Guide to College Dorm Parties for Students
It would be a lie if I said I didn’t party my way through college since I just graduated a few months ago. It can be tricky to throw a party in your dorm since there are so many rules, but I promise that you will be able to do it.
College is all about getting an education, and having fun at the same time. Students can benefit from meeting new people and socializing while de-stressing and relaxing.
What are the rules for college parties?
Although dorm room parties are often against the rules in college, they still happen. If there are cool resident assistants checking the noise level, inviting neighbors, and keeping the party from shutting down, the party will not shut down. Dorm rooms tend to be quite small, so you should limit the number of guests staying there.
College dorm parties can be thrown by following these steps.
Dos and don’ts of college dorm parties
By defining the four phases of organizing a dorm party, I hope to make it easier for you. Planning and consideration are the key to a successful dorm party.
There is always a risk of parties being shut down, and there will be consequences. Following the four phases may prevent the dorm party from getting out of hand, but there is no guarantee it won’t.
To make your dorm party the best one ever, follow these steps:
1. Ask your resident assistant if it’s okay
When you live in a dorm, it’s extremely important to be respectful and cool with your RA. An RA who will turn a blind eye to your dorm party can come in handy if you want to throw one.
If you alert the resident assistant about your dorm party, you will help prevent it from being shut down. In most cases, throwing a party at your dorm won’t cause any problems as long as your RA is cool with it.
If your RA does not allow dorm parties, it is best to throw a small party, rather than none at all. There is no reason why you should worry about getting kicked out of your dorm for throwing a party!
2. Tell your neighbors what you’re doing
It’s great to keep your dorm party quiet by not informing your neighbors. You won’t worry about annoying your neighbors, especially if they’re already informed.
It will be a great opportunity for you to meet your neighbors at the dorm party. There’s nothing better than having neighbors who are always around if you want to hang out.
The party can begin as soon as you finish setting up.
3. Have your friends join you
Dorm parties are the best place to invite your friends. If you want the party to be fun, you need to invite some people who enjoy partying. It would be good to invite both men and women.
Make sure you don’t let things get out of control if you’re inviting friends. Your dorm room should only be shared with people who will respect it and not damage it.
4. Sip on a beverage
A dorm party is incomplete without drinks. Drinking underage can get you in legal trouble, so it is best not to do so. Instead, try a mocktail.
In a dorm room, you’ll drink beer, seltzers, and some bottles when you’re old enough to drink. You can play drinking games with beers and seltzers, and you can mix drinks and take shots with bottles of alcohol.
Drinks are usually brought to a dorm party by the guests.
5. Be sure that all valuables and anything that could break are hidden away
It’s not uncommon for things to break or even to be stolen on campus when you’re drinking. You shouldn’t let your valuables be seen during a party in case things go awry.
It is best to store fragile items, such as electronics, in a safe place if you don’t want them damaged. It isn’t just difficult to fix broken items, but also difficult to clean them up.
6. Make your party room a beer pong area
There is no dorm party without beer pong tables. A great drinking game, beer pong is great for getting people together and is a lot of fun.
You can play it just as easily as you can set it up. In order to have a fun drinking game at your dorm party, you must have beer pong.
