    Ok so I am a Junior in college now and I own an apartment for the first time. I'm looking for things that I need to get. It's furnished, and top luxury apartment at campus. I want this place to be perfect for parties. I'm pumped about this. Also if you have anything like basics that anyone in an apartment should have please let me know as well. As far as what I already have:

    - Furnished
    - Custom Beer Pong Table w/LED lights.
    - 20+ Posters ordered (along with a HUGE Megan Fox Poster)
    - Liquor galore
    - Lots of Mixers for alcohol (soda, jelly shots exc.)
    - 42" Flat Screen
    - Of course utility stuff.

    I really want this place to stand out. I've went to a lot of college parties, but none have really made me say "wow." Keep everything within a reasonable budget for someone only making 3-3.5k/month (I know its weak, I'll get this up).

    Ideas that I'm thinking about right now:

    - Strobe lights
    - Blacklights (I will definitely get these)
    - Sound system (don't have one yet, definitely a priority. Recommendations?)
    - Blacklight posters (anyone ever seen how they look in blacklights? cool or gay?)

    Thanks for the input.

    Perhaps. I'm excited about moving in and I like to stand out from the rest. Seating is something I hadn't thought too much about. I'll look more into that.

    Make sure you get your bed in order. Sounds like you'd be the type who would like a red, blue, black or purple plush velvet bedspread. Get some fine silk sheets. Forget the posters. Upscale to paintings of wild shit. Cushions and pillows everywhere. Get more money if you're not living off of your parents because I don't think that's going to cover it for the long haul. Alcohol costs add up.

    Alcohol, food, great stereo and ladies is all that's required for a great party IMO.

    Is it a house or a bar?

    PS.: Ladies and booze are the priority of any good party.

    my advice: fuck partying.

    You won't create any memories worth having when you're 40, but you will create hangovers, debt and freeloaders living on your couch.

    Work.

    I promise you won't regret it because there's a huge difference between a bullshit party in college, and knowing that in 2 years if you actually work you'll never have to look back and regret the dumb shit you did in college.

    Not what you want to hear, but that's because you're young and stupid but probably won't see it till your either in prison being someone's bitch or living with your mom at 30 and wondering what the fuck went wrong.

    You can't help it. It's a chemical thing.

    But in 20 years you'll look back and realize I was right.

    Not that partying is a bad thing, but if it's your "plan", you'll end up regretting it.

    Party when you don't have anything better to do, not when you don't have anything at all.

    Lose the homo posters. You don't need those. Get some nice artwork instead. Get some cool artwork that people will talk about. I am assuming you are a guy? If so girls love art work. It doesn't have to be expensive. Look around and you should be able to find some nice already framed stuff.

    Get some condoms. Not for your friends. Screw those guys they can fuck at their own place. Get and keep some for yourself. There is nothing worse than having a girl in your fingertips and then realizing you don't have rubbers.

    Keep a $$ reserve somewhere for new carpet. I guarantee you will be having to replace the carpet when your lease is up.

    Are strobe lights and black lights still popular? Those seem so 1980's. But I guess if they are still in then get them. Otherwise lose them.

    Keep a stash of booze for yourself. For example if you like crown keep a bottle out of sight. If you are supplying your friends the booze only buy shitty stuff. NO ONE knows the difference. This will make a huge difference in your costs. Also always keep some fruity mixers around. Girls always love fruity stuff.

    Buy shot glasses. I mean seriously buy like 40 shot glasses. You can never have enough of these.

    Someone said seating. That is a good idea. Have a huge ass couch and then maybe another couch. People are lazy bastards, they get drunk, they want to sit.

    If you are the one hosting parties all the time get ready for some crazy shit. Get ready for puke in your toilet and on your floor at every single party. Understand that your shit is going to get wrecked. People don't care about you. Drunk people care even less. Hide anything of great value. Don't keep one freaking penny laying around. People will steal your shit. People are going to be coming to your place that you don't know. People will steal your shit. People will find your money stash and steal it all. I figured I would write this here for you in case you didn't know. I had a party once and someone stole a very important watch of mine. I never saw it again. It was worth a shit load to me even though in actuality it was not worth that much money.

    Anyways being the host of the party is always fun. People will know who you are. If you either have decent game or are decent looking you will surely get laid often.

    Goodluck

    Sounds like you don't need ANY of this stuff.... because if you did you would be going to a top party school... which it sounds like you definitely aren't, simply because if you were going to a party school, all of this high end shit would be broken the first night you had a party.

    LIGHT UP BEER PONG TABLE? Dude are you shitting me? beer pong tables get destroyed the first night theyre used by drunkards going ape shit on them by 3 am while rocking out to heavy metal... just get a plastic folding table - you know with the collapsible legs - unless you plan on buying a new one of these fancy noob tables every weekend...

