College Dorm Party

College dorm parties are the best. They’re fun and cheap, and you get to hang out with your friends in an environment that is guaranteed safe from any police intervention. But throwing a successful college dorm party can be difficult. Many things must happen before, during, and after the event, so everyone has a good time. Here are some tips on how to throw a successful college dorm party.

1. Get Your Friends Involved

Get Your Friends Involved

The first thing you should do when planning a dorm party is to make sure that all of your friends will attend. If you have a lot of people who don’t want to go, then it won’t matter what kind of party you plan because no one will show up. You may think you know your friends well enough to predict their attendance at a party, but you probably don’t. It’s always better to overestimate than underestimate the number of people who will come. This way, if there aren’t as many people as expected, you’ll still have plenty of food and drinks to enjoy.

2. Decide What Kind Of Party You Want To Have

Decide What Kind Of Party You Want To Have

There are two kinds of dorm parties: ones where everyone gets drunk and does stupid stuff and ones where everyone hangs around and talks about school. You should rent a keg or buy beer if you want the former. Beer is easy to drink (and cheap) and makes everyone happy. However, if you want to keep the party going until late into the night, you’ll need something more substantial. A bottle of vodka or tequila would work great. The key here is to find something that everyone likes. If you’ve never had alcohol, start slowly drinking only soda water. Then move on to club soda mixed with a little lemon juice. Next, try mixing club soda with orange juice. Finally, you can move on to regular soda. Once you’ve found a drink everyone enjoys, you’re ready to move on to more complex liquor. Don’t worry too much about the quality of the liquor, though; the important thing is that everyone likes it.

3. Find Out How Many People Will Be Attending

Find Out How Many People Will Be Attending

Once you’ve figured out what type of party you want, it’s time to figure out how many people will be attending. This is especially true if you’re renting a keg. If you have a barrel, you’d better ensure you’re getting more than half-full. Otherwise, you’ll end up wasting money on empty kegs. Also, if you’re buying alcohol, you’ll want to ensure you’re not paying more than $10 per person. If you’re spending less than this, you shouldn’t have problems finding enough booze to last throughout the party.

4. Make Sure That Everyone Has An ID

If you’re having a keg party, you’ll need to ensure that everyone has an ID. Otherwise, you could run into trouble if someone tries to bring in illegal substances. In addition to ensuring that everyone has an id, you also need to ensure that no one brings in anything illegal. This includes drugs, guns, knives, etc. If anyone brings these items into the party, they’ll get kicked out immediately.

5. Figure Out Where You’re Going To Hold Your Party

The next step is figuring out where you’re going to hold the party. There are three main places to choose from: the standard room, the dining hall, or the basement. Each of these locations has its pros and cons. For example, the formal room is usually pretty big, so you’ll have lots of space to dance. However, the common room is also noisy, meaning you might miss some conversations.

On the other hand, the dining hall usually isn’t nearly as noisy as the standard room, so you’ll hear everything that’s being said. However, the dining hall is also tiny, so there won’t be anywhere to dance. The basement is probably your best bet because it’s between the standard room and the dining hall. It’s large enough to accommodate dancing, but it’s also quiet enough to hear the conversation.

6. Decide What You Want To Do With The Food And Drink

Decide What You Want To Do With The Food And Drink

The final step is deciding what you want to do with the food and drinks. You don’t necessarily have to serve food at your party, but you must provide plenty of beverages. If you’re serving food, you’ll have to decide whether you’re going to cook it yourself or hire someone else to do it. Either way, you’ll need to plan. If you’re planning to cook the food yourself, you’ll first need to figure out what kind of food you’ll serve. Are you going to have pizza? Tacos? Burgers? Or maybe even Chinese food? Whatever you’re doing, you’ll need plenty of utensils and plates. If you’re hiring someone to cook the food, you will need to find someone who can prepare several different types of dishes.

7. Get Ready For The Party

Once you’ve decided what you’re going to do with the food, its time to start preparing for the party:

  1. You’ll need a list of supplies. These include cups, plates, napkins, glasses, forks, spoons, knives, etc.
  2. You’ll need decorations. Whether you’re using balloons, streamers, tablecloths, or something else, you’ll need them.
  3. You’ll need music. Whether you’re playing CDs or downloading songs online, you’ll need some tunes.
  4. You’ll need entertainment. Whether you’re doing karaoke, hosting games, or just hanging out, you’ll need people to entertain themselves.
  5. You’ll need alcohol.

Whether you’re drinking beer, wine, liquor, or something else, make sure you have plenty on hand.
