There will be 10 skits performed by Alpha Gamma Rho; Alpha Omicron Pi and Alpha Delta Pi; Alpha Chi Omega and Delta Gamma; Alpha Tau Omega; Baptist Collegiate Ministry; Chi Omega; Delta Delta Delta; Delta Zeta; Kappa Delta and Kappa Kappa Gamma; and Zeta Tau Alpha and Phi Mu.

Themes of the skits include “The Little Rascals,” “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” “300,” “The Grinch” and “Rock of Love.”
