13 Types Of People You Meet At College Parties

The predictable cast of characters you know and love.

13 Types Of People You Meet At College Parties
Ian T. McFarland

As fun as college parties are there seems to be a consistent cast of characters who function as an ever present force amongst the group. Without further ado, welcome the contenders from 2017!

1. The Flailing Man

Similar to the Running Man, but often with much less coordination. Sometimes the music just speaks to you, and the unavoidable urge to fling your limbs in every which way takes over. At least, that seems to be the case for this specific breed of partier.

2. The Straw Seductress

This person came on a mission, and they aren't returning home alone. Usually it's the look in their eyes, or the seductive (and unnecessary) use of a straw that labels them as a Straw Seducer. Either way, nobody will stand between them and their late night target.

3. The AUX Commander

This person holds the AUX cord, also known as the supreme lord of the party. He or she can make or break a vibe. They come in two variations: Chad, who plays only remixes of already questionable songs, or Brock, who sticks to Top 40 and classic rock his dad introduced him to.

4. The Assistant Lieutenant To The AUX Commander

Also known as the Assistant Manager To The AUX Commander, this position is also of the utmost importance. He or she provides the Commander with an occasional cold beer (both to maintain their drunk-ness and appearance of coolness) and takes requests from the crowd.

5. The Beer-tender In Residence

He or she is appointed for their "skills in mixing drinks," which mostly involves accuracy in tossing beer cans across a crowd. They're the supreme ruler of the mini-fridge or sink, and therefore hold a high ranking position.

6. The First Timer

"I frequently partake in expensive wine while dining with my parents," they say, as they take their first sip of Natural Light.

7. The Ball and Chain

The one person in your group who cannot 1) control her alcohol intake and 2) doesn't realize when she's overdone it. Often the person who has to be airlifted out of the party by her doting group of followers or, if she's unlucky, campus security.

8. The Door Man

Usually one of the tipsier males at the party, who ends up needing to take that seat outside the door. His job is mostly to make scarily deep eye contact with every passerby.

9. The Sweat Ball Extraordinaire

Everyone sweats, but these people really take the cake for slimiest member of the dance floor. Nothing has been known to harm the sweat ball more than direct light. Beware!

10. The Walking Wardrobe Malfunction

Clubbing attire is no joke, except when your tube top is four sizes too small. The Walking Wardrobe Malfunction can often be found adjusting her boob tape and yanking her mesh skirt up as to avoid the ultimate disaster.

11. The Designated Babysitter

For this unlucky character they often find themselves in a sea of drunks, floating along as the lone sober watchdog. To these hero's many of us owe our lives. We salute you, mighty babysitters.

12. Mr. Independent

This boy ain't need no girl (or friends in general) to go out and have a good time. This party type is often found standing against the wall making eye contact with everyone, seemingly in a bid to attract people to his dance circle of one.

13. The Beer Pong Star

This particular person never wanders further than five feet from the table since they cannot risk losing their position on the podium. This type of partier usually has their own "touchdown" dance, which they showcase when they make it in the cup, which typically also includes noises.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