    POSTERS? It's been my experience they go the same route of the beer pong table... and at a way earlier hour I might add...

    And if it wasn't obvious enough, that plasma screen will be destroyed after the beer pong table is kaput. No I'm not bullshitting... I have pictures of such a typical event if you like... where all of the above events have occured on the same night... Welcome to Ohio University - for all you noobs out there, OU is in the top 5 party schools in the nation. These type of nights are a normal occurence. Ask anyone who's gone to college there...

    This isn't high school parties we're talking about here... you need a major reality check


    UMM EDIT? You said you OWN the apartment?? You are really asking for it then. DO NOT HOST PARTIES IF YOU OWN THE PROPERTY. ONLY HAVE PARTIES IF YOU ARE RENTING!

    Guys, you're flogging a dead horse. He didn't come here for life advice and little that you say will change his mind. He wants to fulfill a social need.

    Try to remember what it's like being young.

    Seems like you're just trying to brag but there's nothing cool here.

    Don't invest all this money in your apartment. It will all go to crap. A bud of mine and myself had an apartment when we went to college. They broke our couch, TV, window, door, one of our beds, our COUNTER TOP and much more. Then there's the stolen iPod and money because someone broke into my friends room. Then the worst of all. Waking up to random people on you floor, in your tub, in your BED (not hott girls) and the throw up in the most random places. Just not worth it... go to other parties and let their stuff get abused.

    Hey guys I really appreciate all of the advice from many different directions. I definitely know why I am here at college. I have a 4.0 cumulative and I'm a statistics major. I also haven't had a job in 4 years now. I spend a lot of time making sure that my priorities are in line. I'm scaling up projects now, outsourcing, I've gotten an LLC, and I am making business plans for a Whitehat operation that I anticipate to have great results.

    However, I don't want to get so caught up in my focus on being successful that I don't get to have a fun college experience. I party and go downtown a lot, but I want to have a much better social life than what I have. Don't get me wrong, I am not a loner or anything, I just feel like I have to invite myself to go to hang out with other people all of the time. I think that if I start having parties and stuff then my social life will grow a lot more. People will start asking me what to do and I will get invited to events rather than always seeing what other people are doing. I have already taken big steps - I recently became a cheerleader at my University for instance. If you think that guy cheerleaders are gay you have no clue. They party A LOT and being seen with them makes you look a lot better.

    However, I digress. I do realize that there could be consequences of hosting parties, which I definitely hope not. However, mentioning that things could break means that I should take precautions to try and prevent this from happening. I think I won't go as extravagant as I originally wanted.

    BTW blacklight / strobe light parties are a big hit here. People LOVE them - especially girls. My buddy had one for New Years and it was a big success. That's my style anyway - I like getting people to dance and have fun rather than sitting down and just talking.

    Don't listen to them, get everything you listed.
    But let me know where you live, I need a new place to rob.
    If possible tell me the exact time you will pass out too.
    Anyone trying to be to flashy doesn't deserve the shit they have.

    If you keep your head on straight, sounds like you'll be a god among people (not sure if you're a man or a woman since I haven't actually felt your goodies personally)

    College is and should be fun. Just don't get lost in trying to prove anything and you'll be fine.

    Work more than you want to, and party less than you want to and you'll be fine.

    Don't be a dick and refuse to have fun. Believe me: you can't have fun in as large a dose when you're older as you can when you're young. Your body just can't take it! :)

    But don't forget that it's much better to be a little older and a lot richer than it is to be a lot younger and poor but "trying."

    What. The. Hell. Strobe lights? Jesus.

    This reminds me of the time that a work colleague had to make presentations. Like we are giving them a quote as such about the work we can do, and trying to win the contract. And he was nuts. He would go out and buy smoke machines and lights just for a presentation.

    You mad or something?

    Seriously wtf is wrong with partying? I'd also love to catch someone trying to rob me. It wouldn't go down well for them. BTW my apt has a very good security system and I'm a light sleeper. Try your luck.

    I understand that shit happens but damn you act like if I throw a party it's going to happen. A lot of my friends have had parties where the aftermath is no more than having to clean up cups and beer cans. I have only been to a few parties where something was broken and in almost every case it was because there were like 100 people trying to fit in an apartment and tons of people that they didn't know were there. I don't plan on my parties getting that big and I am not going to leave my door open for just anyone to walk right in.

    As far as expenses goes, ever heard of 5$ for guys? It works extremely well to offset costs.

    I don't think partying every once in a while, or even often, will stop you from working. You're a junior in college and you own your own apartment. You know what you gotta do. He wants to party? Let him party.

    i would listen to some of these guys,

    get a nice pad for yourself, dont get something you have no use for.

    if you wanna party, buy out a bar/club for the night. get them to host a party every month with your name as the party.
    get the djs you want, drinks you want and people.

    its safe and less work.
