FAQs About Planning College Parties

Here are a few FAQs you may have about hosting a college party on campus.

What day of the week is best for a college party?

Typically, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights are the best days to host a college party.

However, it really depends on your campus culture and student schedules. You may want to avoid Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights since most students have classes early in the morning.

What time should college parties start?

College parties usually start around 9 or 10 PM and can go until 2 or 3 AM. However, you should consider your local noise ordinances and the rules of your campus before deciding on a start time.

You may also want to consider starting earlier if you plan on hosting an outdoor party since it may get dark earlier.

What kind of food is best to serve at a college party?

Finger foods are always a hit at college parties. Chips and dip, pizza, sliders, and wings are all popular choices at college parties. You may also want to incorporate the theme into the food of the party too!

What are popular outdoor games for college parties?

Cornhole, giant Jenga, and beer pong are all popular outdoor games for college parties. You can also set up a volleyball net or have a water balloon fight if it's a hot day.

How much does a DJ cost for college parties?

The cost of a DJ for a college party can vary depending on the location and the length of the party.

However, you can expect to pay anywhere from $200-$500 for a professional DJ. You can also save money by creating your own playlist or asking a friend to DJ for the night.

Do you need to have police present when hosting a college party?

It's always a good idea to check with your campus rules and regulations. Some campuses require that you have security or police present at a college party.
