In 1953, a group of college students from Pomona College dressed in their togas and put ivy wreaths on their heads. With their dorm mattresses in tow, they gathered at the home of Mark Neuman, a freshman, who lived in Flintridge. In doing so, they participated in a party that would remain a time-honored tradition in colleges and universities for many decades to come. America had seen its first college toga party.
Toga parties have become a staple on college campuses. In fact, the largest toga party, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, happened in February 2012 in Australia. Over 3,700 participants joined together in Brisbane to enjoy good food, great drinks, and play Greek or Roman-themed games.
