Skit Night (as far as can be gathered from the internet) is one of the events of Greek Week, which is a week-long celebration organised by the Greek societies (college fraternities and sororities) held during the Spring semester of the American college year.

It appears to be an evening of comic revues and sketches performed in order to raise money for charity ... possibly similar to the 'rag week' of British universities?

Can anyone throw any more light on this?
