College is the only place that it is acceptable to get drunk while wearing a toga. As time has passed the college party scene has totally evolved and with that evolution comes more creative and witty themed party ideas. Everybody loves a good toga party but it’s always fun to change it up a little and do something a little more out of the box while still allowing guests to not have to splurge on a very expensive costume for just one night. So, here are some of the best themed college party ideas straight out of real life college experiences and (of course) Pinterest.
- Classic Toga
This has to be number one on the list because hello? Everybody loves a good toga party and I can use my Target bed sheets as my toga for the night. It’s cheap, it’s simple, and it always guarantees shirtless dudes. This is especially fun for those of you who go to colleges that have a popular Greek life community. Shots because Brutus was just as cute as Caesar? Bring on the gold spray paint!
- Ugly Sweater
Wait so there is finally a reason to go out in oversized clothes? This party theme is best for the cold months when you’ll take any excuse to bundle up and drink away the winter blues. Also, you probably secretly love the sweater your aunt gave you for Christmas and now have an excuse to wear it because other people think it’s ugly *which it is.*
- Decades Theme
Whatever the decade you choose the party will definitely be off the chain. Decade themed college parties are the best because they give you the opportunity to wear your mom’s old leg warmers or maybe even pull out the choker you rocked back in 1995. Old school style is trendy anyways so it’s kind of like you’re dressing fashionably while still getting drunk with your friends.
- Sports Theme
Do you score a goal in hockey or throw a pitch? Who cares you can dress up like your favourite hunky athlete and drink beer because you don’t actually have to play any sports in order to enjoy this theme. Boys usually take this theme very seriously and will come fully decked out in their football or hockey uniform or whatever it is that you go and cheer at anyway. Sports and guys? Best combo ever.
- Guys in Ties & Girls in Pearls
The only reason this is on the list is because it gives you an excuse to wear your prom dress again. College is four years of sloppy but this theme gives you the opportunity to have at least one night of dolled up fun, well until the wine bottle is done anyways. Getting dressed up is fun and getting dressed up to drink lots is even more fun. Will you be Marilyn or Audrey?
So there you go, five great college themed parties for you to explore. Themes aren’t for everyone and sometimes it is nice to just throw on a pair of jeans and drink cheap wine on the couch. However, college is a great time in which partying in a bed sheet is acceptable. Take advantage.
