The 5 Stages of a College Party

By Mia Renee Cole - Oct 04 2015

1. The “Extremely Awkward” Stage


Before the party gets pumped, everyone just kind of awkwardly stands around trying to get conversation going with friends and strangers.

2. The “Music Gets Bumpin’” Stage

Everyone is beginning to feel more loose and comfortable with each other at this stage and the dancing begins.

3. The “Drank Runs Out” Stage


The most inevitable stage of any college party: you mean I have to drink water now?

4. The “Boy Meets Girl” Stage

The night is beginning to finally wind down and that cute person you’ve been dancing with all night finally makes a move.

5. The “Hitching a Ride Back Home” Stage

Either walking or getting a ride, you eventually make it back to your own bed. How you got there remains one of the biggest mysteries of the night.
