You know, I don't really know. They really are not worth it.
There is always Rush week, but most events are members only. Most of the time, you have to be in a frat to partake.
To interact and contribute on College Prowler, registration is required. Don't worry, it's free, secure, and only takes a few minutes.

Austin's nightlife is never boring. No matter your personality, you shouldn't have a problem finding something to do. From concerts to bars, country to punk, laid-back to rowdy, beer to martinis, 6th street is the place to be once you turn 21 or when you have a really good fake ID. Don't try to go downtown unless your ID is good, because you will get caught. Underage drinking violations are rampant. In recent years it was a lot easier to drink underage, but they have cracked down since then. If you are underage, there are always other options-coffeehouses, fraternity parties, dorm and apartment parties, and the like.
If you don't like the downtown scene, you can always hit the restaurant bars like Trudy's, Iron Cactus, Baby A's or the campus-area bars like Cain and Abel's. Whatever you like to do you can find it in Austin and at the University of Texas. The fraternity parties are always fun. Dorm parties are more common in the private dorms, but Jester is rumored to have some pretty fun floor parties. The popular apartment complexes on West Campus and Riverside frequently have parties, so if you want a quiet place to live, look into other neighborhoods or smaller complexes. Some places on 6th Street are certainly not for the faint of heart.
