After a very busy Friday, where I went to classes, did homework, had two research meetings, a Meet USC event, and a work meeting,I was very much looking forward to going to my sorority’s invite that night! Invites are where girls get to bring a date of their choice and get into costume to go celebrate at a surprise venue. The theme of the evening was “GPhi Jukebox” – so every grade was assigned a different musical genre including rock n’ roll, rave, pop, and country. The sophomores were given pop; many girls and their dates chose to go as Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Madonna, plus many other popular singers.

My date and our group of friends ate a quick dinner in my friend’s apartment before going to the sorority house and loading the buses to go to Invite. The surprise location this time was Joseph’s Cafe in Hollywood, a Greek Mediterranean restaurant and club. My sorority rented out the restaurant, so the tables were all cleared away except for the covered patio/sitting area, which is where the hors d’oeuvres were served. We all had such a great time singing along to our favorite songs and dancing the night away with our sisters and our dates!
