Niche Themes For Your Next Penn State Party
There comes a time in every Penn Stater’s life when you must attend a themed party. Whether it’s a frat party, a THON bonding shindig, or a social for a weird club you just joined, we all know the dread of having to attend another ill-themed get-together.
Alas, you dig through your drawers and pull out the Bryce Harper jersey you’ve spilled too many beers on, the Hawaiian shirt you bought off the T.J. Maxx clearance rack, or the extra pair of sheets your mom packed you (read: toga).
But here’s the thing — society has progressed past the need for the toga party. In fact, most party themes are overdone and out of date.
So, we compiled some fresh new party theme ideas that we can guarantee you’ve never heard of.
Everybody has two options:
- Show up dressed as a beaver.
- Show up dressed as a stadium.
This theme can be as simple or as extravagant as you make it. For the beaver option, you can opt to wear brown from head to toe, or you could buy a full beaver suit from Amazon. If you choose to dress as a stadium, you could simply wear a jersey, or you could get crafty and construct a full stadium out of cardboard. You get out what you put in.
Surely, you’ve tasted one of Irving’s’ smoothies. There’s Joe Papaya, Going Green, and Laguna Peach, just to name a few. To make it easy, everyone could dress as the color of their favorite smoothie. To spice things up, you could get a little bit more specific. For example, dress as your favorite famous Joe and bring a basket of papayas with you.
State College Bars
You can get really creative with this one since there are so many bars to choose from. People could dress as a pickle, a dog, a national champion, a barista, or even the junk in your basement. The options are endless.
At one point or another, everyone had one of those ugly New Student Convocation shirts that were specific to your academic college. You probably only wear it to sleep, or maybe you don’t wear it at all. Maybe you cropped it or cut the sleeves on it to make it look better. Maybe you switched majors and it’s not even your college anymore. Dig it out and put it on. If you got rid of it, make a new one.
For this one, the partygoers will have to split up into two teams: the White Loop and the Blue Loop. You’ll need some cardboard to construct your buses. Once the two teams are lined up in bus formation, they’ll race around the party. The winning team gets to choose the next party’s niche theme.
Next time you get invited to another boring theme party, don’t complain — offer alternatives! Once you forget about Hawaiian shirts and jerseys, the possibilities are endless.
Cheers, party animals!
