If you are planning a dorm party, you will want to make sure to invite your friends, both males and females. However, you should avoid inviting too many people to your dorm party, as that could make your room look like a hoard of trash. Instead, you should focus on the fun part of throwing a college dorm party – making sure your friends have a great time.
Without enjoyable parties, what is college? After all, isn’t that the whole point of attending college?
Haha, I kid you not. But I’ve been to my fair share of wild dorm parties that I’ll remember for the rest of my life as a former college student who took 5 years to get my degree (don’t judge me).
How Are Dorm Parties Hosted?
Here are some things to consider before hosting a party in your dorm room:
Get Your RA’s Attention
It’s difficult to host great dorm parties without having your RA (resident assistant) shut them down minutes afterwards. So my suggestion is to become familiar with your RA! Some RAs are friendly and wouldn’t mind if you hosted a party as long as you kept the noise to a reasonable level. However, some RAs can be really tight and won’t allow any gatherings or drinking in the dorm.
So be sure you verify the policies and with your RA before hosting a party in your dorm. Being criticized is the last thing you want to happen!
Inform Your Neighbors
I’ll give you some advice now. So they won’t leak information about you, invite your neighbors to your party! HAHA! You have to do what you have to do, after all!
But be sure to show respect if they don’t want to go out with you! Ask their permission to play music and inform them of the start and end times of your party. Unless you’re organizing a party during finals week, most of the time folks are fine with you having a party next door. I mean! College time! However, refrain from playing the music so loud that the walls start to shake.
Put Away Your Valuables!
You guys, this is so so so crucial! The laptop, speaker, and skateboard that belonged to one of my closest college friends were all GONE after the party!
Oh my goodness, the money she lost!
The worst part is that there were no security cameras present, making it impossible for her to even recover any of the stolen property. It goes without saying that it’s not a good idea to leave your valuables unattended in a party full of crazy (and occasionally broke) college students LOL!
Throwing a college dorm party is not as hard as you might think! Planning ahead will ensure that things don’t go wrong and that everyone has a good time. The party will give you a chance to meet new people, joke around, and socialize with your new friends. However, it will take some planning and preparation, and you should take responsibility for any problems that may arise. Whether you’re throwing a party for your friends, or for your own benefit, you should be prepared to face any situation that might arise.
If you want to create an atmosphere of fun and excitement, you can hang disco lights. Disco lights can be attached to a ceiling or wall. They have sound-activated features that make their colors change with the music. Just remember that alcohol is prohibited in college dorms, even if many of your guests are under the age of 21. A zero-tolerance policy in most residences means that you’ll need to ensure that your guests do not drink alcohol or take drugs.
College is a hectic time for many young people. They are excited to be independent, socialize with their peers, and experience things that they find enjoyable. However, a dorm party can help them relax and rejuvenate from the academic pressures they face. However, students should make sure they have a balance between academics and social life. Therefore, college dorm parties are a great way to celebrate the start of their college career.
When throwing a college dorm party, you need to make sure to add a few activities to keep guests entertained. Whether you want your guests to have fun dancing around the room or playing games in the hallway, there are plenty of options available for activities. And you do not want your party to be boring or a disaster! That is why it is so important to make sure your college dorm party is fun, exciting, and filled with activities.
Organize a fun game. You could create a fun twister for your college dorm party. For this activity, all you need is a large room, sticky tack, or masking tape. Mark colored dots on the floor and split the group into teams. Once the teams have finished decorating, switch sides, and award the winner the best decorated side. You can also try out a game like “pick-a-string” or a version of this with a team of friends.
Music is another important aspect to a dorm party. Music adds life to any party, and you should choose what genres you want to play. Decide on a playlist, so you can use it as background music while people talk and drink. A reliable music player can help you make a playlist. Make sure the playlist has songs that everyone enjoys, whether you are throwing a raucous dance party, or simply prefer a romantic background music for a romantic night.
