On Sept. 26, Belmont’s Alpha Tau Omega Iota Phi Chapter hosted the 15th Annual Disco is Dead social in the Curb Cafe. The ’70s-themed disco party, the largest on campus social, has become a staple at Belmont, and every year the chapter looks at ways to make the event even better.
This year the brothers of ATO asked participants to donate $1 to the American Red Cross to support the victims of the recent hurricanes, and the event raised more than $400. Senior Phi Mu Taylor Walters said, “We all love coming to ATO’s Disco is Dead. There is no better opportunity than this to dress up and have a good time. It also gives us an opportunity to have fun with our new members.”
Disco is Dead also featured new dance platforms and a red carpet that welcomed guests to the party. The event was sponsored by Vitamin Water, with party goers receiving their choice of Vitamin Water products. To market the event to students, creative banners and signs were hung around campus that played off Belmont’s Debate08 logo, changing it to read Disco08.
