Although this is a summer challenge, on Sunday I'll be back to college so I'm going to write this about college parties :)
Being a student at University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) There are many a parties I have been to. From sorority sleep overs to any theme you can think of, I've probably been there. To my friends and I going out, doesn't even mean just one party, an average day has at least 3 stops before the night ends. I decided to write this post on my 5 favorite types of College parties.
5. Random Party
Everyone's been to them, or at least seen them in any teen or college movie. It happens when you and your friends want to go out, so you text around and see where everyone's going. Get a feel of what parties are going on and then walk around Frat Park until you find a party. Sometimes you get a facebook invite. Sometimes your friend has a friend who's cousin is going to the apartment party of her best friends roommate. It doesn't really matter. These parties are pretty much an open invitation party. They can be fun, but it's mostly a lot of sticky floors and loud strangers. Can be fun if you go out with the right people but they get old really fast.
4. Themed Party
Now themed parties are like random parties with a theme. From Toga to Highlighter these parties are fun to get ready for and unique costumes can be a good conversation starter. The pictures you take at them are fun and there is generally some themed activity. I once went to an around the world party where each room had a different drink to try. It was super creative and fun and you met a bunch of people in each room you entered. These are definitely a great experience, if only to say that you were there!
3. Sorority Party
Meeting guys is fun, but there's nothing quite like a sisters-only party. You don't have to worry about random guys hitting on you, and you can spend the whole night getting to know your sisters more. Some of my favorite nights out are with my sisters.
2. Members only party
When I say Invitation only, I mean more like a club party. Where everyone in a certain organization is invited, Like the people you work with or the people who are in the same club as you. They're supper fun because like Sorority Parties, there are no randos invited. Having a party with just work or club members is a great way to bond and get to know each other better. For an orginization that im in we decided to throw parties as a fundraiser and charge everyone who came $5. It was only for members and their friends, and some of my favorite memories from my first year of college were at those parties.
1. Besties Only Party
Going out is fun but sometimes the best thing to do is hang out with your best friends. Rent a corny movie or pull out a board game and a bottle of wine, and just be with your best friends, doing what you do best.
