The 19 Types Of People You See At Every College Party

Red cups? Check.

1. The Professional Beer Pong Player

For this person, beer pong is not a game. It's a way of life. Their heart beats to the splash of the Ping-Pong ball. They hold everyone strictly to "house rules" and they will probably yell at you.

(Or "Beirut," calm down.)

2. The One Who Dressed Weird for No Reason

Maybe he's wearing a fake beard, a wig, a cape, or a very special hat. Maybe he even rented a gorilla suit. Thing is, it's not Halloween. It's not even a theme party (which, in college, is rare). And nobody really knows why he's doing this. "Party time" is reason enough.

3. Deep Convo Spiraler

Are you ready to get real? Because this person is drunk and just took Philosophy 101 so get ready for some truth bombs. And if you don't like truth bombs, better hide in the bathroom because the minimum time on this conversation is five hours.


6. Overdressed Fancies

Obviously, everyone should wear whatever they want. But 5-inch heels seem like an odd choice for an unfinished basement where everyone is drinking Everclear and Kool-Aid out of plastic cups.

7. The Scallywag

If someone passes out at a party, there's never a question in anyone's mind as to what should be drawn on their face. It's gonna be a penis. Every time.

Rest assured, these are the same people who build snow penises on the quad.


13. The Singer

The Singer is belting out today's hottest top 40 hits whether you like it or not. Either that or instigating a Radiohead singalong. Have you ever heard 20 drunk people screaming the lyrics of "Karma Police"? Oh, you have? I'm so sorry.


18. The People That Tell Everyone They Want to Dance

Whether there's dancing or not, they will let you know that they want to dance. Probably more than once. "We wanna dance!" they'll say. And then someone is supposed to do something about that.
