The Dark Side of Party Culture in College

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the definition of culture is “ideas, customs, and social behavior of a particular people or society.” Party Culture could lead to a social gathering situation where people participate in parties. 

Lauren Kiskunes, University Wellness Intern at Georgia Southern University, explains how the party culture influences you, and takes you in the wrong direction. It encourages you to have a wonderful time in your life, impress your friends, and enjoy the college experience through binge drinking, which relates to social pressure.

“Unfortunately I feel as if party culture challenges you to push your limits as well because you want to see how much fun you can have,” said Kiskunes. “How much you can drink with your friends, and a lot of it is sponsored by peer pressure.”

The Consequences of College Party in Academic Performances

According to NIH, 2023, “about 1 in 4 college students report experiencing academic difficulties from drinking, such as missing class or getting behind in schoolwork. In a national survey, college students who binge drank alcohol at least three times per week were roughly six times more likely to perform poorly on a test or project as a result of drinking (40% vs. 7%) than students who drank but never binged. The students who binge drank were also five times more likely to have missed a class (64% vs. 12%). ”

Positive Consequences of College Party

Kiskunes explained the positive consequence of the College Party. It brings people all together and invites their friends to join in. It is also motivates to develop new friendships where it improves your social skills. College parties support the development of economy including allowing jobs that are suitable for bartenders, and bouncers.

“I feel like party culture invites everyone, it is a chance to relieve stress and let loose whether you are drinking or not,” said Kiskunes. “It typically involves some type of dancing, which is fun too, express yourself … and it also gives you a chance to hang out with your friends and meet new people so you develop social skills.”


College parties are a great way to meet new people, form long-lasting friendships, and increase your self-esteem. It may also be useful for you to look for new employment options. However, there are serious implications if you choose to misuse drugs and alcohol. College partying may have an influence on your bad performance in academics. It's fine to have fun, but be cautious.
