You’re in college and you simply must have a college party before Christmas break, but you don’t know what party theme to choose? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve scoured the internet for college theme parties and we came up with a list of top 10 awesome college party themes just for you! It should be easy to pick one and go wild. Make sure you get creative and stay safe!
10. Nothing Beats the Toga Party
If you’re looking for college party theme ideas, you can look for inspiration pretty much everywhere. Take a look at what your colleagues did in 2013, search online for fun and crazy ideas and if you still can’t come up with anything, then we suggest you go with the good ol’ classic toga themed party. It’s cool and it’s cheap, as you only need some sheets to cover your body and no extra supplies.
9. The Future is Now
One of the most popular party themes for college is the Future. It allows everyone to express themselves and make predictions about how the clothes will look like one hundred years from now or more. The Future is a great theme that doesn’t require too much money, so students can even use this theme for their graduation party. Get inspired from movies such as The 5th Element, Bicentennial Man or TV show Extant.
8. Wild Wild West
John Wayne and the Wild Wild West never get old. Shooters and saloon girls all in one place spell FUN and even if this college party theme will require a bit of money to put together, the photos that will come out of it will be priceless. We suggest you buy cheap decorations but invest a bit more in clothing and personal props. You want to look your best, don’t you?
7. You’re An Animal
Dressing up as an animal for a college party can be both funny and fun. The best college party themes always require a bit of drinking, but make sure you drink like a reasonable person and not an animal. There are two routes you can take with this theme: either make it a sexy kitten/lion theme or a stuffed animal/teddy bear theme. Whatever you do, please don’t get any real animals for your party; there will be loud music and noises and no animal likes that.
6. Masquerade Ball
Out of all the college themed parties, a masquerade ball is by far the classiest. Because it only requires a mask, it’s dirt cheap, but make sure you invest more than a couple of dollars on your mask, if you want to look your best. Masks can be fun, but also incredibly creepy. If you’ve watched Eyes Wide Shut, then you know what we’re talking about.
5. Classic Hollywood
A college party will always have that edge that a birthday party will never have. Nothing compares to a college party, to be honest. That’s why, sometimes, you need to add some style to your college party and what best way to do that than with a classic Hollywood theme? Get inspiration from watching old movies with silver screen legends such as: Cary Grand, Rita Hayworth, Bette Davies and Marilyn Monroe.
4. Pick a Movie
To make sure your college party is the bomb, simply choose a movie that a lot of people love or one that is very popular and have it as a theme. You can get a lot of college theme party ideas by simply checking iMDB. How about Avatar or the Godfather? Or something more recent, such as The Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
3. Be Kind, Host a Fundraiser
One of the most unique college party themes is that of a fundraiser. You can still have the time of your life, while raising money for causes that matter to you, your friends or your college. Don’t set the price of the ticket too high, because people might not be able to afford it. Even better, you could ask people to donate as much money as they can.
2. Choose Your Decade
Aside from the Wild Wild West party theme, do you what other theme never gets old? Decade-themed parties! The ’80s will forever be fun to make fun of and the ‘60s can provide inspiration for eternity. So what is it going to be? Puffy hair and neon-colored bracelets or tie-die t-shirts and bellbottoms? Or maybe the flapper decade is more suitable for you and your friends?
1. Formal is the Way to Go
The new way to approach college parties is the formal way. In the words of the wise Barney Stinson, Suit up! Sure, toga parties and animal-themed parties are funky and cool, but now you’re on your way to adulthood and you need to practice as much as you can. Plus, almost everyone looks good in a suit! If you don’t have a suit or a fancy dress, rent one and bring your best game.
