“College life can be the best.” Creating memorable student dorm parties is one of college students’ most important rituals. There is no better way to commemorate your special day or get some relief from the stress of college than throwing a party with your friends and all your guests. For inspiration, here’s a list of essentials to plan a college dorm room party. While the College dorm party may seem daunting due to so many rules, I can assure you that there is a way for everyone to have a great time.
Is it possible to host a college party at a dorm?
College is a time to learn and grow, while having fun . Although college can be stressful for students, partying is a wonderful way to unwind, meet new people, and have fun. Even though it’s against regulations to host a college dorm party, they do happen. The party won’t be shut down if neighbors are invited, the noise level monitored, and a cool resident assistant present. Dorm rooms are usually small and it’s best not to invite too many people.
Here are some tips for hosting memorable college parties.
Stage1: Prepare a Settlement plan for College Dorm Party
Rely on your Resident Assistant for their confidence.
You must treat your RA with respect if you are living in a dorm. A resident assistant who is not willing to listen will be a great asset when organizing a dorm event. It will not be closed down if your resident assistant notices that you’re hosting a dorm-party. A college dorm party is fine if your resident assistant is confident in you and agrees with the idea. If your RA is against dorm parties or doesn’t like the idea of hosting one, you can have a small party or even a no-host event. You don’t want to get kicked out from your dorm for throwing a party!
Inform Your Neighbors
Notifying your neighbors ahead of time is a wonderful way for your dorm to have a good time. Even if the party is for only one night your neighbors will be fine if things get a bit rowdy. If you want to meet your neighbors, you can invite them to the dorm party. It’s always great to meet up with your neighbors and share some laughs.
Schedule Of The Party
Picking a date and time that works for you is the first step. You can arrange an event in the same venue as a large bar crawl. It might be a good idea to have a party at the top of your list after a sporting event. However, it is important not to clash with other events on campus.
Now is the time to get out there and promote yourself! There can’t be any party without people. You should always have your smartphone with you. Spread the word on social networks. Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter are great ways to connect with students.
Make hashtags that include your room name or address and submit your details for your personal story. You can invite anyone interested in DMing you if you don’t wish to make an invitation-only posting. This will give you greater control over who comes to your huge party.
Stage 2: Plan Your College Dorm Party
Set The Dorm Party theme
Dorm parties are usually laid-back events where everyone can wear what they want. It can be quite fun to have a theme. Here are some suggestions to help get you started.
Traditional Dom Party Theme – Party of the Decades
JazzNight Dorm Party
Angel, Demon Dom Party
Rock N Roll Music Game
These are just a few themes that you could discuss with your team. And don’t forget about taking photos!
I love taking throwaway photos on fun nights like this. The pictures are candid and always look great.
If you plan to host a dorm-party, invite your friends. You are the ones who make the party fun, so invite friends. It is important to invite both men and women. Don’t ask for too many people as you don’t want things getting out of control. It is vital that you invite only people who are respectful of the college dorm rooms and won’t damage or trash them.
Organising a dorm night is all about the meal menu. You could be charged with criminal offenses if you drink under 21. Avoid mocktails in such situations. A dorm night can be as simple and straightforward as a few drinks, seltzers, or bottles, provided you are allowed to drink. For shots and mixing drinks, bottles of alcohol can be used to make cocktails. Beer and seltzers can be used for drinking.
They will appreciate the food you prepare for them. It doesn’t have to be extravagant. You can have a simple snack. It’s possible to request that guests bring snacks as an “entry charge” so that you don’t have extra money for meals.
Here are some ideas for food to bring to college parties.
Salsa & Chips
Sliders with Ham, Cheese
Strawberries dipped with chocolate
Pizza, Donuts, Tortilla Wrap-Ups Hotdogs
A Party Menu featuring bites of macaroni, cheese mixture and bread
French Fries and Grilled Cheese Burgers
Most dorms adhere to a strict no-alcohol policy. These are some non-alcoholic drink suggestions:
Lemonade with strawberries
“No”jitos with watermelon
Pina Coladas (virgin)
Mocktail of Frozen peach Bellini
Sangria made from virgin cranberries.
A crush of Mango & Orange
Iced Blueberry Ginger Tea
Bombastic Music Playlist
A killer Spotify party playlist is key to great college parties. You will have to choose the type of music that you play depending on what topic of your party. It’s always a good idea, however, to have some Hip Hop classics at your disposal.
This is one my all-time favorite dorm room playlists. It creates a great vibe and gets everyone moving! This playlist is perfect for Bay Area slaps fans!
College Dorm Party Activities and Games
Playing games before or during the party can help guests get to know each other better. Here are some ideas for college parties.
Traditional Beer Pong
Beer pong is one of the most iconic games you can play at a college party. It’s a classic game that you have probably seen in college movies and Hollywood “coming of age” films. To start, you will need a large table and some red cups. Are you unsure of the rules?
Never Have I Consumed Alcohol
Another game that we enjoyed playing at gatherings was “Never had I ever.” It is a great ice-breaker, but it can also lead to some misunderstandings. You can choose to play the adult-friendly or kid-friendly version. You can choose which one suits your mood.
Spin The Bottle Game
The game of spin-the-bottle is a familiar one. Combining this with a little bit more booze courage can make this game a lot of fun. This is a fantastic pre-game activity to get everyone warm up and the party started!
Flip cup was one of my favorite college drinking games. It’s sort of like a relay race. Each partner takes one mug of beer, and each person tries to flip it upside-down before the next person takes it.
Here are the steps to play the game according to Wikihow.
Stage3: Precautions & Not-To Do List
Place Your Valuable Item In A Safe Place
Drunk college students can cause items to break or be stolen by using alcohol. For the event that things get outof control, make sure valuables are kept out of reach. You should store any fragile or damaged items safely. It’ll be hard to clean up any broken items, and it will be very inconvenient.
Don’t disturb others
It is crucial to limit the noise at your party. Even if you know your neighbors and RA that you’re throwing a party it is crucial that the party doesn’t get too loud. Music can cause noise, as everyone will be talking over it. You can enjoy your party by keeping the volume at a reasonable level.
Avoid Over Drinking
Although I can appreciate that drinking is a relaxing way to relieve stress, it’s important to drink responsibly. It’s best to stop your guest from drinking if they have consumed too much alcohol. It’s easy to lose count of how many drinks have you had once you’ve had one. Remember, you are the guest at the party. You don’t want anything to happen at your party.
Get organized for your gathering
Students who drink alcohol can become irrational, aggressive, and boisterous. To avoid any unpleasant consequences, it is important to control the party and keep it under control. It shouldn’t be difficult to keep the party in control if your friends show respect and you have a great time. It is not a good idea to invite strangers. Even though throwing a huge party is a lot of fun and can be very entertaining, it’s more likely that you will have problems with people you don’t know.
