Through all the hard work and dedication each chapter gives to Bradley, they are also classified as Social organizations. That stems beyond the stereotypical party scene. One of the most enjoyable parts of joining a sorority or fraternity involves making new friends and forming bonds that will last long after college. You will not only learn to live with others, but, through sharing the same experiences, environment, and interests, you will develop a special closeness to those around you. As friends, they will share your successes, happiness, and occasional evenings just relaxing at the chapter house. Brotherhood and sisterhood mean more than wearing Greek letters, attending meetings, and going to social events.
Every year on Move-In Day, Bradley fraternities and sororities host the biggest party of the year, Block Party. Fredonia Avenue is blocked off, and transformed into a sea of people, food, drinks, and entertainment. Block Party is open to the entire campus, free to everyone, and alcohol free.
Fright & Fun on Fredonia
Every year the Bradley University Fraternity and Sorority Community hosts a safe trick or treating event for children in Peoria called Fright and Fun on Fredonia Avenue. Dozens of organizations set up tables on Fredonia Ave. with either a Halloween related activity for the children to do, or candy for them to take as they go up and down the block. Activities consist of many different kinds of things from face paint to pumpkin decorating. Additionally, a costume contest is held with prizes for the best costumes.
Panhellenic, IFC, and NPHC Chapters come together for a week of competition, spirit and service in the fall semester. Activities include field games, trivia contests, service events, philanthropic fundraisers, and the biggest event of all, Panfrasing! Panfrasing is our dance competition that is the highlight of the week.
