Sure, you know what a toga party is and you've probably even attended one yourself, but did you ever wonder how the toga party got started? In the 1960's, McMaster University in Ontario Canada popularized the concept among its Greek fraternities. The prevalence of Greek campus culture lead to widespread toga party events, even though the toga is actually a Roman garb. Today, the toga party is common among American college campuses where fraternity members as well as sorority members dress up in bed sheets, fashioned into toga type costumes. At a toga party, the beer flows freely as does the carousing atmosphere.
