“College life’s the best life.” The most meaningful ritual for college students is to host a memorable student dorm event. How better to mark your special day than throwing a party for your friends (and everyone else)? If you’re looking to get some inspiration, we’ve put together a list of all the necessary items for planning a college dorm. Even though college dorm parties can seem complicated due to all of the rules, there are still ways to have a great time in your dorm.
Is it possible having a college Dorm Party?
College is a time to learn while having a lot of fun . Students can find college quite stressful. Therefore, it is important to have fun and relax. Although it is against college rules to have dorm-room parties, these events do occur. If neighbours are invited, the noise level and presence of a resident assistant monitor the College Dorm party, it will not be stopped. Dorm rooms tend to be quite small, so it is best not to have too many guests.
We will be sharing our top tips for college party planning.
Stage 1: Plan a settlement for the college dorm party
Get the confidence of your Resident Associate
Dorm residents must treat their RA with respect. It is a good idea to have an RA that will not turn a blindeye when you plan a dorm-party. You can tell your resident assistant that you will be hosting a dorm night party and they will not shut it down. If your RA is confident in the party and is open to it, you shouldn’t have any problems. If your RA says no or refuses to allow dorm parties, it’s better to hold a small event or to not host one at all. It’s not a good idea to throw a party in your dorm.
Inform Your Neighbors
You can inform your neighbors about your party in advance. Even if it’s for a single night, your neighbors won’t mind if things get a little rowdy if they were informed beforehand. If you want to get closer to your neighbours, invite them along to the College dorm party. It’s always a great time to get to know your neighbors.
Schedule of the Party
The first step is to select a suitable day and time that does not conflict with any other school events. You could arrange an event for the same evening as a large-scale bar crawl. It can be a great idea not only to host the party after a sporting event but also to avoid clashing it with other campus events.
Now is the right time to promote yourself. Without people, there is no party. Use social media to spread the word. Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter are three of the most popular ways to engage students.
In your hashtags, include the room name and/or address. Next, add your details to your tale. Invite everyone you want to invite to your party by DMing them.
Stage2: Plan Your College Dorm Celebration
Set the Dorm Party Theme
Dorm parties are laid-back affairs that everyone can wear whatever clothes they want. But, having a theme can make it a lot more enjoyable. Here are some tips to help you get started.
Traditional Dom Party Party Theme: Party of the Decades
JazzNight Dorm Party
Angel, Demon Dom Party
Rock N Roll Music Game
These are the main themes that you might discuss with your colleagues. Be sure to take some pictures!
I love to take throwaway pictures during fun nights such as these. They are so candid and the vibes can be perfect.
If you’re going to throw a party, make sure to invite your friends. It’s your friends that will make the party a success, so make sure you invite party-lovers. It is equally important to invite males as well as females. Do not ask for too many people. You don’t wish things to get outof hand. It is essential to invite people that will respect your college dorm space party and not destroy or trash it.
The menu is an important part of organizing a dorm party. Drinking under 21 can lead to serious legal consequences. If you’re under 21, avoid drinking mocktails. A dorm-party can be as easy as a couple of beers, seltzers or bottles, if you are old enough. Bottles of alcohol can be used to make shots or mix drinks. Beers and seltzers work well for drinking.
It will be appreciated if you have food available for your guests to enjoy. It doesn’t necessarily have to be fancy. Just a small bite is enough. For an extra fee, your guests can bring snacks so you don’t have to buy more food.
Here are some food suggestions for college parties
Salsa & Chips
Sliders made with Ham and Cheese
Strawberries with chocolate dipped
Pizza, Donuts, Tortilla Wrap-Ups Hotdogs
Enjoy bites of macaroni with cheese mixture at a Party
French Fries with Grilled-Cheeburgers
Many dorms have a strict no alcohol policy. Here are some alternatives to alcohol:
“No”jitos made with watermelon
Pina Coladas (virgin)
Mocktail Frozen Peach Bellini
Sangria made using virgin cranberries.
A crush on Mango and Orange
Iced Blueberry Ginger Tea
Bombastic Music List
A Spotify party playlist can make your college party a success. The topic of your party will determine the type and genre of music you play. But, keeping some Hip Hop classics handy is always a good idea.
This is one of my favorites dorm party playlists. It is a great party music and it never fails to get everyone dancing! If you like Bay Area slaps, you will love this music playlist!
College Dorm Party Games & Activities
If guests don’t know one another well, games can be a great way to get them to feel at ease. Here are some activities that you should do for a college party.
Traditional Beer Pong
Beer pong, a simple but iconic game that you can play at college parties, is beer pong. That scene is probably something you’ve seen in many Hollywood “coming out of college” movies. To begin, you will need to have a large table. Do you have any questions regarding the rules?
Never have I ever consumed alcohol
Another game we loved to play at gatherings is “Never have you ever.” It’s an icebreaker that can be a bit messy, so it’s worth mentioning. Both the adult and kid-friendly versions are available. Whichever fits your mood.
Spin The Bottle Game
I’m sure you’re familiar with the game spin the bottles. When you combine this game with a little bit booze courage, it can be a lot more fun and a lot more crazy, lol! This is a wonderful pre-game activity, to get everyone ready for the party.
Flip cup is probably my favorite drinking game from college. It’s similar to a relay race. Each person drinks one beer, then flips the cup upside down and gives it to the next person.
Here’s how to play it, according Wikihow.
Stage 3: Precautions AND Not-To-Dos
Make sure you keep your valuable item safe.
Drinking alcohol and college students may cause damage to goods or even theft. If things get outof hand, keep valuables out of view at a dorm party. You can store fragile items and any other objects that are not intended to be destroyed safely. It will not only make it difficult to clean up when something breaks but it will also make it more difficult.
Do not Disturb Others
It is essential to control the volume at your party. It doesn’t matter if your neighbors or RA know you are throwing a celebration. However, it is vital that the celebration doesn’t become too noisy. Remember that people will talk over the music, which can lead to even more noise at your dorm parties. Try to keep the volume low and still have fun.
Avoid Over Drinking
Although drinking can be an enjoyable way to relax, it is crucial to drink with moderation. It is best to end the conversation if someone in your party has consumed too much alcohol. It’s easy for someone to lose track how many drinks they’ve had. Remember, you are the one who is responsible for the guests’ drinking habits. The last thing you want to happen at a party is for you to or your guest to become sick and to puke up.
Organise Your Gathering
College students can become drunk, reckless, and aggressive if they drink. It’s important to keep your party under control so that you avoid any negative consequences. Maintaining control of the party should not be a problem if your friends behave respectfully and it should be a lot of fun. You should never openly invite strangers. Even though throwing large parties can be very fun, it is more likely that people you don’t even know will cause trouble.
