The Interfraternity Ball was the highlight of the social calendar for fraternities and the biggest dance of the fall semester. It was held in October, usually after a home football game. In the 1950's the ball was known as the Harvest Moon Ball. Fraternities created booths for the event and a queen and court were selected. The dance was followed by fraternity parties that went on all night.
