Silent disco parties aren’t just for corporate events, yoga retreats, and wedding receptions. They’re for college parties, too. In fact, a silent disco is an off-beat celebration perfect for college students.
Here’s why we think they’re great.
Bring people together.
A party or an event brings people, right? Of course. But a silent disco, like, really brings people together in a way that a standard party or event can’t. If you’re going to dance silently to a bunch of tunes, it’s safe to say you’re going to bond with a few people over the encounter. Throw some glow sticks and sunglasses in the mix and you’re bound to meet your next best friend at a silent disco.
Make the weekend memorable.
There are only so many times you can have a dorm, apartment, or frat party. Only so many times you can guest bartend or throw a social at a local bar. Yes, socializing at college is fun but sometimes, it needs to be memorable too. Do something different and throw a silent disco. While this kind of party may be silent, it’ll have people talking for weeks.
Get acquainted with college.
If you’re looking for the perfect icebreaker game, you’ve found it. Throw a silent disco party the last night of orientation to give incoming students a taste of college and you’re bound to get them excited. It’s easy, fun, and will definitely loosen everyone up. Once the mood is lightened, students are more apt to make new friends in the midst of goofy dance moves.
Do some good.
Are you a fraternity brother or sorority sister raising money for your philanthropy? A student looking to do some good other than get A’s? A silent disco is a one-of-a-kind way to attract people, bring awareness to your cause, and have a little fun. Hold a dance marathon or just use Party Headphones as an add-on to the main charitable event. Either way, students will be so into it, you’ll have to kick them off the dance floor.
College students have enough stress with classes, tests, and presentations. When it’s time to unwind, a simple and fun activity is usually what wins out on the weekend. All you need to do is rent a bunch of headphones and a transmitter, round up some friends, and hire a DJ or use someone’s Spotify playlist. Literally, that’s it.
