One of the most important rituals for college students is throwing the most memorable college dorm party celebration. There is no better method to commemorate the occasion or let off steam from the stress that college brings than to just let loose with your fellow students and all the other guests who came with them. If you’re looking for ideas, we’ve provided you with the essential elements to throw the perfect party that nobody will ever forget.
TimingThe first thing to be doing is choose the date and time that doesn’t be disruptive to any other major event on campus. For instance, if there’s an enormous bar crawl taking place and you want to host an event at the same date. A party that is the go-to place after an event can be a good idea to launch your celebration, but make sure to do your best to avoid clashing with other events and parties on campus.
Then, you can start to promote! There’s no celebration without people. Make sure you have your cell phone handy and announce the event via social media. Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat (if you’ve not deleted your application) are the most effective ways to connect with your students (because nobody is using Facebook nowadays?). You can create an account with your room’s number or address, and then post your details to your personal story. If you’re not a fan of an invite-yourself post, invite anyone who is who are interested to DM you to take more control of the people who show up at your big party.
Be sure to not invite males or females It is essential to have an equal amount of both, so make sure to invite as many girls as you can since they will always have friends to share and the same goes for guys. Get as many guests as you can.
If you’re lucky enough to have guests it’s likely that you’ll get some tag-a-longs and randos. This is part of the responsibilities of being a great college dorm party host. You will hear about it on the grapevinethat someone will invite their friends from their next college and that man you recall of from French 101 will show up and devour all the food. Prepare yourself for everything to explode and in a good way.
It’s also a good idea to be aware of your capacity to the max. You don’t wish your party to be closed before all the party commences, be aware of the number of people you could comfortably accommodate and also have a guest assist you in keeping track of the number of party goers who walk through the door.
Make your most popular and Greatest List of Playlists. That means all the classics, some brand new tracks that only music enthusiasts know about, and a few popular songs that take you back to the dances of middle school. Pick a mix of tunes that can generate a lot of excited and others that allow everyone the chance to unwind and bop along with the music. Be sure to choose the best tracks for the most crowded time of the event, as you don’t want to lose your most popular tunes in the first day when the crowd is just beginning to trickle into.
Get Loaded Up with Snacks. After you’ve made the perfect playlist it’s time to stock up on snacks. The guests love to satisfy their cravings for snacks with a light fair. It’s impossible to get it wrong with chips, pop, dips, Guac, microwave-cooked boneless wings, or even sweets. Are you looking for something new? You can create small finger meals like meatballs or spinach dip. For the older crowd with a sweet tooth , consider buying a bag of gummy bears and soak them for a night in peach schnapps or vodka. Sweets and buzz? Sounds like a perfect match in heaven!
As we’re discussing the subject of alcohol, it would not be a college dorm party without alcohol. It’s possible to make punch using the liquor that you like and then punch or serve shots and beers for the guests. Keep a few on hand to check how much alcohol is consumed and stop any guests under the age of 18 from getting drunk. Get lots of plastic shot glasses and cups to ensure that your guests don’t end up with drinking out of the bottle and exchange germs. It’s not fun. Make sure to provide enough food so that everyone gets their desired high. It’s not fun to host a party when someone is drunk to the point of blackout and then becomes sick or injures themselves or someone else But the most enjoyable events are those that are fun and where everyone gets loose and enjoys themselves.
On the other hand make sure you avoid the drug scene. A large number of high or stoned people could quickly become depressed and ruin the mood of the gathering.
There’s no doubt that there will be a few wallflowers at your event initially So, make sure to meet anyone who comes-after all, you didn’t have to! Give them a big hug even if have a relationship with them or think of them highly and introduce them to others who will make them feel at ease.
Speak jokes, listen to requests for songs, make hilarious announcements, or challenge participants to games whatever you want to! It’s your chance to be a little silly and make everyone enjoy themselves with you. When everyone’s loose and has a blast, everything will be to be ten times more enjoyable.
