each year, and we’re always looking forward to this campus tradition!
We don’t forget about our families either! There are few things we enjoy more than showing our loved ones how much fun both Alpha Xi Delta and Manhattan are. During the fall semester, we have Dad’s Day this year, we all invited our dads to Goolsby's Friday night and then went to the K-State football game to cheer on the Cats the next day!
Then in the spring semester, we invite our siblings and moms to spend fun-filled weekends with us too! This year for Siblings Day we put together a scavenger hunt all over Manhattan. For Mom’s Day, we had brunch and a painting party!
