The Inside Scoop To Friday Brunches on Sorority Row

Friday Mornings at UCLA are no joke in the Greek Community. Waking up, tired as ever, trying to make it through the last day before the weekend…there’s truly only one thing to get you through it: Sorority Brunches.

Brunch on the row is one of the most beloved pastimes on campus. Sure, we are lucky to have delicious food at sorority houses throughout the entire week, but brunch is unlike anything you’ve eaten before. I’ve gone as far as planning my class schedule around brunch, to ensure I will get that French toast and scrambled eggs that will fill me up for the rest of the day. And it’s not just sororities who appreciate this event of the week….

Fraternity members and members of all organizations live for brunch on the row. It's not only the most delicious and scrumptious meal one can desire, but buffet-style (yes, all you can eat until food runs out) and the best part is it's free. Various members on the row in different houses warned that if you don’t get there early enough, you might just be out of luck due to the popularity of brunch time at UCLA. The line starts to form up to 15 minutes before food is served! And although the amount of food served is ridiculously large, you better be quick because it might just be gone if you are too late.

Brunch at UCLA is not like any brunch in LA. Some think of “brunching in LA” as some sort of activity where you dress up super trendy and cute, and submerge yourself in the crazy and various LA scenes and foods. Which is true, but not in this case. At UCLA, brunch is a judge-free zone, where all just come to bond over the mass amount of food they are about to consume, and celebrate that they made it through the week of school (and another Thursday night), or just to celebrate the start of the weekend. Come in pajamas, roll out of bed, take an uber, do whatever you have to to get to Brunch on the row, because you don’t want to miss out.

Brunch is served by the many amazing chef’s of each house, but some are. The dynamic of brunch at each house is so unique to each house, so if you’re a frat boy aspiring to be invited to sorority brunches, here’s your personal low down of brunch at some of the houses around campus.

Alpha Chi Omega:

Start: 11:00 am

Provider: College Chefs

An upscale, beautiful display of fresh fruit, warm pancakes, cheesy potatoes, sausage, smoothies...a true buffet style brunch fit to feed the whole campus. Options for all types of eaters: vegan, sweet lovers, salty lovers, healthy eaters, meat enthusiasts, you name it!



Alpha Gamma Delta:

Start: 11:00 a.m.

Provider: Chef Miguel

AGD is the newest to the brunch scene on the row, only because their chapter was just formed last year! That being said, they also have the newest (and it is absolutely beautiful) house on the row. So good food, and in a brand new beautiful home?! That’s a win win for sure.

Gamma Phi Beta:

Start: 12:30 p.m.

Provider: Chef Joe Fasick “and hes the bomb.com”-G Phi sister

G Phi is the first house on the row, and arguably one of the first in brunches. Guests are always welcome and brunch always comes with some sort of cool pancake---last week was a heart for valentine’s day—and then a variation of egg frittata, bacon/turkey bacon, sausage, fruit, smoothie, desserts, and of course coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

Delta Gamma:

Start time: 11:30am

Provider: Chef Jusice


Pi Beta Phi:

Start: 11:30am-1pm

Provider: Chef Shaundra

"Best and most popular meal of the week for sure." -Pi Phi Sister

Guests are welcome. They always have a wide variety of food to chose from, but you can count on their definitely being bacon, eggs and some sort of home made pastry each week.


Chi Omega:

Start: 11:30

Provider: Chef Celsie Flores

"I hear Chi O has good food" - GreekRank

Always has some egg dish—whether it be eggs benedict or classic scrambled eggs—with some breakfast meat and always a vegan/gluten free option (Also, rumor has it that Chef Celsie used to work for Ellen Degeneres). I would say this meal is the type that reminds you of your momma’s home cooked meals for sure.


Alpha Phi:

Start: 9:00 am

Provider: Chef Marta

A great place to bring all your friends on a Friday morning. Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere is guaranteed to always be lively. Whether you want fresh smoothies, a plate full of bacon, a beautiful home to hang in, or a social atmosphere, A Phi brunch always has something delicious or delightful to indulge in.


Kappa Alpha Theta:

Start: 11:30 am

Provider: Chef Jose

Definitely always a something new and that settles your cravings. Rumor has it that some Fridays they have a breakfast burrito bar, amongst a million other delicious options. Theta has the space for a ton of guests at brunch, and the food never disappoints. Between their large dining room area, and their sunny outside patio, Theta definitely welcomes guests to brunch and treats them right.


Kappa Kappa Gamma:

Start: 10:30 am – 1:00pm “but we will often run out of food by then…”

Provider: College Chef

KKG’s brunch is catered by College Chef, and is a popular brunch on the row. Huge variety, and is a brunch that's a must to experience its delciousness. They normally eat in their dining room, or the TV room (because the couches are too comfy to pass up) but on nice days eat in their beautiful courtyard.


Delta Delta Delta:

Start: 11:30 a.m.

Provider: Chef Tina

"Delicious, reinvigorating and the best part of my day."- TriDelt Sister

They may be the furthest house down Hilgard, but their brunch is anything but farthest from the top. You can guarantee there is always scrambled eggs and quiche, cheesy hash browns, and a make your own waffle station.


College Chefs is the creative food solution exclusively for fraternities and sororities around the U.S. A culinary company first, their Chefs are world-class talents whose backgrounds range from former restaurant owners to genuine, trained foodies who are just looking to break into the industry.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
