As college students around the world are finding themselves giddy with excitement to get back into their pedestrian dorms, the first week back always brings some of the best parties of the year.

As the best case scenario consists of frat houses filled with warm beer and women who couldn’t hit a dance step to save their lives, students often times employ gimmicks to give their pedestrian fests a little sign of life. From pimps and hoes parties to jello wrestling extravaganzas, these events may be the pinnacle of life for most.

Here are the best college party themes.


10. Blacklight Graffiti

If you’re a freshman in college chances are you will find yourself at a black light party at some point this year. The concept is simple and the end result is always messy. Just throw on some white clothes, grab a high lighter, and before you know it girls will be begging you to draw on them. PS… Avoid strip clubs before hand. You don’t want any random streaks on your denim.

9. The Construction Site

Look at these young attractive college girls all dressed up in their work gear and ready to lay some pipe down. At a construction themed party the general rule is to give free shots to anyone wearing a hard hat, not bad right? Steer clear of tight jeans on this night, unless you want to look like a member of the Village People.

8. Anything For A Buck

This type of party is best if your goal of the night is getting some. Generally fake money will be distributed around the party so that people can barter for different things. Generally body shots, lap dances, and a dance can be purchased for $1 in monopoly money. It may not mean much now, but you’d be surprised what people will do for a couple fake bills when they’re intoxicated.

7. Toga Party

If you’ve seen Animal House then you know what usually goes down at a Toga party. While you need some boxers under your toga for pinning purposes, don’t wear anything else under there. The point is to show off your muscles, while girls show off everything else.

6. Ladies In Lingerie

Everyone’s home watching the Victoria Secret fashion show, and you could be having your very own lingerie party with your hot co-ed peers! While the point of the party is, naturally, to get a bunch of drunk, half-naked people together and see what happens, you can always add your own little twist to the party. Girls in high heels get free shots. Always.

5. Jello Wrestling

Jello wrestling is a timeless American past time, and there really is nothing better than seeing two of your hot girlfriends go at it in an inflatable pool of jello. All you need is a ref, a bracket, and wrestlers ready for a good, not-so-clean fight. God bless America.

4. Bros & Hoes

No costumes for the guys, very little clothes for the girls. Get a keg, some condoms, and you’re pretty much good to go. If you’re looking to switch it up there is also the “CEO’s & Corporate Hoes” theme which has also become very popular.

3. Anything But Clothes

Anything but clothes is one of the more genius party ideas we’ve ever come across. Pool floats, flags, beer boxes, bubble wrap, and, yes, plastic wrap are all in play. I just feel for the poor young ladies who must make the walk of shame in the morning dressed in caution tape. Wait, no I don’t.

2. Foam

Have everyone come dressed in swimsuits; anything more is awkward—and not as hot—when covered in foam. Pour some drinks, flip the switch, and you have one foamy, wild night ahead of you. Just make sure you’re surrounded by good company, wouldn’t want to catch something.

1. Seven Deadly Sins

Tell your guests to dress up as one of the seven deadly sins: lust, greed, gluttony, pride, sloth, wrath, and envy. Put all of these together and you are going to have one hell of a party my friend. The person with the best costume wins some gluttony in the form of free drinks.
