College dorm parties are one of the coolest and most popular ideas among college students not just in India but worldwide, and it’s not hard to see why. College dorm parties offer you an opportunity to let loose yourself without having to worry about parents or siblings getting mad at you for making too much noise, getting mad, getting home late, and spending too much money on booze and partying activities.
However, throwing a perfect college dorm party is not always as easy as it seems, especially if you have never done so before in your life.
How Do People Throw Dorm Parties?
What happens is, when you live in a dorm, there are many limitations on what kind of parties you can have. This means that if you want to throw a real and fun party, it’s pretty much going to have to be in your dorm room. But don’t let those cramped quarters intimidate and worry you.
It’s usually not that hard at all for two friends (or even just one) to come up with some cool and creative ways to make a small space feel like a huge open area and once you get in the mood for a fun party planning, it will probably be easy for others too! Below are some ideas.
1. Decide the coolest theme for your dorm party
If you’re looking for a cool and fun theme that’s easy to do and doesn’t require too much work, consider keeping things simple and easy with a white party. You have to hang plain white bed sheets over your walls and let your imagination go crazy and wild.
2. Prepare The Guest List
If you plan to have a large party with all your buddies, you must prepare a proper guest list to keep your friends and family safe. Imagine if too many people show up at your house and there is not enough space and room for everyone. Who do you make stay with and who do you send away? The answer should be everyone should go.
3. Set a Time Limit
If you are throwing a party, be sure to set a proper time limit. Usually, college parties last until all people pass out. A good rule of thumb is to end your college party at Max to max 1:00 AM so you can sleep and do homework while still having fun!
4. Select A Location
First, if you want to host your dorm party in your own room or somewhere else on campus, either way, it will most likely require a proper reservation of some sort (you can’t exactly close off a whole public place), but having access to your own room gives you a lot of privacy that you won’t find it hardly anywhere else.
5. Order Only What You Need for The Party
You can easily order your supplies online or at a local party supply store. It would help if you started by ordering plates, cups, napkins, and plastic ware in colors that match your theme.
6. Acquire Cool And Fun Items For your Dorm Party (Optional)
Some Cool items for your dorm party can include some of those listed above the paragraph, but you could also consider just asking your family and friends for things and items they don’t need anymore.
7. Host Cool and Fun games and activities for your dorm party
As a general rule of thumb, your dorm party should have enough fun and exciting games and activities so that it doesn’t turn into a boring repeat of every other dorm party you’ve ever been to.
8. Include decorations that match your theme accordingly
Only use decorations that match your party theme. If you’re having a hard time coming up with some cool ideas, talk to other people and your friends who have thrown similar parties; they might be able to share their ideas and decorations items.
9. Arrange Transportation (if necessary)
If you’re hosting your party, not in your personal space, it’s a good idea to arrange for transportation and make sure that any guests who have consumed alcohol are accompanied home safely.
Making sure that no one is driving drunk and in uncertain conditions is a great way to be both safe and secure, especially when it comes to student dorm parties.
Make your party a wonderful event that you and all of your guests can be proud of, especially by keeping safety at the forefront of your planning efforts.
10. The Aftermath of the Dorm Party
While most college students choose to stay up all night studying, others choose to have a public social event. At some colleges and universities, dorm parties involve heavy alcohol drinking or drug use. So remember and make sure to create some space for your friends so that they can stay after the party if they want safely and comfortably.
